I would have been excited if Thorpe was named Special Teams Co-ordinator, but as Defensive Co-ordinator, lets face it, we won`t really know until mid-season. I had high hopes in Reinebold, but now will remain skeptical with Thorpe until he proves himself.
He is obviously not in Chris Jones
or Rich Stublers class as yet. But there was really no one else out there that was an obvious choice. Greg Marshall`s defenses always seemed to fold in the big games, and potential newbies like Steinhauer and Washington would also have to prove themselves.
s hoping that Trestman gets it right this time. We dont want Johnny starting any Fire Trestman threads.
In all fairness to Trestman, he was somewhat handicapped and limited last year by Tibesar`s late departure in mid -Jan. He might even have wanted Thorpe at the time, but could have been denied permission.
