David has yet to fill out a bio.
Hi David—this is Dave Morrison, one of Bleacher Report's Community Coordinators.
Please avoid using profanity/making personal attacks/using homophobic language in the threads. Consider this a formal warning.
Wanted to respond to your Mangini question:
I think he's a coach with good ideas, but needs more time to learn how to execute them on a leadership level. He takes a Belichick approach without Belichick results. He preaches a lot about preparation, adjustments, and all the keywords in the NFL, but his teams never execute.
Don't buy into any hype about how Favre killed his career. Everyone says 9-7 after 4-12 is a success. But he went 10-6 in his rookie year before the Jets went out and made a splash in free agency! He had guys who didn't fit certain roles stepping in, and he made it to the playoffs. How he can do worse with seven Pro Bowlers is a mystery.
The fact remains that Mangini's gameplans were too smart for their own good. He comes out passing against teams who can't stop the run. He abandons the run too early, and let's teams make it close in the second half.
Aside from that, rumor has it that for all his coolness, and even-keel persona, he panicked after the Broncos beat us. He changed up gameplans, changed players assignments.. and everyone knows the rest.
Who knows what he learned in New York. But I don't think he's ready for an HC job so soon.
Dave, can you respot your comment on my article UNLEASHED/Broncos Stampede...thanks
