With the defensive players rallying for Gun and the offensive players rallying for Saunders, could it be possible they both would stay as cordinators? Is their desisions based on ego or is it money driven? What if Carl said to Saunders go out and get your best offer and we'll match it...would Saunders stay even if Edwards was the head coach?

I don't think AS is staying EXCEPT as a coach. He has too many teams courting him to stay as a coordinator.

No. Saunders will be a HC somewhere in the NFL next season. I hope we don't end up watching him take another team to the dance, and sure as hell hope he doesn't end up in Oakland.

I think that if we told Al we'd match his best offer, Al Davis would offer him a $2 zillion deal.

Saunders in Oakland is one of my biggest offseason fears. Moss plus a QB of Saunders choosing? It could turn that franchise around.

Valid point but were using the "scouts honor" system for this scenario.

So your saying ego over money.

I don't know how much ego that is... just not wanting to play second fiddle anymore. The guy has been one of the best assistants in the NFL for a long time now, while other coordinators can have one or two good seasons and be the hottest thing going... if he wants a go at a head coaching job, I think his accomplishments merit a shot at one.

That's a harsh way of putting it, but yeah.

Probably a better way to say it is taking the opportunity to advance yourself in your career despite the pay cut.

Yes I agree he could and should be a head coach, but if money isnt the issue, then its ones ego vs. humilty.

Al would never never go to Oakland. Maybe another OC job in the east.

Well I was wrong...but "money" did prove to be more important than "ego" with Sanders.
