So, who you wanna see?

Maybe we can lure Arians back.  I miss him already.

My vote is for Tommy Maddox, but only if he wears his hat like Joe Walton.

Hue Jackson - the guy who played Wolverine? I thought he was an Aussie.  He'd have Ben kicking it all over the place.

At this point it just looks like the front office had no plan beyond "let's fire Arians!".  Finny, you failed to add Randy Fichtner to the poll.  I honestly think he will be the default hire and if he is, it will be much of the same.  I heard it said somewhere that Fichtner is the genius behind the bubble screen.

My brain isn't working today.  Stupid oversight.

I'd put Fichtner as the fave right now.  And agree that it will be much of the same, plenty of dazzle between the 20s, hard suckage in the RZ, continued woes WRT OL, RB, and TE.

Despite the fact that many here liked Clements, and the fact that Clements went to my high school, I never really saw the attraction.  Dude's been around since for ever; in fact, he'll be 60 next year.  Seems like he ought to have had a shot by now.

I voted Haley with supremely limited conviction. No Clements. Fichtner too much of the same. Todd Haley is the pick here.

As I said the day Arians was canned, from the outside, my leading candidate is Clements.  He's coached Favre and/or Rodgers for the last 6 or 7 years.  Those are some pretty prolific offenses.  Gotta think he's learned a thing or two in that timeframe and can apply it to #7.

Well, moot point now, with Clements installed as GB's OC.

Fichtner and Tomlin coached together at Arkansas St. for a year, IIRC, around 98-2000.  They both coached at Memphis, though not at the same time.  Fichtner took over WRs after BA got promoted, and then became QB coach after Anderson left, so you know Ben probably wants him.  I just don't see Tomlin going outside the box on this one.

Is it Tomlin's choice to make?

Well, true.  Kind of like in marriage, when guys think they're making the choice that the wives have already decided.  Tricky that way.  But who would AR2 and Colbert want?  Well, Colbert, maybe Herman Cain.  Herman Cain for OC!

NFLN reporting Zorn is being considered. I hope not


But he's from the legendary Dennis Erickson coaching tree!


From Zorn's wikipedia page:

Zorn moved up to the pro coaching ranks in 1997. Zorn joined the Seattle Seahawks as quarterbacks coach after serving in the same capacity with the Detroit Lions (1998–2000). He was instrumental in the development of rookie quarterback Charlie Batch in 1998.[3] Batch’s 88.3 passer rating that season ranks as the fourth-highest rookie mark in NFL history. During his time in Seattle, Zorn worked with Seahawks Head Coach Mike Holmgren and Offensive Coordinator Gil Haskell in implementing the team’s offense while also furthering the development of the team’s quarterbacks.[3] In 2003, Zorn tutored Matt Hasselbeck who set a franchise record with 3,841 passing yards in. Hasselbeck has become the franchise’s most-efficient passer (85.1 rating) while joining Zorn as the only Seahawks’ quarterback to pass for 3,000-plus yards in three consecutive seasons.[3] In 2007 under Zorn, Hasselbeck set Seattle single-season marks for attempts (562), completions (352) and yards (3,966). He also threw for a career-high 28 touchdowns en route to his third Pro Bowl selection.[3] On January 30, 2010 Zorn was hired by the Baltimore Ravens as their quarterbacks coach, to replace Hue Jackson, who had departed to the Oakland Raiders.
Under Zorn, quarterback Joe Flacco reached career high totals in touchdowns (25) and quarterback rating (93.6), as well as a career-low 10 interceptions.
On January 27, 2011, Zorn was fired by the Ravens.

Nothing there I can say's particularly exciting.
