I get that. But on the other hand the personnel today and going into this season is/was below average. And when you don’t have the horses to get to the Qb you are forced to come up with assinine blitz packages. Also weren’t we down to our 3rd and 4th cb’s starting?
I’m not endorsing VJ to stay and certainly not as our head coach. I’m simply trying to analyze how this organization might look at things.
All that being said I doubt very much if Payton is hired he’d be talked into keeping VJ as his DC. I would not be surprised if VJ is retained in another capacity IF he would accept that.
Pretty sure Payton would secure a position for Fangio in his discussions.
But if VJ stays on i aint real concerned. The dynamic will be totally different.
VJ was hired as DC because we wanted a guy with HC experience to help kk adjust to the nfl... due to that, imo, there was basically zero oversight on the defense. Kliff ran the offense and let Vance run the defense.
That wont be the case with Sean Payton as HC... if he doesnt like what Vance is running, it will change.
That being said. Mike seems to like VJ so even if we hire Fangio i could see Vance staying on as a defensive assistant, just to keep him active until the next round of coaching hires next january.
