[QUOTE=C Mart;4299807]I bet you that applies to fans of 25+ NFL teams OC's...Check the Chicago papers. Lovie Smith is going through the same thing as Rex over OC Mike Martz.
Especially with Madden everyone thinks they can be an OC and call plays..Of course it's always AFTER a play occurs...Team runs for 2 yards--The OC should have passed...Team passes incomplete--The OC should have run.[/QUOTE]
Sorry IMO this response attempts to sound intelligent by being dismissive of fans in general but is in essence preposterous on its face...
Look are you saying that an OC should never be removed or replaced? Or that all OCs are of equal value and capability?
Of course not!!!
That would be by definitition unsupportable and indefeassiable.
The fact is just because fans at times react emotionally to their teams woes doesn't dismiss or minimize the fact that their observations are based upon objective phenomena that can be independently identified by statistics and third party verfication.
In the case of SD Charges fans statements they were shown to be right by the eventual dismissal of Schotty!! So their oipinions appraered to be right on time and on point.
The fact is that when as here he have two independent fan bases coming to the same or similar conclusions about a coach, i.e Schotty, you can't get away with "oh the fans will be fans canard".
Your assertions would have far more creditability if Schotty had been fielding a top 10 offense and the fans were calling him incompetent as is happening with the current Giants.
No, Schotty has shown that he has a good football mind, knows the game of football, will probably based on his demeanor and knowledge of the game make an outstanding NFL HC.
Nevertheless despite all of the above Schotty has shown himself to be a below average OC and his 69 calls for passing in this last game just highlight his amazing inability to make in game evaluations and sound game adjustments......
