This one to me is a head scratcher.  Maybe he's a QB whisperer or something but he hasn't exactly excelled as a HC.  What am I missing?

The biggest part of being a HC, at least lately, is being able to jive with the QB.  What had Sean McVay done as a HC prior to his signing?

 

Many teams want "the next big thing".  I actually applaud it, rather than going for retreads that didn't work elsewhere... may as well try a young guy with a seemingly brilliant offensive mind.

All true. Issue I have is people labeling coaches like McCarthy as over the hill, a failure, unable to succeed again, based primarily on two bad season, one with Rodgers and another with Rodgers returning from major injury plus some new injuries. Andy Reid, Marty Schottenheimer, Bill Belichik all come to mind. 

 

Sean McVay also has a very good defensive coach, with former head coaching experience (as well as tons of general football experience). I'm not so sure the Rams succeed if their DC is some other young 30-40 year old guy.

I'm sorry, but this hire doesn't make sense in any capacity. A losing college coach for three straight seasons gets a NFL head coaching job. :blink:

Cards are 

1) desperate

2) poorly run

3) not a place many coaches want to go

4) all of the above

 

Seems to be all about Kingsbury's ability to run an offense, the work he did with other QBs now in the NFL and how that CAN translate to building Rosen into a franchise QB.

It can't get any worse, well maybe it can.

 

We go from Arians blowing a gasket every other play to Wilks, who was a deer in the headlights for 16 straight games on EVERY play...no emotion or passion.

 

no place to go but up......7-9 will be like a superbowl trip.

Agree, It's head scratching. He gets a head coaching job based on being the coach when Mahomes was there? He's done nothing to warrant an NFL job.

Maybe, and that's a big maybe, he should be an offensive coordinator? This is the type of stuff that's get people questioning the NFL and an organization's agenda.
