Default Keth Burns to be retained, coaches self-scouting defense right now.

Per 87.7 The Ticket. Couple of good tidbits.

Saying that Fox's staff is complete with Burns being retained on ST. He's the only coach that has been through Shanny, McD and now Fox. Also only person on staff left who was in SB years.

Xanders said all the coaches are doing self-evaluations and with the coaching staff hold overs explaining what they were trying to do. Once it is broken down they will have a meeting next Friday to go over team needs.

Elway at Senior Bowl with scouts right now. Xanders to fly out for the game only.

Is the coaching staff at the practices?

That makes me wonder why Xman isn't around

They're probably late on some part of their prep which might be what Xanders is working on.

Kaylore - I was under the impression listening to the interview that Xanders had been in Mobile and had just returned. Also talked about the draft saying his draft philosophy is to draft BPA at positions of need. In other words if they have graded a WR and a DE the same, and they were happy with their WRs, they would select the DE.

Also today Fox and the D staff are reviewing film from last year.

It could also mean that they pass on a great CB and reach for a DT because that DT is the best one available. I think it's all smokescreen though.

probably going over the current roster to set needs for the draft based on the new systems the team will be running, so he can then see live whats going on at the senior bowl and who might fit.

I'm listening at work and so may have missed that. I thought I heard him say he will fly out for the game.

And yes, they go BPA and then position of most need at that spot. Not a bad philosophy. Best of both worlds. Also said they like to bring in guys who they want to draft for a closer look. Also said they bring guy in just to throw people off what they're doing. The last two years they have worked out everyone we drafted at Dove Valley. I like this because while it tips your hand quite a bit, it also gives you an idea of how they are going to be as players here.

It concerns me that they are attempting to explain what they were trying to do last year. They shouldn't do that. Whatever they were trying to do was a mistake.

That's the whole purpose of a self-evaluation. Then it's analyzed to find out why some things worked, and why others didn't. It's a way to prevent the same mistakes from repeating.

It would concern me a LOT more to retain all these coaches, and NOT analyze what they did and why.

That's gotta hurt. Hope they can drink some beer before watching that film, they'll need it...

Makes sense. John will need somebody to fetch beers and nachos so he doesn't miss any of the action.

Xanders is busy evaluating the stadium menu against the staff's food preferences. He will be arriving with his food value chart in tow.

Link to Q & A with Brian Xanders. He just got back from Mobile recently.
I wouldn't be surprised if he flew back out for the game though.

Yeah.

Xanders was out there, he's back now, but he'll be at the game.

Also, that Q&A states our draft board right now has ~ 250 names, but it will become smaller.

wrong again. Think about it. By explaining what they were asking the players to do the new coaches can evaluate how they performed. They may say well you asked this guy to cover in a zone and obviously hes not good at it. Let's not ask said player to do much zone defending next yr, or lets get him off the field.

But then they might say he did really well when we let said player play the TE man to man. So 1 on 1 hes pretty good, in a zone he stinks, thats what they want to find out.

you do that by breaking down last yrs film, but also reviewing game plans so you know what players were being asked to do. Then you see how well they did that by watching film.

The football acumen on the mane is pretty low. Lets try and start thinking before you say things like going over last yrs game plans is stupid.

Oh, I can understand reviewing film to find out who sucks and who hopelessly sucks, but I think it's a given they cannot run or stop the run.

I think by reviewing what coaches were trying to do, you can then better understand what you see on film, and then make a better evaluation on the players.

Sorry about my post though it came off like an ass like usual.
