Don't know how legit the guy is

He’s legit, he has a lot of sources. Chris Russell been a beat reporter for a decade in DC.

This is really getting embarrassing. Snyder has to be the most irresponsible owner in all of sports. The guy truly is a dumb ***.

He is sourcing Chris Russell, who is essentially one of the top media personalities who try to hold the club accountable and aren't "yes" men.  

It would not surprise if me Tomsula wants out- his well respected as one of the best defensive line coaches, and with the rumor that Torrian Gray (current DB coach) was fired, then not, it seems that they are interviewing candidates for jobs and then going to fire the coach.  Just like how Snyder fired Lafemina when they found out he planned to quit.  

Callahan was hand-picked by Gruden, who got him to leave Dallas to come to coach with him.  I could easily see him rejoining the other Gruden in Oakland, or getting any of the numerous other OL jobs on the market.  

It's a shame, because we do have high quality assistants, but Jay Gruden has hired a bunch of "yes" men on defense and appears to be letting them run the show, and aside from a great hire in McVay, Jay himself continues to run the show on offense to terrible results.

Bingo. @turtle28 do you remember the story that they were telling recently as to why the Pats no longer wanted to do scrimmages with us during preseason? Like when the national anthem was playing all the Pats players lined up and our players just kinda stood in place. And how the Pats players would run after practice conditioning drills and other drills that were formed by the players themselves (not mandated by coaches). THAT is the culture we need to have. And the reason why the Pats no longer will consider having scrimmages with us is because they perceive us as sloppy. And they don't want to be around sloppiness.

Also the positional captains on the Patriots are the ones fining and disciplining the other players if they show up late to meetings, aren’t engaged in them, etc

Chris Lingebach is the writer/blogger for 106.7 the fan and has been for like a decade. He’s blue shorts that they make fun of on air! Lol 😂

Yup. The players themselves have film sessions and they fine each other for things like missing blocks, etc...

Tomsula leaving will stunt our D-lines growth. To me he is the least expendable.

I think they should give him a defensive coordinator/assistant HC job. Callahan can go, I agree with Craig Hoffman that his training methods for the OL could be contributing to them getting injured often. Also, he’s the run game coordinator and our run game hasn’t been what it was last decade or when the Shanahans and Forester were here  from 2010-2013 and in 2014 when Forester was working under Gruden in Gruden first year our running game was better that year than it’s been since Callahan took it over.

Silver Lining, that means the team will take a major step back next year or we’ll get a lot of young coaching talent in here and someone will emerge as a HC candidate should Gruden not get us back to the playoffs.

Like  Kevin O’Connell should be promoted to offensive coordinator and playcaller, then we can hire another newly/young retired QB to be the QB coach.

On defense, Fire Manusky & make Tomsula the Ast HC/Defensive Coordinator. Let Tomsula fill out his defensive coaching staff. Let him hire a young defensive mind to coach the DL & he focuses mostly on that too, and he mentors the young DL coach.

Hire a young defensive backs coach to work with the young DBs.

Hire a young outside linebackers coach - like we had for a few years with Brian Baker - to just work with the young OLBs on passcrushing moves. 

Keep Ovaliti but he mostly works with ILBs next year.
