When you think of all the technological wizardry NFL coaches have at their dispersal, we wonder sometimes if the next world-changing innovation will spawn from the mind of a Dorito-peppered slouch coach bunkered in his office at 4 a.m., watching game film and suddenly discovering cold fusion. They certainly put in the hours. Point is: NFL coaches have their finger on the pulse. Well, except for Herman Edwards.

Yes, Herm gleefully admits he knows nothing about them crazy Interwebs.

"Here's the concern -- in our society now, so many things come up on Web sites and Internet," Edwards said. "First of all, I don't even have the Internet. I wouldn't even know how to use it."

Finger on the pulse, that guy. We can understand, though, that a man like Edwards might have trouble with the Web, considering his struggles with, you know, clocks. The best way to describe, visually, Edwards' tenure as a football coach might, ultimately, be a blinking "12:00" on a VCR.

That ain't funny. You don't have to be a geek to be an NFL coach but the ability to search for info on the internet might be an essential tool for an NFL coach.

Hell, Peterson could fire him over Internet and Herm would come in to work the next day as if nothing happened.

Thats kinda scary cause ive seen first hand how the ability to use mordern media types can help teach football players at a much faster curve.

Apparently "Offensive Football Strategy 101" is now taught exclusively through online classes.

The first online site he should check:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forward_pass
In several forms of football (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football) a forward pass is when the ball is thrown from one player to another on the same team, ending closer to the opponent's goal line.

The more we know, the sadder it seems. If he is telling the truth, its sad. He cannot relate to a Brodie Cryle at any level if he is that stone age. If he is just lying, then what on earth is his point.

Herm could be the second Lombardi but he continues to amaze and baffle me as to just what is his "deal".

OMG - joking aside - that absolutely tells you a lot about this man. Even my 85-year-old father has enough interest in keeping current that he has it at home. If that is a true statement, he is one ignorant mother - and obviously not open to learning some pretty key new things (surprised?!??!?)

Wow - just....Wow

NO big deal. He doesnt use the internet omg. I am sure he has enough shit and papers avaliable to him to find out what he needs to know about the other team and football.

When I think of Herm I can only shake my head. What a dolt.

Gunther told Herm the internet was the place you learn you have been fired as head coach. Herm figures he can't be fired if he doesn't have that internet thing.

My first inclination was that he was full of it... but maybe he really is that out of touch. :shake:

Remember last year when he didn't know we had made the playoffs, until his wife told him?

He is strange, very strange.
