I know there are injuries to key positions in 2021 and I do not want to make this a drama post but I a think he may be on the hot seat where he will be asked to retire if the defense continues with its struggles. We can argue forever about who is calling the plays and how much control or lack of control that the coaches have but he has his work cut out for him in my opinion. I searched everywhere to try to determine how much say he has in the draft personnel, the week to week defensive plan against the team that week....the actual play calling....and it does look like he is more than a puppet but of course I dont know this 100%. When Coach Lebeau retired it was agreed that he would be the DC because I think Seattle was looking at him. Maybe like the same agreement Tomlin had in that he would inherit coach Lebeaus 3-4 scheme. Anyone agree or disagree? I like stability vs turnover but I think the defense regressed and metrics do not always capture this accurately in football yet.
