NFL 2012 Divisional Week Thread

I find that easier to believe than the idea that a Tuiasosopo masterminded anything but a fumbled snap.

I can only hope this turns into a South Park episode.

Who needs one? The Te'o topic is like a Super Bowl/BCS thread adorned with puppies and unicorns!

Seahawk's DC Gus Bradley is going to be the next head-coach of the Jags.

BWAHAHAHA thank you Jags!

The worst member of the Seahawks coaching staff has finally left. I give Bradley 2 years maximum as a head coach. Bradley did such a poor job with such a talented defense but when I really do think about things, he did do a good job when we had a lousy defense. So I guess if your goal is to have a serviceable defense when you're bad, he's not a bad choice. But if you have a good defense, he will drag it down like the boat anchor he is. For examples as to what I'm talking about, see the defensive schemes he calls in the final 4 minutes of every close Seahawks game this year. As long as the other team had the ball to end the game, the Seahawks lost. The Jags just hired the guy who was 100% responsible for that final Falcons drive that won the game. Matt Ryan didn't have to make a single tough throw for that drive to work, that is how bad Bradley is.

Head coach is a much different job than coordinator. None of the above suggests a bad head coach any more so than a good job of coordinating suggests a good one (hence why so many successful coordinators fail miserably as head coaches).

Head coach is, above all else, a management position.

One thing about Bradley is that he was a coach in ascent, someone who landed at coordinator because that was the next step up the ladder. He wasn't a long-time coordinator.

If coordinating the defense that gave up the fewest points all season is a bad coordinator, though, then I hope he hires some of his bad coordinating buddies.

Everything you said is true, but doesn't discount what I said about him being bad at using good talent and calls horrible plays in crunch time. I mainly think of how he was inherited by Coach Carroll and how horrible Bradley was in 2009. I'm glad he is gone.

Sadly, I still don't think this is rock bottom for Ryan Leaf. Hard to imagine this guy was debated as being an equal to Peyton Manning at one point in time.
