    I want to be Director of Prior Scouting.

    I will tell them who they should have drafted ten years ago.

    That's certainly what it would seem to indicate. I can't say I know if O'Quinn is good at that, but I'm sure how McCarthy will use him. If I remember correctly, O'Quinn was given this role before McCarthy was hired, so McCarthy may have his own people whom he trusts to actually handle the role while O'Quinn wears the title but is given other responsibilities.

    I don't see any reason to believe that O'Quinn isn't a hardworker or that he is a malcontent (in fact, it seems that the Joneses at least think highly of him), so McCarthy can likely find some role for him.

    You just dont recognize the name. He was responsible for the worst special teams unit weve had to endure in my lifetime.

    Of course he may be a good scout. That I dont know.

    You mean you didn’t like being on the edge of seat every time Maher was attempting a field goal, lol.

    I love this guy. He was a big reason Garrett was let go!

    It doesnt have to be, Jerry proclaimed he was gonna be a good one so he will give him ample amount of chances to prove him right.

    Next up, Josh Brent, Director of Player Personal Safety.


    Too soon?

    He has a long history as a very solid scout. That's what got him the opportunity to be ST coach. They're simply putting back where he excelled.

    Simple as that.

    Veterans are valuable to any organization as part of the foundation, and if I failed at a position, but the company valued me enough to offer me another position, I’d take it. He might make less, but he’ll still make a better living than most everyone on this forum doing what he loves, WITHOUT moving or starting over.

    I would call BS on that..why would he change in what he is looking for as a scout...than a special teams coach? He is still picking the team...

    He may have an eye for talent but when it comes to coaching he is on Saturn, third ring out.

    Try DECADE. He was a scout prior for Dallas before they advanced him to ST coach. Now they put him back to where he was after 10 years of lousy ST's. What gives by not getting rid of this hemroid?!

    He didn't have an eye for talent when he was hired by Dallas as a scout years prior.

    That's not the capacity he was hired back in though. His roots are in player personnel, and that's what he is now being hired to do.

    Not sure I understand what you are saying.

    Are you saying if someone is a poor coach that also automatically means they are a poor scout? Does that also mean if he's a good scout then he would automatically be a good coach?

    The ability to recognize talent does not mean one has the ability to utilize it.

    Garrett made all his own hires. Or so we were told.

    He shouldn't have been a ST coach. He sucked.

    Every week the advance scout compiles the upcoming opponent's last several games.
