    Come-on mayne!

    Garrett: Wait, so you’re saying that you never watched film of potential recruits? You just watched romantic comedies?

    Nutt: I did. Because, you see, you’ve got to have a unique philosophy. Lot of teams watch game film. Nobody expected 27 Dresses. Caught ‘em by surprise. How you think I got ole Nick Brassell to score a touchdown on Alabama – ALABAMA!!!! – on our opening drive. Just before we took the field, I pulled Nicky aside, said, "It’s sad ‘cause she ain’t never got married, and that’s what she wants the most." Nick understood. Took the field. BOOM!! Touchdown.

    I guess P.T. Barnum was correct.

    I really hope this isnt true.

    I am curious to see if hue jackson has a spot. He would be a more qualified RB coach, a deserving hire and a guy who has worked in a similar offense under cameron in baltimore.

    he has been a head coach, rb coach, st coordinator, secondary coach and wr coach and offensive coordinator

    He has the experience they are looking for. he fits the surround garrett with good experienced coaches.

    and if callahan takes over as playcaller jackson is well versed in the west coast offense, if for some reason we swing that way.

    and frankly, hiring a guy who is not deserving in nutt over a guy who is deserving and happens to be african american just looks bad to me.

    Adding jackson as rb coach and tice as te coach would put a ton of experience on this staff. And a lot of them have worked with unconventional owners/head coaches so there wont be a culture shock here.

    We will have added kiffin, marinelli, jackson, tice. that is a ton of experience added to a staff.

    factor in eberflus and henderson are highly thought of as are jimmy robinson and wade wilson and this would be a good staff.

    not a big fan of adding tice, but he fits the mold, i would prefer sporano but watkins said he wont come here.

    I'm not pleased with our head coach, never thought he earned the position, but any coach or decision not made by him for our coaching staff is the wrong move. If he wants to remain OC then it's his call. He wants his brother in Staff his call. It feels to me that Jones is making these decisions and that is the wrong way to build a team. This symptomatic of what is wrong with this organization and it starts at the top.

    Hey, GUYS -------
    That was a comedy article, a SPOOF!!!! And a pretty good one.

    You won't ever find an actual interview transcript on anyone.

    If it's indeed a fake, let just say I'd be relieved knowing JG actually wasn't being abused and misused to that extent. It's definitely not any kind of interview one would consider to be given by anyone sober or seriously trying to be hired unless it were a ploy to get Garrett to leave. I would surely hope you're right on that, so I'll just assume I've been duped -- at least, I would HOPE as much.

    Nutt is the best available RB Coach.

    He has developed more RBs than anyone else.

    He wouldn't be a mole. Jerry knows what's going on all the time. He is there every step of the way and in regular communication with the staff.

    It's okay...if he's still not 100% sure that the article is a fake, he'll still be interested in that property.

    Good grief... :lmao2:

    And even to this point still only HOPING he'd been duped. As if the possibility that it could still be a real interview was on the table.

    Oh man. I guess I'm probably guilty of piling on at this point. I mean there could be a part of the world that's not exposed to parody or satire after all. People fall for ONION articles all the time. But at the same time, its now been clearly shown that it's a joke. Still not sure after all this.

    words fail me.
