    Re: Childress Haters Rejoice!

    Personally I think Childress would be helped by giving up some of his control on the offense.
    He spents his short week putting on the Head Coach hat and the Offensive Coord hat.
    He should be head coach and get an O-Coord that he trusts and is capable.

    The ONLY 2 weeks our offense has been productive has been week 1 and week 7 (coming out of the bye).
    Both of which Childress had ample time to prepare a game plan for his offense AND be head coach to the rest of the team.
    Maybe that is oversimplifying but until he gets more experience being HC, he should let someone else be OC.

    Re: Childress Haters Rejoice!

    A lot of people seem to think that Bevell is just a place holder as OC.
    I disagree.
    My belief is that he is in a role very similar to the role Childress was in Philly.
    During the week, Bevell puts together the offensive game plan.
    Childress executes it on game day.

    I don't hate Childress, but I can't say I'm sold on him yet either.

    Give it a week or two. They'll be blaming Wilf for hiring Childress next.

    And then people will blame this all on Red for selling the team to Wilf

    Re: Childress Haters Rejoice!

    I dont buy the whole "Childress is learning new schemes" excuse. John Gruden went to Tampa and won SB in his first year there.
    : If you're HC in this league, you dont waste whole seasons learning stuff, you are expected to make at least "some" inpact upon arrival.

    Not to say that the blame lies solely on his shoulders, but he clearly doesnt get the job done so far. The glaring inabilty to adapt during games has cost us more than few games already.

    John Gruden inherited a Super bowl caliber team that Tony Dungy had built. He just added a little bit more to the offense.

    He also did not bring in entirely new schemes on offense & defense & an entire new coaching staff.

    Just more excuses... No one forced him to change those schemes, if you take charge and make changes, you better make sure those changes will work. Learning is NOT a good excuse for a failed season. Especially for a head coach.

    I wonder what Childress backers will say when he messes up our next season. "But he needs more time to adjust to the artificial turf!"

    :
    Exactly how was he supposed to know what those schemes were, when the entire coaching staff was replaced?

    Take a look at Lovie Smiths record in Chicago his first year & look at it now. He was 5-11 his first year & you would have shit-canned him after his first year.

    Re: Childress Haters Rejoice!

    I dont find the defensive schemes to be all that different to be honest. We still play prevent D, with a lot of cushion and "dont give up big play" mentality. Our run D is superb, but our secondary blows as usual. What hurts us most is the inability to adjust on offense. Our game plans DO NOT WORK on offense. Oposing defenses are figuring us out too easyly and coach Childress DOES NOT ADJUST. I certainly dont think it has anything to do with schemes. Flexible game plan and reactive playcalling is what we need the most. Aside from execution on the field, but thats self-explanatory.
