Fangio actually spent his consulting time helping the Eagles out with their offense. He was self scouting the offense, I'm guessing to fix any tendencies that could be exploited, and breaking down the Chief's defense.Hopeful because honestly, that's all I can do. This past season and offseason has been a throw my arms up in disgust feeling. As a fan, my choice is to be hopeful, root for another team and give up watching football all together. I'm sure there are more choices but that's just how I feel!
Does give me caution that they had to hire Fangio as a consultant for the super bowl. I'm also hopeful that that act alone created some uncertainty during half time which could be one of the reasons KC ran all over them. What would have happened if they just let Gannon's defense play out instead of bringing in outside help?
Must have been a reason (the interview, opinions of others) why he was selected to be a DC and a HC. As a young man, relatively speaking, he must have done SOMETHING to become a HC. And if your answer was he was GIVEN a lot of VG players then I would say, well he didn't screw it up.I dont know why anyone would be excited about this. It doesnt mean he wont be good but what evidence is there that he is? He had a good defense for a year full of great players? Thats far from being enough of what it takes to be a good head coach so ill be dissapointed and hope he proves me wrong.
It's tough to get too excited about a guy I knew very little about until a week ago.
Also, my preference was an experienced HC with an offensive background. Gannon is the opposite. My hope is that he is a true culture changer, but my fear is that he is another Staley or McDaniels. So it's a meh for me right now, while doing my best to keep an open mind.
Don’t worry about that. The Bears might stick and take one, though I totally discount that idea. The Texas guys will definitely take a QB. Settling for a vet, like Carr, mskes no sense. They need that rookie QB contract so they free enough cap space to attack their many needs.
What up Cards fans?!? Love this board and discussion. Some of y’all may have seen some of my posts in Suns threads.
I’m a Bengals fan but as someone who watches a lot of Philly, I’m meh on this hire. Ignore the SB for a second, the Eagles had a ridiculously easy schedule this year.
The games they lost in the regular season, they struggled to stop the run (Washington/New Orleans) or giving up big plays (Dallas). Gannon’s scheme relies on the front 4 getting home but Philly was mediocre against the run (24th YPC).
They just got up on teams that if you couldn’t stay close to Philly, you couldn’t run the ball. In the SB, the Chiefs won the line of scrimmage and averaged 6 yards a carry and Mahomes had one incompletion after the half.
Now I hope he does well. I really do. I really enjoy the message board Red Sea nation. But, you just saw his lack of ability to make in-game adjustments. I hope he learns from the SB and can right the ship for AZ.
Honestly, it depends on who he hires as a coordinator but with him being focused on the defensive side of the ball, I’m sure he’s going to have a say in the overall strategy/tactics/adjustments that the DC has. He might even want to call plays, who knows how he’ll delegate.Going to be up to his DC to make adjustments? Correct? Gannon is now the CEO of the team.
