    Ive never been more down on the team but im starting to feel better about Flores after watching this video he inspired me. At this moment I feel like Flores is the right man for the job.

    I loved the video too. From school of hard knocks to the NFL all while helping to care for his Autistic brother. He is all about Family and Underdogs!

    It’s a nice story but that’s all it is.

    Imo

    Has no bearing on what kind of coach he will be. Again imo

    Agree with Hoops here. I’ve watched other videos as well and he comes across as a great man. But he learned everything at NE. The Patriot Way. Does he bring it here?

    Many have come out and said it’s a no fun no nonsense organization. That works when you have an authoritarian like BB. And if successes happen to validate the approach.

    Flores simply does not come across as a natural leader who can pull that style off. So what is his style? The team will take on the identity of their coach in many respects.

    I just don’t see this working but it’s an outside perspective.

    No doubt he is a good guy. However, the questions remains, can he be successful outside of Belichick when no one else could.

    Doesnt come across as a natural leader? Have you met the man? Seen him coach? I dont understand how you could make this assumption.

    Depends on your definition of nfl success. He only has one playoff win over a banged up raiders team without their QB. Other than that he’s been mediocre in Houston.

    We don't know how he'll turn out as a HC but after Philbin and Gase I really was hoping for a HC with energy and that's why I was hoping for Richard. Flores might be a good guy but that doesn't make him a good HC. I hope I'm wrong but he looks to me like Bowles 2

    I said that a few days ago, that he was being compared to Bowles. So we basically hired a Bowles with wayyyyy less credentials. That should work out well.

    Watch his interviews. His entire life he wasnt a leader. He flat out says it. He says BB told him

    “If you work hard and you’re committed to the team then you’re a leader.”

    That’s what made him realize he could be one.

    Can you imagine if this ended up as our staff: Caldwell, Flores, and Bowles :yawn:yawn:yawn

    I know Bowles is gone but man I would be falling asleep every Sunday staring at a trio like that on the sidelines.

    Hopefully he brings the hard knocks from his upbringing in Brownsville, Brooklyn and instills it into this franchise that has been notoriously soft.

    So did Nick Saban.

    Perhaps not in the NFL, but he went from four years on Belichick's staff to arguably the greatest head coach in college football history.
