Ahhh.  The Tom Landry/ Bill Belichick Approach! 

Good Luck my Friend!

A sport coat with the sleeves cut off on top of a hoodie and wearing a fedora.

Knowing Dave, he just might be warm enough in that.

Remember when Garrard would always wear fedoras to his press conferences. Man he looked sharp!

Not to hijack the thread, but what do you think about Kessler taking over for Blake?

Regardless of what I wear, maybe if I go in with this on my shoulder I'm good to go:

At this point, you might as well go full Captain Morgan.

I'm sad about it, but I get it. This was the season where Blake had to be the Franchise guy. Just being a part of the Offense wasn't enough. He needed to show that he could make up for deficiencies in the offense and he didn't do that, so now we experiment. This season is toast anyway so why not see what you have in Kessler?

Don't get me wrong, no one on that team did Blake any favors and I don't like firing Hackett at all. I think it was a dumb move. But I get it.

Hackett was obviously the sacrificial lamb. I just think he never trusted Blake. When we should have passed, he would always call a run. Or when he could have called a read option run, he called for a run to Fournette. The Steelers game is a great example of that. If he calls a read option, instead of a run to Fournette, Blake walks to the first down and we win the game. Hopefully Malinovich will get the offense moving again.
