And since Gundy found that gem, I guess Gundy chose a good staff?

He found a good DC yes. Can’t say I’m convinced with the rest of the staff.

If I was Gundy I would call the DC from Tulsa U. and tell him to make sure he remains available after next season in case Knowles again goes shopping. Gundy is so used to assistant coaches leaving after becoming successful that I don’t think he cares that much if someone bolts.

The reality is, Knowles is a good coach, but the defense will have a setback next year. I think the single biggest contributing factor to their success this year was how much experience they had. They are losing a lot of experience next year.

Are line backers will be hit the hardest. The depth wouldn’t be there
