Default Ideas for a new DC?

Not that Im under any delusions that input from an internet message boards matters when it comes to getting in the way of Shanahan's cronyism, however obvious it may be.

I submit

Mark Banker, who is the DC for Oregon State.

Bill Shuey, LB coach, Phil Eagles

Bill Sheridan, LB coach, NY Giants

Mike Waufle, DL coach, NY Giants

Nolan and fire everyone on the current staff so he can bring in his own people to install the 3-4.

Thats a good call. I was going to mention him until I considered that he may get a head coaching position fairly soon.

New DC would be useless unless he is given freedom to run his scheme without Mike imposing his 8 men in the box idiocy in the middle of the year. If he is given the freedom, Wade would be my call.

Don't want a name guy. I want someone hungry to prove himself. Someone that might not be afraid to improve, and might be able to ask that of his players as well.

I like this thread and I like the names. I don't mind running a 4-3, you just have to attack from it, 92' Dallas Cowboys style. Bring the heat on the offense.

I'm open to anything. I don't mind hiring unproven but we really need to have a DC and system in place for the next 2 year span. Its going to be huge for this defense.

Anybody want Greg Robinson? ha ha.

I would love Wade Phillips. I don't think he'll ever come back though. Too many hard feelings.

Shanahan gives plenty of freedom to his DC to call the plays. The only time Shanahan has got involved in defense play calling was with Rhodes, which need to be done becuase Rhodes defense was a disaster.

Mike Waufle or Bill Shuey could be good ideas. Waufle coached the defence line that defended New England in superbowl plus the Giants are favored to win Superbowl again. I always like the Eagles defence and their blitz schemes and Shuey has trained under one of the best defensive minds in Johnson. I also like defensive line coach from the Titans. I think his name is Williams. I also wouldn't mind stealing Ron Riveria from the chargers by offering a big contract.

We need a DC that can hit the ground running, would have scouted/studied our defense this season, knows how to spot talent in the draft and has the experience.

So no thanks to college coaches, we don't have the time to let some guy learn on the job.

We need a DC that people are going to give a chance too. Not someone when they give up 30 pts in week 1 where there are threads here saying " Fire _________"

At some point you have to step back and wonder who is actually running the defense.


How many DC's are we going to go thru? It's not like we're hiring from the bottom of the barrel is it?


About time for Shanny to step back and loosen his grip, this defense is the worst i've seen in a long time - playing WEIRD formations because they suck so bad.

I'm tempted to say enough of the DC carousel... it would be the 4th straight year with a new DC if Slowik is replaced. That being said, I can't say I want Slowik back. I do, however, want players a DC can work with. Without that, the DC carousel will keep spinning endlessly and aimlessly.

2nd for MIke Nolan and the 3-4.

Its not like Blowing up the front 7 will matter. Those players aren't even very good in the 4-3. Problem is that Nolan wouldn't work for shanny, and Shanny would hire Nolan who actually might tell him to F off.

1st, it wont matter who is the DC, if he just gets fired after one year.
Bowlen needs to take back complete control of football operations and just have Shanny the HC.
Then allow a new young guy to come in and install his system and be allowed to get the players needed to win a SB, both in the draft, and in FA as well.
Raheen Morris would be my 1st choice.
Of course he will be the head DC after this year in TB, so hes out.
Anyone of these would be an upgrade.

Intitially i thought Nolan would be a good choice, but after thinking about it, do you really think Nolan would put up with all of shannys BS?
He would tell him to F-off by week 3. Bowlen would have to take back control and allow Nolan the freedom to be successful.

Not sure if it's a good choice but Wade Phillips will probably be available.

Slowik has never been good. Ever. Criticisms of his are justified. His defense looks like it has everywhere he's been. If this was a proven defensive coach in his first year, then I think people would be more willing to make some allowances, but Slowik has made this defense his own and it looks exactly like we all knew it would.

I don't trust anyone on the staff to evaluate and develop defensive talent. I fully expect the next draft with Slowik for us to take a bunch of dumb athletes that can't play football. Until we undo all that crap on that side of the ball and get Slowik out of here our defense will be among the worst in the league.
