Who would you like as WR Coach

Recommended Posts

Would you prefer a veteran coach that never played the position or a former Wideout ?

 

Are there any strong candidates?

James Lofton, obviously.  His 10 years away from coaching have probably left him very well rested.

I wouldn’t mind an up and comer who is an assistant WR coach somewhere. Overall I don’t care as long as they get the right guy. They have had like 8 WR coaches in 9 years. That’s insanity

Up and comer seems to be a developing theme for McBeane coaching hires.  I think McDermott has decided he likes an active, hands on approach that younger position coaches are better equipped to do.  I'm OK with that too.

I like the approach but it can be pretty hard either they're bad and have to find someone new or they're average and your trying to have young up and comers you shouldn't keep them or they're good and they get a promotion somewhere else. Could be a lot of turn over.

I know it's the dreaded Panthers connection, but My first target would be Ricky Proehl. Not sure he would want to leave his business endeavors to do it. 

 

Another guy I think would be interesting is Wes Welker. He was a great route runner and is well versed in the offensive system. He just spent a year on the Texans staff as an offensive assistant. He's young, but makes a lot of sense. 

 

Shawn Jefferson formerly of the Dolphins is another interesting, youngish former NFL player. He's credited with a lot of Jarvis Landry's development. 

 

Jerricho Cotchery is an assistant receiver coach for the Panthers. Another youngish coach who had a successful NFL career despite having little talent. He succeeded by running good routes and catching the ball. He also played for Beane and McDermott, and Brian Daboll when he coached on the Jets staff. 

 

I like the the idea of guys who were former NFL players who had successful careers, despite not being supremely talented. They are typically good at teaching the positional nuances needs to be successful.

Eric Moulds, one of my all time favorite Bills players. Not sure how he'd be as a coach but It would be pretty cool seeing him back wearing the colors.

We definitely need someone that can teach a WR how to catch a very fast, powerful ball.

As the Bills' WR coach?  That's easy.....Bill Belichick.

I have two theories on this and why it hasn't been named.  First thought is they are tying down the offensive coaching ranks by eliminating extra personnel and Daboll himself or maybe Culley will coach the receivers or second the coach they want is still coaching in the playoffs.

Antonio Brown.

He should be available soon. 😂 JK..

 

I always thought Steve Smith would be a good WR coach. He was always one to get your attention. Polished route runner, great hands and attitude to boot. Plus let's not forget the all important Carolina connection.

That rules out any WR's from the Fitz/Edwards era ;)

I like the idea of a guy who has a track record of turning lemons into lemonade.  Someone who has molded and improved a receiving corps.

So, who caught a ton of passes from Favre? Sterling Sharpe? Donald Driver?

Is he also credited with Landry's dirty play?
