    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    @SoCalSkins smartly pointed out that regardless of the CBA restrictions, Dwayne can spend aaaaas much time as he likes with Norv Turner this offseason. Wouldn't that be interesting?

    All that's left is for the Rams to trade for Kirk. Between him, McVay and KOC the DC media will collectively climax harder than any man on earth to date.

    Anyone here know which of the Kevin O'Connell 30 for 30 and A Football Life is coming out first? Might have to head out to Canton to see his bust in person before binge-watching those bad boys.
  4. Makes you wonder about the narrative of the spawn of Bill Belichick and Vnce Lombardi, legendary Kevin O'Connell coming from the DC media...

    @SoCalSkins is a crazy dude but I think his logic is generally pretty accurate. I also expect RR to get a starting-caliber vet QB to compete. Best player wins; let's hope it's Dwayne. RR not beholden to the young guy because his job is to win games and he didn't pick any of these players. Alex Smith is a sunk cost so it doesn't matter. He could be a long-snapper - that cap hit is gone and he won't be dressed on game-day regardless so what does it matter whether he's a QB? It doesn't. And *ALSO* I'd love to see Teddy come. He's gonna wanna start and if he finds a different destination with an easier likelihood of winning the QB1 job he'll go there, but if not I think he'd be a good fit here. Also agree Dwayne needs to invest in his off-season prep to get off on the right foot with Rivera. i do think Ron LIKES Dwayne, but I don't think he's in LOVE with him or feels obligated to stick with him by any means. Dwayne's ****iness can be a great trait if it's shaped the right way and augmented by work ethic. I think Dwayne has the best intentions but needs proper guidance - and that's okay! But it doesn't entitle him to anything. Honestly, I don't want to make too much of the press conference thing, but I do think it was a missed opportunity. I don't know when Dwayne planned his vacation but knowing Gruden was gone weeks before, and that an external hire was likely to come directly after the season, he could have adjusted his schedule to make sure he was there. It's something a great leader would have done. No matter, not a huge deal and no need to drag it out - but I do hope he invests proper time in the offseason. And again, while @SoCalSkins is crazy lol, he does make a very astute point about the Norv Loophole. Dwayne can spend aaaas much time with Norv as he wants and he should.

    I do agree that the KOC love was over-blown and more media-driven hype that fans ran with than empirically proven out. That said, I could have foreseen a scenario where Ron decided to roll with the young cat without the owner forcing him. When he started hiring assistants, though, the writing was on the wall. If he actually wanted KOC, he'd have let KOC build the staff. So given what happened, I think you're also correct in that Rivera ultimately did not want KOC (even if at the outset, he was open to him).

    Holy **** @SoCalSkins was right about Rivera / KOC. My fav conspiracy theory that in a roundabout way turned out to be true.
  8. D’oh! Threads moving too fast today! I agree with you in that case - I think any reasonable person would expect “Haskins has great potential, let’s give him time to put it together” rather than “Haskins is THE guy whether he continues to improve or not”. but it would be a waste to hire a GM who doesn’t like him outright. He’s the guy till he proves he’s not and that was cemented when we picked him at 15 last year.
  9. Sorry, are you saying you want to hire a GM who doesn’t support our potential franchise QB? How does that make any sense? We talk about coaches molding scheme to existing talent all the time but for some reason that doesn’t extend to FO personnel? Sheesh!
  10. No Hard Knocks for teams with a new HC
  11. Ron gets a potential franchise QB, WR1, RB1, WR2, strong young D line ALL on their rookie contracts, cap space, control and oh yeah... the freaking #2 overall pick WITHOUT needing to take a QB. Remind me which coaching vacancy is better than this one??? **** it I’m downright optimistic about this team!

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    My ideal scenario: President: Eric Schaffer GM: Kyle Smith HC: Ron Rivera OC: Kevin O’Connell DC: Whoever Ron picks Nowhere in the building: Bruce Allen We have good talent on the roster, on the coaching staff and in the front office. I think some underestimate the addition by subtraction of firing BA, Manusky, etc.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yup, like I said I'm not making a statement any which way about credibility - just seeing the tweets and posting them straight from the source for people to make up their own minds. As for Trent, from a pure football standpoint I tend to agree with you. That said, given how much damage Bruce and Co have done to the org's reputation, repairing the relationship with Trent after such a public and sharp fallout would be a great way to signal the tides have turned under a new administration in Washington. Would do a lot to rehab our image IMO.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Sure, but both Kgskins26 and TK floated Smith's name as a "keep your eyes out" post. But Kgskins26 seems very certain that Bruce is being shown the door, and the Trent situation has a significant piece to do with it. I think that's interesting.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm not in a position to evaluate the credibility, but passing along for folks to contextualize as they see fit. Interestingly there is more certainty to this tweet than the one about Arthur Smith.
