In today's league teams can become contenders over night, it just takes some smart personnel moves and $$.

On the other side of the ledger, you have myriad teams that have done it in three years roughly. Detroit best example IMO. Seattle is a good one like GTripp pointed out. Others have been pointed out as well.
So you think any of those teams could overcome a $36 million dollar cap penalty and losing their starting QB to a season ending injury? If one of these two things had not happened, then I would agree with you. But I don't think any team can overcome both.

I'm sure with a better cap situation, we would have an improved o-line or secondary or better ILBs

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

The "Stupid Meter" always explodes when things are bad. Most of the same people were saying the same things last year before the run.

Honestly, I don't think such a run happens again this year. Something seems to be missing.

To assert, however, that teams can "turn things around" in two or three years is such a vague statement as to be pointless. Hey, we "turned things around" last year and won our division for the first time since '99. Neither Oakland nor Cleveland has turned anything around just yet. You want to say Cleveland is better than us? Maybe/Maybe not. Oakland? Pshaww. I think they are finally on the right track but have a lot further to go than us. Check back in 3 or 4 years and we can discuss if these traditionally horrific franchises have acheived sustained success and really turned the corner or if this is just their latest incarnation of false hope.

BTW - TBay only turned things around after Dungy built a team, left and let Gruden ride it to the SB - have they since sustained the turnaround? Most teams, however, don't break out of mediocrity in a couple years and sustain success. Most fall back to mediocrity.

... and now two of the three are back in the throws of mediocrity and, in the case of TBay, a debacle that will only grow.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

yeah but if your really looking to be "GREAT" for 10 plus years that just doesn't happen anymore, unless you have Brady or Manning. It's hard to be a legit contender for so many years

The Saints turned things around and the reversal stuck (except for a hiccup last year). But they have Brees.

And then there is us, defending NFCE champs. Despite the many forks being stuck into us, we're not done yet.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

The irony is Mike has a team very similar today to what he took over four years ago i.e. very limited depth along the oline and several other positions, but enough starting talent we should be competing in every game. Talent isn't the issue. Coaching, throughout the week and especially on game day, is the problem. And I really don't think anyone has good intuition how we get better in that regard with Mike at HC, at least I haven't seen any good ideas here. It's all FUBAR because of intertwined family dynamics and frankly Mike hasn't put together a solid coaching structure since his days with Elway.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

Most examples of teams turning around equate to finding a QB. NO got Drew Brees, Arizona got Kurt Warner, Detroit had their QB in Mathew Stafford, he was just always injured early in his career (went on for several seasons). Once he overcame those and was able to finish seasons, they started winning a fair amount. Even in TB, Freeman played pretty good for one year, but the ownership decided to blow it up during the uncapped year and had a lower payroll than most SEC teams that year.

Which always brings me back to the fact that we dodged a bullet with Gabbert. Who a large amount of people wanted here and cursed Shanny for trading down and grabbing Kerrigan. I can only imagine the get rid of Shanny threads right after that draft. RG3 is off so far this year, which is understandable at this point (injury, no offseason or preseason work). Lets face it, if he is on, we win against Detroit and Dallas. Still should have won against Detroit even with him not being 100%. If people think Detroit is a good team, then we cant be that far off. Which goes against what most people are saying.

Our LBs are a problem.

Now in each case (except Oline) we're talking about adding maybe one guy to steady the corps but we've been playing literally with a shoestring budget for two years now.

We're better at each spot with the 36 mil. We have a RT for sure and probably a new center. A Safety surely and at least one LB and CB

That's enough to change this team incalculably.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

This team is not as bad as eveyone says. We won the divison championship last. The problem is this "sky is falling" media makes it seem that we are one step from total disaster.

We need a quality number 2 reciever, a solid safety, and a kick returner. The line is bad but they can be better they proved it last year. Confidence is low it reflects on the field.
Bring in Chris Rainey.

earlier I agreed with GOAT about the turn around with teams and didn't agree w u, Now I agree with u and not him on talent for this team lol.

Lack of talent is the issue folks, besides Garcon who else is a threat at WR?? Nobody. We r relying on a rookie TE to make plays. Morris is really our only good RB (HELU cant' block)

And our D has very limited talent, Riley, RK, Coefield and Hall are the only guys playing good this yr so far.

While our WR corps could use some help, Garcon isn't the only threat like you suggested. Santana Moss is fast, reliable, and caught quite a few TDs last year. Hankerson is big, fast, and has good hands; currently he's second on the team in yards and TDs, and leads in yards per catch. It's not just Garcon.

Lack of talent is part of the issue, but a big reason Shanahan hasn't been able to field better talent is because of the cap penalty. I definitely think the team is more talented than when Shanahan took over.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

did u see Moss anywhere sunday night? I love the guy and he's always been a true gamer but he isn't involved much anymore

and Hank had a perfect Pass to him and he dropped it right in his chest on a crucial play late in the game
