Well we don't know what was being discussed in the interview. The question could have been how would you deal with the circus like atmosphere in NY. His honest answer could have been fire Ryan.
I don't think hurts him long term. He still has the SF gig for as long as he wants it. And if Polian thinks that highly of him, and Polian has the ear of several owners, he will get another crack.
I would prefer a candidate be honest. If he thought the only way of getting this team going in the right direction was firing the HC, he should have said that. Now that is not a new way of thinking. Look at Mularkey. Only had one year AND he worked with Caldwell the year before in Atlanta.
If Gamble was hired and fired Ryan, there would be NO DOUBT who was in charge. Right now with Idzik, we really don't know who has his ear. Hopefully he comes in and is skeptical of Ryan and plays diplomat so as to not alienate Ryan but at the same time, he needs to put his stamp on this team starting now.
