        Yeah I'm just not sure what this does. Maybe Colombo will have a better idea of how to get these guys working as a unit on the road. I've got my doubts. It may be a little different if we were bringing in a legit offensive line coach. But this is like firing Linehan and promoting Kellen Moore. Just feels a bit empty.

            Garrett clearly used the assistants as scapegoats after last season, I think this firing might be an indication that Garrett actually will be on the chopping block if we continue to flounder.

            As an aside, this isn't 1998, teams aren't strictly zone or gap blocking these days. It's definitely a spectrum as far as certain teams leaning one way or the other but every team in the league is utilizing both zone and gap runs, so I wouldn't worry about "switching schemes" or anything like that.

                The problem is can you use a position coach you just hired as a scapegoat? He sort of used our previous O-line coach as a scapegoat too. It's hard to scapegoat the guy who you just brought in to turn things around. Sort of brings your judgement into question.

                      I'm not even sure what a consultant does. So I'm not really that worried. This is on Colombo if he sinks or swims.

                        You see that consultant title tossed around all the time, offense, defense, ST, etc. Probably just sticks his nose in during meetings and points out something he thinks he sees on tape or something like that. I agree it's on Colombo.
