If Eberflus was to walk?

Recommended Posts

So if Eberflus, was to get offered a head coach job and walked, who could we get to replace him that would be and upgrade?

I kinda doubt Eberflus will get a HC position (or selfishly hope he won't), mostly because of the popular trend to go with offensive minds, but if he does...at first I thought maybe a promotion within the staff...Mike Phair, DL coach, seems to come from the same sort of philosophy as Ballard. Or maybe the LBer coach, Borgonzi. Although neither of them really have any play calling experience...I think Phair was a co-DC for a year at Illinois but not much otherwise.

It's an interesting question though.

John Butler, defensive backs coach of the Buffalo Bills. 

He's in his 2nd year with Buffalo after spending 4 years with the Texans, 2 years with Penn State

 

2018 Buffalo

#1 Pass Def. & #2 Total Def.

 

2019 Buffalo

#3 Pass Def.  & #3 Total Def.

Can’t imagine any team would offer him an HC job with how poor the team is performing.

If Ron Rivera doesn’t get a head coaching job he would be a good candidate.

That would be great, but I don't think so.    He'll be a head coach.

I can't lie I always loved him in terms of D Coordinator. He wasn't a good coach, but can definitely coach up a D.

I would be thrilled if we brought him in.

You know what's amazing? They just played two of the best offenses in the league, and their defensive rankings improved. The Bills D is for real.

I agree, that Def is great.

Penn State almost always has a good defense. The Texans, while Butler was there, was one of the best Defenses, and now he's with the Bills and their Defense is great too. This guy has a track record and I think it would behoove us to bring him onboard.

He wants a head coaching job ,not any offers .Might try to take a d coordinator job in right spot .Then the hope if he does well maybe he gets a offer .

Chuck has done a great job with the Bears, I would welcome him back with open arms.  Make for a great story.

This would be my choice assuming they want to stay with the same scheme.  However I don't think Eberflus is going anywhere.

Nope that defense was better with Fangio.

I would take him.

My biggest problem with bringing Chuck back would be that Ballard would have to almost completely start over in terms of defensive personnel

    • I predict all older QBs go to the Raiders because Gruden loves QBs. Rivers, Brady, and Brees all fight for the starting spot. Vegas puts odds on it. They take turns during the season to keep them fresh and Gruden finally quits scowling and is happy . Lol.
    • You must have reading deficiencies.    I've stated the same thing over and over again.   And you keep getting it wrong.    I have to believe you're smart enough to being that on purpose.   It's part of your Trump-style to arguing and fighting.    Never be wrong.    Never admit to anything.   Change the subject.   Move the goal line.   Always be on offense.    Keep attacking.   What bothers you most about me is that you can't fool me.    I can spot a con artist, and I have.    I hope this gets to your eyes before a moderator removes it.     
    • You see?    There you go again.    That's the whole point.   You pic proves nothing.   Absolutely, nothing.    Saying it does, doesn't make it so.  All it proves is that you have Slingbox -- now.     And, or course,  you ignore what I wrote.    You've not said a word about Slingbox for 5 months.    Until now.   Ignored that fact every time I called you on it.  Have you noticed how many times I've brought up your Slingbox argument that you've never responded to?    Why?    Because you can't.    Why didn't you claim Slingbox 5 months ago?     Why didn't you claim it during the season when the issue surfaced again?     Why did you wait until now,  5 months later?     And even now, with all the endless back and forth,  you STILL CAN'T EXPLAIN IT!     Busted.   Who knows?    Maybe you got Slingbox for Christmas?    Makes no difference.     You have no credibility.    And I've demonstrated that over and over again.     As for another response,  that I sent you?   I have no idea what that is.     Maybe I agreed with you?    Did you ever think of that?    Oh,  why would you ever think that was even possible?   Agreeing with you, or you with me,  is not part of the deal.   Sorry you don't get your way all the time.   Oh, how unfair.....       This is what happens when Control Freaks don't get their way.  
    • Jeudy and Hilton together would be pretty special.  No more holding the ball as if nobody is open. 
    • Love scares you because he didn't have a good 2019 season.    A season in which he lost 9 former offensive starters,  and his coaching staff and the system they played in a very successful 2018 season.      In 2018,  Love completed 64% of his passes for 32 TD's and only 8 interceptions.   Those are quality numbers.     If the numbers were  reversed and his 2018 numbers in 2019,  then you wouldn't be scared of him.       Just remember the circumstances that surrounded the kid this past season.   And he just had a good all-star game playing with talent and better coaching.    You might want to consider that as well.     Just food for thought......
