    As much as I couldn't stand you as a HC munch, thank you for what you did for the Titans/ Oilers for the past 30 years. You are a class act, a great oline coach and HOF, definitely something to hang your hat on and I wish you the best @ the next stop wherever that may be.

    Didn't the Texans interview him for a HC position when they eventually hired Kubiak?

    It's not just an excuse. Damn when will people stop ignoring the fact that both the Eagles and the Chiefs had drastically improced QB play because two young QBs in Foles and Smith balled out of their skulls. Give us QB play like either of those guys and we're definitely in the playoffs maybe even the AFC championship. A QB can make or break you. They had Foles and Smith, we had Locker and Fitzpatrick it's no contest and you all know it.

    The one turnaround that I cannot say a thing about was Harbaugh in San Fran. That was a masterful performance in which he turned and underwhelming first round QB who was almost universally regarded as a bust and turned him into what he has become. Harbaugh changed the culture of that locker room and brought the best out of the talent on that team in one season. Can't take anything away from him even though he's a raging douche. I liked Munch but now that he's gone I pray we find a guy who can produce similar results.

    Both Harbaugh's are excellent examples of how significant a coach can be with a rapid culture change. The talent does have to be there but so does the energy from the coach. I'm certain if we select a high energy coach who is intelligent and experienced in a winning culture we will be playoffs in 2 years. We need a QB. That us the only concern I have with the upcoming transition.

    Not that I'm aware of. I remember them wanting to interview him for a OC position but Fisher denied the interview.

    Foles was on the roster and played meaningful downs last season for the Eagles. The system is the biggest part of why the Eagles were successful this year.

    Let's not pretend that "playing meaningful downs" and being the unquestioned starter for the majority of the season are the same thing please. That same Chip Kelly system was getting the Eagles' ass kicked in the beginning of the season or did everyone forget that? Foles' emergence as a borderline elite QB (so far) was the key difference. Foles was also a rookie last year, the comparison is weak.
