  1. I don't know that I would call what Chip Kelly did analytics. He found a system that worked in College and tried to take it to the pro level without taking any consideration into the difference in the game. He then stuck with it intractably till the bitter end, pissing off everyone involved in the process. If anything, what he did went to the other extreme. He was unwilling to modify his game. To be clear, I'm not saying he should hire this guy. I'm not saying that these tactics would work in the NFL. What I am saying is that I think Tepper might look for someone who isn't in the typical mold. Someone who is willing to change based on what the data states will or will not work.
  2. Since the "Analytics" catch phrase has been thrown around so much lately, I remembered a video I watched several years ago. It's about a high school coach who took over a small program and made it competitive by going against many traditional approaches to football. I want to preface, that I don't see Tepper going remotely to this kind of extreme. However, I think with all I have seen from him in the past year and a half, I wouldn't be surprised if the next hire is not in the typical mold of current NFL coaches. I am not advocating this, just stating he seems open to this kind of mindset
  3. I understood. He said that of all the days he has been in the NFL, the firing of his coach is effectively the worst. Worse than when he had the one chance in his career to win a SuperBowl and didn't.
  4. Olsen said this is as bad a day as he has had in the NFL. What about the day you lost in the F'in SuperBowl???
  5. I really like Ron. But he had once in a generation talent at QB, LB, and RB all on the team at the same time and pissed it away. That is tough to get past
  6. Tepper should hand out money at the games. Here's hoping
  7. The Falcons, Seahawks, Colts, and Saints. That's who will run on our defense Who runs our defense, as good a question now as it was before Ron got canned.
  8. Feels like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic at this point
  9. Ah, trimming the tree beside the warm glow of our burning dumpster fire.
  10. While I agree, Ron seems to find a way to lose games he is playing to win as well. Think the Detroit game last year.
  11. I have hoped beyond hope since the day they passed that rule that the Saints lose because of it in the playoffs.
