All My Predictions Are Coming True.......Sort Of

A couple weeks ago, I predicted that Pettine would become the new HC of Cleveland due in part to the Seahawks making the Super Bowl. I assumed that the Browns fan base would become impatient and Cleveland would hire Pettine because he is a hell of a coach and they were not willing to wait until the end of the Super Bowl to officially announce Dan Quinn (Seahawks DC) as the new head coach. I believe that Quinn was their third favorite candidate behind Gase and McDaniels, who both dropped out of the running. When the 'Hawks won the NFC Championship, Quinn's potential status could not be fulfilled. It transpired into leaving the door open for Pettine. In another posting I predicted that Pepper Johnson would become the new LB coach and Henderson would be promoted to DC. I was right and wrong. Johnson has been hired by Marrone, but is officially the defensive line coach and Schwartz is the new DC!!! I thought I was onto something and I kind of was. Where I feel that I was getting the correct vibes from is how I think this team is making all the right calls in regards to their coaching staff. My predictions are a direct reflection of my desires as a Bills fan. I was hoping they would hire Johnson considering that he has done a wonderful job in NE developing players like Wilford, Spikes and Mayo. Also, it is always important to hire coaches from your division rivals; it switches the talent around. I was hoping they would promote Henderson because he has done a superfluous job at CB and DB. I think Byrd has more of an incentive to stay now that Henderson was retained. He was promoted but remained in his current position. Just as good. Marrone, Whaley, and Brandon have made this organization more aggressive in finding the right coaching talent and ones with a strong resume/reputation. I love the way they persuaded Schwartz out of his sabbatical and their acquisition of Pagac from Minnesota. Pagac coached some pretty solid LB's for the Vikings. Another note, the hiring of Hostler and Downing will almost surely assist Manuel in his development and it leaves Hackett to focus on what he will do best: run the offense. His offense ranked 19th last year which is the same as the 2012 Bills, and he did it with a shoddy offensive line and three QB's (two rookies and one completely practice squad-level talent. With his responsibilities reduced and given to proven coaches: 1. Hostler is a proven receiver’s coach who will bring his knowledge of a Super Bowl winning offense and 2. Downing, who pretty much molded Stafford into a statistical stud. EJ is not, but Manuel has a stronger leadership personality than Stafford, I think. Also, EJ appears to be clutch much more than Stafford. I love the way Marrone, Whaley, and Brandon have tackled this turnaround. They really appear to be more than qualified and driven to be tops in the league. Let us just hope all this equates into improved success on the field in the coming years. Go Bills!!!
