I thought the improvement was enough to justify bringing Buckner back. I also liked what I saw of Buckner on Hard Knocks and I believe that our players were buying into him. Unlike Hawaii I actually think he did a good job and I am a proponent of continuity.

    My thoughts on Guenther are not so positive.
    I agree on the continuity aspect. I also donít think he did a bad job, I do believe the move makes sense though so therefore Iím not terribly upset about it or confused by the move.

    If you can upgrade a position you do so
    Buckner isn't bad, that's just crazy talk. He took a raw 4th round DE and molded him into a damn good player, I bet if you ask Maxx he will give Buckner a lot of credit.

    That doesn't make Buckner a bad DL coach

    That's because Marinelli was alive when Lincoln was President.

    No it doesnít but it does put a more proven coach in the position.

    You have to hand it Gruden and Mayock. At least they recognize that the D needs help.

    I will hand it to them if they fix it. I do have some faith that they will.
