They go off of very similar info that the general public does. Bryce Young odds didn’t jump until he declined any additional interviews for him. Also, that is why you will start to see them pull the odds leading up to the draft.
Reminder, last year they had K. Thibodeaux as the odds favorite one week before the draft last year.
for the life of me I don’t get why Ryans went to Houston, I get it, it’s an NFL HC position…but he was sought after and more openings would have become available…the regime there is a dumpster fire…Millen may have been a better manager of men…
And that alone should be its own indictment. I can only say that Ryan is already used to having McNair write his checks. The NFL needs its doormats to perform as expected. You can’t have Alabama if you don’t have a Vanderbilt.
I try not to get too upset with guys on their first HC stint as 99/100 of them will take whatever job presents itself regardless of the odds. The money is big. The prestige is big. Their agent is in their ear telling them this may be their only shot. And coaches tend to have big egos to think they have the special sauce to make any situation work.
As for Houston he spent 6 years there as a player and I am sure that played a factor. Jack Easterby is also gone, and he was the biggest part of the problem in Houston. But I agree he is in a tough spot.
