NFL Black Monday comes fast and furious especially when teams have failing records. Sad Tuesday ensues when teams and coaches begin to realign. But Welcome Wednesday comes along when the courting begins and the interviews line up. Pages are turned and new allegiances formed.
Doug Marrone has opted out of his contract and has become a free agent. Where will he land in 2015? Will he return to the Jets and take Jim Schwartz with him? Bill Polian will be taking over as Bills team president/football czar. The move is expected to be announced in January.
Rex Ryan will interview for the head coaching positions with the Falcons and the 49ers. If he is hired at either team, which assistants will he retain? Which assistants will leave if they were expecting head coaching positions? For example, what will Vic Fangio do if Rex is hired in San Francisco? Fangio interviewed for the head coaching position today. Also, does Rex tempt Rob to coach with him in either place or just game plan against him in the NFCS?
Rob believes Rex has it all. “First of all, I think he’s got more football knowledge than anyone coaching in this league,” Rob said of Rex. “We’ve been around it our whole lives and it’s genuine. Then you see a guy who is so good with the media. He’s got such a great personality. He is himself. He enjoys himself. But he’s also smarter than all these gurus out there, too. So, he’s got everything … I don’t think there’s a better defensive coach in the league than Rex.”
The Redskins and Jim Haslett have parted ways. Who fills this vacancy and where does Haslett go?
All intriguing questions.
Will Aaron Kromer return to the Crescent City? Are there any hurdles he must overcome to be trusted by Sean Payton again? There are rumors our own defensive back coach Wesley McGriff is leaving for Vanderbilt’s defensive coordinator job. Could this mean Dennis Allen comes back to the New Orleans Saints? We will keep you informed on this page’s twitter stream. What are your thoughts on these coaching changes? Where will they land? What will happen on Airline Drive?
