But EB is a name that everyone knows. So he must be a savior.
Better to have the up and comer, when you’re a new coach, than a jilted lover, IMO.
I like the 3 year contracts as opposed to 5 yearAlbert Breer
The Cardinals are finalizing a three-year deal to make Browns QBs coach Drew Petzing their offensive coordinator, per sources. He joins new DC Nick Rallis, who's coming from Philly with Jonathan Gannon. Both guys topped Gannon's wishlist. Young staff makeup = Similar to Philly.
Petzing as OC came out a week and a half ago before Gannon was hired. He had a plan and sold it to get the HC job.Asking from someone who doesn’t know the rules. Can the OC and DC give out their play books, etc. now, so the players can start familiarizing and learning their systems, verbiage, etc? Or do they have to wait for the off season schedules such as OTA’s etc?
I am really liking the hires so far. Might just be hopium but it seems like each of them so far have something about them and not just names. Will be interesting to see positional coaches next along with hopefully a wise old defensive & offensive consultant sprinkled in
Petzing came up as name with Gannon during Super Bowl week.Don’t know much about either the new OC/DC, but I’m encouraged by the fact that both of these names came up almost immediately after Gannon was hired. It appears that Gannon did his homework, knew who he wanted, and got them. Time will,tell how successful any of them will be, but the early impression of Gannon is that he has a plan. That’s a refreshing change from the previous regime.
EB did call plays. Zac Taylor didnt. LaFluer didn’t. joe judge didn’tThe argument for EB was his experience with Andy Reid, an amazing offense, Mahomes, etc.
The argument against EB was he didn't call the plays.
Pelzig has never called plays at any level.
EB is gone and most likely Gannon didn't want him anyway. That is fine but the crowd who criticized EB's experience now has Pelzig. Let's hope it works out.
I don't get this OC hire. DC hire is OK I assume as Gannon is the top guy who will install defense.First off things are as we asked for.
Mike hired Monti
Monti hired Gannon
Gannon hired his coordinators
Regarding Petzing, I don't know if he will be good or not. My concern is does he have a playbook that's not just the Brown's? I assume he must?
Its a big task for him. New team, new scheme, new verbiage for everyone, difficult QB etc. A lot to handle. He'll need a good staff.
Brissett was drafted by the Patriots, so MO is familiar with him too. I do expect that Jacoby will fill in for Murray next year. He’s 6’4 & 240. Hell, he can fill in at LB once Murray returns lol. His TD/INT ratio is 48-23.Brissett had one of the best years of his career last year.
