He wouldn’t even have to interview! 

 

Commish even said, "don't worry about to Rooney rule, you are just that special, Greggo!"

2003- I dont really blame Greggo or any Coach that was under post free agency R. Wilson.

2008- Regime change

2011- The guy won them a SB

2013-

Im not gonna put the time in to do it.

 

He is arrogant and high minded, but never been fired due to his D.

 

BTW He had 3 top 10 Defenses in Washington.  I would say he was fired by Buffalo and thats about it.  Dismissed and fired are two different words in the employment world

 

He pretty much got fired because he is a polarizing personality. He has some some serious issues and he is very difficult to work with. He might be a good defensive coach on paper, but his personality is pretty much locker room cancer

That's odd... I guess I must have tripped and fallen into the "punchable face" thread.

Like every single season. He has a new job for a new team every single year.

Maybe hes a HC killer but he seems to lose his job when there is a change in HC most of the time.

I could see that.  I know he has been fired but Ive always liked him as a DC Ive never heard anything about what youre saying from anyone I would put stock into.  The NO firing was completely a political move.  He did a good job as IHC in Clev.  He had 3 Top 10 Ds in Wash.  So There may be something to what youre saying.

Just like "Character" and "High-Motor" players beat out talent and skills?

I wish it were true, but I'm pretty sure strategy wins out MOST of the time.

His contract is terminated. That means he's fired. New coaches could easily keep him around.

He's been on hard knocks a bunch and everyone has seen first hand what a crappy person he is. Plus the fact that he got caught in the bounty gate scandal. Plus all the ridiculous things he says all the time. He's just a buffoon, and his defenses haven't been that good over the past couple years. Very aggressive but they give up a lot yards and big plays.

Cant be culture.   Listen to WGR they will tell you repeatedly that culture doesnt mean anything in sports.

That’s because shmeremy Shite and Mike Slopp are the smartest men alive when it comes to sports.

Bounty Gate-What all teams did for a long time.  Football is a violent sport and used to be even more violent.  You are correct though.  What he did wrong was get caught.

He also said Buffalo would have the greatest defense in their history, when Ralph hired him. So I don't buy anything that pours out of that hole in his face.

Talent craps on culture after chewing on strategy

 

Pats have culture and talent.

He falls into that good coordinator that will never be a good head coach category.  He also seems to be a pretty terrible human being.

 

This.  He seems to have figured out that he should hone what he did best, which is being a DC, and he's been very successful at it.  Like many successful people in many endeavors, he's not a particularly a decent person.

In one single post, the good bot caused all the Schopp disciples' heads to explode.

Exactly. I don't care about 4.3 40's, rocket arms, recovery speed, or even technique. You give me a team full of gritsters with a touch of moxie and we're going to the Promised Land. No doubt in my mind.

Sure.  They tried that experiment with Levy as GM. It doesn't work.

Talent and (execution of) strategy will trump culture. GM Levy had culture, Jauron tried culture and both with terrible results. As in business, so with sports you absolutely need to set a strategy and have the horses to execute it.

Pats have strategy (read: coaching) and add talent that fits that plan. The culture just comes by with all the winning.
