They both made it once.......not none. Let's also remember the guy was saddled with Tim Couch and being the GM too. Which was most of his problem, he wouldn't have that kind of power here. Not to mention that was a horrible team when he took over.

I just think you guys are overreacting. Gregg Williams was every bit as bad of a head coach as Butch Davis yet people here love him. Hell Butch got in the playoffs once Gregg never did.

Yep. Plus the players in Buffalo hated him and I hear he isn't the most liked coach in Washington either.

Butch biggest problem was that he was a GM and he had major power struggles within the organization. He has semi-rejuvanted his image with his gig on Playbook this past season.

Why is Butch Davis such a zero? He took over a 3-13 team and went 7-9 and then 9-7, made the playoffs and lost by 3 @ Pittsburgh.

Then they promptly went 5-11 and 4-12.

How much of that was Davis' coaching, and how much was his job as GM? Did being GM detract from his coaching? Is there something inherent in his coaching philosophy that reeks?

I don't know, I'm just asking.

We don't watch ANY of these other coaches as intently as we watch Chiefs coaches.

He mentioned Norv Turner as a good choice at O-Cord as well. If he's fired of course.

There's suppose to be a rule that was put in after Gruden that you can't trade draft picks for coach's. But there is some form of a hole in there where the league can take your picks away if they view what you did as wrong. Don't be surprised if we hire someone like Edwards, if the league bends us over and takes picks from us.

Yes, It's cracking me up to no end. If he really thinks Stoops is the best coach in america that can be hired, as he said, I feel for him. Ferentz is a better choice if you want someone from the college game. Stoops has massive failure written on him if you ask me.

Not to dredge up ancient history here, but I was very supportive of the Mackovic firing at that time. I hated his offenses; the only reason we made the playoffs that year was a bunch of fluky special teams plays.

The error wasn't in firing Mackovic; that team was headed straight back to 6-10 territory if he'd stayed. The error was in hiring his replacement.

I think the same situation applies currently. Losing DV shouldn't be the end of the world. But it could be if Carl makes the wrong hire.

Williams has a simialr background to Davis, which puts him equal with Davis IMO. All of the guys that we're fired today can't be considered a better option at this point.

I have been paying attention, however nothing has swayed me to think he will be a great NFL coach.

Nobody really knows. It's just a matter of opinion. I just hope he gets the chance to prove one of us right.

Stoops isn't as bad of a choice as some people think. 3 national championship games in 5 years. Even with the two losses, he is 12-4 against top ten teams. He is an outstanding evaluator of talent, and always has his players playing in the right spots. His teams don't miss tackles. He is a defensive-minded coach who is young, fiery, and has an extreme disdain for losing. On top of that, his players fear and respect him.

Not to dredge up ancient history here, but I was very supportive of the Mackovic firing at that time. I hated his offenses; the only reason we made the playoffs that year was a bunch of fluky special teams plays.

The error wasn't in firing Mackovic; that team was headed straight back to 6-10 territory if he'd stayed. The error was in hiring his replacement.

I think the same situation applies currently. Losing DV shouldn't be the end of the world. But it could be if Carl makes the wrong hire.

Worse than that is a team that hasn't been a winner in 15 years, Mackovic gets them there, makes them winners, and they call a meeting with the owner and tell him who they want as coach.

Gary Barbaro, Gary Green and Nick Lowry deserved nothing from Lamar.

They fleeced Lamar on that one.

Not to defend Davis or anything, but I doubt this would carry over to KC.

Spying on the locker room, lying to everyone, and generally being a despot are CARL PETERSON'S job.

I think Iowa got destroyed this year, I don't think that ever happened to Saban.

Iowa lost by 7. They hardly got destroyed.

They put up 346 passing yards on the #7 defense in the nation.

The comment about Saban is so ****ing dumb it doesn't even deserve a response. Every coach faces a blowout loss once in a while...

I'm sure they're going to interview more than 1 guy, so calm down.


The fact that hes even considered for the Chiefs head coaching job is enough to take my anger out on my dog.

This would be one step too much! This guy will eat the locker room from the inside out.

Didn't these guys go to Lamar to ask/demand that Ganz be promoted to OC?

They didn't go there to get rid of MacKovic, that was Lamar's decision, figuring that if the players felt that way about him, he'd make a great HC?

It's been years, and I'm going from memory, so bear with me if I'm wrong.

After getting waxed in the 86 playoffs, the players held a meeting at Barbaro's place and, together with Gary Green and (the guy who kicked a lot of meaningless FG's) Nick Lowry, told Lamar that losing Gansz as the coach of the special teams would kill morale. Kill the team.

I know that Ganzs had received an offer, but I can't remember where.

Lamar bought this charade. Why? I have no idea. The team had reached the playoffs for the 1st time since 1971 and the players basically told Lamar that losing Gansz would cause a collapse of the team.

Not withstanding that a team of perrenial losers had just won a playoff spot under Mackovic. Without a real QB. (They rotated Kenny and Blackledge- when one had the hot hand, he stayed in. Mack was not afraid to yank their asses when they screwed up.)

I know I'm missing some details that are essential. So if my memory has failed me, I apologize.

Out here in Cal, it was hard to get any credible info at that time.

It wasn't Green and Barbaro. They were gone by 86. Lowery was one of them.:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/inside_game/mike_fish/news/2002/11/15/fish_straight_shooting/

The last time Mackovic's players protested his actions, some 16 years ago, Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt sided with the players and fired him.

Hunt probably had had enough of Mackovic, anyhow. But even now, itís hard overlooking the role of the players and Frank Gansz, an ambitious assistant who ended up with the head job.

I come with the perspective of having been part of the Kansas City newspaperís coverage of the Chiefs in 1986. That season, which was Mackovicís fourth in K.C., the Chiefs improved to 10-6 and made their first playoff appearance in 15 years. But days after a playoff loss to the New York Jets, Hunt drove to the home of place-kicker Nick Lowery for a meeting with him and seven other players, including Pro Bowlers Deron Cherry, Art Still and Albert Lewis.

The postseason turmoil erupted when defensive coordinator Walt Corey was offered a job with the Buffalo Bills, followed by the resignation of Gansz, a nonstop yell-leader who oversaw special teams. Within hours of huddling with the players, Hunt fired Mackovic and handed the job to Gansz, whom I later reported had fibbed about his military and coaching background and who himself was gone two seasons later after compiling an 8-22-1 record.

Behind his back, some K.C. coaches referred to Mackovic as Mouse-ovic. They spoke of him as being whiney and unwilling to take blame when the offense, his specialty, faltered.

Thanks Sib kat,

Lowry was the player rep. That's why his name stuck with me.

They both made it once.......not none. Let's also remember the guy was saddled with Tim Couch and being the GM too. Which was most of his problem, he wouldn't have that kind of power here. Not to mention that was a horrible team when he took over.

I just think you guys are overreacting. Gregg Williams was every bit as bad of a head coach as Butch Davis yet people here love him. Hell Butch got in the playoffs once Gregg never did.Yup. Not that I'd really like to have him, but I wouldn't cry about it. The Browns have little talent compared to KC. Their O-line was shit...

Why is Butch Davis such a zero? He took over a 3-13 team and went 7-9 and then 9-7, made the playoffs and lost by 3 @ Pittsburgh.

Then they promptly went 5-11 and 4-12.

How much of that was Davis' coaching, and how much was his job as GM? Did being GM detract from his coaching? Is there something inherent in his coaching philosophy that reeks?

I don't know, I'm just asking.

We don't watch ANY of these other coaches as intently as we watch Chiefs coaches.I think coaches playing GM is a bad thing. Look at Seattle. Holmgren gave up his GM duties, look at how successful they became...
