If Eberflus was to walk?


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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

Nope that defense was better with Fangio.

I'd want Ron Rivera but I think he'll end up somewhere in the NFL or a big college HC position.

 

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

    • We shall see. I think if he does anything close to what Lewis did last year he will stick. Lewis wasnt incredible but he did show the tools they thought he had when they drafted him. We need that same thing from Banogou this year or its probably curtains.
    • And as announcers have said, at home we swept, Mets, Dodgers, Padres, and Cardinals. Need reds to be help this week against brewers    And tomorrow starts a series with the Mets in NY. @NFLfan are you going to go to any of them? I saw the tickets were cheap.    I am going to the Marlins Cards game on Tuesday, close to home, in the second section from home. Will be my 5th game there this season. 7th overall   And will give a recap of AZ tomorrow, since I got back   
    • Agree with most of this, but Tannehill's accuracy was never really an issue. Those Miami teams he played for were just bad lol. Some horrible OLs. They finally started building the team correctly, and even Fitzmagic looked good.   Looks like TN is going all-in a bit for the next couple years, so wouldn't be surprised to see their O ask more from Tannehill. Running the wheels off Henry will only get you so far.
    • I wasn't big on landing Wentz but having said that sometimes a change of scenery can change a QB's career. Get with the right team = great run game, good coach than many things can change. There wasn't anyone that ever mentioned Ryan Tannehill as a top 15 QB when he played for the Dolphins, he was considered average by most and many Dolphins fans thought he was bad. Look at him in Tennessee though with Henry and better coaching. He went from average at best to good in most peoples minds. His accuracy is a lot better in Tennessee and with Henry being the focal point that allows Tannehill to make less mistakes and use play action effectively.    In reality, Wentz even has more physical tools than Tannehill has.
