    From what I can see you have a blind faith in your ability to spin and weave comments taken out of context into your own storyline, but you're not very good at it. Again, I didn't compare Norv to anyone else as a coach. I compared offseason coaching moves made by other franchises. Each one had choices, each one chose to go with someone who hadn't been winning recently, and each one had a succesful first year without winning a superbowl right away. Only Belichick won in his 2nd, the others took time. Again, didn't compare them as head coaches at all. They are all completely different styles.

    Blind? You are getting played like a fiddle. But don't say I didn't try to warn you.

    How? As in I'm playing into the argument he is trying to start? Isn't there an ignore button on this site? I usually find it interesting to have at least one or two guys like bolts4lifecuzihavenothingelse, but this is getting pretty repetitive.

    To each his own I guess... but you pretty much answered your own question. Feeding pigeons may be fun, but everybody else has to deal with the "fallout".

    I am not a believer in the Ignore Button as you call it. Most of the time the one you are trying to avoid gets quoted by the others anyway. (try it yourself and report back the results).

    You really want to bury your own words. Sweep them under the rug and hope nobody sees.

    You are suggesting that I have the same pacients for Norv as Steelers fans had for Cowher. Well that's two completely different situations and two completely different people.

    Starting with a 7-9 team as opposed to a 14-2 team
    An elite Head Coach as compared to an Offensive Coordinator as a failed Head Coach. Care to deny?

    Please go to your ( User CP ).

    It is toward the top, then click those words and it will open up your CP.

    go to where it says ( Settings and Options ) there is a menu under that and the Ignore one says ( Edit Ignore List ) click those words and it will open up the Ignore page and follow what it says below the field to add ignored posters and there you go a Poster has been added to your Ignore List.

    I hope that helps in some ways.

    Deny what? That you are making up scenarios and laughing about them, not realizing that you are making yourself look like a fool who cant use cognitive thinking or logic?

    I dont deny that. It is spot on. As for what you think I am compairing, you are well off the mark, as usual.

    Whatever you say but your comparison is still invalid. Because Dungy and Coughlin were successful before bringing another team to the Super Bowl.
    Belichick had the Browns playing very well in his last season but then the move was announced and everything fell apart. Something he had no control over.

    I provided all the facts for you!

    Since this thread has slumped to a "I know you are but what am I" it will be moved from the main forum.

    There is no name calling or personal attacks. It's just a matter of disagreement. You and CK seem to believe that Norv is on his way to the same status as Cowher, Dungy, Coughlin, etc. and I think you're wrong.
    That's ALL it is!

    There is no one on this site that I know of that can point out the fault's with our Bolt's. Anyone can state the obvious form an opinion and quote stat's to try and back up what they're saying. as fact.

    We all have the right to our opinion no mateer how right or wrong it might be. :icon_party:

    Marty was coach during the 14-2 season, why would I need a crystal ball? So yes all of us know what he did.

    And again the 2007 team was not a 14-2 team, unless you expected LT to have 30+ TDs again and run at will.

    Oh and way to ignore 90% of my post and just point out a mistake. The Redskins weren't a quality team either, and yes they developed into a quality team, thanks to Norv. Um the Raiders were 4-12 when he took over (since you're so obsessed with the previous season's record). The Raiders were not a SB quality team in 2004, not even close any one that watched football knows that and it wasn't because of Norv, and I already told you they didn't have Brown, Gannon was only healthy for 3 games, and the defense was ****, maybe you need the reading glasses.

    And I don't love Norv, I've already said I never wanted him. But hey continue pretending that your opinion is the only right one, its what you do best.

    Again you need those glasses. Where did I say Marty did nothing to make this team competitive? Marty brought in Cameron (although he struggled early, btw guess who he learned from!) and other quality coaches, but then of course let the top ones go after the 2006 season.


    Um Brees got better after leaving the Chargers, and Brian isn't Marty.

    Yea releasing Harrison was brilliant, we've only had to endure all those scrubs. Imagine if we still had Harrison instead Moron McCree.

    Marty wanted Sammy Davis, AJ wanted Troy. AJ gave Marty what he wanted, big mistake, it was his first year but he learned quickly.

    Norv brought in Cottrell, he could of said no to AJ, just like Marty could of said no to AJ when he recommended Wade. They were both AJ's guys but the coach has the final say.

    AJ knew Wade from their Buffalo days so he was good friends with him, that's the same reason why Cottrell was brought here.

    Did I say Norv did anything to prove he could coach a SB quality team? What did the other candidates do? What did Marty do? We already know that Marty sucks in the playoffs. Sorry unlike you going 14-2 and going 1 and out in the playoffs doesn't do it for me. It might for you but I'd rather be successful in the playoffs than the regular season. Maybe we should hire Marty to just coach the regular season :lol:

    Wrong. You called someone, I believe CasualKnowledge a liar.

    So you're a liar as well.

    You like to think you're so smart - try posting a thread with suggestions for solutions instead of just going crazy with insults.

    BTW - is this piss or moan day? :lol:

    BTW... I don't love Marty either. I just know we brought in a much worse coach. The fans that show up at games know that too.
    Like in we gave up Brees for Kramer... the crowd reaction would be no different.
