True thatI wouldn't hire Urban Meyer to coach a pro team. I'll be ecstatic if the jests went that route.
The only coach I can think of that successfully made the transition directly from collegiate to NFL HC, with no pro background was JJ.
Are there others?
Hear me out. I almost never like to root for a loss, but I really really don't want the Jets to be picking 1st in next years draft. I like Tua, but he's not in Lawrence's league. If the Jets get Lawrence, he's going to be kicking our butts for a next 15 years. What better way to screw the Jets, then giving them some meaningless wins thus ensuring they wander the wilderness for the foreseeable future. Let them take some overhyped athlete like Fields or Lance if they want a QB.
Losing 5 more games than the year before because they had Cassel instead of Brady, you mean.
Nothing forever diminished Brady's value.
Thanks for having my back on the spelling error. How’s your own spelling of “important” looking? Anyway, you can’t convince me rooting for the Dolphins to lose to the Jets because we are afraid of who they might draft it not dumb. Sorry!!
They beat teams by an AVERAGE of almost 20 points a game. That isn't a fluke and it certainly isn't a close enough margin to win or lose based on "things going your way". That's the largest point differential in modern NFL history and it's not even close.I know they lost 5 more games. The 16-0 team was a bit of a fluke (in addition to being a very good team, a lot of things have to go your way to go unbeaten in an NFL season...many of those had nothing to do with Brady). The Pats didn't get some of those breaks in 2008.
