Thread: Bring Spags back!!!!!

  1. #161
    Spags will go to KC with Andy Reid as a position coach. Were not getting rid of Fewell. Pipe dreams are only worth discussing when there is more than 0% chance of it happening.

    The 2007 Giant Defense wasnt even that good until the playoffs. The 2008 Defense was good but it got worn down from lack of depth. Osi got hurt before the season guys started getting banged up and they didnt have the bodies to make up for it

    Schematically, I've got no problems with PF's defense. The execution by the players on the other hand...

    He didn't work with him but he looked at the film and knows what was going on defensively.
    You're missing my point. I'm saying that Payton isn't firing him based on any kind of experience on having worked with Spags. He's fired him just based on the poor results of this season. It's like a new GM coming to a team and cleaning house. There's nothing personal about it.

    He fired him because the defense was the worst in NFL history and he was the DC.

    That would do it most of the time

    Here's a question. Spags was with the Eagles under Jimmy Johnson, they still need a DC, will they pick him up?

    It's not like a new GM coming in and cleaning house at all because Payton actually hired Spags. He may not have physically worked with him, but I'm sure that Payton studied the coach's tape for every single game, and spoke to everyone on the team with knowledge of Spags' performance, before making the decision to fire the guy he hired only one year earlier.

    I highly doubt that Payton would rely solely upon the defensive stats to fire a guy he hired just a year earlier.

    He really has sunk rather quickly.
