    Don't get this: Shaw wants D Minded Coach but is Interviewing O Coachs

    I'm sorry but I think Shaw is full of crap. He wants to have a defensive minded coach but is also interviewing Offensive Coordinaters the Chiefs, maybe Steelers and the Dolphins. Why in the world would you want one of those guys? I want a defensive minded coach not an offensive. What do you guys think?

    A good HC will hire a good DC/OC anyway, so I'm not sure the distinction matters. Billick was an OC before he took over in Baltimore and their offense has yet to look decent. I want a HC who can spot talent, doesn't put up with dumb mistakes, can manage a game, and who understands his management role in the organization. The rest of it is far less important.

    The Bears had wanted an OFFENSIVE guy before they decided on Lovie Smith. I do not think they regret the decision. Take the guy who's a good fit for the team.

    I want the best guy regardless of which side of the ball he comes from. Not convinced Shaw will find him though.

    Re: Don't get this: Shaw wants D Minded Coach but is Interviewing O Coachs

    Check out Tony Soprano's stats on Kubiak in the Tim Lewis thread. If it's an O coach with the pedigree of this guy then I don't think it's something to be overly concerned about.

    The problem comes when we then look for a DC to place on his staff which would entail more of a risk concerning the Defence but I think in Kubiak's case it would be one worth taking.

    I agree with chi-guy in the sense that a good HC no matter which side of the ball he comes from should be able to attend to the whole team not just one third of it.

    I think regardless of what pre-conceptions the front office might have about the kind of candidate they're looking for they have to show due dilligence by interviewing all of the best candidates, whoever they might be.

    I've no doubt they'll appoint a defensive orientated coach. Think they're just going through the motions to show they are being thorough.

    Maybe, but I think Kubiak really is worth a long hard look. As far letting MM go, I don't think it was a football decision to can him ,it was a SHAWGMUNT (TM HuB)thing.

    We just let a pretty good OC go. That's not the same thing as him being a good HC.

    It doesn't matter which side of the ball the guy comes from as long as he knows how to motivate and manage the players and staff.
