True. But they also may find the next McVay and change their team's fortunes overnight. You just never know in the NFL.I think Atlanta and Carolina are in a rebuild for 2 years. For comparison, the next few seasons will be like ‘14-‘16 for us.
As for Tampa, they’ve been rebuilding since Gruden left.
It gives Carolina a head start in its coaching search. In their assessment, they will likely be competing with a number of teams seeking coaches at the conclusion of the season, and an early start can be an advantage. IMO it would indicate a larger shake up, ie. Allen is not the answer, Cam is gone, etc.Makes little sense before the end of the season
