Actually, I just wanted to talk specifically about some of the coaching changes (although feel free to comment on the playoffs). I’ve really distanced myself from the sport, but I have been curious about the coaching moves. Here are some thoughts:
- I really liked Vrabel, and would have been happy if he went to the Raiders, or even the Seahawks.
- I’m disappointed Mark Davis is sticking with Antonio Pierce, especially with Vrabel, Belichick, and Jim Harbaugh as possible options, although maybe they wouldn’t take the job.
- I would have been happier with Pierce if he were able to get Arthur Smith as OC.
- I don’t have strong feelings about the Hawks hiring Mike Macdonald. He didn’t really stand out to me, but I also didn’t watch all the games this past season. In general, I prefer hiring an offensive-minded HC, though. Hopefully, he’s the type of defensive coach that can really elevate a defense with his schemes and play calling.
