Now Douglas seems to be the impediment to not hiring the HC that Woody had been chasing for years. If we don’t hire a winner here, we’d have been better off letting Maccagnan ride out a failure 2019 season, and perhaps find a different GM after he got fired in January. It would’ve happened by then after his last saving grace (Darnold) still looked like nothing, his next #3 pick DT pick looked like a whiff as a rookie, his high 3rd round edge rusher wouldn’t have been cut before his rookie season but would’ve shown how bad he is during that year. Oh yeah, and Le’veon Bell flopping, Osemele turning out to be damaged goods, and more. So he’d have been fired after the season anyway. Just saying, on top of his multitude of GM mistakes (even with his GM hits, like a couple good trades) the great Douglas hire may lead to extended investment in Darnold and missing out on the HC in Harbaugh Woody’d have hired by now. Just figuring it’s a safe bet any HC Woody would’ve hired on his own is by definition a bad hire, and Douglas saved him (and us) from a big name but an ultimately bad hire in Harbaugh. Hope this is the case. Time will tell, and we’ll see the new HC’s name soon enough. But I’m just throwing this out there. Do we know that Harbaugh actually wanted to leave? Or, was this a pure leverage play from him. Pretty sweet gig he's got there, keeps getting paid to be an abject failure at his one job - beating Ohio State. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
