I won't put a name out there because the guy I want doesn't exist right now. Used to, in other years, but not now. We need a guy that's not a rookie, we need a guy that's an experienced NFL winner, we need a guy that commands respect from players, we need a guy who is respected in NFL circles and can assemble a great coaching staff.
Bill Cowher and Andy Reid are the only guys that come to mind. Neither will come to the Circus. So the answer is that the guy that I put my name on is "Not Rex Ryan" because we're going to wind up with another rookie even though I hate the idea. But there's a 10% chance that rookie might become the next Chuck Noll while there's a 100% chance that Rex Ryan never will.
Now go back to playing Dungeons & Dragons with your college junior dorm-mates.
So, you're basically saying you have no clue who our guy is or should be? See, it's just easier to say that, SAR. You don't have to run around in circles by not answering and insulting people.
Proud of you, mate.
