F me , I just remembered the Jets have Adam Gase and I can't even make fun of the team that gets Marvin Lewis
What's wrong with Marv? I know he takes heat for his postseason record but look what he had to work with.. I've said it before in here a few times and I'll say it again.. What coach has done as much with less? Ownership hamstrung him his entire tenure and he was forced to pick up cast offs and misfits who were willing to take a pay cut.
For the middle of his tenure there, in 7 yrs, 6 of those he posted a winning record .
2009 - 10-6 L in WC game
2010 - 4-12
2011 - 9-7 L in WC game
2012 - 10-6 L in WC game
2013 - 11-5 L in WC game
2014 - 10-5-1 L in WC game
2015 - 12-4 L in WC game (started 8-0)
Those aren't teams with castoffs and misfits. 2011 was when AJ green and Andy were drafted. 2014 he was given more of the day to day personnel authority from Brown. So then looking after that time., they had 2 good yrs, then...
2016 - 6-9-1
2017 - 7-9
2018 - 6-10
So you can claim retreads and such, but that span of 6-7 years wasn't retreads. They should have at least done better than they did.
Now if you said Hue Brown.. sure... BTW.. I'm pretty sure he's still available.
