Add Kevin Carter to the 'For Munchak' pile.
^^ Just read that.
Sometimes being a great coach just means being a great leader and inspiring the players to believe in you. If we can get a great defensive coordinator I think we'll do well because the players seem to like Munch.
Heimerdinger can scheme and put up points, we just need to fix some holes on defense.
So the success of next season seems to be hanging on who we put at QB.
I don't see any good options besides Kolb and Orton but do to the dispute Orton might be off the table.
Munch is smart, he's been very good at what he has been asked to do. He is very much respected.
A Munch coached team will probably be a hard nosed team.
It is becoming clear to me that the selection/appointment of our new coordinators may be more important than the HC, if only because it has been so blatantly obvious and predictable as to what Bud's plans are. This has me more nervous than anything because that is where some outside blood would really help, especially at DC.
If Munch is a Fisher clone, all he really needs is to be willing to adjust. That was Fishers downfall. I like how people are backing Munch, it gives me confidence in him.
But we need outsiders for the coordinators, the article where it was admitted by Hope we don't focus on small things, the fundamentals. This is why I hope we get a guy from a team that has been a dominate defense for a long time, ie: Steelers or Ravens
Somw additions I want added to our staff if Munch does get the job:
QBC: Jim Zorn
HBC: Sherman Smith
OLC: Bruce Mathews
DC: Jim Mora Jr.
And a new safety would be nice too. I don't get his comments...so after playing that long he still needs a coach to show him the fundamentals? That is pathetic.
I don't think we'll get Matthews. I recall reading somewhere, he just signed another new contract with Houston.
I'd take Mora and Zorn, although they are both player friendly I think they've learned from the school of hard-knocks during their HC stints that they need to keep some control.
Matthews extend his contract to be an offensive assistant but has said he wants more responsibly. Moving him to OL coach would be a promotion therefor we can offer him a job provided the Texans don't block our attempt
I wish I had a list of which assistants were extended by Fisher. I'm betting everyone of them will be on Munchak's staff if he is HC. (I don't see Bud paying for more duplicity.) All this "endorsement" stuff is a bunch of "spin" by the FO to warm everybody up to the stale idea of hiring from within.
