    BTW, for some reason the video wouldn't load for me so I took your transcript at face value. I'm certain it accurately reflects what was said.

    OHB,

    We are still a good team. I just hope went dont slide into the abyss.

    I see no need to slide into the abyss, with a guy named David Johnson coming back. And that's just one guy. I'm actually kind of excited to watch this whole thing play out.

    This is a very telling interview. The part about being

    He wants one of his coaches to get the HC job.
    He thinks Drew Stanton should be resigned as QOF.
    Wolfley laughs at first then goes loyal himself. (Watch the video)

    These days loyalty can be good and bad. My wife
    proved to me that our loyal cell phone salesman
    was charging us too much. She did her homework
    abd I did not. I was a too much of a buddy with the guy.

    Some of BA's assistants never came through
    I hope the next coach is careful with loyalty
    It makes them work hard for you but this
    can be a two edge sword with coaches and players.

    It's why I'm happy he's gone. I thank him but his time was up.

    Yeah it's like we're supposed to believe he's worthy just because "The Quarterback Whisperer" said so. Good grief.

    What he said was we need to bring in a young QB or a vet. Then he said the first thing he would do is resign Drew. IMO he didn't say it like he was our long term QB. It was as I said IMO more of we have no one bring him back to start with first.
