Do you guys even watch college football? They play on a whole different level (a shittier one) than the NFL. Why would you guys even consider these backyard football coaches for professional football? Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't. We should be looking for coaches that actually know a thing or two about big boy football. We should be looking for a coach that actually has experience playing against competent opponents.



By that logic we should neve draft any players from college. They play little boy backyard football. Theyll never make it in the NFL. See, where that goes wrong? Pete carrol, Jim Harbaugh, Greg Schiano. All coaches from colleges making it in the NFL. It can be done

You would be implying that the majority of college players are drafted mostly for their experience rather than their physical tools and their potential to be great. Sorry, not the same thing.

remember when the dolphins had cam newton or smitty or olsen or kuechly? yeah neither did i. the dolphins didnt have what we have now. They most importantly didnt have a experienced or skilled qb like newton. What is the most important thing a NFL team needs to win? a QB. He's not my first choice either and hed probably go Clevland but while we are looking for a HC to hopefully win us a Superbowl because that is the ultimate goal this is a thing that we should be looking at every single option and leave nothing on the table

Living in Alabama I'd love it for the sole purpose of pissing off all the Tide fans.

But realistically heck no.

Dude's way of handling the players just doesn't work in the NFL, and Lombardi is like the Jon Gruden of GM's so heck no to that too.

Ditto. I'd sit next to my radio 24/7 with my chin propped on my fist and a permanent smile as talk radio went on about him leaving to coach Cam Newton.

Although it would never happen cause be wouldn't leave Alabama I wouldn't mind him. He went 9-7 his first year with Gus fuging frerotte as his quarterback and his second year he had some really good wins against good teams with Joey Harrington as his quarterback.

I think we need to look for a minority DC who has interviewed for at least 10+ HC positions.

With BCS championship approaching there are talks of Saban jumping ship of Bama because the whole 24/7 crimson tide feel it gets to be over bearing. He has said that if he goes to the NFL he only wants to work with Michael Lombardi.

So with all that said, what are your thoughts on a Lombardi GM with Saban as HC. He would bring back out our strength at the running game, our defense would be ultilized, the only thing is i dont know how well he'd gel with Cam in terms his progression and using him in the best way possible. Just a thought and I would like to know what you guys think.


Problem is...................... we have a HC

Mr. Saban is free to coach anywhere else his little heart desires.



PS...........he ain't leaving Bama (not in a million years)

They clowned Pete Carroll when he came back too. NOT advocating him (repeat, NOT advocating him as our next HC), I'm just saying.

I read an article about how when Jim Fassel was let go by the Giants, Saban was on top of the list of candidates for Accorsi when he was GM. If Accorsi is indeed evaluating the team from head to toe and Rivera is let go, I would not be surprised if Saban would be recommended by Accorsi to Richardson and the new GM.
