And you blathered on with a list of "core" Mangini players some who predated Mangini like Pouha Ellis and B. Thomas.
Furthermore Woodhead and Mulligan never saw the field for Mangini.
Woodhead was signed injured and waived a few times before playing for Ryan.
Mulligan was claimed off off waivers from the Titans in September '09.
Ultimately, just another thread polluted with a fine example of you inserting some erroneous crap, twisting things to suit yourself, a joke to be sure but fitting right in with the other SOJF misérables - anyone who doesnt agree with that crew is a "homer".
Did I say that Mangini brought in Ellis, Pouha and Thomas? I believe I said that they were core players that were there when Ryan took over.
And you probably shouldn't even mention Woodhead and Mulligan (not to mention the other scrubs you gave Ryan credit for either). One (Woodhead) barely played and the other (Mulligan) made so many stupid mistakes on the field and arguably cost the team games, that giving "credit" to Ryan for adding him makes you look more foolish.
No one suggested that every player on the team when Ryan took over was Mangini's. But Mangini coached all of them and developed many of them before Ryan took over. The 5 "core" players you mention were important members of course. But anyone who is one of the 22 starters is important. Unless there was a solid core foundation already in place (Revis, Jenkins, Ellis, DeVito, Harris, Thomas, Pace, Pouha, Richardson, Keller, T. Jones, Cotchery, Ferguson, Mangold, Moore, Woody, Feely) do you really think the addition of Scott, Leonhard, Greene (who didn't start in 2009), Edwards and Sanchez would have gotten to the AFCCG? Can you honestly say that?
