You callin AD a chicken???Staley is young. Look how long Saleh had to wait. Saleh is closing in on the Jets job supposedly after a few good years in San Francisco.
Staley has been great and has the entire defense playing well. However some GMs may say- He has AD and Jalen. Plus the DLine is loaded ( I give a ton of credit to Henderson). He has a loaded secondary too. It’s not like he made chicken soup out of chicken shit.
Guys, he's already had interviews and has more lined up.Today could not have helped his resume.
Exactly, look at the 2016 'Skins. Needed a win to make playoffs and the offense crapped the bed. 3 turnovers, only 10 points. The OC for the Skins made out ok, landed himself a sweet HC job.....If owners judged a candidate solely by a disappointing finish, no one would ever get that HC job. Their interest is based in what he did the whole year, not just what happened in the last game.
Can’t argue with you here, good post. But to play devils advocate here we can also say that Staley’s body of work as a defensive coordinator is only one year on paper that ended in quite a disaster. Some teams might be unwilling to jump the gun and hire him based on the fact that he only has the one year under his belt. This is why I think guys like Saleh tend to stick around for a few years - to show consistency and that Staley didn’t just inherit a talent rich defensive roster that underperformed under Wade. Plus there’s also the shift to wanting offensive minded head coaches. Look at which teams are still in the playoffs and what side of the ball their HC specializes in.Guys, he's already had interviews and has more lined up.

I would also hate to lose Staley but I am also totally confident that there will be a lot of totally qualified candidates wanting to work for Sean McVay and the Rams!!!Id like to keep Staley another year atleast but if we do lose him im confident in McVay to find another sharp mind to replace him.
If the Daboll rumors are true, less worries about Staley becoming a Tenant.Rat bastard Chargers bringing Staley in for 2nd interview with them, not a good sign for us. Thankfully there is still some that haven't had a chance to interview once. Though does smell of , "we want this guy, but will interview the others for due diligence."
I agree with you, with one year under his belt he doesn't have much to show for in terms of consistency. Yes he had a very successful year as our DC this year but it's not like he inherited a bottom of the barrel defensive roster. We have a TON of talent across the board on defense. I'm sure some teams would like to see if he can consistently reproduce that success, at least for another year. But what do I know, I'm not a member of an NFL front office so I could be completely off the mark.I pray the packers game is goign to make other teams shy from STaley.. but mostly i think he doesn't have a long enough track record yet.
I'm feeling like he will be back.
