It really wouldn't have mattered who we had drafted or signed.
We had Dennis Erickson, replaced him with Mike Nolan, and replaced him with Mike Singletary. There is our problem. We haven't had a legit NFL Head Coach on this team in the past decade.
True. But you aren't taking it far enough... Who hires all of those?....
Well......nothing I can do about that one. Until Jed decides that he needs to hire a President of Football Operations and give him full control of the football side of the organization. A Bill Parcels or Mike Holmgren are the obvious examples of this. Find a football guy who knows what you need in a coach.....and won't be wowed by a guy with a bunch of fancy pie charts or a motivational speech.
The interview should be having the candidate go over the Xs and Os, have him break down film right there. See if he can come up with a gameplan.
