I know it's only week one and many takes, including some of mine, will turn out to be laughably wrong but who, in this day and age, would hire a DC to be HC?

Fangio, Patricia, Flores, McDermott, Vrabel, i know there are plenty of offensive minded failures but when was the last time a defensive minded HC hire succeeded?

Mike Tomlin?

And yes i'm aware of Bill Belichick but why would anyone hire a DC to be their new HC in today's NFL?

Ima put this here as to why anyone hires a McVay assistant as coach.

So the overriding opinion of many seahawk fans is that facing Zac Taylor allowed Pete to try things to game plan for McVay.

As if playing Zac is a mini practice to facing McVay.

They even went so far as to say it’s obvious Dalton was listening in the headset and couldn’t read snap changes after it shut off.

And Tomlin was a WR in HS and College (Go Tribe!!) and cut his teeth in coaching as a WR coach

It goes beyond whether a defensive minded HC can succeed or not. Steve Keim said it out loud when explaining the Kingsbury hire in AZ. An offensive minded HC who calls the plays is the only guy on your staff who can't be hired away by another team. It's an extension of the Sean McVay effect. How many offensive assistants have the Rams already seen hired away by other teams? But it doesn't affect the relationship between play-caller and QB.

Absolutely.

I've thought for a long time that you want your HC to be a top notch coordinator (offense or defense), it's one less thing you have to get right but now, more than ever, i think he needs to be your OC.

Look at whats going on in Atlanta, 3 different OCs in 4 years. If you have a good one, you're gonna lose him. I'd rather go through that on defense than offense...
