Curious as to everyone's opinion...
Hmm, Jerry's hires had a hard time finding other NFL level jobs -- many now serving in lower level positions than they held in Dallas.
BP's hires are interviewing for head coaching jobs. Those that don't stay get work elsewhere pretty quickly. Those aren't puppets. Those are quality guys getting developed by BP. Whether it is Palmer or Haley who gets this job, he'll be interviewing for HC openings in a year or two.
