Looks like he may be back after taking next year off. It mentions he has a home and is building a second one in CA. He has no noncompete agreements with the Seahawks so he could go anywhere if he comes back.

Hmmm... Anybody think he may wind up in San Fran or jokeland? If he goes back to where he began his career with the 'niners, that would make Mike Nolan available. I wonder where he would go.

...please...PLEASE take Mike Nolan. The guy was a great Defensive coordinator, and I'll give him credit he has improved our defense...but the offense has become non-existent under his watch. I feel bad for Alex Smith's injury, but his move to the IR did relieve me as it likely signals the end to his time as a 49er. We are officially in the Tebow lottery...sad, but true!

Dont know whos really running things in any of the Cali teams but I wouldnt mind seeing him in KC. Ive been calling for Cowher but Holmgren has exp as a pres. Maybe we can talk him into relocating to KC! :lol:

I think there's a good shot we could get Holmgren if the timing of it all works out. He may see it as kind of the same opportunity he got with the 'hawks.

The only thing is, it will be after next season before Holmgren comes back. So, we would be stuck with Herm until then or, even worse, put our hopes in a new HC that doesn't even make it past 1 season.

And the thing about Cowher is he seems happy in the booth right now an doesn't seem to be seriously entertaining ideas to come back in a coaching or management position. Throw him enough money and he may bite but he may just not be interested any more.

We may have a shot at bringing "shot" back... I still don't know how I feel about that. I like the talent that Marty gets-- he can build really good teams but I would want somebody else in control of the game and players on the field. Marty should have nothing to do at all with play-calling.

I've hear Pioli mentioned. I doubt it. Why would he have any interest in leaving the Pats for us? More importantly, how could you convince him to leave Belichick's side? Money? I guess, maybe.

Holmgren would give KC fans the illusion that Carl P. gave a dam.

I wouldnt be surprised to see him here even tho he competes in the worst division in football.

Holmgren is a very good coach, and has had success everywhere he went. However the west coast variety system that he runs doesn't fit the personnel you guys have started to put in place...Bowe is a great vertical threat, but what I've seen at times are sloppy routes and his focus on routine catches evades him at times. Not the ideal WR for a west coast offense. Additionally the QB position is a problem as is the O-line for what Holmgren would want to accomplish.

Cowher is a much better fit, where he could use most of your current personnel and just fill in a few holes with his more conservative power pased offense. Really the difference between Cowher and Herm is the realization that you have to prioritize the O-line in the draft and you have to mix up the play calling just a little bit.

Marty only took a year or 2 off before going back to coaching. Im sure Cowher is starting to get the itch as well. I woudnt be offended to bring Marty back and let him run things either. I would prefer Cowher but Holmgren and Marty would be better than what we have or atleast diffrent.

Anything outside of Matt Millen would be better than what you have right now...:lol:

Thats where a good coach trains his guys to run the right routes. In the west coast offense you almost always have to have a vertical threat in every route. I think Bowe would fit in any offense from what ive seen.

No matter what coach we bring in is going to have to address the QB position (unless Croyle can prove he can take the hit and not get injured). Main thing the next coach or Herm (God forbid) is going to be the O-line. The D will come back if Herm will get rid of the damned cover 2 (prevent) defense!:bananen_smilies046:

The cover 2 doesn't have to be a 'prevent'...but you have to have the right personnel to run it. Think about the Tampa Bay Bucs from about 98 to '02. It wasn't just the scheme that made that defense work, it was also the personnel. Heck they still have the right personnel. It isn't about all-star super talented Linebackers...its about guys that are fast and fill a role. Derrick Brooks was the only really athletic guy in that group...but the other linebackers on the Bucs back then were very fast and were tackling machines. D-brooks made the big plays...the other guys just made the basic ones. Sapp & Simeon Rice could create plenty of pass rush from both the inside and outside, which forced double teams on them freeing the linebackers up to make plays. The corners weren't super fast, but they were physical, and great tacklers...they'd give you a 2-3 yard out or slant, but you didn't get 10-15 yards after the catch...EVER.

The defense forces you to gain in small yardages and is dependant on a pass rush that will put you in 2nd/3rd and long situations to end a drive. It works...but again you need the personnel to make it work. Last year you guys had the pass rush, but not the secondary...this year the needs seem to have switched.

It isn't the scheme though...it is the personnel. Tampa is still running the scheme and their defense is doing just fine.

Im sorry to disagree with you but, it IS the scheme of how this defense works. Its no diffrent then the run and shoot and now its no diffrent than the spread offense in college football. Yes, I understand you have to have the right personnel but thats where Carl and Herm hasnt got it done. These players are getting paid millions of dollars a year and they should be able to adapt to what ever offense or defense the team is running.:bananen_smilies046:

If it was the scheme that didn't work anymore Tampa's D would be folding...however with the right personnel the scheme works. That was my point.
