    Plenty of older guys in the NFL, & I am sure Jerry & Jason are trying to stay away from the guys looking to build their resume for a Head Coaching job...

    If they do, they're ridiculous. I'd love to have Ware pin his ears back and go after the QB on every down.

    4-3 allows the DL to go all out and rush the passer forget that contain bs . That's why you have 3 awesome LBs who can fly to the football ( in 4-3)

    I forgot about him.

    So maybe 50 away yet. That's a ton of sacks.

    Kevin Greene with 160.0, which is 3rd all time. LT is 2nd as a LB with 132.5. Ware is 5th among LBs and has 111.0. Rickey Jackson and Derrick Thomas are 3rd and 4th.

    I think it's funny, too. People think the game has passed these guys by, but there's no evidence it has. Sometimes a little wisdom and know-how should be treasured.

    I don't get it either. I guess people have so little regard for Demarcus Ware as a football player that they don't think he can make a transition that Kevin Greene, Charles Haley, Chris Doleman and untold numbers of guys who couldn't hold DeMarcus Ware's jock have made before.

    All this age stuff is really getting on my nerves.

    First it was Brent is too old to be commenting on a beautiful female, now this guy is too old to be DC. Now I'm nowhere near that age, but some people are 73 when they are in their 40s.

    Age isn't chronological, its mental. If he can't mentally handle it, he shouldn't get the job, but chronological age has nothing to do with it. There are plenty of younger guys we could hire that aren't mentally capable of doing the job.

    I already said I don't think he's necessarily too old. :rolleyes:

    But not everyone is Lebeau. Those years made a big difference to Parcells. I know people personally who changed a lot in that time.

    I still can't believe he racked up 111 in 8 years.

    It's gotta be next to impossible to do something like that. It's easy to say JJ Watt has the potential but you never know these days.

    Say what again? How do you figure? He didn't play end he didn't play his hand on the ground. He played OLB and he didn't read the run option the right way which most teams had an issue with. Obviously when he goes to end he will have different responsiblities. I wouldn't call Ware having a bad game where the other team designed to attack him due to his injury a "problem" or an "issue" I would say the other team did a damn good job at exploting the "injury". The guy is a smart football player and I would bet that this over pursing thing is a myth based off those 2 games. He has always been very good as a run stopper. Maybe not as good as Spencer, but than again they have different responsibilities in the 3-4.

    If he was really "Smart" he would keep coaching in Alabama. That's the best job in football :)

    So, what do they do "best"?

    I assume, "man-to-man" coverage? I hope they are up in the wr's face vs 10 yds back.

    If the media reports are to be believed, Kiffin wants back in the NFL, he's told KC no, and now he's assuring JJ and JG that he'll let Carr/Claiborne do what they do best. Sounds like someone who wants this job.

    At this point, I'll be surprised if this DOESN'T happen.
