Whose are the "NFL Comebacks"?

I assume Farve is their QB with Tiki Barber as the Rb

Nah. I think this was the change that was needed for Lane to keep his job.

If USC has a similar season next year, then yes, he will be out then, IMO.

I think so. Monte didn't do much this year with the D, he had one good year when he was at Tampa.


I think the whole family thing with people on the staff is asking for trouble, to be honest.

Sort of similar to Bob Stoops and his bro as the DC.

Not that I feel bad for USC. Still one of my most hated teams.

Good. Apparently Haden won't get rid of Kiffin until after the sanctions are over, so at least we're getting a new DC. An even bigger looming issue is an offensive coordinator. Kiffin can't be given free reign with the offense any longer. His play calling is cringeworthy.

Tennessee fans,

would you welcome back Monte Kiffen to Tennessee if Gruden hired him as DC? The two worked together at Tampa(I believe).

Ill hang up and listen.

I would kill for him to come back to Tampa. How he produced such a shitheel is beyond me. Monte is the man.

He seems OK, but his defensive prowess doesn't translate well (Tampa 2) to the college game. Hope he finds a greener pasture for his skillset.

^This. The Tampa 2 takes a lot of time and discipline to get down right. NCAA practice limitations make it difficult for college defenders to learn it properly.

I remember back when LSU hired Chavis, certain Vol fans...like Sabanocchio...told us Tiger fans that Monte was an upgrade over Chavis. A big upgrade.

Fast forward five years later. Monte is now "resigning" from USC, and 99% of all LSU fans would cry crocodile tears if The Chief were to leave Baton Rouge.

The reasons are simple...LSU's defense under John Chavis has improved at least in some measure every year. We've never seen linebacker play as good as we're seeing now at LSU.

The Chief's first year at LSU saw an improvement of more than eight points less per game given up than under the co-coordinators.

Conversely, Kiffen's defenses, at both Tennessee and USC, declined from the previous year every year, with the possible exception of 2011.

There are college coaches and pro coaches, and coaches that can do both. The ones that can do both are successful at adjusting their gameplans to fit their players, rather than the reverse.

Kiffin is solely a pro coach, and that's where he should have stayed IMO.

Well the kids aren't good enough...and obviously with the practice time and scholarship depth USC wasn't practicing tackling.

Tampa 2 is fine in theory...USC was getting to the ball carriers/receivers but they simply couldn't make the tackles in space and cover the field - get to the open receiver that the deep cover man is supposed to have. USC was in position against Oregon...they just couldn't make any plays.
