Good hire. Splendid hire considering that this isn't that great of an option for a coich looking to succeed. They're right on the verge of needing a MAGAton of explosives to blow it up and cap space that's about as ideal as a brillo pad hand job.
Still, he'd have been my first choice of the existing market.
Love the Bowles inclusion. That dude did good things with crap lineups several times over and he'll have to rebuild the whole back-end of this defense next season. He's a former safety and made his early living coaching DBs. He may actually be able to exceed Schiano with this personnel set. Unfortunately, keeping Jamiss means the defense absorbs the salary cap brillo pad hand job issue.
Clod is the counterpoint, obviously, since he comes back and we have to build a wall around our already inconsistent, incapable, QB. We'll find out all we need to know about that in the 1st quarter of the first game next season because the last guy you want tossing the rock in a "no risk it, no biscuit" scheme is the schmuck Licht calls our QB. If Clod and Arians and...
Leftwich makes his way back to disaster. I'm not convinced that is a bad thing, but we know exactly zero about that since his career highlight as a coach is taking over for the guy who got fired ahead of him and then getting fired himself, largely because his rookie quarterback didn't progress.
Goodwin is a win if only because it means that War-fucking-hop is vanquished.
The real win in all of this is that, given the fact that Licht has uber-fucked the personnel on this team, and tantalized everyone into thinking it was a good idea, we're going to take it in the shorts on defense yet again. That doesn't sound like good news, but it's the truth. Unless Licht's even dumber than I give him credit for, he'll have to draft an OT, an OG, an RB, 3-24 CBs, a S for good measure, a LB or three, in that order. Again, doesn't sound like good news, especially considering we have one of the top 10 DTs in the league leaving to fit Jameis's option year, but Todd Bowles is apparently on board. If we're lucky, he's figured out that he's a career coordinator vice head coach. If we're not, at least he can get us tracking toward managing shitty personnel for a year or so and we can get out of the trend of 25+ finishes we endured under the HEAD.
