I was pulling for the guy but he seems to miss things that should not be missed. He's an idiot and should be fired.
First Sign That He's An Idiot:
Last season he thought that he somehow would outsmart Peyton Manning by filling the field with DBs..which the Colts prompty ran all over and had the game out of hand by the end of the first quarter.
Second Sign That He's An Idiot:
last Season allows the Miracle In The Meadowlands Part 2 by simply refusing to use any sort of rotation to get some players a rest. We're talking about a scheme that was all about relentless pursuit on the most mobile QB in the history of the game. Guys are not machines..they get tired. He left players in that should have been out and we lose in embarassing fashion and watch our playoff hopes go down the tubes.
Third Sign That He's An Idiot:
INSISTS on rushing three men on third and long despite the fact that it doesn't work. When it has...."Worked" it would have worked better with a 4th rusher. His defense has no philosophy in two years straight.
Once is happenstance, Twice is a coincidence, Three times a trend.
Plays a gimmick 4-2-5 defense that is proven to be ineffective with the current roster. Refuses to try something else.
Plays Zone coverage despite man coverage being the player's strength and despite the players being visably unimpressed with the scheme. Conversely does play man when matchups are not favorable.
Continues to play Deon Grant despite his best play of the year being a fake injury on national television
Continues to Play Justin Tuck despite Justin Tuck being completely ineffective.
Continues to leave rookie DBs on superstar deep threats
Fails to get Kiwi enough Reps at D end
Fails to get rookie linebackers ready to play. Allows a marginal linebacker to come in off his couch 3/4s of the way through the season and show all of them up.
Fails to understand that Aaron Ross cannot cover. Puts Ross in bump and Run coverage on third down...about 4 inches away from an epic fail.
Made defensive players wear wristbands
