It's your opinion that he started Jake because they are BFFs. That is not a fact. ;)


Will you be my BFF?

That is a fact. Personal friendship was a big reason why Fox couldn't bench Delhomme. Fox even said so himself. It's over. The truth has come out.

LOL at all you internet tough guys. Every last one of you would have been crying like a 10yr old girl if you were in the same situation. This is not a company like GM, this is more like the military where you make friends that you would literally die for if you had to. I guess you big ole manly men wouldn't know anything about that though.

BTW, how many of you watched Mike Minter's retirement PC? JR could barely even talk so I guess he's a pussy too, right?


You need a shoulder?

Whoa whoa whoa. Hold on there that's ridiculous to compare it that way I know people & have family in the military & that's not the same thing.

Coaching and Football aren't the same as most company jobs. Guys like Hurney who are strivtly business types are the ones to keep distance but coaches are alot like squad leaders in the army. When you go to battle with everyone every day and pour everything you have in trying to win, emotions are part of it. Football is an emotional game and consequently players and coaches develop bonds different from your average CEO to employee relationship. Many coaches are very emotion and getting attached to the leaders of your team is perfectly normal. Anyone who doesn't know that obviously has never played sports or coached at any level. it is one of the occupational hazards of coaching.


Look at Cowher who many think should be the next coach. Anyone think he is not emotional or doesn't have loyalties and favorites? Seifert was known as a distached unemotional coach who didn't mix with the players or let his feelings get involved in decision making. How did that work out?

Comparing the NFL to the armed forces is probably one of the more asinine things this forum has seen.

Hey I can play that game! You think Parcells or Bellicheck would cry over having to cut a QB that just threw 18 picks?

They weren't hang out together buddies. They were "been through the wars together buddies." As a touchy-feely anti-war liberal, you wouldn't know that feeling.

:rolleyes:

BTW, I have heard Brentson Buckner say that it was Hurney that got more emotionally attached to players than Fox did while he was there, so you really don't know a damned thing.
