Someone mentioned Tedford, what offense did he run?

    Where do you get that Reggie wants the ZBS? He didnt pick Knapp. He only signed Brisiel, drafted Bergstrom, and cut Barksdale because Allen had already chosen Knapp. I thought the rumor was that McKenzie was never that fond of Knapp. I'm not even sold on Allen desiring to use the ZBS. I cant tell you why Allen chose Knapp but I dont think it was because Allen was insisting on a zone running game. Allen is a defensive coach. He's coached on teams that have used traditional power blocking. I dont believe he's sold on using ZBS and I definately dont believe McKenzie is.

    Andy Reid is the simple answer

    Reid uses a version of the WCO that is focused on speed. He isnt afraid to take chances. He throws deep a lot. He loves to send the RBs on pass routes. He runs a lot of draws. He could utilize the players we have and succeed, unlike Knapp.

    Reid is going to be the new DisCharger HC (or another teams HC). Reid isn't coming back to be an OC.....

    I live near E-Girl country. They filed tampering charges against SD last year. Reid would have been SD HC if he was fired last year....

    No Quarterback with pick 5. Especially the noodle arm Bridgewater or Carr V2.0.......

    he actually ran both but they moved to more zone later in his career at Cal.
    Thanks for the link. that was informative. The principles of Zone seem simple. I wish we could execute it successfully.

    Knapp was the OC in Atlanta, while Allen was there in 2004-2005 as a DB coach.

    I think Allen needs more input with the offense. Its all good and well to rest your defense, but you need to score to even sniff a win. In recent weeks, I've noticed the defense experimenting with things, 2 down lineman, with Houston standing as an edge rusher. Nothing offensively, give Pryor 50% of the snaps in Carolina, we know Palmer and Leinart.

    Al Saunders...

    He has experience coaching most of these guys, he's smart and he will get the most out of our O.

    We need someone that fits the skill level and not someone who fits a certain style that DA likes. DA can't afford to wait 2-3 years to turnover the roster and for stuff to work.

    Honestly his choice really will be telling of if he will survive. We all knew knapp was a disaster waiting to happen. The other coordinators haven't panned out either. If he brings in a retread might as well fire him too so we don't waste another season

    Go back to Stanford and see if Pep Hamilton wants to make the jump. I'd agree that we should go the college route....like with Tarver, you get a guy who's been a coordinator at a different level, brings new ideas. We're not getting Payton, Gruden for sure, we've seen what a retread does in Knapp, lets pick the brain of someone from the collegiate level.

    I agree but from what I hear he doesn't want the responsibility.

    This... He's had the opportunity to leave to be an OC and opted to stay. I don't think he has much interest in calling plays anymore. I think the last time he was calling plays was back in 2008.

    Name the last successful Patriot coordinator who's had success elsewhere? (O'Brien stepping down to the college ranks, I can give you that I suppose, but I was more or less talking about in the League)

    Also, you're absolutely crazy if you think O'Brien leaves State, period.

    He'll be looking at a payday as a head coach, not a coordinator lol.

    Maybe we can get some realistic names at some point...

    If he comes, expect a change at qb. Bc there ain't no way in holy hell Palmer can run his offense.
