    If true, what is the plan on offense? Flores can't keep firing the OC at the end of every season. Your QB can never master the offensive system when it changes every year, along with the rest of the offense having to learn too.

    Gailey felt like a 2 year solution at most anyway, having come out of retirement, but does Flores have any idea what he wants from the offfense? Any idea of who could work with a young QB to develop them?

    I like a LOT of what Flores has done, but this is a red flag to me.

    So, Chan Gailey doesn't get any love for the 10-6?

    Exactly the opposite for me. I was afraid he wouldn't have the balls to fire Gailey (assuming the reports are true). Him doing this sends the message that the only thing that matters is performance, both for players and coaches. Love it.

    Now have to hope this really happens.

    I would give him some credit, but he worked better with Fitz than Tua, and if we're going to make the mistake of keeping Tua, I'd rather see someone come in who can get the most out of a game manager.

    Well that's encouraging still, even if it has been retracted now. Hopefully it still comes to fruition. I like that Flores won't settle for mediocre within his staff. I always felt like bringing him here was more for Fitzpatrick than it was Tua; or at the very least a very short term hiring. I hope this does still result in Gailey being gone; nobody was really thrilled with bringing this dinosaur back from retirement anyways. We should move on from him simply based on the performance of our offense. Limited weapons aside, what we saw from his play calling and game planning was nothing to be happy with IMO.

    It was nice seeing Brian Daboll on the sidelines yesterday having a good day. He was also our scape-goat a few years back.

    No, that wasn't my point. I'm fine with getting rid of those that underperform; my issue is that YOU CANNOT keep rotating through an new offensive system every year. Find your guy and stick with him for 3-4 years (if successful he might be offered a head coaching job but that means he was a success).

    Once the QB and the rest of the offense understand what they are trying to do on any given play, they can stop thinking so much and just focus on playing hard. That takes time, often the second season in an offense before it all clicks.

    So, Flores not being able to settle on an OC is, in fact, a failure on his part. Let's hope he gets it right for 2021 and beyond.
