***** knew nothing about hiring head coaches so I was loathe to give him too much rope.
Well Reid's dicked up his last few DC hires....so why give him rope in this area?
I'm going to give him a chance because it's only fair, but I'm not giving him any more rope than I would have if ***** had hired him. There's nothing in Reid's track record to suggest that he's worth a damn at finding qualified DCs.
The one thing I will give him credit for on this, is that it seems he went and got the guy who's style fits whats here, not forcing guys into roles they aren't as good at.
