  • Assistants Who Should Be Head Coaches

    The place is moving real slow, and Im finally getting some more free time to post more often, so I figured Id start up something to get our minds off the other "story" surrounding the NFL these days. Who do you think is an assistant in the NFL right now that is worthy of getting a HC job? Here is my list


    Rob Ryan: Oakland Raiders Defensive Coordinator

    To me, what he's done is more impressive than his brother Rex. They run similar schemes, and I love both of them, but Rob got near equal production out of a group that was on the field alot more than the Ravens defense, had major negativity surrounding the clubhouse, and out of players with less talent than the Ravens. Don't get me wrong, he has talent, and lots of it, but its still impressive what he did with this unit.

    And he has an impressive resume. He was a linebackers coach in NE under Bellichick, and he's son of Buddy Ryan (so is Rex of course). He has experience in the 4-3 and 3-4, and he seems like he can garner respect from his players since he was able to make the Raiders focus under such adverse conditions and actually had the whole team pulling for him to be the new HC in the offseason.

    He's my personal first choice as a Tom Coughlin replacement for the Giants if we decide to get an upcoming assistant coach as our new HC. (yes, im already thinking of Coughlin replacements).


    Norm Chow: Tennesee Titans Offensive Coordinator

    Im surprised that a man like Chow doesn't even get mentioned as a possible HC. His resume is very impressive. He's helped mold Matt Leinart, Vince Young, and Phillip Rivers. He's not pass happy, and his offenses generally have a good balance to it. He knows how to develop young quarterbacks and adjust to his players strengths. His resume basically speaks for itself. He would also be the first Asian American HC if he ever becomes one, which I think would be pretty cool. I don't care if he's purple, the man is a brilliant mind and deserves a shot at HC. Hopefully his chance comes soon. If youre a team with a young developing quarterback, this is the guy to get. He'll develop him properly.

    Ron Rivera: San Diego's Linebackers Coach

    I personally blame Ron Rivera for the Bear's losing the superbowl. I really do. I felt that the weather was a gift from the football gods and he didnt take advantage of it. When it was pouring the way it was, why wasn't he aggressive? Why didn't he blitz Peyton? Instead he essentially had his guys play prevent the whole game, and made Peyton's life easy by allowing him to check down all game. The deepball wasn't there, the weather wouldn't allow it. There was no need to put so much emphasis on defending it. To me, the Bears couldve won that Superbowl if Rivera didn't call a horrible game.


    However, (even though i just ripped him), this is the man to get if you want to run a Tampa 2 defense. He's a military man, he garners respect from his guys, good motivator, and he's one of the better Cover 2 minds out there. If youre going Cover 2, Ron Rivera is your man.


    Possible other guys that I need to pay more attention to: Mike Zimmer (anyone under Parcells tree seems golden almost), Mike Singletary (gotta see him take a more proactive role in Xs and Os first)


    Im sure there are a couple of names I left out. I want to hear who you think is worthy and why. Let's talk about something else for a change.

          I don't think he wants to be a HC. If he did, he wouldve taken a job by now. And we got Spags anyway, which is pretty much the same thing, just younger.

          I like the idea of Rob as HC, and keep Spags at DC, since they have similar idealogies on defense. Or bring Pepper Johnson in as DC, since he also worked under Bellichick and was a protege of Ryans. Then we can bring in an offensive mind who will preach ball control and smashmouth offense, which will make Eli's life a lot easier.

            I want him as a DC, im not ready to consider him as a HC yet. I like the idea of having him as a DC though. Former Giant, played for Parcells, coached under Bellichick, has coached the Patriot Dline and LB core, and has done a stellar job with both. I like him alot as a DC.

              Unfortunately for me and my Niners....

              Mike Singletary, Assistant HC/LB coach


              He doesn't have a huge amount of coaching experieance, but he just oozes leadership. I remember a clip from when he and Nolan were in Baltimore and Nolan asked Singletary to chew out Ray Lewis because Singletary is a guy even Lewis would bow down to.

              I hope we can hold on to him for another year or two...

                I think Russ Grimm has the ability to be a head coach in this league. I like the Pittsburgh toughness that him and Whisenhut are bringing to Arizona and with a successful year there I think Grimm could be the big man on an NFL team in '08.

                  Both of the Falcons coordinators have legit shots. Zimmer due to the Parcell's link and relative success; Hue Jackson because of his work in Cincinattii and if he works a miracle with our WRs he can do it anywhere.

                    Russ Grimm would be great i want him to be the redskins next coach so bad that would be so cool

                    also greg williams and Al Saunders are pretty good "Assistants"

                      Yeah, but both, or at least Williams sucked as a HC. Saunders is just an offensive genius, lets just leave him at that.

                      Hopefully we can get Grimm to come back home when Gibbs retires. Personally, I'd flip out.

                          I would too, or if we could some how have both of them here at the same time.

                            Mike Trgovac gets no love for having a top ranked defense in 03, 05 and 06.

                              If we're doing "should be" head coaches, then Tom Moore and Monte Kiffin head the list, but neither wants a head coaching spot.


                              The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                              If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.
