The difference between Rivera and Fewell is that Fewell actually does have a little HC experience and did pretty well despite the the circumstances.

Also, why do people continue to compare Fewell to Fox? Because Fox was a DC for the Giants too? If so, not a great argument because they both are in two different regimes.

And how quickly people forget that part of the reason he has been turned down for HC jobs is partly in due to the Rooney Rule.

absolutely not.

that's what i wanted last time.

most definitely what i want this time.

defensive minded coaches tend to lean on the conservative side of things. they lean towards playing it safe and playing ball control offense. imo, you have to be aggressive if you want to compete at the top or really at all.

people were flipping tables on this board in early 2011 when he was being interviewed and was allegedly on the short list

i wasn't a fan of the idea then and i'm not now.

I'd much rather have a guy that's been a head coach at some level. Whether that be Shaw (who probably won't leave Stanford), Arians (who I'd love), Will Muschamp, Wade Phillips, Kevin Sumlin, etc.

i forgot about Muschamp, he would bring that toughness that this team needs.

I would like to see a different approach than the Hurney way.

We came a John Kasey kick off away from winning a SB with a run first coach. Why everybody wants to run the spread and throw the ball 67 times now I don't know, but there is nothing wrong with John Fox 2.0

we never had a QB that could run all that well before, why do we want one now? /facetiousness

the league has changed quite a bit...and we were also the beneficiaries of a roided up Oline that year. not sure that great year would have happened if the Oline had been clean.

    • I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone.  Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
    • If y'all want to talk about a legit issue with illegals lets talk about the babies they make here and then the inability to collect child support when they peace out.  Until the Trump goes after the business that employee them, it's all pious claptrap.
    • I'm very familiar with the passage and the events that brought about His answer. Yes, the response was savvy, but He also didn't lie. There's another important passage about a widow donating her last two coins while the rich man donated more, but less, too. I'm sure you can massage that to nuance something to assuage your soul, but really, when it comes down to it all, there are some folks on the Conservative side that preach long and hard about following Jesus. The problem is that when they get to the part about taking care of the sick, the poor, the incarcerated and the downtrodden, they suddenly have a host of excuses and want to start parsing the wording so that they don't have to look at themselves and say, "Man, I'm supposed to be there for the less fortunate, but nah, not really. I mean, yeah, Salvation and all, but now we're talking about my hard-earned money." They always want the New Testament's forgiveness to apply to themselves, and they delight in the Old Testament being visited upon other folks. Outside of religion, they're also the ones who think it's a crying shame that "those people" don't have the means to fix themselves and then shake it off with the rationalization that those folks probably got themselves into that mess in the first place. We're all guilty of that to some degree, sadly, myself included.
