    If Bobby goes to Seattle that would be three Shanahan branches in the NFCW…and the Raiders (lol).

    They will keep the same offense and either Klint Kubiak or Jerrod Johnson will be the next OC. If Johnson isn't the next OC he will probably end up as OC wherever Slowik ends up.

    Bobby Slowik should do the same DeMeco did. Take another as a coordinator and learn more. Year 2 will be better for him because he will get better job offers.

    Sounds like he's being interviewed for quite a few jobs. My concern is this is taking time/focus away from this weeks game against the Ravens. You don't just go into an interview and wing it. If he wants to make an impression he has to do his due diligence on the specific team he's interviewing with and what he would do to improve things and this takes a lot of time. Especially when he's interviewing with multiple teams.

    Don't think Slowik has accepted any interviews yet. He's one of the few who hasn't.

    Maybe. But this is, I think, a unique offseason. Usually, bad teams that need a HC lack a good QB and/or roster talent. But LA has Herbert, a top 5(ish) QB; the Bears and Commanders can pick two of the more highly-rated rookie QBs of the past several years. And teams like Atlanta and Seattle are stacked everywhere but at QB, when players like Fields and/or Cousins could be available. (In Seattle, you might be able to work with Geno Smith, who is at least among the top-half of QBs) And if the Eagles job becomes available - that's another high-end QB with a really good roster.

    Most years, your *best* coaching opportunities look a lot like Carolina or New England or even Tennessee.

    At this point I'm just hoping that Slowik is really bad at interviews. Or that he himself doesn't feel like he's quite ready to be a head coach (similar the Lions OC last season).

    John McClain said both Demeco and Bobby are represented by Jimmy Sexton and that Sexton is not a highest bidder type of agent but more of a wants his coaching clients to be happy and successful type of agent…And get paid.

    I think these are the exact 2 most likely scenarios

    I think Seattle and LA are very good fits for Slowik. If he doesn't get offers from those two, MAYBE he waits it out 1 more year for a better situation.

    Very unlikely

    Slowik is a genius level person and those type people usually interview well.

    Slowik didn't look too hot when Stroud wasn't playing or when he was injured, and sometimes he didn't look too hot while Stroud was 100% healthy (Panthers game)

    He had a good game plan against Cleveland but let's see how he does against Baltimore. If he leaves I think the Texans will be just fine tbh.

    Well the fact that they have the most patient owners in the league make it a top job.

    Slowik has one year as a top coordinator, any team that makes him a HC is taking a huge risk.

    His in game play sequencing was garbage for most of the year, but he's done an amazing job overall for a rookie OC.
