Kevin Sumlin Christ-Wagon Thread

Better than Ron is highly debatable.  Right now he's doing a terrible job as a play caller, and his shittiness is the reason they lost to Washington State. He's a terrible game day coach.  Always has been, and probably always will be.  

 

By the way I did read it, I just think using one good play (which honestly was a no brainer even with how good USC's D is) in a season of bad plays is a pretty bad argument....

I admit my evaluation of college coaches leaves much to be desired. I don't really follow college football so I cant speak too in depth about them. But I stand by the decision he made.

 

and most importantly it won the game

They had plenty of opportunities to win the game, and didn't take advantage of them due to poor play calling though.  Also, even as good as Chuckie Keeton is a victory against Utah State should never be in doubt.  Just like a victory against Washington State should be a certainty, but Kiffin made both games much closer then they should have been....

nobodys perfect.  But the good ones win. period.

 

Its happening right now with the Pats.  I hate the Pats. But they still win. Belicheat is a good coach.

I understand nobodies perfect.  But you should at least be a good play caller to manage an offense at USC, which he's not.

No thanks to Sumlin.  I haven't watched a whole lot of Texas A&M's offense over the last couple of years, but from the games I've watched, his gameplan is basically "QB run around and make a play".  That is just a little too simplistic for NFL defenses to shut down.

Kiffin was a pro coach (briefly) and he was awful.

Plenty of so called "Hottest" college coaches have failed in the NFL.

Personally. Give me a HC that can lead. An OC who knows the game. A DC that can teach. A GM with evaluation skills. I be happy.

Let the other teams give those college guys the experience they need. Then I will think about them for my team.

And miss out on the Harbaugh's and Carroll's.  You know, the coaches with probably the two best teams in the league...

Harbaugh is the exception. Carrol is the rule. Carrol flopped his first time through. But hey... nice try.

I'm not sure you can call making the playoffs two out of three years with the Patriots, including one AFC East title flopping.  He was also .500 or better each of his three season there.  But hey, if that's your definition of flopping I'll take some flopping in CAR....

 

He had a pretty terrible team in 1994 with the Jets, and was never given the opportunity to turn it around.

Maybe Ron should do a stint in college. It worked for Carroll

 

He might.  You never know.

 

My personal take though: He'll have a pro DC job within 5 minuts of his termination here.

Agree, he's one of the best, if not the best DC in the league.  Would love to have him as the DC here under a new coach, but that's crazy and completely impossible....

If we go the college route I am not sure I wouldn't want guys like Shaw, Chris Petersen, or Will Muschamp before Sumlin.

I think Muschamp is well suited to be a successful NFL HC. More so than a college coach actually.

Plus I just love the way he coaches a defense.

And the lastly he has "champ" in his name, I mean c'mon

I am not 100% convinced Sumlin's offense will translate to the NFL.
