This has a different feeling than last offseason. It really feels like a fresh start. I was excited last off season, but the fact we retained Gene Smith didnt sit all that well with me. If we said a new start, that means from the top down. I like that Khan his hiring people in his image and its a trickled down effect.

IT will all be okay. Caldwell was hired and knows exactly what Khan wants for this team. Gus was hired by Caldwell with the same expectations. If we can put together an old tpye Del Rio team from 2004-2007 (but even better), but add a potent passing attack, I am happy with that. Del Rio's downfall was ignoring the passing game. Thats what crippled our team. I think everything is going to work out good.

In fairness to Del Rio, I think he tried to pay attention to the passing game, assuming he had some input into the draft picks of Williams and Jones, and to a lesser extent Lewis and Jones-Drew (who many initially underestimated as a third-down receiving back).  He also hired Koetter as OC based on his reputation for receiver spacing and a vertical passing game.

But when all that didn't work out as planned, I think he reverted to trying to impose the "DEL RIO SMASH!" offense.
The tourist would realize at once that he had struck the Land of Flowers - the City Beautiful!

Really, many people said the same exact things last season. (5-11)  We all know how that ended. (2-14)  I'll wait until I see what kind of product is put on the field before singing praises.

I'm good with the hire, and I'm looking forward to the 2013 season. I'm not gonna get to caught up with the 'offensive versus defensive head coach' thing like many. Dan Hicken brought up a good point on SFR; Two the most recent prolific offenses were under defensive guys; Tony Dungy (Colts) and Bill Belichick (Patriots) respectively. So just because we have Gus Bradley with a defensive background doesn't necessarily equate to three yards and a cloud of dust. We'll be fine with a good OC, rest of staff, and players throughout free-agency, and the draft.

I see Tucker got hired by the Bears. Good for him. With the right staff, He can piece together a hell of a defense. 2011 was proof of that. And the Bears have a hell of a staff. Im ready to see how that works out for him.

2 offensive guys and 2 defensive guys.

Actually two defensive guys, one special teams/defensive guy and one offensive guy. John Harbaugh was a special teams and DB coach.

to be fair, John has coached everything.   I believe he's been a QB, RB, and TE coach at stops along the way.  PRobably why he's good.

Our hire for Def. Coordinator so far has been the only hire that I'm not that excited about. We hired the Bears LB coach for DC. I'd assume that Gus Bradley will be heavy on the input as far as defense goes though. Maybe for that reason it's a good reason to not hire a big name for the DC position.

Good hire for the Jags.  For anyone who wants to see an improved Jags offense:


However, this is my expression as a long time Hurricanes fan:

Looks like the Jags decided to keep Sullivan and Duffner. I'm happy about that.

Yes!! Especially Sullivan. Im excited about Duffner and I would expect we'd keep Joe Cullen. We had some great defense coaches, but injuries tore our defense down. It started at the end of the 2011 season, and continued in 2012. Oh well, life is good as a Jags fan right now!
