I'm ambivilent about Mangini coming back. The failure this year was the QB move, which is a GM decision. Based on the last five games, Brett Favre is the single biggest factor in missing the playoffs. Not saying he didn't have help. He's just the most glaring piece.
I have seen the light and it has hurt my eyes, Brett wasn't good down the stretch but even so we lost winable games to ****ty teams. With better coaching and stronger game plans we could have pulled out some of these loses. This staff must go and they must go quickly. I drank the koolaid and I have now thrown it back up.
[QUOTE=jetmart;2937728]I like that - means he wants to be a winner. 10-6 (wildcard) then 4-12 and 9-7 (no playoffs) - with that performance (i.e. regressing) would you retain your coach? I think not............
So, reading between the lines............BYE BYE Mangini :). I hope Woody is talking to Cowher ([B]Spagnulo ain't available as Giants are in the playoffs[/B])[/QUOTE]
... he is available, the rule change allowes coach's to talk to other teams while on their bye week..... i heard it today while switching to the Giants game for a couple minutes
the man did not know how to control favre and coach to his strengths. mandoofus is horrible. blew a sure shot at a division title and a shot at the afc championship. i never was on the huge hype of a super bowl team coming from this but at least playoffs and a turn to the right direction. this team is going nowhere with this fat penguin if he isnt out i will be furious. i hope you guys who watched the press conference are right in that woody didnt seem to gung ho about mangini.
[QUOTE=sec.101row23;2937695]Not exactly a ringing endorsement from Woody during his interview. Eric should be gone by Tuesday.[/QUOTE]
And Tannenbaum should go with him. This is deja vu for me, as it reminds me of the Coslet years, and how Dick Steinberg was just as culpable, yet didn't get fired. Mangini is clearly an amateur, but we was dealt a bad hand by our blundering front office, despite how much people on this board tend to overrate our talent.
