I still think that bridge is burned, unfortunately. I would absolutely love that too though...but I just can't see that happening this century. He would be a better potential Belichick replacement than McDaniels though. I don't want him anywhere near our personnel decisions, except maybe with wide receivers.
Also, on the subject of impossible ideas;
1. Find a time machine
2. Sign 2007 Randy Moss.
3. **** **** up.
I'm posting this here since I don't want to be murdered by fans who picked in the top ten under McDaniel's watch(I wouldn't like the guy either if that were to happen)....but I really feel like most of his failings in other places had to do with bad personnel decisions and just a general lack of grounding. With the personnel we have on offense(and hopefully the additions we make to sure up the wide receivers) and Tom Brady, I think we'll be able to maintain the pace on offense into next year and perhaps even get better. Just a really, really solid hire for us and it should help both parties involved.
I think the tight end factor is getting overblown a little bit. Gronkosaurus is the best tight end in the NFL(and coming off the best season a tight end has ever had), and we didn't have anyone even close to his ability threshold with us when McDaniel's made his first tour of duty. Ben Watson should have been better than he was, but I'll always remember him for proving that 4.4 speed at tight end doesn't make you Vernon Davis. Watson was actually fairly productive in 2006 as well, catching quite a few balls. Hernandez working underneath and in the middle after the catch seems to play well into his/our system as well.
Yea, I couldn't agree more. This is going to be a slugfest.
It sucks that the Pats are doing their part. Being humble, saying only positive things about the Ravens
and then Skip comes in and ***** it all up for us. They don't need material for Harbaugh to post on their locker room to hype them up.
