With each season new dreams start in the NFL. Several franchises are still trying to identify the right path to become protagonists and some others have to overcome the departures of coaches who left a legacy in the institutions. In total, 10 new head coaches will seek to take their new team to the highest levels of the League.
Perhaps the least confusing picture is that of Todd Bowles with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bowles already had one opportunity as head coach with the New York Jets and it didn’t end well. After commanding the Bucs’ defense and following the departure of Bruce Arians, Todd was chosen to take the reins of the team.
In the Raiders, Josh McDaniels will begin a new stage after commanding the Patriots’ attack for several years. The former offensive coordinator already came close to taking on such a challenge, although he regretted it with Indianapolis. Now he would have the opportunity to lead a talented team, but he is still looking for a way to be the protagonist again.
Following the departure of Sean Payton in New Orleans, the Saints have chosen Dennis Allen as their new head coach. While the organization’s winning culture may embrace the newcomer, the team has already signaled that after Drew Brees’ departure there’s a lot more work to be done than just selecting a roster manager.
The Broncos try to find the sports project that will make them stand out in the most difficult division in the NFL. Nathaniel Hackett will be in charge of leading the renewal in Denver and Russell Wilson looks like a good tool to start building a new path for an institution used to being a protagonist.
Mike McDaniel, Kevin O’Connell and Brian Daboll arrive in Miami, Minnesota and New York, respectively, with the task of turning the project of these institutions around. The Vikings came close to being an NL star a couple of seasons ago, but the Dolphins and Giants are trying to find another path to success.
Perhaps the most difficult paths are for Doug Pederson, Matt Eberflus and Lovie Smith. The first, with more experience, arrives in Jacksonville so as not to miss out on Trevor Lawrence, while the other two do so with the Bears and Texans, respectively, where they have not yet defined a leader within the field that gives meaning to the sports project. .
