I feel pretty meh about Marrone. I'm hoping that the Casserly/Woody crush on him doesn't color the interview process too much.. I wonder if they are seriously considering other candidates.
Also, am I wrong in thinking that the Jets job isn't a terribly different situation from the Buffalo one? Both have a couple good pieces but no quarterback. Bills defense probably has better personnel.
I understand not being thrilled with the idea of going down the same DC path, but you want to pick the best candidate regardless of where they come from. The important thing is that the next coach takes responsibility for the whole team. Being on the same page with the next GM would be nice too.
step 1: promise Max he'll be a good boy.
step 2: spend a few weeks making valid observations and doing some seemingly innocent ribbing.
step 3: step up the trolling and rehash the same tired shtick that gets the marks all angry.
step 4: cause enough chaos to get banned and retreat into the void where he will wait to rise like a sh*t-phoenix.
Agreed. I fall into the camp that thinks this is going to be good for him in the long term. He's still got miles to go in terms of being a corner but he's getting by on athleticism and instincts right now. I'd like to see him be a guy that can play three or four positions in the future.
The Andy Reid/MM era in Philly was full of weird goalline plays. My old roommate is a huge Eagles fan and the goalline shovel pass and refusal to stick with what has been working all game were staples of that regime.
