The guy went from being responsible for one position to being responsible for an entire organization. I'm sorry, but this seems like it has abject failure written all over it.

That’s kinda they way I feel about it. But who knows. Maybe the blind squirrel finds a nut.

He’s a qb coach. He’s never called plays in nfl. And when he did in college it wasn’t very impressive. 

I mean we hired a RBs coach that called plays for 8 games.

The guy has called plays for 5 games total in the NFL and one season in college.

So what, Freddie Kitchens never called plays until this year and showed great results. Give the man a chance

That was long time ago when he called plays, maybe he's improved. Doesn't matter cuz you don't hire young offensive coach and don't let him call plays, that's pointless

Report is he's interviewing Aubrey Pleasant to be his DC. That's a shame for us, most Rams fans thought he would be the eventual successor to Wade when/if he retired.

Well, he did for a short time in Miami.  But your point is taken.

He intends to install his system, obviously, and to make sure it's done his way he's going to call the plays.  I don't think that's particularly shocking or a predictor of success or failure.  It's not a stretch on a HC to call plays on offense, as we've seen around the league.  

In other words, if the Zac Taylor experiment fails, i don't think it will be because of that.

My opinion on this is that either you have what it takes to lead as a HC, or don't.  Obviously some amount of experience is required.  I'm a manager and have faith in my ability to lead people, but i'd be a failure as an NFL head coach because i don't understand football at the level these guys do.  But Zac knows football.  So what we're really talking about is his leadership ability.  Either he can lead people or he can't.  Another 2-3 years of moving up the ladder the traditional way wasn't going to make a big difference, IMO, in his ability to lead.

Three years is a long tome ago?  How young are you that makes three years a long time ago?  His year at the U of Cincy was also with his hands tied behind his back.  He was stuck with not only Tubberville, but he also inherited the "lack of talent" guys that Tubberville recruited.  That offense was bad, and it had very little to do with the offensive coordinator.

 

Plus he got a stint in Miami calling plays after the Dolphins fired Bill Lazor.  Guess who the outgoing OC is here?  So he already has a handle on the kind of mess he's cleaning up
