I'm wondering if his offense is a product of just being more talented than the next team. And I've yet to be impressed by his defenses, however, I'd love him 10,000 times over Garrett any day.
So is Jerry going to admit not anybody can coach the Cowboys and get Jimmy in the Ring of Honor?
Coaching the Cowboys would probably be his dream job. However, Jerry would still want control and it wouldn't matter in the long run.
There were "sources" that said a video was going to come out later that day showing Dez beating a woman in a grocery store parking lot. Then it was going to be the next day. Then by the weekend. And now it appears that video never existed.
"Sources" these days appears to be code for "I'm speculating and suggesting someone in the know told me so I can claim I actually know something"
Look at what it said - "several league sources". Aside from the fact that line has been used frequently about things that never happened, why would the "league" even know? There is no reason either Jerry or Lincoln Riley would go to the NFL to say there is an interest. If they want to talk, Jerry and Riley will talk, and there is no requirement for either to give the "league" advance notice.
Unfortunately it seems to work for almost every media source these days. With the multitude of media sources, and the constant access to all of them through the internet, there is a lot of competition for them all to get the attention of the consumer, so I think they don't worry as much about facts and research and verification because that takes time. So they all cut corners and print speculation (or sometimes lies) with a headline that suggests it is fact.
he is a college coach, running the gimmikie college spread option and accumulate yards and scores against weaker teams. college teams don't play defense any more and focus is on offense and scoring since that's what gets you wins and to the big dance and on TV....
and when was the last time that happened in the past 27 years?
he is not on my list at all....another college coach waiting to fail or be average in the NFL. some coaches are meant for college only.
more than college coaches. right now over the past 10 years, how many college coaches lit the league on fire?
Or a huge challenge...
driven by offense, but win championships by defense. if its a copy cat league, see New England this year. see superbowl score last year. see Denver win it with half armed Manning..... if Riley comes and lets say he is able to get his gimmikie offense working in the NFL. without a defense, we will be 8-8 team losing shoot outs....like Detroit used to do
Winning in college is as much, or more, about recruiting talent than actual coaching skills. There is precious little recruiting in the NFL, whether Riley (if he's even interested) has the coaching skill to win in the NFL is debatable at this point.
There's a lot of "if we only had Lincoln Riley we'd be SB champs" sentiment here, but Riley would still have to deal with JJ and Stephen, and whether he'd be able to do that is totally unknown.
Actually this "story" sounds more like some Cowboys fan or Garrett hater's wishful thinking than actual rumors...
I happened with Bill Parcells ... at first, at least.
Got that right, the Saints aren't putting up huge points with Bridgewater, but the defense isn't allowing huge points, either...
After 20 plus years and having to deal with what we have delt with, wth do we have to lose? 80Mil, hell yeah, throw it to him.
Actions speak louder than words.
MAKE IT HAPPEN, JERRUH !
Does Lincoln keep kellen? Does he get whole new defensive coaching staff ? (Hope so) lol
