The Cowboys and Redskins went the experience route in their head coaching searches. The Giants and Panthers apparently are comfortable with newcomers to the job. Dallas got a Super Bowl winner in Mike McCarthy. Washington went with Ron Rivera. He twice won NFL Coach of the Year honors in Carolina and also took the Panthers to a Super Bowl. Replacing Rivera will be Matt Rhule. He was a worthy college coach at Temple and Baylor but with minimal time in the pros. And the Giants are on the verge of going with Joe Judge. He's New England's receiving and special teams maven.
