I actually think the worst part of the NFL isn't the millionaires, it's the bottom of the roster guys. You don't get much depth in the NFL, and injuries always happen. So you end up signing guys off the street to fill holes, sometimes the week of the game. Can you imagine being in such a high pressure, high stakes job, and you are putting in a left guard who you just met and who was working at Piggly Wiggly last week?
True. But sometimes the guy you found off the street bagging groceries is a hall of fame level player: Kurt Warner or James Harrison. 

These guys you sign off the street are still pros, so I think coaches just expect them to be professionals and take their jobs/assignments seriously and hope for the best.

Michigan's pick up of transfer 6th year senior center Victor Oluwatimi from Virginia is a big plus given the graduation of Vastardis.

LOL, understatement much?

You return 4/5 of your OL, and replace the one you lost with a Rimington finalist.

I think the CFP blowout loss prevents it, but before the game, but after they added him, I thought there was a decent chance that UM was #1 in the preseason poll next year.

if he does leave, I would hope they go after an offensive minded coach who prioritizes throwing the football. I don't know where you find the "next" Ryan Day- but I'd try like hell to find someone as close to that as possible. 

JJ McCarthy is talented af. He's got to be the guy in 2022 and they need to transition the entire offense towards the passing game. They'll have really good skill talent in 2022. Ronnie Bell will be back healthy. Sounds like Erick All is coming back at TE. Andrel Anthony is going to be a stud imo. Roman Wilson & Cornelius Johnson are pretty good receivers. They brought in a pair of top100-ish WR recruits in Tyler Morris and Darrius Clemons. Donovan Edwards is a match-up nightmare in the pass game. 

A really creative coach who runs a modern passing offense would turn that group into a monster.

they lost way too much on defense.

Aidan Hutchinson, David Ojabo, Dax Hill, Chris Hinton, and Josh Ross off to the NFL Draft. Brad Hawkins graduated. That's 6 starters on defense. And rumors are Vincent Gray might declare for the NFL draft. That'd be 7 starters.

Not really sure what Gattis is. Don't think he'd be offered the job anyway if Harbaugh left for the NFL.

They need to find a coach that will develop JJ McCarthy and air the shit out of the football.

Thanks for the one great year coach. See ya later. 

I’ve been ready to move on for awhile now. I don’t think he’ll be as successful in the NFL as he was almost a decade ago. It’s even more of a passing league now, and he just has zero clue when it comes to the passing game.

It’s odd as f***k that a former QB struggles with the passing game and would rather run the ball 60 times a game.
