    If Strahan didn't get his TV gigs, i wouldn't have been opposed to him being our D-line coach. I still wouldn't be if said TV gigs go sideways.

    Why is it so shocking that they would reach out for advice to a HOF DE?

    I don't think its a problem really, i think the problem most fans have with this is....Leave the man alone! he is retired and like someone said earlier, why would you need to motivate a young million dollar rich player? He had 16 sacks last year and you would think a hungry player like JPP should look to match that or shoot to break his personal record. Why would you need someone to motivate you?

    It isn't about motivation (necessarily), it's about how to still get production while fighting through double and triple teams.

    Who said that Strahan was being brought in to "motivate" JPP?

    Here is a suggestion why dont you send all our lbers to LT to get some advice.

    And send our corners to seek Mark Collins, Phillipi Sparks etc advice.
    I am impressed at the many ingenious ways you find to knock the coaching staff.

    I think Fewell deserves some criticism, but in his defense, there were some major pieces to the 2011 championship that simply didn't show up in 2012.

    JPP, Tuck, and Osi were nowhere near their performance in 2011.
    Webster regressed (hopefully it is a one year problem, he also got burned on some sensational catches where his coverage was there).
    KP was injured much of the year.
    T2 was knocked out for the season.
    Marvin Austin never showed up this year.
    Canty was hurt much of the year.
    Keith Rivers didn't have the impact that Reese was hoping for when he signed him.
    Boley faded a bit this season.

    Given all that, it's hard to lay it all on Fewell......however, I'll criticize him for not blitzing more when it was clear the 4 man rush wasn't as effective this season. He didn't rotate his DL as much as he should have.

    Fewell deserves credit for 2011, and criticism for 2012.....hopefully he'll be his own toughest critic, and get stuff turned around in 2013.....but it might need some new faces, too.
