  • Are you satisfied with your FO and coaching staff?

    FO- Im a little unsure. Our GM McCloughan has only been GM for 1 full offseason (this is his 2nd). He was VP of Player Personnel for 06, 06, and 07 offseasons. Its unsure how much sway he had with the picks but i know he was (is) a big advocate of Alex Smith. But hes a son of a football scout, and hes worked under Ron Wolf too. Im not super high on him but i dont think hes terrible either.

    Coaching Staff- I love it. Singletary has won me over with his performance. Manusky is a solid D coordinator and our OC Raye has over 30 years of experience so i think it will be a nice coaching staff. A lot better than Nolan or Martz!

    Anyways, whats your take on the upper hierarchy of your team?

    A big fat no on both sides.

    Packers

    FO: I think TT is average at best. His drafting is pretty damn good, but he completely neglects free agency. He doesn't need to pull a Snyder and sign everyone. But consider the Packers are switching to a 3-4 signing a single free agent who fits the system would sure be nice. I feel like Packer fans, especially on this site give TT way too much leeway.

    Coaching: McCarthy is a great coach, until the 4th quarter. His biggest problem is that he is conservative. Now add in Rodgers being a conservative QB and that explains why the Packers couldn't win a game in the 4th quarter. But for the first three quarters of a game, I would take McCarthy over 90% of the coaches in the NFL.

    AJ Smith hes been pretty solid since hes taken over and there are some questionable things hes done too. But his Pros out weighs his cons for me. Norv ehh well hes done a pretty good job turning Philip Rivers into what he is today, but I want him gone next season. Rivera taking over Ted Cottrell's job was a glorious day.

    Speaking for Detroit fans I think it is safe to say NO. Ford has produced 1 playoff appearance since he owned the team and his list of FO hires reads like a list of total failures including Matt Millen who is likely to go down as the worst GM in NFL history. His replacement, Mayhew who learned his trade under Millen, has been promoted to GM with a resume that is more like a blank page with no substantial requirements met. He assured Ford he would make no substantial changes within the organization, an obviously sound decision if you want to remain the laughing stock of the NFL.
    For any of you who complain about your FO's, just remember, it can be worse as every Detroit fan for 50 years can attest.
    As for our coaching staff, nobody in the NFL can win if their GM doesn't provide them with a reasonable amount of talent and that is never going to occur as long as Ford is the one hiring the GM. 0-16 was just the final reward for Ford's total incompetence and it may not be the last time Detroit goes without a win.

    I HATE Mike Brown

    So now you know how I feel about the Front Office, now onto the coaching staff....

    I'm content with Marvin. A lot of the problems he has encountered is from the mistakes of Mike Brown. He's not much with the media but that's not a big deal in the long run.

    Our offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski is lousy. Same offense every year, crappy play calling and just general suckiness. Anytime our offense succeeds it's generally due to the talent, not the coaching. With Carson healthy the offense consists of medium pass - long pass - long pass - punt. He would completely abandon the run when it was doing well in a tied game. He should be canned. Yes, we had the worst offense last year but I was even complaining about him when the offense was one of the best units.

    Mike Zimmer was AWESOME his first season. Everything we had been asking for from our DC was given by Zimmer. They were aggressive, could actually tackle for once. Finished 12th overall despite being on the field all game because our offense was so awful.

    Absolutely. The only person I have any problem with is Arians and after his play-calling in the playoffs I support keeping him on. He does do a great job with Roethlisberger.

    Absolutely for New England, aside from not really having an offensive coordinator and an average defensive coordinator. Belichick's track record speaks for itself but it's going to be very hard to be the GM, head coach, and call plays on offense - assuming Bill O'Brien doesn't end up doing that.
    We thought it would be tough for Bill to call plays when Charlie left, too. I'm not so concerned about that, but Brady's health will make all the difference this year.

    Love the addition of Floyd Reese to take off some of the pressure on BB, too.

    Even the quick trade of Cassel/Vrabel seems to me like there was the intention of working a deal for Peppers. The jury is still out for me on this early FA season because it really seems like a lose/lose right now. The Cassel deal seemed too quick on the trigger, and even if Pep ends up in NE it will wreak havoc on the ability to sign Wilfork, Seymour & Mankins next year if Peppers gets a monster contract.

    Overall - In Bill We Trust. Until he proves otherwise the guy is, at the very least, a demi-god.

    NY Jets

    Rex I love thus far but it's early. Tannenbaum does a little more FA spending then I'd like but still seems to do his best to hold onto draft picks (especially high ones) and our younger players, so he's already. Plus he's magical with the cap.

    I'm basically just waiting for them to move.

    Actually, no I am not happy.

    The Colts are probably going to make the playoffs and lose 2nd round or AFC championship.

    We always seem to be one or two players away, then we lose a few guys, and then draft again only to be one or two players away.

    I think our cap has been mishandled with some players getting WAY too much money.

    I also think it was a bad decision to let the beneficiary of one of the greatest QB's of all time to become a HC. From QB coach of Manning to HC? Dude, Manning doesn't even need a QB coach. Now we are actually handing over the keys to this guy Caldwell?

    The Colts needed another defensive specialist and they blew it. They are going to blow it again this year, and I will be very surprised if Peyton ever gets another ring here in Indy.
