    Agreed. The last game was a great example. I mean what HC wouldn't give the order to double team Clayborn?? This was an average DE that was killing the QB...But very little effort was put forward to help Green. Its just a small example but even my wife, who is not a huge football fan, pointed that flaw out to me. It was piss poor, illogical coaching.

    These types of conversations do nothing for me.

    If you want him gone then I want to hear who you replace him with. I like Garrett but I was on board when Payton looked like he was becoming available a couple of years ago. This notion that he needs to be replaced at all costs is a nonstarter for me.

    He develops players on both sides of the ball and his teams play hard for him. I do agree that he is conservative to a fault and lacks innovation. Thing is that there are a lot worse situations. Phillips was an innovator for example.

    Right. Especially with Jerry.

    It’s easy to say we want another coach. That’s always an easy solution until we start naming who’d come here we’d want.

    I have never supported Garrett. His problems as an OC are only magnified now. He still has zero ability to adjust in game and is regularly abused by opposing coaches.

    Honestly...I can see Jerry making a run @ Meyers. I'm just not sure if he would make a good NFL coach though. He beats people by out recruiting them..but when he runs into a team that has as many athletes as he does....He's nothing special.:rolleyes:

    How about after next week? Feeling confident that things will look better?

    Just say so.

    Because telling a modern day NFL team story's about Bruce Springsteen is motivating...

    I’ve never been a Garrett supporter... He always gave me a sneaky vibe when Wade was coach, and I wasn’t there some rumblings from TO, Clayton and Williams about Garrett? He offers no edge as a HC. I don’t feel like he puts his players in a position to succeed. He wasted Ware, Romo, Witten. He’s on his way to ruining Dez,Dak,Zeke,Tyron, Martin, Fredbeard,Lee.

    This franchise, players and fans deserve better. Is it too much to ask for a HC that provides an edge? I remember we use to say BP was worth at least 2 wins a year because he provided an edge.

    Jon Gruden is classic example of TV analyst becoming a celeb. When he was coach he thought he could win with 4 Rob Johnson’s at QB. He ran the Bucs into the ground.

    He’s entertaining but basically Mike Holmgren when it comes to coaching. Game has caught up to him and he’s no longer unique.

    Garrett is as good an X’s and O’s guy knowledge wise as 80% of coaches. I said last week he is just more conservative than most fans would want.

    Right now McVay and Belicheck look like top tier guys scheme wise but really there’s no one else than is consistently at the top you can cite as being superior.

    Now did Garrett totally screw up as bad as any coach has yesterday by allowing one guy to have 6 sacks? Absolutely. But there’s virtually no coach out there that hasnt had the same issues.

    Payton ran the Saints into the ground the last few years before this year’s turnaround so far.

    Reid was run out of Philly.

    McDaniels flopped as HC.

    People were trying to run Tomlin out of Pitt

    Gase has proven nothing special in Miami

    Rivera has been up and down

    Find me someone outside of New England and thus far the Rams where there’s definite upgrades

    I think he is one of the 5 worst coaches in the NFL.

    I could possibly be on board with Payton as well, if only he weren't committed to New Orleans. I could even see where SP might have the rare type of patience required to co-exist with Jerry. It seems most of the others with promising qualifications likely wouldn't be able to partner up with him.

    It's all but an impossible task to imagine many being successful, outside of the promise offered by a long list of "yes" men who couldn't hope to qualify in too many other respects. Finding prospects to replace JG simply isn't a promising venture to undertake. It'd likely be an extremely slippery slope to walk upon -- that's for sure . . . I'm thinking that's why it hasn't even been attempted thus far. :rolleyes:

    Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter is who I would target.
