    There are a few coaches that can really stand the test of time...where they don't burn a team out on their own attitutde. Burns, Lombardi, Billick, Shula are all guys who coached in a way that kept the team in the game after year.

    Most coaches burn out a team, though. Parcells is a great example. Cowher is one who may be making the transition...though he probably should have been fired years ago.

    Green wasn't a bad coach...but most coaches only have 5-8 years in them before you need a change.

    Tice is just a bad coach.

    I concur on all 4 statements.

    Better Coach?

    One thing I would like to bring up... How many Defensive coordinators have we had since 1999?

    Its not just Tice... its the fact of us just ushering out to many systems and not sticking to one. And not having the personel to run a certain type of system.

    The great thing I like about the NFL, is that you cant stay on top for a decade. New England is done this year, they lost their offensive and Defensive coordinators. Just like we have been downhill since dungy and billick left. If we can stick with someone without them getting snagged, and an owner actually paying them worth a damn, then we can go somewhere.

    You have to realize... its not tice calling the offensive or defensive plays, and its not tice puting the helmet on and hitting someone in the mouth. Hell, its not even tice determining who is on the field.
    You know it s going to hell when the best rapper out there is white and the best golfer is black.

    Better Coach?

    For years I grumbled about the fact that Denny wouldn't take a chance and played it to close to the vest, and then we go the other way and Tice coaches too much like a fan. He actually thinks that every fourth down is an opportunity and wanted to throw the haymaker on every down... I think that Loney is going to bring him back to earth, we are going to control the ball, making the defense better still, by only making them play for half of the game, the way it should be. And can someone please teach Tice clock, challenge and timeout management? If he doesn't learn this, he is still going to cost us a game or two next year.

    Maybe we should sit Tice down with BUD GRANT and let them talk it over.

    Better Coach?

    Ther is an easy answer to this question. Tice is FRIENDS with the players and gets along fairly well with most of them.

    Denny killed a player (RIP Korey Stringer) by overworking him.

    Green ended up being canned cuz they got smacked around in the NFC Championship, and then came out and was 5-10....he resigned right before the Monday Night game @ Baltimore, in which my favorite quarterback ever (Spergen Wynn, God, does anyone remember that guy?)<<that was sarcasm by the way....threw some terrible passes and lost us the game, and the Vikes finished 5-11.
    I was at that game...Wynn sucked...and it was cold as sh*t to boot!
    I was at that game too. Wynn was terrible. The best pass of the game was a WR option from Moss to Carter on the first drive. We were inside the five like three times and came away with shit. If we had won the Hawks would have gotten in the playoffs, but we blew it for them.
