Coaching makes a big difference, Jerry.
Even with the team we have I believe we could be 2 or 3 games better if we had people that knew what they were doing.
The current defense is not better than the 2003 defense. If you cannot grasp that then that just speaks further of your acumen.
As great as Carr, Claiborne, Spencer and Ware are, they are the only people on this defense.
Compare that to prime Roy Williams, Darren Woodson, prime Terrence Newman, Dat Ngyuen, Dexter Coakley, Greg Ellis, LaRoi Glover and the one year that Willie Blade played well.
The offensive line had Allen, Adams, Gurode and a roided up Matt Lehr. That allowed them to run a ball control offense and stout defense.
This current team cannot control the ball like that team could. Not even close and the coverage over the middle of the field was elite as opposed to what we have no which is some of the worst I have ever seen.
Sure coaching makes a difference but you can only do so much with Peprah Frampton, Poppinga, Moore, Sims, Conner, etc. Parcells had to coverup for Edwards. Ryan has to deal with half of his starters being out.
