Everyone wants the next McVay but McVay is a ūü¶Ą.¬†

 

I was sceptical when when they hired him at the age of 31 (I think) but the more I learn about him the more I think this guy is a very special coach. Already one of the best..

This is a bit of a surprise given he is only 35 and very little experience. But he was OC at UC a couple years ago so there is that.

I would be looking for the next Anthony Lynn, Doug Pederson, Frank Reich

Interesting obscure fact: His father in law is former NFL coach Mike Sherman.  He gave him his 1st NFL job when he was OC of Miami in 2012.

Wow. Big jump from QB coach to HC. A lot of these hires have been boom or bust. Everyone is trying to catch lightning in a bottle.

 

Just a few years ago there was a huge premium on NFL coaching experience. Those days are gone (at least until this fad runs it's course).

I imagine the interview went something like this.

 

Mike Brown: What can you bring to the Bengals organization ?

 

Zac Taylor: I know Sean McVay

 

Mike Brown: ...........let me get my checkbook

They'll need to find a really good, experienced DC.  I don't buy that they're a dime a dozen, either.

The Taylor Bros ..... Ryan Bros 2.0 - Offense-style ???

 

Spoon fed coaching positions.  Climbing the ladder due to association.   Hmmmm.

I assume they will go with Vance Joseph who was their DB coach a few years ago. He was a good DB coach but as DC in Miami I was unimpressed.

WHO? 

 

This is getting ridiculous! 

 

Please don’t make me attend his HOF induction for posting that.

Just looking at the names of some of his family members makes me hate him.  I'm sure if one digs deep enough, they'll find a Biff, Skip and a Mitt:

 

Taylor is married to Sarah Sherman, daughter of a former Green Bay Packer head coach Mike Sherman, and they have four children: Brooks, Luke, Emma Claire, and Milly. Taylor's younger brother, Press Taylor, was a quarterback for Marshall University and is currently the quarterback coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. Taylor's father, Sherwood, was a defensive back and captain for Oklahoma and head coach Barry Switzer from 1976-1979. His sister, Kathryn, is a Special Olympics swimmer. His youngest sister Quincy resides in Oklahoma City.[12]

I'm a middle aged white guy who saw Sean McVay at an airport once if the Dolphins are looking for their next head coach.

Broncos and Bucs went old. I really think it depends on the organization and what they just went through and i think a lot of teams are going for the best fit regardless of age.

TBH I was expecting dumbass Elway to hire Zac Taylor.  More than likely an awful hire.  Goff is an average QB in the amazing McVay system, he throws to players more open than Brady does

I don't know a huge amount about Zac Taylor. But I know he is not Hue Jackson or Vance Joseph. So that is a win for the Bungles.
