They turn that franchise around and Arian retires, Bowles is a head coach again.
I am a big fan of Todd, and I wish it would have worked out. But I don't blame him one bit. He kept his word to the guy that put his name on the map.

Exactly. Sucks for us, but it isn't like the cupboard is bare and the position wouldn't be a springboard for a recently fired or displaced DC candidate. But need to look at who might be the next man up if the DC we hire gets an offer next offseason, which makes it tougher.

Vic Fangio said he asked George McCaskey "Can I do the press conference tomorrow in my gray sweats?" McCaskey said no, gave him the tie he's wearing now.

I tried to watch part of an interview that he did with the Jeff Joniak counterpart in Denver.

Oh, Vic. You are SO, SO awkward. I love the guy. He was a phenomenal DC in Chicago, SF, etc. He just doesn't seem to have the personality, savvy, or salesmanship to be a head coach. As a head coach, you have to sell your players on what you're doing, and why. Vic is a mad scientist type, with beakers and bunsen burners, cooking up evil defensive schemes. He's not a head coach. *SIGH*.

I'm still happy for him. I just don't see this going very well.

Oh it’s gonna be an epic dumpster fire. But still, he chased his dream and you can’t be mad at that.

Yes, very happy for him. I hope I'm wrong.

Agreed. I think it's a mistake on his part, but there are only 32 of those jobs so I can't criticize going after one of them.

I fear he'll bomb out; he's organized and experienced, but so much of the job includes skills he hasn't shown he possesses. And I sincerely hope, for his sake, that I'm wrong about that.

He's a head coach by title only in Denver. Who knows? Maybe that's the type of situation he wants.

And the shit show has started. Kubiak backs out of being the OC.

Am I the only one seeing a potential Jim Tomsula situation in Denver?

Don’t get me wrong — I really like Fangio and think he’s a bright guy but I just wonder about his ability to be savvy beyond the X’s and O’s of the job. So much politics and other overhead come with being a HC — especially in today’s world of Social Media and hot-takes. I hope he’s ready.
