The guy who assembled the 'dream team'. The guy who made his offensive line coach his defensive coordinator.

The guy who's dominant unit (defense) was shouldered by another coach who is now dead. I can't stress that last one enough.
I mean I don't think Andy is the worst guy out there, but boy this place is ecstatic about it.
I think the fact that Pioli and Romeo are gone are probably as big as Reid being hired. This time last week when it was rumored it might Pioli and Ferentz I was not going to follow this team next year. Now there is at least hope. Sure, there are some negatives with Reid, but I believe he's as good as anyone available. I think the main thing has me excited is the selection of the QBOTF. I trust Reid to make that call more than anyone else out there. I hope it's Geno, but if not, I trust him.
Nothing is a given in life, but it at least gives us some hope. It also establishes the fact that our owner gives a shit.
