I think DA may have just fired himself with this OC hire.
Think about it.
Just think about it.
If this OC comes in and sucks at play-calling, can't improve the scoring and such - what then?
ANOTHER firing/hiring of an offensive coordinator? Seems unlikely.
I like DA, but the guys sucks at attracting offensive coaches. Maybe Reggie does, too. Maybe $$ is the biggest factor.
The thing is - will Reggie stand for another year like Knapp's and be willing to go forward?
This OC Olsen has a helluva lot to prove and I'm worried. I'm already preparing myself for a new HC come 2014. This OC hire is going to be the end of DA.
God I hope I'm wrong. I'll eat some savage crow if I am.
I'll never have been happier to be wrong about something....but the reality is I can't get my hopes up. I saw the writing on the wall last year and I'm not gonna pretend I don't see it this year.
SO Nation - what do you think happens if this OC fails?
Does Reggie allow him and DA to still go forward?
Does Reggie fire DA?
Or does Mark Davis fire Reggie?
I think some people don't realize how important this OC really is. It has to work if we want to keep some stability around here which is much needed. But I just don't see it. I think DA hired another quality QB coach/***** play-caller.
Time will tell. Perhaps this Jon Gruden 2014 talk isn't as farfetched as I thought. Call me a sap or w/e but I just won't fool myself into "let's give this guy a chance.." and have him ***** in my mouth. This ship could very well be going down.
And I'm pretty sure it is if its at all close to what we saw in 2012.
What say you, nation?
p.s. - this definitely deserves a thread of its own so plz dont be moving it to the oc thread..
