  1. I think player to coach ratio is a faulty way to look at it. Coaches aren't direct player management in the sense that teams just take somebody who's a player and make them a coach like how other professions work sometimes. Also, about two-thirds of the coaches haven't played in NFL down (18 as of last January) and the coaching ranks tend to be more for people who don't make it as players. https://www.google.com/amp/s/theundefeated.com/features/which-top-minority-coaching-candidates-would-be-good-fits-for-nfl-job-openings/amp/ There's a little relevant reading on minority candidates according to the undefeated. For those looking for names, George Edwards Jim Caldwell Leslie Frazier Eric Bieniemy Ron Rivera Looking at the hiring patterns this year and teams not waiting for playoff eliminations, Beiniemy, Edwards and a few of the mentions from SF in the article aren't going to get looks from anyone except Cleveland because their teams are still playing. The minority guys I'd consider as an armchair GM are probably Rivera, Marvin Lewis and Caldwell. Rivera got a job and Marvin Lewis got consideration from Dallas, a team that decide to go with an experienced coach. I also think the head coach candidate market in general wasn't very good this offseason which is why you saw teams like Jacksonville and Detroit basically decide to keep their guys for another year.
  2. Allen is definitely better as a prospect than EJ or Losman were, but I agree that in a year we are definitely going to know what we have at the position and that it's sufficient time to bring in competition if we don't see league average passing efficiency or better. We play in an era where players that make bad decisions or have a gunslinger mentality don't succeed because passing efficiency is king. To make it clear, Josh should be the starter next year and I will think he will get there, but NFL development has a shelf life because that's how rookie scale contracts work. I think the key to developing Allen as a passer is to find something he can do consistently as a passer and do it a lot. I don't know what that is yet. Just looking statistically, Josh has 9 games below the eating average and 8 games above it in 17 starts this year and the offense varies wildly like his play does.
  3. I don't disagree, but at some point Allen has to drop back and win and today he couldn't. McDermott's criticism is fair.
  4. That's not to say Allen can't improve, but it's hard to have a consistent offense when the quarterback is still inconsistent and erratic as Josh has been this year and this game against a bad pass defense.
  5. Buffalo's only touchdown came on a drive where the team did everything they could to make sure Allen didn't have to throw a pass. That isn't a good sign.
  6. The clear answer is not yet. Allen was rattled in the 2nd half and failed to make a play during critical times in the game. Houston won because Watson was able to make a really great play in overtime.
  7. I think tomlin's tenure has become a little more impressive considering what Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell ended up actually becoming when they left that team.
  8. So technically Oakland is still in next week provided they win today lol.
  9. The issues in Jacksonville are with roster construction moreso than they are with how the team is actually coaches. Here and in Jacksonville he was able to vastly improve team defenses but having EJ here and Bortles and then a team pay 80 Million for a career backup in Foles ultimately held him back.
  10. The PI call was a bad call. Hayward was playing the ball and had outside position.
  11. Kicking that is the correct call for the Chargers.
