If you feel so strongly about it, you should just dig into your vast financial resources and make him an offer. I think you'll have to come up with more than some loose change and pocket lint, however.
Long time ago re: Jim.
And to your point about "two people," there are far more than 2 guys, in the long history of the NFL, and even in the recent history of the NFL, that progressed from ST to Head Coach. Same with the college ranks.
I was just trying to use a few examples that included big-time names that everyone is very familiar with, if that makes sense.
First off, where did I hate on McDaniels?
I'm actually positive I endorsed him in another post, citing how Belichick (Browns) and Carroll (Jets, Patriots) didn't have great first head coaching outings. Guys get experience and oftentimes come back much better as a result.
Second, you didn't address my other example, John.
This is the first time i've seen this is over 30 years of watching football. It will probably be another 30 before we see it again.
marking the ball is a "rough estimate" anyway.
the measurement really isnt the issue, the marking of the ball is.
thete is technology thatcould eleviate this. We've seen it demonstrated in baseball. But this could make the game sterile. Human error is a part of the game untill they add gps or sensors to the ball and field.
