Well - he's been an OC for 2 years in Cincy previously and it wasn't pretty. Then there's Jim Hostler who was an OC for a single season in San Fran and finished dead last in yards and points...lol. So maybe going in house isn't such a great idea...Agreed. I think if Turner were to go, Zampese would get the OC position.
I'd like to know how much input Matsko had in who to let go and who to bring in. Unless I know that, I'm giving him a mulligan for 2022 based on his exemplary work previously.As far as Matsko goes, there was a time when I used to preach about his ability to turn water into wine along the offensive line. This past season, not so much. We as a fan base assumed based on the solid job he did the last two years that he could just plug anybody in along the o-line and make things hum. In letting go of guys like Flowers and Scherff, I think Rivera got suckered into that line of thinking too. Where is the development of Charles or Paul? As for vets like Leno, Norwell, and Turner, there seemed to be regression on their part this year while under the watch of Matsko. Hey, everybody has a bad year from time to time, but 2022 was an awful look up front, and may start to bring into question if Matsko can lead a group of players absent of any All Pros like he had the benefit of working with while in Carolina and most recently with Scherff.
