Just thinking out loud but the Jones boys were pretty sold on MM and pushed the old man to sign him rather than wait and do further interviews. That may be a good sign moving forward...not that I'd bet my house on it, but just maybe a different culture is brewing.And the thing is, what's he gonna say exactly, in the interview? He's gonna pump sunshine. Tell Jerruh what a fantastic roster he's built. The hay is in the barn. All that shit. He knows better. He wanted the fucking J-O-B so there's no way he lays it out straight. There will be roster changes but mostly only for economic reasons. And Mike may have some say on who comes in. But it won't be enough to fix 24 years of shit.
The more I think about it after seeing this playoff season, the more I am convinced we need a total rebuild job. Trade Dak and Zeke while they still have mythical value. Trade a couple of the o-linemen and most of the DL. Trade Cooper. Pile up draft picks and let McCarthy build the fucking thing the way HE wants.
We all know that's not gonna happen. This is why we know the NYG gonna be in the NFC title game before we ever are.
I agree that watching the championship games was depressing in a sense that it just reaffirms how far we truly are. We've got a ways to go but we know that. I believe this thing has to get blown up and the team we'll see 2 or 3 years from now will be completely different. But it has to start somewhere.
If anything, this year should be interesting, if not fun. What will MM bring to the table? Will Zeke, Coop and others tap out? Will Jimmy get into the RoH and will Jerry have to acknowledge his true contributions? I'd bet Jerry dreads the fact that he won't be able to sugar coat it any longer; he can't claim he negotiation the Walker trade, etc. Jimmy's in the HoF now now and I'd bet he's going to protect that legacy. And speaking of Jimmy, the first people he mentioned when he got the HoF nod were his assistant coaches and great players. Jerry mentions Jerry and minimizes every else's contributions. He's a narcissistic psychopath.
