GumboBC picks best B&G Post of the Week


If anyone has been a member of B&G for any length of time, it's no big secret that WhoDat and myself often disagree about a lot of things. But there are those rare occasions where we see eye to eye.

I asked a question to all the members about what they thought the BIGGEST weakness on the team was. Coaching was the majority answer.

I then asked the following question and I thought WhoDat gave a very good, well thoughtout answer.

So here's GumboBC's post of the week:

What is the biggest weakness of our coaching staff? What area of coaching is our biggest liability?


Quoted by WhoDat:
I have a hard time providing ONE answer. I'm split between what I believe are two equally large and equally important problems.

1. Consistency: Our coaching staff doesn't seem to provide itself, players, fans, etc. with any clear, direct, or enduring strategy or direction for this team. Haslett wants to be a players' coach one year and a hard-a$$ the next. First we're big, then we're fast... we develop this spread attack in '02 to become conservative in '03. You all know the story.

2. Flexibility/Creativity: Our staff seems to have a really hard time evolving or modifying its game plan when it is necessary. They never seem to be able to make adjustments in game or even in season. By the time they finally figure out what we generally all know to be the problem already, it's too late. That ability to change to deal with what works and what doesn't, how to deal with the opponent, etc. is extremely important in the NFL.


I know at first these two ideas seem contradictory. First I'm saying that they are inconsistent, then I say that they can't change enough. Let me explain...

I think that the coaching staff needs to have a clear long-term direction that it is going in. This is how teams develop their "character" - the fiery tough defensively minded Ravens or Bucs, the explosive Rams or Colts, the underachievers who fight through all types of adversity in Tennessee or New England. That said, coaches have to be flexible in shorter bursts and adjust to win. I don't think that happens. I think the coaches make wholesale changes each offseason in their philosophy creating no longer term continuity, and then fail to adjust much if at all in-season. After the season fails, they come back and make wholesale changes again.

No rub there, WhoDat. I think what you had to say had a lot of truth to it. In fact, I agree with you 100%. And it was vere well said and you did a great job of explaing it.

You\'re one of those folks who have a great knowledge of the game of fooball. And though I disagree with you sometimes, I do take what you have to say seriously.

Most of the time that is moonshine boi!!

Nah, not yet. This is the nicer, kinder, more gentle me. I now see the good in all of mankind. Now longer do I let things upset me.

I think we should all strive to be more kinder, gentler souls. We should all get in touch with our inner-being.

I\'m extending the \"olive branch\" to all the people I might have upset in the past.

Reach for the \"olive branch\" BlackandBlue. Make the world a better place. Show your more gentle side. Be kind to me BlackandBlue.

NOW !~! Get that SHET outta here. Ain\'t no pole polishing going on here , CHUMP !! :P

Wasn\'t there some disturbingly sexual thread last season as well? Have we hit the quota for this year then?

Damn Gumbo, this is not how we gain converts to the sunshine side. You have to smack them over the head and drag them over kicking and screaming, but not after this year of course.

Sunshine all the way baby!!!
