We sit down and react to the hiring of our new OC, and speculate on what may be coming.
Only way NFL owners will ever get a handle on out of control QB salaries is to let marquee guys who want insane money walk, and then refuse to sign them for insane money once they have been released. Most teams seem to prefer to pay idiotic $$ (Cleveland the latest poster child) even if it upsets the Apple cart for the rest of the NFL. Something is eventually going to have to give as where it is heading is unsustainable.
I think Burrow may set the tone, he states he wants to be in Cincy, loves it, is he willing to take 35 mil a year? On a 3 year deal and play ball again and in 3 years? When he knows they gotta pay Chase to? You said it best "is winning the most important factor?" Let the players also show it, hell Cousins fleeced two freaking teams.I think it's going to take a team or two deciding to shift their focus away from investing in the QB and rolling with QBs on the rookie deal. It's no secret that the most valuable asset in the NFL is a star QB on rookie money... 2 or 3 teams decide they're gonna make that a focal point instead of a welcomed byproduct... we could see it.
I think players overall think it’s a good thing. Players who want to move into the coaching career after football see a path to success. They see a guy who has been where they are and is now successful in the coaching field. But ultimately, I do believe it comes down to winning. If the coach knows what he is doing and is successful. If he treats them with respect, even when he’s chewing them out. If he commands the locker room and has the respect of the players. That is what will be what the players want most. Because it does come down to the players want to be successful and if a coach can make them successful, they will like him. If he can’t, they will want another coach regardless of their race, religion, politics, etc. I could be wrong and I’m not trying to speak for anyone. But I know that players are competitive and want to succeed and want a coach that helps them succeed.I get it, I really do. Part of the reason I probably brought it up is because it seems like nowadays we are ‘only allowed’ to talk about some topics. People are afraid to ask even obvious questions about race, sexuality, etc… so probably a little passive-aggressive push back on my part because I think we should be able to talk about most things.
Anyway, my guess (but yeah, I’m not qualified to have an educated opinion) is that the players think it’s pretty cool and a good thing.
Sounds like it. From what I read he was the Chiefs WR Coach up until 2020 then switched to RBs.Potential replacement for Terrell?
