    If Gilbride leaves it will hurt Eli's play.

    A major part of Eli's success is his familiarity with Gilbride's system. The two of them are on the same page. If he leaves after this season I know many of you will be happy, but don't expect someone new to just come in and have similar or better results right away.

    Eli IS the system. I have full faith that even if Gilbride took a HC job or retires or whatever, that Eli and the new OC will continue using something similar.

    Why learn something new when Eli knows the entire thing in and out?

    Hufnagel was the OC for a couple of years before Gilbride...

    You're right. My mistake. Fixed.

    I have a feeling people will sorely miss KG if he leaves after this year.

    While Eli might be the system, it's KG's plays that he's audibling to.

    On the plus side, we probably won't have to endure that inside screen anymore.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    At this point, anyone feel like Eli has taken it to the level where he'll almost be Peyton like and essentially HE will be the offensive coordinator and whoever they bring in will be a figurehead?

    i would miss Gilbride but if he leaves the system wont suffer providing they keep the same system.




    Eli imo knows the system better than Gilbride.

    I've always liked KG and have always defended him, but Eli is an elite QB now and he obviously knows what he's doing and how to direct the offense. I don't want KG to leave, but I'm hesitant to say that we would necessarily take a big hit because of it. But they work well together and I'm into fixing what already works.

    That's the issue ... new OC = new system.

Basically I think he can run it on his own like Peyton has done for years.
