Dude looks intense , I like that !!!
+10000 RS ...
He was in school too and hear he is coaching on the field too!!
He would be a great hire.. His intensity is needed at VR
Either that's an in game pic or he just spotted Kiffin eating corn on the cob.
I am really beginning to believe JJ still may or already has fired JG and Gruden is actually doing the hiring. Stay tune...something is up. Jerry has been too quiet with the media.
Let's bet cash on it.
Considering the TD returns we've allowed, I think it's pretty easy to see what they do ... wrong.
They are responsible for deciding which lanes each player should cover, both for blocking and covering kicks, and coaching them to stay in those lanes.
Just think about the places Garrett has been and worked.
Some of the coaches fired are also some of the ones who never worked with Garrett prior to coming to Dallas, I believe, or with Kiffin, who's making the hiring calls on defense.
Bisaccia would be a fantastic addition. He is intense and the players will absolutely love the guy.
Special Teams is equally important as offense and defense. Special Teams "splash" plays have a huge correlation to winning games.
More like, Jerry is keeping it quiet until everything cools down. He's banking that everyone will get excited about the changes on defense and we'll all forget about a new OC.
My bet; brother Garrett is the last coaching change on offense. Jerry will try to fix the O-Line and defense. He's giving JG one more year to prove he can do both.
I didn't say special teams wasn't important. I said I can find no proof of what a ST coach actually does. Other than yell at people when things go wrong, of course.
I can promise you no ST coach ever taught Devin Hester how to juke a guy out of his shoes or how to run faster.
I'm also half kidding. Half.
I love how people think that being a fan of a team makes a difference.
There is some truth to that. A lot of the top special-teams players are just that way because of their natural ability to play it.
But if you take the Hester example, it still takes blockers knowing who they've got to hit to give him a chance to do his stuff. It can't just be chaos. So the ST coach has a role in that success. The evidence is often how well the play is blocked because there are definitely times when a good returner overcomes poor blocking.
Same thing with the coverage. A good scheme is going to be set up to not just depend on defeating blocking, but to have players get to certain points to allow others to fill in and make the plays. It can be undone by the kicker putting the kickoff in the wrong spot. It can be undone by players not being disciplined to let the scheme develop or not understanding where to go if the blocking develops a certain way.
In a way, special teams has to be coordinated better than either of the other units because there's so much field to cover. Leave gaps in your scheme and there they go!
It got us Lovie Smith didn't it? Ooops:
When the rules changed about the wedge formations it appeared that Joe D didn't adapt to it very well.
We've consistently had poor starting field position in his tenure here and after the debacles we've had on ST under him I grew pretty tired of him as well.
Hoofbite posted the information I'm referring to about the blunders on ST.
Maybe they can finally protect the punter.
We should be so lucky...
