[QUOTE=greenwichjetfan;3429695][B]I've stated plenty of times[/B] that Schotty needs improving, but [B]I don't think he should be fired[/B]. I've also proclaimed my liking of Kubiak...I even wanted him for HC of this team (see hc threads last year).
All that being said, I'm ecstatic at what has transpired with Rex and our defense, and if we have a chance to land Kubiak for OC, we take it.
Continuity for Sanchez is one thing, but Schotty's going to go soon anyways, whether he's promoted elsewhere or eventually let go. May as well cut bait now and have Sanchez relearn right now instead of in the future. Kubiak will make him a star.[/QUOTE]
What are you saying? Kubiak will have a [B]demonstrably better results [/B]than Schotty? All things considered, age of the team etc, not to mention the sad story of Alex Smith (4 OC's in 4 years) - this all MAY add up to keeping Schottenheimer. He will be a legitimate HC at some point, but with newbie coaches wavering a bit under playoff pressure, I feel sentiment may be going against Schott this year. However, that said, Buffalo is desperate. Who knows?
Anyway, like copernicus and others have stated, the status quo is very appealing when the choice of guys is topped by Gary Kubiak. BTW, the Jets have a zone-blocking, WCO-type coordinator that beat down Denver for several years. His name is Bill Callahan.
