    Hire Josh McDaniels.

    Then, once he's hired a full staff, fire him.

    Ok, I’ve about had my fill with Vrabel and Art Smith. We need a real qualified coaching staff.

    I think talent wise we’re pretty good. It’s coaching and scheme. Look at the Rams after they fired Fisher and hired McVay. Went from a 4 win team to a SB appearance. With Jeff Geoff no less!

    And hire a long time backup QB. I mean pederson, Reich, maybe a bubby brister or Rodney Peete is the next guy?

    I think if jrob doesnt consider it, it maybe time for him to get his walking papers too. Drafting a QB is not going to fix this team or make art or vrabel any better

    Yeah, we need a few other pieces too but I definitely think coaching is our biggest issue now. We have the talent to compete and on paper our offense should at least be average or better.

    Vrabel and Robinson's seats should be very warm at this point

    So I've made statements that range from wanting a primarily pocket passer in the draft to just signing FA QBs, instead.

    Well, flipping through the radio the other day, I stopped at Fox Radio briefly and heard Colin Cowherd before I was about to flip again. But he said something that caught my attention... Athletic/dual-threat QBs aren't a fad. They're the future.

    I vehemently disagreed... until I heard his reasoning. Then I agree with him, but for an almost entirely different reason.

    Athletic QBs are becoming what the NCAA is "giving" the NFL. So, the "best" QBs out of college will, most likely, not be pro-style.

    There's more to this, though... has anyone else seemed to notice or question the decline of the average Olineman? Finding quality blockers seems to be getting tougher and tougher.

    An athletic, mobile, QB doesn't truly require a good Oline in college. And if there is a quality Olineman going into college, they may not even be coached up as much due to 2 things: 1 a program that is based on a more mobile QB 2 college programs getting by on their players just being more athletic or stronger than the others. Don't need to coach that... just need to get your school the wins!

    I would argue - as I have a lot - that the quality of player coming out of college is far less refined/good.

    So, a mobile/dual-threat QB is the future... because the NFL will have limited choice in the matter.

    NCAA is not a farm league.

    NFL scouts should continue to do their job and not take just what is “given”. They are expected to shop around, do their homework, and pick the best out of the bunch.
    To me, the reason why teams settle for running QBs, is due to the college success, it gets some immediate fans in the stands as teams take some time to adjust.
    Second, historically, most pocket passers take time to develop. Look what NFL teams do to their rookie QBs. They chuck them in the fire and if they don’t remotely swim, it’s on to the next best thing that can even remotely swim.

    Some of the best passers in the league were far from world beaters when they entered the league and in one case, the benefit of sitting a couple years probably did wonders (Rodgers).

    So I agree that’s what the NCAA is giving, and I agree that’s what the NFL is settling for but for the NFL, I disagree that is the best route to go. Running QBs should NOT be the future of the NFL unless we are just determined to continue lowering the bar for QB play even in a pass happy league designed to score points.
    Lamar Jackson is far from the best QB in the league. Not denying his MVP quality season, but a career of only 3K passing will not be very long. The 28 TDs he’s thrown won’t last either with those kind of passing numbers.
