Read what I wrote. Lovie was lucky Rod became available. Rich Rod was fired in January. Our season ended in November. Lovie didn’t interview Rod until after the Arizona firing. Lovie was lucky Rod became available and lucky that by taking 2 months to search he could find someone of that quality.Ok......so I said he said Lovie got lucky. And you say he said Lovie got lucky......what are we talking about here

Josh is betraying that trust. He shouldn't have sanctioned Miles Smith being hired as a permanent assistant, full stop.The only good thing is that Josh must be approving of this.
In Josh I trust.
. . . except for quality coaching of fundamentals. Odds of this ending well = low. Sigh. (hope I am wrong, of course)You had a young defense last year and it will be a year older this season with a lot of DL guys to shuffle in. They wore down last season. We lost one LB'er and gain three. Lost one secondary guy and gain two. Five new DL with no losses there. Everything is there for the defense to be better.
we need recruiters.
do I wish we could have attracted a top notch DC ala Vic Koening ? sure , but Lovie has his own scheme and its not widely used and he only could offer a one year deal, and its no sure thing vs other programs out there. I realize all assistants are on year by year deals, but still
Lovie best use that last remaining position on a top notch recruiter. Hes going to sink or swim next year with the players we have, but if he wants to get a 2-3 years tacked on, he needs to keep bringing the Jimmies and the Joes in .
As much as I don't like how this went down, I doubt it costs us a game next year. It is what it is
Uh, we lost two players off that defense. We add five DL, three LB'ers, and two DB's. Tons of players returning needed to work in the new guys as needed. Defense should be better on paper alone.We've had youth for three years and we will be young next year (the next batch of freshman THE STAFF HAS
PROMISED PLAYING TIME). Fundamentals and discipline will still be a problem. Unless we have the next
Urlacher and Tillman I'm afraid this defense will be no better. if we have key injuries like we really didn't have
last year, it could be a disaster. But I'm with Olaf and hope I'm wrong too.
They have to wait to announce the 3rd hire until the job posting is closed.So I guess they just finally gave up on finding qualified candidates? Are they gonna leave a spot empty? So weird.... If this was the plan all along, why wait to announce it? This just looks bad from multiple angles.
We'll see how they look on the field this fall I guess, but I'm bracing for another strong offense dragged down by weak defense year. Please surprise me with a competent defense!
