(And for the record, like Rack said, I don't remember nearly the complaining about Payton that some claim. I think we all realized Parcells has his thumb on both the offense and the defense when he was HC.)
Two, does anyone else not remember nearly the excuses for Wade Phillips that Garrett is getting? With Wade, we had penalties and couldn't run the ball because he was just an idiot dufus who didn't know how to run a team. With Jason, we have those things because the HC here is powerless to Jerry's influence.
[View Full Quote]Three, on Sean Payton, most of you underestimate the respect and admiration Jerry has for him. And the same is true of Holmgren. This isn't some Chan Gailey noob who Jerry can or even wants to push around. That's why it's critical we make a move when these two special cases are available.
I agree but I only think that it's 1 special case and that's Payton. I mean Holmgren will be 65 years old by the start of next season and imo you'll be getting BP #2 as far as being through. It's not often you get a SB winning coach in his prime and not coming off of being fired for a bad record.
