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.

    • We're trending upwards so that's an improvement from last year. The red zone stuff will sort itself out I think.  Reich and Siri have some film of what wrong. If they're competent coaches they'll see what we're doing wrong and react accordingly, play calling wise.   Not to derail with a Luck comment, but some are definitely overreacting on his arm strength. The guy was on a pitch count in training camp. Those arm muscles are still working their way back. He didn't look like Chad Pennington out there like some make it seem. His throw at I think 2:15 in the first to TY was a laser out route to the far side of the field. That's a hard their to make. Plus the ball is heavier when wet. He looks strong and he'll improve 
    • Leonard is a Colts lb who can actually blitz. Would be great to see Tom just eat dirt after being slammed down on a perfectly timed blitz.   We definitely look better overall as a team. 
    • Remember when Mathis said something special was brewing? Guess he wasn't just blowing smoke. 
    • Agree w/OP. Much to be happy with and build upon!
    • Our D is truly much better than originally expected. How good, only time will tell.   Pats will get it going. They always do. Brady and Belichick always do. And Gordon will likely be up to speed and balling out by the time we play them. Hopefully the Fins pop them next week, and when they play us they are looking forward to the Cheifs.
