Arians will be the only one to succeed. Too many teams are hiring these young offensive guys who have barely cut their teeth in the game and now they're putting the entire franchise on their shoulders. Watch next year half these guys get fired.

The Packers wasn't doing the next Sean McVay thing, they are doing what they always done, hired youngish OCs to be HC. The Packs has done it since Vince Lombardi, all save for two hire was OCs. The two HCs hired did not fared so well. Mc Carthey was the young unknown 49ers OC that was ranked dead last when he was hired. There were many doubters and head scratching but he managed to motivate Favre and groom Rodgers and had a pretty good run in GB. At the end of the day, I trust my president and GM over you guys!

(IF its a good relationship) Aaron Rodgers is the best QB for a young offensive coach like Lafleur. Rodgers has made Mccarthy look like a good coach in the past. With an offensive coach working with him (and not getting thrown under the bus in the media) Rodgers can allow Lafleur to get away with some mistakes as he grows as a coach

So interesting that Sims talks so glowingly about Baker Mayfield and he was absolutely ugly when Mayfield was announced as the #1 pick on draft day. His nastiness spilled over the desk and his laughter was insulting. He tried to backpedal a bit by saying some crap like "I think he's a good player" but then went into his rant about being #1. His behavior was unforgivable then and my assessment of him as an analyst has not changed. He's a phony.

I think the reason Saints fans hate Lefkoe is because they idolize Drew Brees more than they root for their own team. Even if you pick the Saints to go to the Super Bowl, you are still their #1 enemy if you dare to diss Drew Brees.

I'm from New Orleans. I don't hate Lefkoe, but that mentality is the opposite. It's all seen as the same thing. If you are hating on Drew Brees, it's seen as hating New Orleans, the Saints, the region etc. What the Lefkoe haters are hearing is: Sure you might have a good team this year, but you still have the stink of playing for the Saints, living in New Orleans, being from a backwards area. You might win a game or two, but you'll never be part of the NY, Boston, Chicago, Dallas cool kids club. Win a superbowl? Maybe you'll pull it off, but you'll never really be embraced. Philly or L.A win a few games then ya'll can come hang out, but New Orleans? Meh, you're o.k but......

Counterpoint on LaFleur, coming from an ever-hopeful Packers fan: I think you'd rather be too early on a hire than miss your chance altogether, and since the Packers don't make coaching changes very often, that's what this feels like to me. LaFleur definitely hasn't fully developed as a playcaller yet, he's got lots of room for improvement, but you've gotta figure that if he had a good year with a healthy Mariota in 2019, he'd be snatched up in a minute and the Packers would've missed their chance at someone they really seem to think is THE guy. If nothing else, he's certainly more likely to be able to relate to Aaron than McCarthy was, and even in Tennessee his offense showed more variety than McCarthy had in years (which isn't saying much, but still).

If hue Jackson gets the bengals job it’ll be atrocious but it might be literally the first time a black coach was hired despite their bad resume. Arizona fires Steve Wilkes only to hire a insanely under qualified coach. Additionally I’ve never seen a black coach be hired for the reasons Kliff kingsbury got hired. Smh looks?charisma? Come on.that is the halo effect gone wild and people don’t realized (or refuse to) that Brian Flores is not going to be as “relatable” when he interviews for a job because he’s black and it’s at a subconscious level. He doesn’t remind a lot of owners and gms of a family member or friend that they think positively about and as a result there is no connection that can be used to influence them. Not saying everyone is racist it’s just about identifying with a person and relatability. Caldwell where’s he?

Lmao lefkoe really doesn’t like Kliff. Texas tech student speaking, the man can coach. Just because you can read stats from a guy working w 3 and 2 stars against NFL QB’s Baker, Kyler, Ehlinger, Rudolph, etc. The futuristic NFL that I remember you drooling about (Chiefs v. Rams) stems from the Mike Leach’s ( Former TTU HC) air raid. With his disciples changing the league, I like this hire no matter the numbers. If we’re going off of “numbers” how is Kyle Shanahan working out? Not so great if a HC by that measure... watch this young coach work the young QB and team. Keep that same energy. Remember the knock on Mahomes.... it’s just a “System” product of the big 12.

side note about Colts O-line: Frank Reich runs a protection meeting every week with the entire offense not just the o-line. Guge actually went on record saying its pretty rare for a coach to be that involved. I think Reich is the leader behind the protection schemes tbh. Not trying to take anything away from Guge though. Good coach.

You guys failed to mention Mariotas health when talking about Lafleur. Calling his passing game bad but failing to bring up that Gabbert played in 8! games this year seems like a big oversight.

How can you honestly say that? EVERY single game he has multiple bone headed play calls, the team was extremely undisciplined and he didn't understand clock management worth a damn. He always just looks lost and confused on the sideline and that doesnt inspire confidence in the players at all. I think he can be a decent defensive coordinator if the team has a stern head coach but dont make this about race. He isn't a bad coach because hes black. he's a bad coach because hes a bad inexperienced coach.

Lol the whole issue with TEN offense is that it’s based on the Shanahan zone blocking scheme and the OLine needs time to learn it. That’s why it took time for Henry to find his stride also. There was no depth at wide receiver. The team thought Rishard mattews could be number 2 going in the season. Plus Gabbert is the worst QB of the past decade(see QBR). This Lafluer dude basically out coached Belichek in a game. So I will take a chance on this guy and let him work with Rodgers, Packers top 5 OLine, Adams and Jones. Aaron Rodgers was the only QB this season with a worse play action efficiency (thanks McCarthy). Now imagine Aaron Rodgers dropback and throw bombs to wide open post like Matty Ice(elite). Lafluer can also do that for 12. Be scared 31 other teams.
