2019-2020 NFL Thread
« on: June 27, 2019, 09:52:10 PM »
didn't know where to put this so I just made this.

Read an incredible stat. Had to post it. In a live episode on July 29th 2016, one of the hosts on ESPN's awful First Take show- Max Kellerman- said on air that Tom Brady would fall off a cliff and be a bum in short order. Since that genius said that, Tom Brady has lead New England to a 35-9 regular season record, had an 89:21 TD to INT ratio, went to 3 straight Super Bowls, won 2 of said 3, one of which was the greatest comeback win in maybe sports history- and in the one Super Bowl he lost he set the NFL playoff record for passing yards in a game with 505 yards.

Holy shit. This Max Kellerman should probably keep Tom Brady's name out of his mouth completely.

I think ESPN et al. have tried to find outrageous shows and hosts to arouse attention.  Being wrong is not what's important.

I pay zero attention to their "experts".  What they say matters not anyway.

Sigh...when will teams learn to stop hiring Patriots assistants, I guess unless they bring Brady as a package deal

It seems the Jerry Springer mindset has gone mainstream and that's just sad.I agree ELA when will these teams learn

It’ll never work, because the team hiring the BB assistant doesn’t get to bring Bill & Tom with him to the new team.

If you say it'll never work, you must be assuming that BB only hires people who are so flawed that they don't even have the aptitude to be a successful head coach. Perhaps that he is such a micromanager that he surrounds himself with yes-men who execute what he wants but cannot be self-directed and with enough of a spine to actually lead. That BB is such an egomaniac that he can't surround himself with anyone that's a threat to his own job. 

You know, maybe these BB coaching tree failures are starting to make sense...

Or you could say the system is so well ingrained that it covers deficiencies to the point that his assistants don't necessarily learn when they make mistakes, because they aren't obvious; or they falsely learn that, while that maybe didn't go exactly according to plan, it still worked.

But overall, I agree, to get to the point of being an NFL assistant you have to have at least a certain coaching aptitude, that you'd figure at some point.  I think Bill O'Brien would have Penn State in better shape than they currently are had he remained in Happy Valley.
