re: Is this the BEST we can do? - Sir Fury on 1/25/21 at 11:06 am
[quote]He's gone from high school to small college to the CFL to major college to the NFL (where he progressed from assistant DB coach to primary DB coach). I don't know a lot about him, but his coaching record shows he has progressed significantly. He's only been in the NFL for 5 years. I t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is this the BEST we can do? - Sir Fury on 1/25/21 at 9:23 am
[quote]It’s pretty clear to me. It’s a progression from lower tier (HS/FCS/G5 ranks) or lower position to one of higher responsibility. It may be subjective, but it’s still also fairly clear to identify. This guy Jones is not an “up-and-comer” because there has been no evidence of success besides ma...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is this the BEST we can do? - Sir Fury on 1/24/21 at 12:58 pm
[quote]Except hes not an up and comer. He’s a journeyman defensive backs coach with mixed results at best. His last few stops have resulted in secondaries getting significantly worse right when he gets there [/quote] That's subjective. What exactly makes one an "up-and-comer" anyway? That seems ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Why is O focusing on NFL positional coaches with CFB experience? - Sir Fury on 1/24/21 at 10:37 am

re: It’s been over a month sense Pelini was fired. - Sir Fury on 1/23/21 at 11:43 am
[quote]This is different than a Bama where there coaches actually go become HC. Analysts, Position Coaches, moving into coordinator roles. [/quote] Except for Pelini, that is exactly what has happened here. Some of you are acting like children. Grow up, be patient, and let the process play out. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How on earth can $2.5 million NOT have the best young talent banging on O's door? - Sir Fury on 1/21/21 at 8:29 am
I'm sure they're are lots of guys "available" that want the job. But most of those guys aren't good enough. And kf the ones that are, very few are available. We need to be patient. It will happen soon. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: The Transfer Portal is sending the wrong message.... - Sir Fury on 1/20/21 at 1:49 pm
The portal isn’t necessarily the problem. The issue lies more in that there isn’t enough spots for them to go to...unless a vast majority are willing to be a walk-on. Undergrad transfers count towards a schools yearly 25 signee scholarship limit. So, while schools like LSU are/were hemorrhaging play...

re: Nielsen looking less likely per Jane Slater - Sir Fury on 1/18/21 at 5:59 pm
This isn’t a Sean Payton issue. It’s a contract issue. Payton doesn’t write up contracts. If Payton wanted to block this, he would be done so by not allowing us to speak with a Nielsen....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)

re: Arnett prefers a 3-man front, Coach o wants a 4-3. - Sir Fury on 1/12/21 at 5:15 pm
People keep saying this, but its not true. CEO has stated multiple times, including today, that he wants to be "multiple" on defense. That means he wants to run variations of both 3 AND 4-man fronts. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Arnett interview today - Sir Fury on 1/12/21 at 1:42 pm

re: Hiring Arnett over promoting Raymond would be idiotic. - Sir Fury on 1/12/21 at 11:42 am
[quote] Yes, hiring a proven good dc is much worse than hiring a guy who has never been a dc. [/quote] Even thinking it's slightly worse would be idiotic. Not because I don't think CR can lead a good defense. I think he can. But he's never done it. Arnett has. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Have a feeling we will have our DC by Monday. - Sir Fury on 1/10/21 at 1:54 pm
The Freeman interview would have been quite too, if his agent had not leaked it in order to push for a few more bucks from ND. It wasn’t our side that leaked it. And Coach O never mentioned his name specifically until after it was leaked. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
