The article says 18 years of experience. I am assuming he coached with another team too. Right?

Nope. He was a scout for NE 2004-07 before coaching. 

Only one year coaching assistant on O, and that was combo'd with STs. 

 

He played LB in college too

From Wiki:

 

In 2004, at the age of 23, Flores joined the Patriots as a scouting assistant, the same year the franchise won its third Super Bowl title in Super Bowl XXXIX. He became a pro scout in 2006 before getting promoted to Bill Belichick's coaching staff in 2008, serving as a special teams coaching assistant until the end of the 2009 season. His title was changed to assistant coach offense/special teams in 2010. He was named defensive assistant in 2011

 

I think that is great experience for a head coach -- and he has been a head coach before. I would not mind him but I would prefer an OC. 

 

I like most of his resume. The fact he was never a coordinator though is typically a pre-req.

The one year on O really does nothing for me, especially if you look at NE's coaches on O at that time. 

I like the years scouting though.

This game is a laugher....over 300 yards vs 45......14 points.....it likely doesnt get closer.


Steelers only got in because we choked, they don’t deserve to be here.

 

The 7th seeds have been underwhelming. Titans glad they play only 1 of the Bills or Chiefs, lucky guys.

 

Bengals will be run over by Titans. They played scared vs Raiders. They’re too young to win more than one.

My takeaway so far. Burrow looked amazing, Allen looked amazing, Brady looked amazing, Mahomes looks amazing. Jimmy G looked so so but they have a devastating pash rush. We need a great QB or pass rush to ever hope for a SB

I remember someone in the organization say you either need the QB or the pass rush.

Bengals have more talent then Tenn across the board, a lot of it young talent but a different level so a very interesting game.

Burrow looked OK, let’s see what he does vs Titans for me to believe in him

Steelers and Eagles are the two worst teams to make the playoffs in recent history. Byproduct of more playoff teams being added

If Colts took care of business all 7 AFC teams would have been legit so adding the 7th team only hurts because who made it.....in theory isnt bad

I thought he coached well in Miami.

If they are doing an inter conference game for the 17th game, the best 2 teams across conferences should make in as the 7th team. I know we could have an AFC vs AFC team in the SB but it’s very unlikely, IMO

If not for that 7th spot we would have missed last year, and would have had to beat the Raiders, Jags plus needed help this year

I'm just not sure how to grade him at Miami lol.

They were either average or below average in just about every category. 

They had a really bad start this year, and a decent finish. But the majority of their wins were over bad teams. 

 

If I had to guess, Miami will go with offensive minded hire. Daboll (Buf's OC) is probably the best choice for them. He also coached Tua in college, which would be smart if Miami is sold on making it work with Tua.

Tua is a mess...doesnt seem like an NFL QB by any means....

I liked Tua in college, but never thought he'd translate well to the NFL.

 

Not sure Miami is ready to move on though. 

 

I think Flores wanted Watson. Watson like Flores too. So Miami might want an O guy that will be committed to making Tua work. 

 

I also wouldn't be surprised to see the Texans hire Flores pretty fast, especially if they still want to keep Watson.

Is it true that his Dad trained him to play left handed even though he was right handed, just because his dad was a lefty? 
 

And yeah, if rumors are to be believed Flores definitely wanted Watson. Apparently they’re in communication trying to end up together.

I don't know. It seems most teams get their wins against bad teams and are about 500 or below against winning teams.

    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz.
