etherdome Posted January 20, 2008 Share Posted January 20, 2008 this would be the order I would put the HC candidates, in order of probability: (from most probable to least)1 Leslie Frazier: A very good DC with Tony Dungy lineage. He has been around and has held DC as well as HC positions. He is a quiet-type that commands respect from his players. He drastically improved the Vikings' Defense in only one season. 2 Steve Spagnuolo: An excellent DC in the Johnson mold. He also commands his players' respect with a family-like approach. He is an excellent communicator and gets the most out of his players. 3 Mike Singletary: This is the "thinking out of the box" candidate. His lack of DC experience is compensated by his old school work ethic and organizational skills. He is another candidate that commands respect and is an excellent teacher.4 Mike Smith: Another old school guy. He is quiet and thorough. He has done a fantastic job in Jax and deserves a HC position. He will get a job soon. 5 Kirk Ferentz: He is a college coach with solid NFL experience. Personally, I don't want him, but he is a darkhorse candidate, considering his Pioli connection.6 Ron Rivera: This guy can coach. He may not interview well, but he can deliver. He should have gotten HC offers, but something behind the scenes is holding him back. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
