If I hired a defensive coach it would be Eberflus

Got the #1 defense in the league without a lot of big names. This article was last year and they’re even better this year. I love the Colts FO and would take anybody from there.

He fits my idea of who we need. Quinn (and Bradley, Patricia etc) are examples of why a DC who works with a HC who runs the D is not a good idea. Especially when that D is full of Pro Bowlers. You didn't need to be a good coach to look like a good DC in Seattle.

My worry with Bieniemy is the same. He's the OC of a team with an offensive minded HC for a team full of stars. It doesn't necessarily translate to a new team.

Eberflus is a DC on a team with an offensive minded HC, on a unit that is doing well without many superstars - that is a sign of a good coach. Of course, he'd need to find a very good OC to come with him.

Yep...I think the Lions will tap Ed Dobbs for GM and Eberflus as HC.  Would be great hires for them

Brandon Staley is another coach I’d like

I love what Staley is doing in L.A.

He’s brought some fresh ideas to that defense while not completely tearing down what Wade built. That’s a sign of a confident coach IMO. My only pause is if it’s too soon for the big chair.

You must be one of the one's skeptical about Eric Bienemy.

I got the same questions about him that I have of the few other guys I like at this point. There isn’t a candidate in this year’s pool I feel is a no-brainer.  But I do love his intangibles.

If we go with a defensive guy for HC I like him, Dodds as GM and Mike McDaniels as OC
