    We'll see Bieniemy and McDaniels at the top of the list but personally I think you make Dabo and Riley say no first. Daboll is doing a pretty stellar job with Josh Allen in Buffalo and Saleh is a really interesting name with some Texans ties but I would expect them to go with an offensive minded coach.

    Coordinator Candidates:
    Eric Bieniemy - Chiefs OC
    Greg Roman - Ravens OC
    Arthur Smith - Titans OC
    Brian Daboll - Bills OC
    Robert Saleh - 49ers DC

    Retreads:
    Josh McDaniels - Patriots OC
    Jason Garrett - Giants OC

    College:
    Dabo Swinney - Clemson
    Lincoln Riley - Oklahoma
    Jim Harbaugh - Michigan

    GM:
    For GM, I'm looking at guys in the Seahawks, 49ers, Ravens and Chiefs front office.

    Who y'all like? Any names missing?

    Agree with this. I wanted Bienemy last year. In hindsight, it was the wrong year (covid). He should be 1A and I guess Dabo would be 1B.

    I'm not sure how Dabo would do, to be honest.


    Don't let there be an option 2.

    Falcons probably gonna fire Dan Quinn tomorrow.


    Not advocating for him at all though.


    Going to be interesting to see all the coaches fired throughout the season. Hope Texans don’t make a decision too quick.

    Not sure if there is a bet line yet but assume McDaniels will be the odds favorite due to the Easterby factor.

    Bring back Rick Smith as team president and hire John Dorsey as G.M.

    I worry about Dabo because he doesn't necessarily strike me as an innovator of offense, just more a great recruiter and leader of men. Because of that, I think he's a better college coach than nfl coach.


    Honestly, I'm hesitant and would almost put Riley at 1B. So, I guess I'd put Riley at 2. I think there's a great case to be made that Riley would be a better NFL coach than Dabo.

    Either way, I think Bienemy is 1. I guess Riley 2A. And Dabo 2B. I don't think you get to a 3.

    Hearing way too much buzz for Bienemy.

    How much of their system is due to Mahomes/Andy Reid vs. Bienemy would be my question.

    Are we all just assuming that Easterby is now the GM? I don't see why.

    Why would people want Bienemy? That's Reid's offense and Bienemy has never called a play in his life.
