So, the Dr. Gill thread has gone off track. I'll take partial responsibility for that.
In some of the posts there has been back and forth disagreement as to which factor is more important: Coaching or Talent.
Some background from the other thread:
TrueChamp has made a comment like this (this is verbatim, so I can't be accused of altering his post): "Coaching is the most important apsect of all organized sports."
Wozzy added: "the loss of coaches overall has been the most major obstacle in the way of another Patriot Super Bowl victory."
On the other hand, I've said: "The biggest obstacle in the way of the next championship has been insufficient talent on the field"
So, here's the Poll (thanks BDC for taking away the Poll Feature):
Which statement most accurately reflects your viewpoint?
1. Coaching is more important than Talent
Let's call this the Bear Bryant theory, of whom Bum Phillips said "Bryant can take his'n and beat your'n, and then he can turn around and take your'n and beat his'n."
2. Talent is more important than Coaching
Let's call this theory "It's the Jimmys and Joes, not the Xs and Os".
You must choose options 1 or 2 for your vote to be tallied.
