Alright credit where credit is due.

That, on paper, is a great hire.

Its also the type of hire that could get DA fired and replaced by Kubiak if he does well enough and may get hired by someone else next year.

So kudos to DA for doing it.

Why is it a great hire?

"Hiring Kubiak (if that’s the direction the Saints are leaning) may not be a slam dunk. Two different teams have let him call plays and they both chose to move on from him. He was jettisoned with the rest of the Vikings staff after Mike Zimmer was fired in Minnesota. When Hackett was dismissed in Denver, interim head coach Jerry Rosburg reassigned play calling duties from Kubiak and gave them to offensive coordinator Justin Outten. All three of them were let go once Sean Payton entered the building. If someone were being uncharitable, they’d suggest Kubiak would not have gotten this far if his father wasn’t an influential former head coach.

When he was calling plays for the Vikings in 2021, Kubiak’s offense ranked in the middle of the back in most areas: 14th in points scored, 12th in yards gained, 11th in passing yards and 9th in touchdown passes with the 17th-most rushing yards. Minnesota’s 25 points per game was a respectable scoring output. In 2022, though, the Broncos averaged 14.5 points per game before giving Kubiak the headset; he managed 16.8 points per game before they switched again. Denver scored 24 and 31 points in their final two games with Outten calling plays instead.

Which means the Saints have to ask themselves an important question: is it worth waiting on Kubiak (or Griese, if they’re looking at him instead)? They aren’t the only team trying to hire a new play caller. If there are other candidates they value highly, waiting another week and a half to sit down with one of the 49ers assistants again could be costly."

This means that DA is a good head coach and Carr is a good quarterback!

Not sure you’re the guy who should be getting after people to eat crow for being wrong, you know considering you run like a little bitch from every thread that highlights your stupidity

But hey congrats on finally getting something sort of right ?

so he was on a shitty Denver team coached by a shitty HC. seems to me that the Denver example may not be 100% on him - just saying.

MN under Zimmer was ok, but when the coach is gone and someone else comes in - not often the existing staff is kept. so not the best example either.

look, he may work out or he may not, but he sure as shite could not be as bad as we just came away from.

Better than what I expected. He's still working for Dennis Allen, and he still has Derek Carr. So I'll save making the playoff reservations until at least December.

They could have resurrected Bill Walsh back from the dead, hired him as OC, and some people here would argue that he knows nothing about offensive football and is a terrible hire.
