Schianno Bolts NE Staff

Recommended Posts

It's fun to make fun of the Patriots, but...  these coaches are real people and have real life situations (outside of football) come up, just like all of the rest of us.  I believe there was something outside of football that immediately needed his attention, and they would like to keep private business private.

 

I just hope nothing (too) tragic and wish him the best.

Interesting situation.  He says-

 

“This is not the result of any one event, but rather a realization that I need to spend more time on my faith and family. I don’t want to look back years from now and wish I had done things differently. Therefore, I am taking time away from the game to recalibrate my priorities.”

 

The Patriots never formally introduced him as their DC, but it had to have caught Belichick off guard as he had just been interviewed by Duke basketball coach K and BB admitted-

 

“We’ve added Coach Schiano to our defensive staff,” Belichick said. “He’s a very experienced and outstanding fundamental coach, good teacher, and has a lot of experience in both the college and the pro game. He coached a lot of our players. We have quite a few guys from Rutgers and I think he could be a great addition too.”

 

I don't know, but hope the best.

Yes....this has to be somewhat deflating for Belichick. :burnout::peek:

Sure, only family... The guy takes a coaching job, then a year later realizes, "Oh snap, I forgot about my family!" Then quits.

@ReMeDy, he has three kids in high school and college.  His wife is home anticipating an empty nest while he is working around the clock in Foxboro.  What could possibly go wrong?  Or, he has a college HC gig.  Who knows...

He is obviously a religious man and doesn't want to work

for a guy that promotes the sex trafficking trade.

One look at the Patriots organization and he decided he must have done something to displease God, so he decided he better start spending more time on his faith.  He probably decided if he spent a year with the Patriots, he'd have to spend the rest of his life on his knees reciting Hail Mary. :)

I don’t pretend to know if Schianno is a religious man or not.   But he has a long history of being a world class jerk everywhere he’s been.   He’s been a jerk to media, to players, to opponents...   pretty much everyone.  He wasn’t acting much like a religious guy back then.   Maybe he’s found God later in life?   He wouldn’t be the first person.   I sincerely hope his problems are not with his wife and kids. 

 

But I’ll reserve my sympathy for Schianno until I learn more details.  I just don’t believe the man.  He’s neither trustworthy or credible.

I heard the other day Kraft called him up to his office and told him, since he won't be traveling to Florida anymore he was going to expect a few more things as part of Schianno's "job duties".

    • As I said, it's never about "can you fit under the cap?", or "do you spend all your cap space?" Because you can fit under the cap certainly. Actually, you have to, that's the rule. And most teams do spend their cap space. That's the point. Use it all if possible. The Patriots use it all usually, the Steelers use it all usually, etc. Most teams do. Actually, the Colts do use almost all of their 2019 cap space too. (The 2019 total sum of contracts is a bit over 184 million, just a few mills under the cap. That "40ish cap space" is already nothing else but the rollovers from previous years.)   But, even with spending all the cap space, there is good cap management, and there is bad cap management. The Patriots spend all of their cap space, and they manage it very effectively. The Colts (now) spend all of their (excluding rollover), and I belive Ballard manages the cap very effectively. But the Jags didn't. They went over the line, and sacrifized their future effectiveness by getting into bidding wars and signing pricey free agents one after another. The problem wasn't Norwell. If it was only him, that would be ok. The problem was, that they also signed Moncrief for 10M, Jenkins for 6M, Church for 7M, traded for Hyde and payed him 4M and he barely saw the field, etc, etc. The list is very long.      I never said that having elite talents heading into their second contract is a burden. You are right, that is a blessing. Actually, that is the best that can happen to a team. That's what Ballard want's to do! The problem is, that the Jaguars got into a situation, when there is a very good chance that they cannot sign their own guys. And their roster got thin, because they could not refill it this offseason enough. They got worse. And they will become even worse in 2020, because they won't be able to retain their talent level. Yes, they can cut Campbell, they can cut Bouye, and they can trade Ngakogue, and fit under the cap. And then? Who will play at CB, who will play at DE? A mediocre somebody. So, instead of improving their team, they actually made it worse. That's the bad management. Cap wise and talent wise as well. (However, I do agree, that they kinda draft OK recently - one year exceptionally well, but still OK since then, so their talent infusion is somewhat OK. What they screwed up big time is cap management.)   Btw, this is an old story repeating itself. Coughlin has been with the Jags before. And he drove them into cap hell before. It was bad, it cost them years to recover. He's just doing it all over again. He is (was) a very good coach, but terrible at managing the cap.
    • https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/colts-say-no-trade-offers-sticking-jacoby-brissett-backup?fbclid=IwAR0IGDgC2r_pBbt7tUzbQjxiBv0zfXiUyxQtxziGhcsvuaRHI3Or6xVIT74   I like Reich's quotes here:  “It’s impossible for me to have a higher opinion of Jacoby than I do,” Reich says. “I said it last year, I think he’s a top 20 quarterback. I still say that. After watching him for a year, this guy’s really good.   “I tell Chris all the time, ‘Please don’t let him go. I don’t care what anybody offers him. Don’t let him go.’ I love Jacoby. The problem is now I’ve gotten to know Jacoby and, at some point, I hope that it works out for Jacoby. But not now.”
    • How is the number of UDFAs significant to anything?     For the record, the Colts actually signed 11 UDFAs...JAC signed 21.    BTW, here are some of the "better teams" and the number of UDFAs this year:   HOU - 20 KC - 23 CHI - 22 NO -17 LAR - 19 LAC - 19   I see no clear correlation between "better teams", thin rosters and UDFAs. There is more of a correlation between the number of draft picks and UDFAs, if anything. Those teams typically had less draft picks...and therefore...more roster spots to give to UDFAs. And UDFAs understand this as well...and see a better path to making a roster if a draft pick is not in their way.   In 2018, the Colts...in the first year of a new offensive and defensive scheme...coming off a 4-win season...signed only 10 UDFAs...because they had 11 draft picks...which makes sense. But that roster was by no means deep.  
    • I suspect, knowing Ballard to date, he is a guy who knew all about all the candidates including Reich, but I think @Valpo2004 did a good job breaking it down.
