Not to be a debbie downer but shouldn't we wait to see some results before declaring him great. 

 

Goodluck to him nonetheless.

Tomsula key piece as DL coach to make Manusky's D very good, IMO.  We have to acquire him.

Congrats to Manusky.  Let's give him some more talent and let's see what he's capable of.

I'm interested in the assistant coaches.  I am hoping when they do the official press release, they'll announce the entire staff.

You'd think they would be this has been a very long process so anything goes as far as I can see at this point.

Yep.  This is the next most important hire IMO.

Key also because Scot M. is known for drafting BPA and we need a lot of help on D.  He'd better get BDPA (best defensive player available) in my opinion in both FA and draft

I think the biggest piece is what kind of talent upgrade we do through free agency and draft. It seems current players really do like him so hopefully he can at least motivate and instill discipline in the locker room.

Hopefully soon we hear the rest of the assistant coaches and this isn't just some "Eh, hire to have someone until next season" type of hire.

So clearly the plan was go all in on Gus and if he said no, go to option B.  

 

Petine, Manusky etc were all option B.  

 

Clearly the others didn't blow Jay away with interview process.  

 

I actually think this might work, assuming we get good position coaches.

At last an announcement. Probably ended up being the best option available to us. It's an upgrade an Barry and that's a good start.

 

Need more talent now. Hopefully the protracted search has been another reminder as to how little talent we have on D.

I just hope he puts players in positions to succeed and gives young players a chance early instead of waiting until the vets playing poorly in front of them cost our team wins.  That was Barry's biggest failing IMO.  Let's hope the vets on the team aren't breathing sighs of relief this morning.

It will be interesting to see if Scot give him the pieces he needs.

I'm pretty sure that he will. All evidence points to us going heavily on the defensive side of the ball in FA, and we'll see how the draft goes.

He had little talent in Indy.  But still he's DVOA defensive ratings were decent:  19th, 16th, 13th, 13th.    I met him once where he interacted with my kids -- came off like a zany dude in a good way.  He's a disciple of Wade Phillips according to his pal John Pagano

Hiring Manusky over Pettine makes no sense to me.  Manusky's track record is not impressive by any means.  Pettine had some good numbers with his defenses, and is only available for failing to turn the Browns around as a HC (no easy task).  Manusky is available because 2 different franchises fired him for poor performance, and he was on the staff for our poor defense last year.  But hey, at least our GM has already worked with him.  God forbid we bring in someone from the outside for a fresh perspective (never mind the better track record).

 

GMSM, Gruden, and Allen again choose to go with familiarity over more reputable outsiders, and if the Skins show no improvement next season after adding some key pieces on defense (which I am assuming they will), it will be hard to make a case for keeping anybody on the coaching staff moving forward.  And GMSM will have to be held accountable as well.

I consider this a solid hire, but not an exciting or inspiring one. He was able to get good production out of Indi despite poor talent and had okay results elsewhere. 

 

I think the thing I like best is his connection to the glory years. This is our second coach with a Gibbs connection (and I'm not totally sure McCardell counted.)

 

Go get 'em, Greg! Prove the doubters idiots.
