Tony Dungy's response

Recommended Posts

I am sure Dungy and Rodney Dangerfield will discuss this at some point. And Dangerfield will attempt to justify McDaniels actions.

Just read his tweet. Also the reaction in national media. JMD has to excel with Pats or it will be hard for him to find another gig in the NFL.

 

It's likely that his new deal with the Pats gives him financial security.  And the NFL will/has sold it's soul many times.  Just look at Ray Lewis.

Tony Dungy is as good as they come. Good for him for speaking the truth. It bothers me the McDaniels backed out of the job, but it bothers me more what he did to the other coaches. Thank you Coach Dungy for saying what the majority of us are saying and feeling right now!

I agree, what he did to the coaches that he had convinced to come here and sign contracts is just wrong.  Then he didn't even have the decency to call them right after he met with Kraft.

McDaniels actions show he hasn’t grown enough to be a trustworthy HC. I’m glad he revealed it before getting here, we don’t need another suspect head coach

I loved the tweet, and couldn't agree more, but some of the comments people left for him really p'd me off!

Had to stop reading the hate-filled, Faith-bashing manner that was spewed like venom @ Coach. He spoke the truth, but that’s supposed to take a backseat to “Political Correctness”. I’ve never been one to push my beliefs/faith on others, but i’m sick of hearing people being mocked for it.

He has every right to be upset. He vouched for McDaniels to Irsay, that's gotta' irk him.

 

I hadn't thought about that and I appreciate you bringing it up.  It may seem corny, but I spoke with my son about the importance of one's word.  If he hadn't affected others in this, there would be no problems.  One of the assistant coaches has already moved here, thinking that he would be working with McDaniels.  He may find that a new coach will not want to work with him.  Now what? 

 

I miss Dungy.  Heck, Caldwell and Pagano were at least honest men.

That's the thing, even though those guys get to keep their jobs for now, their jobs past this next season are a huge question mark.  Whoever the next head coach is may work with them for this season but after that he might want to start assembling his own staff.  Then those guys get canned.

I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to use the words I want if I'm going to include "hole" in my description.

I think I was a fool to have ever believed the Patriots organization was anything other than what they appeared to be.

Amen.  Not the part about you being a fool,  Amen to seeing them for what they are, and always have been.

If McDaniels is willing to betray our team , break his word openly, and utterly betray other coaches who were supporting him , just for a few extra dollars in his Patriots contract , then it is good that we found it out now. After all, imagine how much damage could have been done to our team by a head coach who is totally without honor and is totally willing to do Anything for money ?!

Not really pertinent to the topic as we aren't talking about Andy Dalton, but the Andy Griffith Show is a great show. 

 

Josh McDaniel's is the spoiled kid who threw tantrums after Sheriff Taylor confiscated his bicycle.

    • I am hoping it will be Bradley Chubb or Roquan Smith. This could be one of the wildest drafts ever so it is hard to give a definitive answer.
    • Yep. As it looks to stand an extra 2nd from the Jets which should be in the top 50 likely and an extra 4th from compensatory pick. That extra draft capital will definitely come in handy in our rebuild. I don't know what to expect this year based on Luck's health and his recovery but I agree in a couple years these young players will come along and hopefully Luck will bounce back and we will be ready to add some elite help to get us back into contender status. Tonight will be a big night in moving that vision forward. What is it...like 6 picks in the top 100? They don't all have to be pro bowlers but we need a good nucleus of starters out of this group. 
    • Round 1 - #6 A. Roquan Smith B. Bradley Chubb  C. Tremaine Edmunds   Round 2a - #36 A. Austin Corbett B. Isaiah Oliver   Round 2b - #37 A. Derrius Guice B. Carlton Davis   Round 2c - #49 A.Rasheem Green B. Anthony Miller   Round 3 - #67 A. Jerome Baker B. Tim Settle   Round 4 - #104 A. Kemeko Turay B. Nathan Shepherd   Round 5 - #140 A Nyheim Hines B Micah Kiser   Round 6 - #178 A. Kyle Allen B. Martinas Rankin   Round 7 - #221 A. Austin Corbett B.  Connor Williams
    • Bingo!  If we trade the pick and get another 2nd I believe we will trade back into the 1st.   If Buffalo is the partner we could wind up with three 1st rd picks.  How awesome is that?
    • James is one of my favorties....    and guys like Louis Riddick and Daniel Jeremiah have comped him to......   Sean Taylor.      No, not as good,  but similar qualities....   Works for me!       And I think he'd be a scary good fit with Hooker.     Seriously great fit.   But I can't convince myself that Ballard's first two first round picks are both going to be safeties....    not when he's always talking about how important the front-7 is to his defense....
