    Yeah, that's a must read for sure.

    Who gives a shit. We are fans. We are suppose to discuss how much of an idiot we think a coach is. Don't act like coaches don't get fired. It is a tough job but we have the right to bitch about it. I spend a lot of money.
    Bitching about it is one thing. When a fan claims that they can do a better job - that is simply wrong 99.999999% of the time.
    So you mean there is a chance?

    There's not a single person on this board that could do better than Childress... but his job is to coach. Childress wouldn't do well in some of the careers held by some here on PPO, either.

    Point being, coaching football is his chosen career path, and while the average person wouldn't be able to do his job as well, he is considered by some to be on the bottom of the well, as far as coaches go. If I say someone is bad at their job, I mean in comparison to other people that hold that job, not in comparison to everyone. Childress would out-coach every single one of us on this board.

    Being a fan is awesome, we get excited when the team is doing well, and we get pissed when they're not. We can bitch and moan all we want, but we can offord to forget about it after the game is over.

    That is so true.

    I for one would never think of opening a game with a reverse pass to the QB when I had Brett, Randy, Percy and Adrian on the field. I guess it is the little things like that which separate him from the rest of us.

    I don't think that's the point.

    The point is that someone like Tony Dungy could win far more games than Childress.

    I agree. I was trying to clarify the point I was trying to make. Simply because we criticize doesn't mean we think that we could do better ourselves, but we think that, as far as coaches go, he isn't too good. Childress is a better football coach than the average man, but among the average coach, he sits towards the bottom.

    And, as usual, the point is totally missed.

    Why am I not surprised that one of the biggest "I Know Better" posters finds no value?

    =Z=

    .....yet the originator of the thread doesn't offer up any value he found.

    I think you've got it bang on KrackerJack, the inability to do something does not automatically mean you cannot critisise when somone is obviously messing things up. Punt to lose anyone?
