I agree, but if I'm not mistaken Gary Brackett is signed through 2009.

His coverage ability is lacking but you want to put him at MIKE? Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

But I will say this, while Im an X and O junky and love the schematics of the game, I think from a coaching standpoint, more important than the scheme itself is player utilization and adjustments. Thats what great coaches do.

Even so; when great coaches like Parcells and Belichick don't have the personnel to actually execute their schemes, the defense struggles. The Patriots of '05, for example, disproved the media's perception that the Patriots could 'plug in' anyone they wanted and have success. Though great coaches do get the most out of the hand they are dealt, to win on a consistent basis, you need to get some good hands as well.

Oh of course. I was just pointing out that its actually more important for a coach to have great player utilization and adjustments compared to being an X and O guru.

I heard this one guy on the radio, I can't remember who it is, but he said something thats so true.

"Ive never seen a play designed to NOT work". And its true. Theyre all designed to work. As big of an X and O guy that I am, I'll cede that point.

Its all about adjusting to your personnell and designing schemes that fit their strengths, ie player utilization. The scheme itself can be somewhat overrated at times.

Of course, you need the "groceries" to cook dinner. Thats why I also give GM/HC guys more credit, because not only do they coach, but they get the groceries too. Guys like BP, Holmgren, Reid, Shannahan...those guys are the elite, they are great coaches who also build the team.
