- tone down the condescension, its a forum, you know, for opinions. 2) research?, what is this, a thesis for a masters or the NY Times.
I was referring to coaches doing well in the pro’s after flying the BB nest . Its a different animal to the college game where recruiting kids is as important as anything. Also you are dealing with guys on the way there as opposed to the egos of a guy earning millions of $ a year…not comparable IMO). So that takes care of Ferentz.
Saban’s record in the NFL…2 years of mediocrity having picked Dante Culpepper over Drew Brees…good call!
Jim Schwartz did not exactly set the world alight in Detroit. One playoff appearance which he lost. 4 years of terrible (with a good QB and Megatron at his disposal. His next gig (which should come this off season will define him).
I’ll add a few more examples which back my point up.
Mangini - total failure
Romeo Crenell - one momentary piece of average and a load of failure.
McDaniels first foray - failure.
Bill O’Brien - considering the talent on Def, and him a offensive guy, so far, a failure in my book (chance with Watson to turn it around esp now he will be given total control), was certainly on the hot seat this year.
You wanna give college as examples (although I generally wouldn’t compare), we can throw in charlie Weiss…
Anyway, long and short of it, no BB protegee has done anything of note as a HC in the NFL…and hey, i didn’t even have to research it! Point stands.
