I don't know why the NFL keeps raiding their coaching staff. It's not like they've been successful.
Bill O'Brien you could say was average or maybe even slightly above average if you want to be kind. But then he turned around and made the worst decisions BB has made as a GM look like epic wins compared to what BOB did.
I think Flores could have been really good if not for the ownership in Miami so that's a shame.
If you want to count Daboll as BB's I think he's going to be good. The thing about Daboll is he took learnings from multiple systems and is his own man. He's not trying to be a clone like some of the others.
Really everyone else has been awful. Patricia, Judge, Mangini, Crennel.......the Raiders better rattle off some wins of JM might be done for good.
Interestingly former players to this point have been really good. Vrabel and O'Connell.
Everyone keeps trying to distill the problems with this team down to a single problem. It's just flawed almost everywhere.
How many plus players are on this roster right now? I'd say 5. Andrews, Stevenson, Judon, Jack Jones and Marcus Jones. I'm sorry for those of you who have Harris, Dugger, Mac and others as binkies but pickout the 16th (32nd for double position slots) best player at their position and tell me they're better than that. If you want to include Folk I'm not going to agrue but he's also not a real difference maker. All things considered I think he's an average dependable kicker which is fine.
Now ask yourself who even has the potential to be a plus player. I would only add Barmore (who if healthy and was continuing to improve I'd include), if he had a dependable line and weapons maybe Mac, Dugger if he could clean up some of the mental mistakes. I'm sure some people will Uche and Wise. They're not the problem but they're not plus players either.
That's all without getting into the coaching staff or all the mental mistakes this team makes which speaks to both the lack of talent and the poor staff.
Fix the OL so you can give MJ a chance and find out if he really is the solution.
If BOB is done at Bama bring him back and get rid of Beavis and Butthead.
Fix the receiver position. I was calling for Marcus Jones to get some offensive snaps before it happened to a couple of friends every week. When he went out to the huddle I spotted it and texted them here comes the bubble screen to Marcus Jones. More of that this year and going forward please. That kid has the short area burst nobody else on this team has.
LB upgrades. They aren't awful but there are no consistent difference makers
Interior DL upgrades. Ditto to the LBs. They're not a bad rotation but there's nobody who takes over the line of scrimmage.
On the positive side the draft has been much better the last three years. They need another solid one. They also have 53-ish million in cap space. I hope they spend it better than Agholor, Jonnu and Henry. That's awful value for what they paid.
