I'm not ready to burn it down and rebuild like many in here. I'm much more inclined to believe that truth and solutions are often found in the middle. I guess it has something to do with middle age. I think it's probably the best place to start with this "mess" we've found ourselves in -- we're doing much better than we were five years ago; we've acquired a fair amount of talent, some of it at key positions; we're still financially healthy; and we're better off than most teams in the league, especially our conference. Overall, I'd say we need a couple new coaches, a few key position additions, and a lot of camp competition. Anyway, in that spirit I'm offering up my take on moderate change. Head Coach: He may make this decision easy for us by retiring. If not, this is actually a tough one. There is a moderate case for keeping him one more year but everything considered, barring two playoff wins, I'm going with change on this. There are a lot of ways, though, to screw this up -- there are a lot more bad coaches than good out there so it's definitely a risk. Defensive Coordinator: Gone. It would be immoderate to keep him. 3-4: Keep it for now but to the extent possible, get coaches, both DC and head, with experience coaching an aggressive, unpredictable version of 3-4. If this does not appear doable, then go 4-3. Don't keep it just to keep it. TO: Let him go. He has definitely brought a lot more to this team than some think so it's a tough call. It will be difficult to replace his talent. But he's expensive and at the very least a significant nuisance, if not quite the cancer that ESPN makes him out to be. Other players: Generally, DON'T cut a bunch of players. Bring in competition and let them battle it out. If Rivera can't beat out the competition, then cut him -- if he somehow turns it around then all the better. Same goes for Bradie James, Pat Watkins, JJ, etc. Draft a potential replacement for Flozell and let them and McQ battle it out under the assumption that this is Flo's last year and his replacement should take over at some point during the year if doable. Draft and free agency: Stop with the TE infatuation; don't be afraid to go OL early and often; be aggressive in free agency but stay within the budget.
