Head Coach- Kevin Stefanski

Struggles will almost always be placed at the feet of the guy in charge at the top and that comes back on Kevin Stefanski. The questions about why changes aren’t made in-game or during the week will always come back to how Stefanski runs his team.

Though they have shown a lot of great things on offense despite a lack of proven wide receiver talent and a backup quarterback there is no way to spin a 2-5 record into a good thing.

Stefanski the play caller and offensive mind has been good yet again turning a less-than-stellar group of pass catchers (outside Amari Cooper and David Njoku) into one of the most efficient offenses in football. You can see guys open on just about every play and see defenses selling out to stop the run and yet the scheme of the rush attack still works.

On the other side is the growing concern of locker room issues capitalized in reports that there was a shouting match about leadership after Sunday’s game. People begin to wonder if players are held accountable for actions on and off the field. A lack of leadership to keep issues in-house and not air out in their weekly media availability.

Overall Stefanski is a good schematic coach and will be given the chance to show what he can do with a franchise quarterback and winning cures all. But if the noise in the locker room grows louder and Watson doesn’t look comfortable in the offense there might be questions about a fourth season, but Stefanski should be safe for another year.
