They also parted ways with esteemed offensive line coach Bob Wylie and one year later his replacement is already gone. So far, Allen hasn't shown me that he is willing to adapt to his talent. He's pretty stuck in his ways if you ask me.
Gotta agree on this. Carson Palmer is not a west coast system guy, at all. The faiders are stuck with Palmer for another year due to his contract so why not try and win with the QB you got? The faiders had some talent, the cupboards were not bare.
