Now, people are mad that Jerry the GM is seemingly forcing these changes on his coach. Would everyone be happier if Jerry did nothing, Jason did nothing and everything remained like it was last year?
I know some here are going to always cry over anything Jerry does because they want to get rid of him. Obviously, that's not going to happen.
[View Full Quote]The best thing that could happen is for Garrett to voluntarily make these changes. Some might think it's best if Garrett was fired. But if those things are not going to happen, isn't it better to have Jerry the GM make changes than let everything remain the same?
Now, I don't know how many of these changes are Garrett's idea and how many are Jerry's, I'm just glad we're not standing pat. There is room for improvement in the way the defense was ran, and there's room for improvement in the way the offense was ran. I'm happy someone is trying to improve those things.
1. The defense to get healthy
2. Fix the offensive line
3. Add quality receiver and push Austin to the slot
4. Add defensive linemen
5. Take play calling away from Garrett and force him to be a head coach
Now we have
1. Brought in a new DC
2. Changed schemes which may predicate some retooling
3. Limited the ability to fix the offensive line by needing defenders
4. That trickles down throughout all the rest except
5. They will bring in an OC
What I wanted is now limited because of what Jones did.
