There's something perhaps to be said that the guy is difficult to work with and has a hard time retaining/attracting quality DC's.He's already been a good HC...
He has a winning record with bad OC's. Imagine what he could do with a good one?
I still think Caldwell will take an OC job after all HC roles are filled. He's been out too long to go straight back into a HC role and OC is better than sitting on the couch.

Can’t agree. Most guys I know going through the ranks get to meet guys who they hope to grab if they grt a shot at the big slot. That’s why you see so many guys who previously worked together, like Arians & Bowles.Maybe. It's hard to put a staff together as a first time HC and it's likely he didn;t get much support in that regard from the Miami FO considering their plan for the future.
Tomlin got lucky in that regard in that he inhereted Arians and LeBeau when he took the Steelers job.
But for sure that is the biggest risk with Flores. But it's a risk with a lot of these coordinators interviewing for HC jobs.
I would say there is a lot of support and respect for him from coaches throughout the league for giving up his guaranteed money to take the NFL on. I would imagine a lot of guys would line up to coach with him.
What I like is the sense that Flores has his own distinct personalty and is far from being a robot.First season (2019) with the Dolphins: 5-11 with team ranking 32nd in defense
Second season (2020) with Dolphins: 10-6 with team ranking 6th in defense
Third season (2021) with Dolphins he goes 9-8 despite starting 1-7 and having a injured quarterback carasal that was Arizona Cardinal worthy, also dropped down to 16th in League defense but it's obvious he didn't "lose" the team if he finished the season 8-1
We can let Flores fix the defense while Murray rehabs, plus we wouldn't have to give up a first freakin round draft pick to get him
Gary left due to serious illness. I’m not sure he’s up to the job.Here me out...Earlier in the year, Cowherd and others thought Murray and Wilson should switch teams because the offense each was running was better suited for the other QB. Denver was a dumpster fire, but that was about 95% on Wilson. Plus if he can bring Kubiak with him to work with Kyler, that would be a bonus...he comes from good lineage.

If this is as close as you can get to an argument for Flores, we definitely shouldn't hire him.I imagine there's a Steelers forum archived somewhere where they asked "Should be make Mike Tomlin Head coach?" and 90% voted no and that they should hire Whisenhunt or Russ Grimm.
True, but if the GM talked about no ego then Flores is already out of the picture, or the GM is already full of it.Winning record is still a winning record, it means he kept his team locked in. I also don't think he had any advantages as it pertains to quarterback rosters/experience
I don't disagree...I just laugh, because BB has basically been a .500 coach without Tom. He's still GOAT, but he's been brought down to earth a bit.Winning record is still a winning record, it means he kept his team locked in.

Based upon this Flores is perhaps the anti-Kliff. His teams get better as the season progresses.

Bidwill better be hiring the person he thinks will be the best for the job and hopefully make the Cards a winning team and not to do a solid for the rest of the owners and league.the PFT article that speculated that Mike B is going to do the NFL a solid by hiring Brian Flores has me thinking
being a NFL "team player" is very on-brand for the Bidwills ---- its the primary historic source of their influence, and to defuse the Flores lawsuit by hiring him would do a solid for the other 31 owners (or at least 30 if you exclude the Dolphins).
also, politically beyond just the Flores lawsuit-- with Mike on the NFLs DEI committee, he pretty much has to hire a minority HC after hiring a white GM and passing over two minority, internal GM candidates.
not saying its the only reason for the hire -- but it really helps at the margin
