f**k you Singletary!
I am a firm believer in hiring someone that can do the job at hand, and has a track record of that particular task. Larry Mac Duff comes to mind as he has had more recent experience for the ST units. He was held over by Nolan for his coaching staff - so that's gotta say something as well.
Kurt Schottenheimer seems like a guy who knows football more generally than a guy like Mac Duff. Kurt has held positions as DC, S coach, DB coach, and LB coach - and he's had a very sporadic record in those roles.
The move seems more a favor to Marty Schottenheimer than it is to hire the best person for the job.
The bright side is that if Singletary and McCloughan gets s**t canned next year, we can hire Brian Schottenheimer as our HC, Kurt as our DC, and Marty as our GM.
