I'm actually 50/50...I can see good and not so good in both candidates. I'll support either choice and give them a full chance. I'll give an even longer leash if VaJ isn't with either of them.
I am not too hip on Kafka, but I too will support the hire and give him a chance if he is hired... I want to leave that hanging Dinglberry behind and feel comfortable about our coaching

A Kafka hire seems like more of the same. A young offensive minded HC with very little experience or connections in the league. Maybe the Cardinals can hire an experienced DC with HC experience to mentor Kafka? Or maybe they already have...

Kafka, I think, has way more experience in the NFL, both as player and coach, than Kliff did. If he needs an assistant to help with more experience, I'd rather it be on the offensive side of the ball, this time, and just hire an up and coming DC who can bring the heat and stay out of everyone's way.

Man… the fact that we’re kinda clamoring over a guy who “fixed” Danny Dimes to this level of mediocrity speaks to how desperate the situation is with Kyler. And I’m leaning that way too so it’s not a slam, but Kafka ain’t sone kind of miracle worker.

But who was the Giant's #1 WR? Richie James? Isaiah Hogan's? Darius Slayton?

Barkley was tied for 1st in receptions!

The local guys had someone who knows Kafka well on the air the other day and he said he was shocked that he was even being considered for any head coaching positions. Said he has done a good job in the short time he has been in New York but questioned his presence in a locker room as a head coach. Said he did not feel he was a "leader of men."

So he is probably our guy.

Jesus, if true.

Did Kafka get a lot of interviews besides us?

His prior seasons are why this is such a leap of improvement.

Just the Panthers
Colts too


And Texans


And Broncos were interested too


So, only every team that had an opening. Guess he isn't liked much.

Every team with an opening showed interest. Broncos were the only ones to not have an official interview. They did their requirement of a minority interview and then set their sites on Payton.

Kafka got:

2 Interviews in AZ
2 Interviews in Houston (Only candidate outside of Ryans to get 2 interviews)
1 Interview in Carolina
1 Interview in Indianapolis


He's actually one of the few to get 2 interviews with multiple teams.
