Wilson is your QB and Wilson has his 'team' and your rookie HC has to handle this. Hackett couldn't do it and I think you are far better off getting a HC who has had experience and is able to put his foot down over Wilson's antics. As long as Penner and Paton are comitted to keeping Wilson you have a problem for a rookie HC - because by all accounts Wilson will try and run roughshod over your rookie. The first priority for any HC candidate is not 'can you fix Wilson?' - but should be - 'can you deal with and sort out this utter sh*tshow that comes with Wilson on the roster and how are you going to put your foot down and force him to do what is necessary?' - otherwise you are setting your new HC up for failure. You need a strong personality - Payton would do it - Harbaugh would do it - I think Dan Quinn would do it - I don't think Reich would be able to do it and that is why I would rule him out - and I don't think a rookie could handle it which is why I don't want another rookie HC. The alternative is to cut bait with Wilson - eat the $107m dead cap money - tank the season (which will happen anyway) - hope your good players like PS2 and Jeudy won't walk when their rookie contracts are up, and then go on a rebuild. The problem with this is that you have to make sure you hit on the right rookie HC and commit to them for 5 years - otherwise the team will be set back another decade. If you are keeping Wilson for at least another season then you need a very strong character (and not a tinpot dictator like Flores or any other BB clone). I can't see a rookie HC being able to deal with the combination of a primadonna QB and a CEO who doesn't know anything about football. The more I think about it, the more I’m locked in on it needing to be Harbaugh. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
