    That may be the key...if they start blowing up the defense schematically and switch to a 3-4 it could take years to even that out in personnel...by then it will be too late. Hopefully he won't go Mangini and start trading for scrubs from his old team.

    y0yoyoin That is a serious injury for Willis McGahee

    i hope someone points out that the panthers had Cam Newton to Haslam...also im watching this press conference and Chud is nervous and i dont hear any confidence whatsoever in his voice...if he cant convince me right now by that speech, i dont see how hes going to control a locker room

    One note...Grossi got his HOF vote back, so the debate on Moddell will be, how shall I say, "lively" to say the least.

    the twitters are saying it's going to be a one gap attacking 3-4 system, which would allow guys like phil taylor and frostee rucker to play end and sheard to play OLB. in that case, an overhaul of personnel isn't really necessary. they'd still need a pass rusher, cb, and FS, just like now. rucker and winn would hold down one DE spot and Taylor would be used like Ngata in Baltimore.

    That would involve having Sheard drop into
    Coverage more consistently. No thanks.

    We don't have the depth at LB for that scheme
    At all, let alone the lack of talent.

    If Jauron stays and a base 43 is used, I'm encouraged.
    Norv and Jauron as coordinators I feel can overcome
    Youthful inexperience at HC until Chud gets his feet wet.

    And what Yo said - he isn't a man that comes across
    With that 'presence' that exudes authority or confidence.

    I will admit its just an interview and press meeting... But
    If he's able to win over that locker room, more power to him.

    Jim Tressel
    David Shaw
    Jim Tomsula
    Mel Tucker

    Tomsula would have been a big get in my, IMO.

    Is there any indication there was any interest/availability of any of those guys? That's really my point, and while you may love Tomsula, I don't know that on paper he's any better than Chudzinski or Trestman, you know, who actually interviewed.

    how often does pitt drop lamaar woodley into coverage? probably about as many times as shead dropped into coverage from a 2 point when cleveland started running zone blitzes the 2nd half of the season after taylor and rubin were both healthy.

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    So, there was Lovie and the CFL guy, for starters. This just seems like a really inopportune year to be claiming there weren't options.

    Woodley is by far a more effective pass rusher who can consistently explode to the edge and drop his hips.
    I love Sheard for what he contributes to this team, but he is not Woodley.

    On top of that - how deep did they usually drop Jabaal? 5-7 yards ... maybe. His assignment was usually to
    trail just over the middle of the field and check the TE off the line.

    That's Lamar (scUMmer) Sheard is NOT that fluid in space or capable of making that play.
