Don't think thats right. Chico was interviewing for head coaching jobs the bye week before the Super Bowl if memory serves me.

I believe you can during a bye week, such as that. The Denver OC can interview this week as well as any Atlanta coaches as those teams are on bye this week. Washington isn't on bye this week, so Kyle would be off limits right now.

Except for Green Bay's OC.

On the topic of Kyle Shanahan, his dad has explicitly said he won't be allowed to talk to anyone until the Redskins are done.

I don't blame him... If I were a coach, I wouldn't want my coordinators and such talking to other teams and taking their focus off what will soon be their biggest game of the season. It's not like there is a huge need for them to start recruiting ASAP. FA and the draft are both months away, a few weeks won't kill them.

Agreed. I'd be fine with McCoy (Broncos) or Clements (Green Bay)

Amrstrong (Atlanta) already met with the Bears

What can hurt is that top choices for assistants could be gone if the Skins make a deep run. As other coaches are hired, they are going to pick off the top assistant choices.

Should just make it no coaches can be interviewed or hired until after the Super Bowl, for all teams.

But you can't do that. Teams that fire Head Coaches tend to not be in the playoffs, which means the scramble for new Head Coaches starts immediately. That would punish those HC candidates who happen to be on playoff teams, especially those who go to the Superbowl. Teams may not be willing to wait that long to name a replacement and all the openings could fill up. The way they do it now is best: Interview during playoff bye weeks as much as possible. It's the fairest to everyone involved.

EDIT: Sorry misread your initial post. Still, if ALL teams had to wait till Early February, then those teams miss the chance to have their new Head Coaches participate in reviewing all of the College All-Star games with their GMs, something teams that retain their HCs can do. It's a large group of teams to makes 6 weeks behind in their seasons.

Right, the senior bowl is like 2 weeks after the Super Bowl. Some teams wouldn't even have a head coach by then. How does the GM start scouting when he doesn't know what the head coach will want to run?

Yeah, I don't see the big deal. It's not like the college game where coaches bolt from their programs for better opportunities while their team's preparing for a bowl game, after all.

It's a trade-off for playoff coaches. Sometimes they might get screwed out of a job this year. but often, the team's success this year will increase their value for years to come and will likely lead to a job eventually.

Carimi apparently was playing on one leg all season. He never recovered from the knee injury he sustained in training camp. Apparently the Bears still believe he can be a good player. Sounds to me like they won't be desperate to draft a tackle in the first round.

If Emery ignores the OL (Tackles being biggest issue on OL) again ,, He should be terminated and escorted out of Halas Hall

Emery walked through the whole situation last year that led to not upgrading the tackles. What part of that did you not buy?

He didn't ignore the tackles last year, they signed Johnathan Scott who played 6 games and didn't give up a sack. A left tackle is a hard thing to find, you can't get a good one just because you want one. Left tackles that can come in and play right away aren't usually in the draft by pick 20, so hopefully they take a run at Jake Long but who knows if they can afford him.

I would look at Carimi as the last reserve OL on the roster and nothing more. He can't stay healthy. He just might not be cut out for the NFL grind, even if he does have talent.

Agreed, I would hope they wouldn't go in to next year counting on him. Scott looks like he can handle the position if Carimi indeed can't stay healthy. Would be nice to take a MLB in round 1 (Ogletree), maybe a C/G in round 2, then a TE that can catch passes in round 4, then grab another lineman in the 5th round.
