    No reason this doesn’t become the norm, makes too much sense.

    first, the Rooney rule was always just stupid. You cannot legislate veiled favoritisms from the coaching process. That said, its idiotic to try to force someone to hire a man of color because they are minority...just weird and wrong. When I hire someone, NONE of that factors in...I could care less..all things are equal. I just want the best person..the best hire for the job. LARGELY, I think the NFL is that way. MAYBE not always, but is today more than ever. I say just hire the best man or woman for the job and shove the stupidity with the rule changes up your arse...People will come around in time. ALL the rules in the world won't force change. PEOPLE DO..RELATIONSHIPS as far as the finer details of this rule propasal..Brian Daboll is HC I agree with some of its premise. Guys need to be able to interview., Maybe I am misunderstanding this proposal. Maybe someone can explain it better to me.

    I don't think that was the intent of the Rooney rule. The intent was for minorities to get more interviews. Get more chances. NFL had to do something because it looked crazy that the NFL was full of black players but it was the same 3 black guys getting head coaching jobs.

    It was always this slippery slope though because a team is going to hire who they want and teams made a mockery of it. They'd literally just interview the same 3 guys every year....Marvin Lewis, Hue Jackson, Jim was a joke. For more people of color to get chances as head coaches its going to to take the players or head coaches to do something about won't come from ownership however.

    We were ahead of the curve! We can’t miss out if we never make the playoffs!

    I agree to an extent look at guys like Jack Del Rio he is overall mediocre HC but he keeps getting bites at the apple. Not knowing how interviews are done and the type of back and forth that is there. There are 100+ ways a guy wins or loses a job in an interview. Use Dallas as an example if a guy came in and said he was going to upset the apple cart he is pretty much only guaranteed a, "Thank you for coming in."

    Yeah that is true.....but I mean I'd suspect that anyone who even interviews with Dallas has to know the deal here. I wonder how that Parcells interview went though lol....I'm sure he ran that process lol. He probably hired himself when he was threw with Jerry.

    Couldn't possibly be that they are horrible interviewees, or they failed in previous head coaching opportunities, or they call somebody else's offensive plays, or there are more qualified people that made better impressions.

    Can they also submit a rule that owners can't implement themselves as GM?

    Hmmmm Bills feel salty about this? This been going on for years. They probably requested to interview coaches under the same circumstances. It's on the owner to deny or accept the request. If a team is serious about a candidate they should wait until after the playoffs.

    Backwards - this is to help a guy like Daboll.

    It's stupid that assistant coaches get punished for being on successful teams, even if that isn't really the deciding factor.

    The Bills make a championship game for the first time in decades and all of the sudden they start making rules?

    I don't hate that idea, it won't ever have an impact on the Cowboys, we don't make it too deep into the playoffs.

    They are right. It's a BS distraction for a team trying to make a run. Let them concentrate on the task at hand and interview afterwards. There's no reason to rush.

    It'll be interesting because it would have some impact on college coaching positions and players committing to coaches after national signing day and coaches bolting for the nfl after the super bowl which would be even later due to a 17 week season. Will coaches turn down college jobs waiting for nfl jobs?

    This should be in place. Not like teams are crippled if a coach is hired after the Super Bowl. I would take it a step further. The interview process and the hirings should all take place after the season is officially over.
