Re: Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

I would hope that our new owner is smart enough to have at least one experienced NFL "consultant" in his team before finalising a sale for $6bn. Someone who has been evaluating the whole operation since before the sale was completed. I would hate for this to have just been started.

Harris must have pieces of an FO or at least a GM in the shadows that he is “virtually”grooming to take over. My guess is that he has an NFL-tested consigliere type by his side now (along with Rales, Magic), helping to evaluate and formulate plans for new leadership. Somewhere there’s a 40-year old offensive coach or assistant making his bones right now, using this season to put himself on the map. (No retreads, please.)

How Harris treats RR, MM, and the rest during the transition will send strong signals to potential replacements about what kind of owner he is. This doesn’t mean bending over to be nice to everyone, but just being deliberative and decisive when the time comes. The last thing Harris wants is to be seen as a continuation of the impetuous, revolving door administration of Dan.

My guess is that the next GM and HC are under contract now with other NFL teams and that the Harris group will do their homework and work their magic to land them when they’re available for interviews.

Next 10-games = more fan pain, but more clarity on who’s got what it takes to be part of a winning franchise.

Agree with everything except the team will descend into chaos. Didn’t Jonathan Allen, the leader of our defense and team, just say that we have been trash all through Rons tenure and before that?
They are already a crappy team like you said, and apparently not afraid to tell the world they are sick of this shit that never changes.

Do I think that shit canning Ron will help? Probably not because I dont think they have the personnel or an interim that will help. But shit canning Ron certainly will not hurt either. It will probably help with clock management and maybe, just maybe with motivation. Two things, very important things, that Ron is sorely lacking in.

Either way I am of the belief that this is the final year with Snyders trash around. So ride it out, or don’t. Probably doesn’t really matter at this point.

EB needs way more than 7 games calling plays in his career as an OC before anyone realistically should think he deserves an opportunity as a head coach. Hopefully the days of Jim Zorning are behind us

Good post!
Mayhew holds the official title of GM. So they would have to fire him and strip Rivera of any personnel responsibilities (or just fire him too).

MM knows how important o-line play is. He saw it up close. But since he's attached to Ron, he'll most likely be shown the door.

I think Johnson has to be the number one guy on their list for HC.
Mayhew was horrible with the Lions too . . . PASS!!!!!!

Agreed . . . there most likely has already been calls to potential GM candidates too.

I wonder how many HC / GM threads this page has produced over the years

Its time to clean house . . . very thoroughly!!

Absolutely the first move that should be made. It is possible he has his sights on someone currently employed though. Either way it is move 1, before the season ends or after, but I wouldn’t rush to get someone in there. If he wants to wait until the offseason Im fine with it actually.

Almost as many as new quarterback threads.

Why does that matter? Some of the best GMs have never stepped foot on an NFL field. Analyzing talent and understanding economics have zilch to do with athletic ability.

The only thing that matters is, is she hot?
