Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.
LOL @ people with the "article is dumb" comments. There's nothing wrong with the article. If Tony wasn't mentioned in it nobody wold be complaining about the article itself, just discussing which ones belonged and which ones he missed.
Meh, if controlling the less dominant side of the ball means you don't deserve it, then Gruden doesn't deserve his either.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
Dungy upset about minorities not being hired, blaming the system.
This is what you are knocking when you throw out the eight one-and-done seasons and 0-8 record:- 176/362 (58.3 percent) – This includes over 30 dropped passes in what equates to half a regular season- 2,075 passing yards (6.87 YPA)- 10 TD passes, one TD run- 6 INT – Three deflected off his own receiver’s hands, two thrown vs. 2002 Jets when Colts trailed 34-0/41-0 in 4th quarter- 82.0 passer rating - This would rank 23rd all time in postseason history (min. 150 attempts).- Six games with rating of 82.0 or better (five over 88.3, which is roughly career rating).- Seven losses by a combined 26 points; one other loss by 41 points.- Led in final 5:00 of fourth quarter five times.- Led in final 0:40 of fourth quarter four times.- Three overtime losses.- Two games where Manning’s last possession resulted in a missed field goal by Mike Vanderjagt (2000 MIA, 2005 PIT).- 2002 at Jets: Manning set Vanderjagt up for 41-yard FG, trailing 7-0. The next time he took the field, it was 17-0 Jets.- A memorable play where Nick Harper could have returned Jerome Bettis’ fumble for game-winning TD, but was tackled by Ben Roethlisberger.- Billy Volek came off the bench for Philip Rivers to lead Chargers on fourth-quarter comeback win (2007).- The worst average starting field position for any road team in the playoffs in the last 30 years (2008 San Diego).These are not normal occurrences, and somehow the same quarterback keeps experiencing them, and becomes the easy target every year.
All of those coaches deserve those wins. They had a choice to tinker and screw up a good system, or just coach to the strengths of the "the other guy's team", and win it all.
