    Granted, the team was a hot mess before he took the job, but he still should have been able to do better.

    I, however, do not take his HC results too much in consideration when evaluating him as a DC. There's plenty of guys that are good coordinators yet poor head coaches.

    And if Spags had replaced Coughlin, as many here wished, and we went 10 - 38 in three years, we'd be cheering?

    I just don't get it. Anytime something goes wrong, fans look to the past. Passing game stalling? Bring back Manningham. Running game stalling? Bring back Jacobs.
    The team doesn't share the same philosophy.

    Good point, so his next job was DC at NEW ORLEANS where they ranked 32nd. An established DC, not a noob.

    Sometimes it takes longer than 3 years. We will see how well Fisher will do with coaching the Rams.

    True enough, we are a fickle bunch. We won a Super Bowl with Spags and we won a Super Bowl with Fewell. Fewell's still here.

    I'd say it's both.

    Obviously you must have talent, but you also need good coaching. Athleticism, size, vision, brains, and heart vary from player to player and it's up to the coach to get the most out of the each player and meld them into a team.

    He sucks as a HC, under Spags they won 3 division games in 3 years, under Fisher they went 4-1-1..

    RF you aren't grasping he had far worse players at St. Louis than the Giants, and far worse players in NO than the Giants have. Are you really comparing the players of the Rams to the Giants? Come on now... relax, nobody's going to take your Fewell away lol .

    TC took the Jaguars from scratch and went to the AFC Championship game in year 2. THAT is a good coach.
