In response to Ytsejamer1's comment:
I like Mike's energy for the sport and the team, but he's getting to the point of being nothing but an apologist. I think coaching has a ton to do with it...guys have progressively been getting worse and worse.
BB defenses have been in decline for a long while and while it's admirable he wants to find hardworking kids and bring them up through the ranks...but he's doing a disservice to the team by putting them in those coaching positions. Boyer, Flores, and whoever else he scrapes up from division 4b schools are NOT going to coach any other way than what is directed. There's no way Boyer saw much talent during his tenure at the SDSM&T. How the heck is he going to coach guys effectively?
Some of the older coaches like Eric Mangini who didn't play much if at all...those guys teethed for a long, long time....toiling in obscurity. The Pats brain drain during their run of success in my opinion, rushed the need to bring guys like Flores in and up through the system quicker than we would have liked.
Free agent guys come in and their careers die...rookies come in and they get worse and then they're out of the league. Even a dog gets a warm piece of the sidewalk now and again...we've just whiffed at every turn. I think McCourty's good year was based on him playing they way he had played under Shiano and throughout his life up until that point. The coaching sunk in and he turned into a turd back there.
I'm sorry for the rant...it's coaching. When a guy like Mangini can get Hank Poteat, Earthwind Moreland, Randall Gay, and WR Troy Brown to play along with a championship level defense...it's a credit to him. I wish BB would bring him back. He's a smart coach (sucks as a head coach) and could really kick our guys in the backside.
i intimated the same thing on another thread. bb cannot handle even a completely competent coach on his staff, never mind one who sent him to the wolves.
bb aint a forgiving guy. and hsi pride is too big.
we're all fallible. includign bb.
hes proven time and again hes very fallble. so if anyone needs to learnt o forgive, it's bb
As BB would say "it is what it is"
