Marv may have just saved his job!

Recommended Posts

It was reported today that we were already talking to people outside of the organization for the position. Lets hope this game doesn't change anything.

Let's hope it does, really want him back. He's the best coach Available.

A couple pictures of the stadium this year I saw suggested a low attendance. I would hope that would send a message that the fan base needs something to be positive about. If Marvin comes back, I'd be extremely disappointed. 

Empty seats don't mean they weren't paid for. The only downside to Brown is the drop in concession sales.

Could be a precursor? One would think. And it just doesn't look good when you're trying to win over new fans. If I were an owner, I wouldn't want to see it the way it was.

I'd love to have Jack Del Rio. It's very surprising to me that he got fired. Two playoff appearances in three seasons, just signed a four year extension, then...ghandi.

Rumor is they are offering Jon Gruden part ownership to come back

Yes, I'm opposed to hiring the hot dipshit who probably isn't going to do any better. It comes down to our shitty o line, fix that and this team will win every year. Get some LB depth and the Superbowl is calling. I think Brady and rothlisberger hang it up here soon, all the rest of the NFL currently is garbage.

Do you think Jon Gruden is really that good of a coach?

I love Marvin for what he has done to bring us out of the 90s, but he has some fundamental flaws in his coaching that cause us problems that run deeper than just a bad O-line.

I think it's hard to argue against that seeing as he took the Raiders to the AFCC and the Bucs to a SB victory.

Honestly asking, what did he just accomplish?

He got a team that had zero to play for in the last game of the season to give a huge effort and knock a rival out of the playoffs.  Most teams in the Bengals situation would have just mailed it in.

 

I don't think it saved his job here with the Bengals, but it greatly improved his chances of getting another job of some sort with another NFL team.

As much as I’d like to see this happen, there is no way MB is going to give up part ownership.

I am not saying Gruden is a bad coach, but he is grossly overrated.

 

After winning the Super Bowl with a team Dungy built Gruden went 45-51 in his final six seasons and never won another playoff game.  You can argue all you want about why that happened, but the fact is that if he really was an elite coach he would have overcome enough of those obsticals to have at least had a winning record.

I'm talking about the Raiders giving Gruden part ownership to make him their HC again. Not us.

No offense Fred as I think you get a bit picked on here, but you also think Paul Alexander is a good coach.

Well so do a lot of media, statisticians, and NFL people.

 

The crowd "group think" around here has been known to be very wrong also, so I don't really care what they think.  Kind of like when everyone was claiming Mike Zimmer was a football genius, but when he said Peko was a good player he was stupid.

I'm not participating in group think. Mike Zimmer's 13-3 record speaks for itself, those who thought Peko was bad are idiots, and Paul Alexander is a very average to bad coach.

But a large majority of the people claiming Peko was bad are the same ones saying that PA is garbage.  So you have a lot of idiots on your side.

 

At this point, after the failure of Bodine, Fisher, and Ogbuehi, I would have no problem with moving on from Alexander, but Alexander got a lot of hate before he deserved it.  These boards are famous for perpetuating myths.  Remember all of years of "Whitworth needs to move to Guard because he can't handle Tackle"?
