I have come around to the idea of Gase as HC, I support him and genuinely believe he can succeed here. However, I did like other candidates better at the time, Monken chiefly but also Mike Rhule. Recent developments have lead to further inconsitentcies of ownership and the process used in hiring a HC. The reason given for passing on Rhule was that they wanted to assemble his staff for him limiting his power as HC to directly coaching, and when he refused the offer was withdrawn. Yet, Gase was able to assemble his staff and was given say on the Gregg Williams hiring, and now he has been granted the position of GM two weeks into May. But we pass on Rhule who it would seem was their first choice because he wanted his own staff?.. The Job that the Johnson's have been doing for years just seems like they're just sorta wingin it in there, like there's no one in the room that has a clue or a voice. I feel like its just getting worse as there are less long tenured FO guys. My God they brought in the talking head Charlie Casserly to advise them on the Mac hire. That's like asking a used car salesman about the stock market because he's wearing a sports jacket.
