glad to have him calling plays but he might need to stay on the sidelines.

It's a tough tough call.

One side tells me that the booth is the best for him.
Even he has said that he can see everything much better from there.
Linebacker positioning, running lanes etc....

The other side says that a head coach needs to be on the sideline yelling at refs and his players.

We all know CW isn't the greatest motivator, so maybe it's better to have him upstairs, as long as we are winning games.
Let Corwin do all the rah-rah crap on the sidelines because he is much much better at it.

Besides, being a HC is more than just being there on Saturdays, its the 6 days leading up to the game that matter too.

If we beat U$C this year, he can call the game from a blimp as far as I am concerned, hell he can text in the play calls.
