It's the only thing he has left to do to become the most hated person of all time. I'd get a real kick out of watching him lose repeatedly to the Saints...sure, why not?

One of the posts summed it up best. He's a great college coach, but, college and the NFL are two very different jobs.

Re: Saban to Falcons?

He and a lot of other college coaches have been dumb enough to believe that they can put together a team in the NFL, like they can in college. You can't recruit players in the NFL. And NFL players have lots of money, and many of them tend to believe that makes them superior to their coaches. So you can't boss players around. There is a huge sense of entitlement with today's "professionals".

That's why Saban quit after two years with the Dolphins. So why anyone would believe that he'd go back there is beyond me. I know he's arrogant, and people believe he needs to have some type of success in the NFL to fulfill his egotistical dreams, but I believe the truth is that he's got too much pride to risk embarrassing himself again.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Saban to Falcons?

Players hated him with a passion from what I read and the feeling was mutual. A lot of people forget he was not that great at LSU or Bama early on. It took a while to build that machine which is what he is good at; recruiting. He built the best NFL farm team. Commend him for recruiting but that's about it. He is a marginal sub standard coach which he proved in Miami.

He started out just fine at LSU, going 8-4 in his first season after the team was 4-7 the year before. He can coach and recruit. But recruiting is his strength. He isn't a genius as a coach. And he thought that being the head coach and GM in Miami would give him the same type of control that he had in college. He was very wrong. He got to make decisions, but the free agent market is a level playing field where EVERYONE pays for players, and everyone has a cap to limit them.

You can't give an NFL player a Dodge Charger to lure him in. If he wants one, he's already got one.

With an even playing field he is substandard to ok like most coaches. Could never have success in the NFL because he is too lazy to put in the work like Belechick. As he stated himself, worst years of his life working for Belechick because Belechick puts way more preparation into coaching and wins with mid to lower grade players for the most part.
