If the Cowboys hire Jim Harbaugh as head coach I will become a Cowboys hater. That would definitely be the last straw from Mr. Jones.
Ron Rivera *yawn*
Give me the guy who has actually won championships as a head coach.
I could see Meyer coaching here for three years and then he gets tired of the Joneses. He leaves and the Joneses find someone they feel comfortable with (Moore, Witten, Lee).Harbaugh and Meyer both have you wondering if they will stick around if the get to a SB. Both have a history of moving on after hitting a goal.
why I'm for Riley over both
I would just say....please give us three reasons why we can believe Jerry will hire a coach with some authority like Urban Meyer. I hope I’m wrong, but I just don’t think Jerry will hire anyone empowered with any real authority. I expect another Chan Gailey or Coach Cupcake.
Urban Meyer is the coach with the greatest upside / mystery. Very successful college coach who has not coached in the big leagues. He was able to succeed without having a "Top" college QB and seems to understands the value of getting the ball to his playmakers and adjusting his offenses to do just that.
Jim and Ron are probably the safer picks as both were able to get to Super Bowls with less than prototypical QBs. They also both seem to understand the value on the Defense side of the ball and would hopefully bring balance to Big D.
I would probably give Urban the slightest of leads. With his history of putting players in positions to succeed, I believe he could do wonders with our current roster. He comes with a bit more risk than a Harbaugh or Rivera, but if he can do in the NFL what he has done in the NCAA, then he will be just fine.
In any case, any of them should be better than the "just beat the man in front of you" B.S. we have seen the past decade+.
