    Great for a new head coach to have veteran coaches with whom to bounce issues. It takes a strong man to accept that he's not the only smart man in the room.

    Was luke warm about Flores about 3 weeks ago. Jury is still out. But I'm digging the way this staff is shaping up. Lot of experience across the board. Lot of good people to bounce ideas off of in the meeting rooms. Hopefully they are great teachers as well. This may not translate into immediate success on the field but could lay a solid foundation for our football team.

    Well said! This is already a huge improvement over Gase. Gase would have never brought someone in that would challenge him.

    Getting some real experienced coaches to help him develop is something Gase would never do. This staff is really coming together.

    So a new coach hires a bad one to be bad. Cool

    Jim Caldwell has proven to be a very effective OC over the years, it just hasn’t translated into success as a HC (although he certainly hasn’t been a complete failure as a HC either).

    I honestly think its a really good hire.

    His coaching record is 112-62 I’d say that’s pretty darn good!! Plus I believe he took the colts to the super bowl one year too.

    Caldwell was a solid head coach, if Flores wanted him, fine. But... who the heck are all the other coaches? Who is Patrick Graham, our new DC, for example? Never heard of a single one of them.
