Click above to read Lester's breakdown of former Cowboys RB coach Peete yesterday.

Cavanaugh is a former Super Bowl (backup) quarterback, for both Super Bowl XIX and Super Bowl XXV. Most recently, he's been the quarterbacks coach for the New York Jets, which is probably enough to cause some concern for people. Additionally, he's a former Bears coordinator!

Here's Cavanaugh's coaching career:

  • Pittsburgh Panthers (NCAA) 92-93 - chief recruiter and offensive coach
  • Arizona Cardinals - 94-95 - offensive coach
  • San Francisco 49ers - 96 - offensive coach
  • CHICAGO BEARS! - 97-98 - offensive coordinator
  • Baltimore Ravens - 99-04 - offensive coordinator
  • Pittsburgh Panthers (NCAA)05-08 - offensive coordinator
  • New York Jets - 09-12 Assistant Coach/Quarterbacks Coach

  • Those two seasons with Chicago were under Wanny, and they were back-to-back 4-12 seasons. Erik Kramer, Steve Stenstrom, Rick Mirer, and Moses Moreno were your quarterbacks, and it was unimpressive.
