Is Blank willing to give a proven Head Coach

I remember the Falcons, years ago, passing on an assistant coach by the name of Bill Belichik in order to hire a proven coach by the name of Jerry Glanville. Every great coach has to get his first start somewhere. Always hiring proven guys doesn't guarentee anything.

True, but Belichik sucked with the Browns and had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way before be became the coach he is. No guarantee that an assistant will work out, either.

You're not comparing a guy who has been to the Super Bowl twice, the conference championship 6 times, and won 8 division titles, - you're not comparing that guy to Jerry Glanville, are you?

Exactly...

Mckay has run outta mulligans, so his stay here has got to be on life support.

Predictability "Coaching Retreads" will only take you but so far.

While we're whollowing in the dirt, we need to be sifting for the crowned Jewel where ever it maybe.

I think Cowher would work with McKay. Bill Cowher is a coach, that's what he does. If his fire has been stoked this season and Blank comes up with a strong offer, I don't see why he wouldn't want to coach this team.

Let me repeat...

This team needs it's own infusion of fresh blood, identity and leadership.

Not some blood transfusion from the Pitts.

IMHO Singletary is the best choice for that.

Keep Zimmer and/or give Jackson a looksy, and move on from there.

You need to change scenery right? You need to hire someone to lead? It's time to stop the shinanagans and give a head coach full control. He at that point has the ability to deal with any situations that would arise. I do not dislike McKay or Blank, but frankly, the egos have got to go.

Are you being sarcastic or are you that clueless? I was making a point about assuming that an experienced HC is a better choice than an assistant. Why does something so simple need to be explained to some people...

Sorry, I would rather have a proven winner than a guy who's been coaching for a team that's playing horribly.
