Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory
I hope a lot of not-former head coaches get chances. I'm sick of the same guys getting regurgitated around the league.
Chuck Pagano/Bruce Arians was a nice change of pace this past season.
I'd say the same about Jim Caldwell, but the man was a figurehead, and as a Colts fan, I knew that from the day he was hired. The fact that he took that team to the Super Bowl all while standing on the sidelines with that blank look on his face just told me he didn't know what he was doing. Peyton Manning liked him, but being liked by the players isn't a necessarily a recipe for success.
Arians' name is already being thrown out there as a replacement for some fired coaches.
Depending on how much of Indy's success this year was him and how much was him executing Pagano's plan will play out I suppose.
