ThisSo Freddie is a scapegoat and the coaching door has to stop revolving. Just swallow your pride and admit you were wrong when you were banging the drum a few weeks ago to keep him. But I’ll agree with you that Dorsey and Haslams are responsible for hiring him but regardless Freddie had a job to do and failed miserably. He and his staff take their medicine on this one.
If he has to be King of All Football for whatever job he takes, I guess I don't want him here.Sounds like Riverboat Ron got Bruce Allen fired at the Redskins as a condition of employment. It's a start....
No, no .... that was not my point ... Freddie dug his own grave ... my point was everybody seems to think that just because Freddie is gone all the problems are solved ... I believe there are more problems than just FreddieScapegoat, huh ?
There is some truth to what you post, in greater or lesser degrees for each point. Whoop-de-doo, joe. He obviously couldn't overcome these problems or any of his own. Very little besides the penalties got any better at all through the season, and some got worse.
Waffle House Fred was obviously both a source of many difficulties and a failure at heading off many other difficulties. Gameday and season-long difficulties. EVERY head coach was once a first-time head coach, and there is an inevitable "sink or swim" aspect to every one of them. They ALL are "in over their heads" on day one, and they have to swim. Freddie sunk. It takes an idiot to blame others for Freddie's personal failings as an NFL Head Coach.
Get on the Freddie Excuse Train if you want. You won't have me there if you do.
Literally NO ONE said this^No, no .... that was not my point ... Freddie dug his own grave ... my point was everybody seems to think that just because Freddie is gone all the problems are solved ... I believe there are more problems than just Freddie
By the way ... I heard your boy Hue Jackson on the radio today ... he was asked if Haslam was too hands on ... he said no ... but he did say that they were not aligned correctly ... too many people reporting directly to him ... it did not allow for a singular message ... I think he is right and I think this needs to be fixed ... I would like to see it like this:
owner ... pays for things and picks team president
team president ... in charge of all off field components ... and hires GM & coach
GM ... in charge of getting players & helps hire coach & scouting
coach ... in charge of selecting 53 man roster
I believe this misalignment since Jimmy has taken over is one of the main problems with this organization
You are trolling but a glance at the schedule reveals, outside of Baltimore, a bunch of average or worse teams. No excuse to not have success against that schedule.I have them at 12.
Depending on whom they draft and pick as coach that easily can reach 13-14.
I think 15-16 wins is a little out of reach at this point though.
I would imagine that every 2+ year OC in the league that has experienced a measure of success has a "detailed plan for staffing". They all network, and few aspire to stop at the OC level. There is nothing the least bit compelling in your statement there^, to me.From a Brier SI article:
If you don’t believe McDaniels is ready for a head coaching job, look no further than the detailed plan he has for staffing. Redskins offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell is on his plan, along with Colts secondary coach Jonathan Gannon, who coached in Indianapolis the last two years because he was on McDaniels’s Ohio-heavy Colts staff list. To get the Cleveland native Gannon this time around, McDaniels would, presumably, have to make him defensive coordinator.
I think McDaniels would take either the Cleveland job or the Carolina job, if things are structured right.
You sure have a habit of getting caught up in a bunch of noise. You're a feather in the wind sometimes. R-E-L-A-X.......Maybe Haslam hopes to recreate the administrative mess he has at Pilot Fluid J. It worked wonders in keeping him from getting indicted. Have as many people in the chain to provide plenty of scapegoats when things invariably go to $h!+.
Oh, and Jarvis gave an interview where he said the team needs leadership. I wonder if he has a mirror. Bunch of finger pointing dimwits.
Eh,Landry should be happy, he’s been able to fool people into believing he’s a pro bowl caliber wideout while padding stats on bad teams that have to throw 25 5 yd passes late in games.
