    I’m curious if you think NO other NFL HCs hire their buddies? I’m not defending Vrabel or the coordinators. If they suck and he can’t get it fixed it will get them all fired. But make no mistake, the NFL is one big swingers club.

    Not at all, if they're good at what they do. But there was no reason to think Bowen could help improve this defense after what we saw from last year with him.

    This has also been the norm with Vrabel, he hires from within almost exclusively. At least bring in a new guy every once in a while for a fresh set of eyes. Or maybe that's what he doesn't want and he just wants a buch of yes-men.

    Agree.
    If if he’s not gonna bring in somebody new, he has to realize he just risked his own job to keep a friend who proved inefficient in Bowen.

    To the other point before, apparently this mentality is common to a certain extent. Mularkey was fired almost exclusively because he refused to s**tcan Biscuits. I mean, that’s some friend loyalty.

    Yep, Mularkey committed career suicide. It wasnt just losing his HC job for a friend.. he lost his HC job, had to drop all the way down to TE coach, then just retired. I hope Biscuits is helping him out with retirement money.

    If memory serves, Munch would not fire Bruce Matthews.

    IMO the defense didn't play great but didn't play real poorly either. Their guys for the most part just made plays. The egg laid was on offense where play calling, scheme (ahhh Jones is pretty good and you know that going in) and the preparation was awful. Max protect and let your guys make plays. Didn't see that all game. We finally have two stud WRs and we play like Kendall Wright and

    Look at what other teams gave up on defense. Bears lost 34-17, Vikings gave up 27 points in a loss, 49ers gave up 33 points in a win. Falcons lost 32-6 and they have Dean Pees as their DC.

    On the bright side Fulton, Tart, Murchinson, Roberson played well.
    Core guys like Evans, J Brown, Autry and Dupree sucked.
    One TD where Molden was left one on one with no S over the top was on the defensive call.

    My biggest concern is if the OC is braindead enough, despite Lewan getting beat repeatedly, doesn't have a problem with Lamm (a guy probably not 100% back from an elbow injury) going one on one he needs to be fired. No excuse for that. Unbelievable. Defense might be the least of my worries right now.

    This is what happens when you don’t play or even really practice, it is obvious Lewan is out of shape and not ready. There was NO continuity between Tannehill and JJones or the offense in general. Nothing can replace actual game reps. Not playing at all during the preseason is another coaching error on a list I can no longer ignore. If Vrabel and company can’t make the adjustments then the team will quit on them. The players know if they are being set up to fail and will start chirping about it.
