    The puppet strings will need to be ALOT stronger and Jerry better hit the weight room.

    I'm generally fine with it. He's probably the most viable flashy name out there outside of Urban Meyer, and I think the Joneses didn't like the fact that Meyer had no NFL coaching experience. The other flashy coaches with NFL experience have been out of football for years. And elevating the coordinator route is no guarantee either.

    I know there are others here who feel he should have won more with Favre and Rodgers in GB but unless you're Bellichek/Brady it's really hard to get to the Super Bowl year in year out. There are a lot of coaches with only 1 SB win.

    He's a major upgrade over Garrett and it seems he has learned from his GB experience, so let's see what he does.

    There should be 5 choices.
    1. Love it
    2. Like it
    3. Average at best
    4. Disappointed
    5. Hate it

    Or the face chart that goes from a big smile to a huge frown they have in doctors offices.

    Older retreaded head coaches can become stale & outdated in their coaching management.
    However, Tom Coughlin got fired in Jacksonville in 2002, took time away, then became a successful Superbowl winning HC with the Giants in 2004.

    Complete command/authority of the locker room, instilling fear on a roster, & assembling a coaching staff (especially with the meddling Jerry) is a must.
    Wait and see.

    It could be worse. Not jumping on the hype train though.

    It doesn't send shockwaves of excitement through my body, but it's still better than Garrett.

    Give him 3 years to make a NFC Championship game appearance and then move on!

    At this point I'm a no and I voted as such but I'm open to him changing my mind that article I read yesterday bothered me a little bit now that could have been mostly because of Aaron Rodgers he's a self-centered twit but the missing meetings not caring about the defense? Big?

    Not really for it...but whatever...
    I think he is timid like Garrett... I would rather have an a__hole as a coach with these wussy punks we have.

    Not sure.

    Won't know until I see what kind of team is on the field come opening Day.

    Until then, who knows.

    Jimmy couldn't coach in the league now a days anyhow. Those type of coaches are gone. There may be some hybrids now, but, that's it.

    Also, someone please tell me again how many Super Bowls Jimmy won with the Dolphins? Playoff wins? What was his winning percentage at Miami? 55.3%?

    Face it. The early 90's Cowboys was lightning in a bottle. Jimmy didn't do jack after Dallas. Was it Jimmy's "coaching"? Or was it the deals he made, while Jerry wasn't involved so much? It was the deals. And, when those deals weren't around in Miami. It kind of showed how much of a coach Jimmy was.

    I hate you for not giving me an out
    I like the hiring but it is ‘meh’
    Hopefully it turns out to be good for us
    I’m hoping that given everything Rodgers said about him, he will be motivated
    Wait and see

    I said no. We could've done better but it could've been worse. Ask me again when he gets his staff in place. That could change things a lot.

    But for now.....

    Online User Psychology 101 .. when given a chance, most people will take the "maybe, maybe not, not sure, we'll see" option on polls.

    Those types of options really dilute the poll value by encouraging users to not take a stance so they can say they voted either way in the future while being able to attack the ones who voted the wrong way then as well.

    This way, people either go on record or they don't. It's still their choice :D
