Many of the brightest NFL minds were not all that good as players. Playing at a high level means nothing as far as analyzing the game.
That’s what I thought. I was suspect it was just talking points to try and discredit an opinion they disagreed with. Thanks again K

You think playing football at a high level is for dummies who can't analyze the game? Actually, it's the opposite. You not only have to be in tip top shape, you also have to be intellectually smart to understand what is happening. There are many things you simply can't learn in a classroom. Experiencing it and being able to overcome live in a game repeatedly season after season is the best experience.

Yes, it is the best, just not the only way. Reich hardly played in the NFL. Gruden never did.

There are many "dummies" playing in the NFL at all times. Being smart about playing football and being smart about coaching are entirely different matters. It's not the same thing, not even close.

Go reread what you wrote.
What. About the Homer part? Are you denying you’re a Homer for an individual player which I didn’t make a direct reference .

And if so is that driving you buying into the hype of this team by our dysfunctional ownership?

I personally think you are too knowledgeable a poster to use the homer/hater designations. It immediately throws you into a category of bad poster.

Next our amazing member I’m assuming he’s a former NFL player as he’s discounting or discrediting everyone’s else opinion , this apparently will discredit every fan in this forum.

I guess he’s right and the rest of us are all wrong. Nothing to be alarmed about here. Lol

Please AC, tell us all about you football career.

I understand and you’re right. But sometimes you have to roll your sleeves up and roll around the mud with them . I try to take the high road as much as I can.

I guess I feel like someone has to take them on. I have more time than I used too:)

Reich had playing experience. He's coached up good QBs and been a very good O-Coordinator thanks to his playing experience.

Gruden took over what Dungy built.

Nah, I'm like you. I learned by watching TV. Never played the sport. I'm exactly like you. I know it all through tv.

There you go. You start with the personal attacks and name calling. Then you complain when it gets thrown right back at you.

I played in school up to high school. Attended every game and some practices . And was around collegiate and professional players in my early years by my uncle and dads side.

Attending practices and then training camps provided a close up look not to mention traveling with the team on road trips . I think I had a much closer encounter than most fans. And usually I’d never feel I’m any more qualified to commentate on football.
