NFL tickets bring plenty of things to football fans. Lots of drama, some pain in some cases, and for one lucky team Super Bowl glory. They also bring regime changes and new names. The 2013 NFL season is no different as eight teams will have new leadership this year. Who are these guys?
Arizona Cardinals – Bruce Arians is a familiar name to most NFL fans. He stepped in a guided the Indianapolis Colts while Chuck Pagano was out being treated for cancer. His pedigree includes a pair of Super Bowl rings with Pittsburgh and helped Peyton Manning get established with the Colts. His coaching skills were obvious in Indianapolis and he should help get the Arizona Cardinals back into playoff contention if management will listen.
Cleveland Browns – Rob Chudzinski was the Offensive Coordinator for the Panthers and he takes his first head coaching job with the Browns. He’s got some roots in Cleveland, having served as Offensive Coordinator a few years back. This is kind of a surprise pick. Chudzinski is respected but he’s never been seen as a top flight candidate for an NFL Head Coaching position.
Jacksonville Jaguars – Gus Bradley had a major role in building the defense of the Seattle Seahawks. He now takes his considerable experience to Jacksonville where the Jaguars desperately need some good news. Can a defensive minded coach win in the offensive minded NFL?
Kansas City Chiefs – Andy Reid had only one major failure in Philly, not winning a Super Bowl. He usually fielded good strong teams and he does have the respect of other coaches around the NFL. Reid at the very least should bring a sense of order and purpose to the Chiefs. getting to the playoffs would be a nice boost too.Eric Drouant
