Of the 8 new head coaches hired this offseason, 7 of the 8 are offensive coaches. That percentage indicates teams would rather not hire defensive coaches.
You're not .... very good .... at math and calculating probabilities are you?
Nice attempt at spinning the point...
1. So Lovie Smith didn't get a job this year, after just getting fired somehow proves he won't get a job as a HC again? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Maybe Lovie Smith made it known he's sitting out a year, because he wants to go back to Dallas when Jason Garrett fails yet again. The contention was not that he was hot property this year. To summarize to make it a little easier for you to follow:
Your contention was that Lovie Smith is not going to be offered a job because he is a defensive-minded coach
, i.e. you rememebr your comment was originally made in respect to Rex Ryan not getting a HC job, because he is a 'defensive-minded' coach.
This brings me to point 2:
2. You claimed that defensive-minded coaches don't get jobs and that list of about 7 coaches seems to argue that your the one not very good at math and probabilities. Ironically, you 'cut' out that portion of the response, but it doesn't surprise me, because it makes you look like you don't know what your talking about. Gus Bradley had that Seattle defense playing pretty hard and is now a HC, which would necessitate that people do get HC jobs based upon the work they do as DCs.
Now, do you understand my 'math' and 'probability' qualifications?
