So let's hire a freshly fired HC who was a middle of the road OC previously, to be our OC. Didn't we just do this? Is it Ground Hogs Day already?
And the bad organization knows what's right? Hah, I love how people who want to blast the Jets point towards Jacksonville and say "Hey, they are doing it the right way."
In the NFL the coach is more important than the GM. The GM should merely be an extension of the coach in terms of getting the players that fit the system and scheme. Kansas City realized this and are doing so.
Parcells always wanted it that way and Belichick has had it that way for years now.
2011 another early exit from the playoffs for the Falcons as they score 2 pts
2012, Atlanta knocks Giants out of the playoffsWhat it means: This was much more than just a loss. This was devastating for the entire Falcons organization. Yeah, give the Giants credit for winning the game. But give the Falcons plenty of blame for losing. This team had sent out a strong signal that the Super Bowl was the goal when it traded up to draft Julio Jones and signed free-agent defensive end Ray Edwards. The Falcons didn’t even come close to the Super Bowl. For the second straight year -- and the third time in four years -- the Falcons lost their opening playoff game.

Mularkey has had MULTIPLE very successful stints as an offensive coordinator (leading to multiple head coaching gigs). He may not be suited to be a head coach, but he's clearly qualified to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL.
The Cowboys were so impressed with Sparano that they brought in Jason Garrett in 2007 as OC.
I like both him and Whisenhunt as possible offensive coordinators next year.
Whisenhunt is one of the few I think who could both directly work with Rex and possibly make Sanchez lead this team to a surprising 7-9 or even 9-7 season next year.
Anyway, what does that have to do with the fact that you were shown that Mularkey's offense wasn't middle of the road as you stated?
Mularkey has had 8 years of experience as an OC.

Two candidates for the Jaguars HC job are expected to be 49ers OC Greg Roman and Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer.
