    Default The Frontrunners Poll: Wilks - Shurmur

    I dont think any of us really know who the frontrunners are for the position. But the two names that keep coming up in the media are Shurmur and Wilks. I like both. Really this poll can be summed up as do you want an offensive mind or a defensive mind.

    Me personally I LOVE have Wilks talks Xs and Os. He seems to really command the room and demand respect. I am tired of Offensive Coaches calling plays. I want a Defensive mind that can give that part of the game over to an Offensive Coordinator.

    My pick is Wilks. What does the rest of the board say?

    Definitely Shurmur.

    Bombed as coach of the Browns but so has everyone else who has coached there. Great with QB's and not just top 5 guys (see Case Keenum, Bradford, Foles). I think he will be flexible and adapt to our offensive personnel and have faith he can help develop a long term QB here. My concern with Wilks would be who is he bringing as his OC?

    Shurmur is the safe bet but Wilks is the boom or bust pick (risk it no biscuit?)

    I feel like he has an "It" factor as HC. If youve ever heard him speak, he just immediately fills the room with an authoritative presence. But so did Mike Singletary and he flamed out. So there is no sure thing. Wilks might be Mike Tomlin, whos not necessarily a stellar coach, but he is a commander in chief. Which is what you want your HC to be.

    Here are some youtube videos where you can get a sense of what Zaz is saying about Wilks.

    Yep. Speaks very well.

    I dont know what it is. His cadence or tone. He just sounds like a guy in charge. To every question, he immediately has a deep, detailed answer.

    Yeah I doubt we would get any Rex Arians style garbage from Wilks about how he and other coaches are geniuses but the players just didn't execute.
