I have been thinking this way also. I stated so in a different thread, but my thoughts are --this is the best way to get the “change” everyone seemed to covet by firing McCarthy while still maintaining a semblance of stability. The likelihood of keeping Pettine is greater, Philbin is familiar with Rodgers and the rest of our roster, and the biggest changes would involve the offense which we all agree needs worked over anyhow. I also think a new OC is essential, and i’m going to add replacing Ron Zook to that list as well.
Edit… I guess it was this thread I made those comments in. I didn’t realize that earlier this morning.
