I went over to Revenge of the Birds to see what they thought about Kenny. Needless to say Cartman was not a fan but they did provide some good info. Please stop over and ask more questions if you can, I just did this in about 2 seconds (TWSS).
He would be a good coach if..
He's a good coach
you have a QB that is set in stone,in other words don’t let him pick one,coach one or even speak to one

but not too good at developing quarterbacks. If you have ones other than Fitzpatrick, my advice would be to not allow him to train them (let the QB coach do it). Also mismanages the situation of the QB. But he does know offense.

My take on Whiz
1.His game day management is damn good. He makes good use of his timeouts, is smart enough to run a “fire” play as you call it, and also he has a good feel for when to challenge a play and when not to so a timeout isn’t needlessly wasted.
2.QB evaluation and development, his stubbornness in general, unwilling to change his O philosophy to fit personnel and loyal to a fault with coaches that underwhelm as coaches.
3.Leadership and discipline and offensively he does scheme well for the most part.
4. I think he could be a damn good hire for the Bills. With Fitzpatrick in place I would say yes. Ken can coach that’s for sure but he needs a QB already in place. His O philosophy would seem to fit your players.
5. QB’s aren’t his specialty – HA
6. Tough guy

Whiz is a very disciplined coach. His players gave it their all under his term until everything fell apart for him this season and they rebelled. But before that he could get blood from a stone. The 1st 4 games this season are a testament to that- the defense and offense were better prepared than our opposition, and that’s why we won (it surely wasn’t the offense, which was the bottom of the league). Once the crap hit the fan, Whiz lost it this season like we’ve never seen before.
Since this was his first HC job, it’s hard to say how much of the successes and failures of this team were really on him.
IMHO- his offensive philosophy does not really work without the “perfect” pieces in it. From what we all know, nothing worked here without Warner, and Warner had the ability and allowance to change plays and run the offense as he wanted. Without Warner, nothing has worked. We went though a lot of QBs who were TERRIBLE in this system, and I would include ALL our current QBs in that. I think Kolb, Skelton, and maybe even Lindley could be great in the right system- and this wasn’t it. But that’s this biz, and we may never know how true that is.

Agree with all comments..would add
He seemed to be more into Personelle than coaching the last 3 years. After the Super Bowl run his head got too big. If the firing has humbled him and he sticks to coaching, he will be a damn good HC for you. If he still thinks he’s Bill Billicheck, then you will see what we saw the last 3 years. The one thing that would scare me the most is his resistance to change, any change.

As long as you keep him away from personnel decisions, he is a good coach.

I will amend the above - as long as you keep him away from personnel decisons regarding qb, olin and rb, he is a good coach
He seems to be doing pretty well picking D talent, but on the other side of the ball, SHEEEZ!
