Saints said the Broncos have requested permission to interview DC Gregg Williams for Denver's HC job.

Apologies if repost. I cant remember if he was a head coach before, but it would be neat to see someone from my hometown get a head coach gig again, even if it is for the enemy.

The only thing I know about him is that he was a HC with the Bills, was the HC in waiting in DC(but Snyder fired him) and left Jax after one year after Sean Payton took a pay cut to lure him to New Orleans. The way the defense imploded against the Seahawks is not a good thing.

He coached the Bills from 2001-2003, and had a 17-31 record.

Gregg Williams was a Super Bowl defensive coordinator in Tennessee and a Super Bowl winner in New Orleans. He's more than qualified to be a head coach.

He got the shaft in Buffalo, just as every coach since Marv Levy has gotten the shaft in Buffalo. It's a terribly run franchise. Period.

His defenses are very complex and with all due respect to my bro Mo, I'd rather see him coach outside of the AFC West.

Gregg Williams' defenses are actually too complex, IMO, and as a result, his players tend to think rather than just react.

In fairness, Buffalo is the place where coaches go to die, so maybe he can find success also. But honestly, I doubt it. He was the master of the 4th and 2 at the 35 yard line -- PUNT! Oy. :rolleyes:

There is no doubt that the Bills have had a significant talent deficit for many, many years, especially at QB, where it has been one mediocre player after another.

The Bills under Williams seemed reasonably well coached and played reasonably hard. What I really held against him, however, was a true talent for (seemingly to me) NOT going all out to win. He would invariably punt in the maroon zone, even when it was 4th and not-much.

He just seemed like an overly cautious coach. Maybe that's a result of having a mediocre team under him and trying to keep the score close. Maybe it was having more confidence in his defense than his offense. But at the end of the day, based on what I saw, my current feeling is that he's "topped out" as an excellent DC.

Obviously, he may prove me wrong. I have no personal like/dislike for the guy. He certainly wasn't the incompetent boob that some in Buffalo have been, there's no question of that.

Hard to say. Buffalo was along time ago. I think he learned a shitton about being a HC / tip of the spear leader from Gibbs.
The guy is smart, inovative in the way he teaches the game and has for 20+ years.
-He isnt the same as he was even 6-7 years ago imo. While he still has a helluva fire in him its not the same, more under control,more between the ears.
Back when he was FIRE all the time. Edit- dry grin-
But its hard for me to not root for him, he was my dad before i had a dad, gave me my 1st football pads, taught me how to block and tackle, throw, catch,hit, called me after every game in jr. high and high school, they have done soooo much for me....if you buy into what he sells, my sig says it all.-

And thats all i have to say about that-

As we all know, Belichick didn't have a great time of it in his first go-around as HC either, so certainly coaches can mature/improve from first to second HC jobs.

Again, I certainly have no dislike for the guy, and he's certainly an excellent DC.

While true, the draft will still happen, so that makes this year's timeline pretty much the same as usual in terms of head coach hires. The coordinators could probably wait a little longer if there's a lockout, though.

You have a former player calling the shots when he never has before. You have a QB who the GM has basically already called lousy. The best WR is a system guy.

Defensively, the DL stinks, the pass-rusher is coming off a major injury, DJ Williams is on the way out, the secondary is a million years old and Bailey's probably gone as well.

The offensive line is good, but that's about it.

Pat Bowlen is getting the Al Davis virus. Signing Elway up is an extremely dumb idea. I LOVE it.

Again, nobody knows if it's a dumb idea or not... we'll find out soon though.

Heh... many thought the same about the KC gig a few years ago, that's worked out alright so far.

Name one person outside of the Denver blogosphere who made this claim about KC.

I don't know if there's a less desireable job than Denver's.

The Jury is still out on the kid, but let's not act as if he's the worst possible option in the NFL. Hell, he might have been able to lead the Chiefs over the century mark last week in passing.

I (reluctantly) tend to agree. He's looked decent in the few games he's started. Only time will tell if he'll continue to do so after defenses have enough film to start game planning for him.

I didn't make the claim, so why would I need to find anything? You did make the statement about KC, though.

FTR, Oakland is easily the worst situation in the NFL. The second closest, whichever that is, is a distant second.

It is the worst gig in all of sports right now,and anyone who takes the job at any price is doomed!
I promise you they will burn in hell!:fire::fire::fire::fire:

I can think of one that's worse. The Pirates manager.

Facing a Texans defense that was awful and a less than stellar Raiders hasn't shown me anything. Look at how he performed against the Chargers.

I agree... he struggled in his 3rd start against the #1 ranked defense.

One could say the same thing about Cassel.

Yep and I'm not sold on Tebow either... but, I realize it's out of my hands and they seem hell bent on making him work. So, I have to sit back and hope for the best and I'm sure it does make some candidates for the HC gig think "this isn't for me". And, that's fine...

The next HC likely needs to be offensive focused for that very reason, which is why I think they'll roll with Dennison or someone similar and he'll come at the price they're likely targeting.

None of it matters though if they do not change their philosophy on defense. It's been ignored for far too long.

So....I lived in Mosby but went to Ex Springs HS (with Gregg no less). Does that mean I get baned too? :harumph:
Mosby? If you're a Mosby cop I will neg-rep you into oblivion to offset the innumerable "speeding" tickets the Mosby police used to dole out.

NO...I lived in Mosby when it was a decent place to live. And I was the kid that most of the Town cops were trying to catch when something happened in town.

And BTW....we'd just neg-rep each other into oblivion.
I was never going to neg-rep you. Just wanted to make a Mosby police reference to someone who would know what I mean.

Which of our vaunted Deputy Dawgs managed to make your life miserable?
No one in particular. And very rarely to me or my family. When I was growing up in the 90's and early 2000's, the Mosby police would pull you over and give you a speeding ticket for going under the speed limit, let alone 5 mph over. They were viscous, and they had something like 13 cop cars at their peak (a ridiculous total for a town with less than 200 people).

Mosby cops have been just fine for the last six years or so. It is my understanding that State Representative Bob Nance of Excelsior put an investigation into the Mosby police dept., and ever since the Mosby police have acted like sane people.

Yep, you're gone. Is there a shortage of full-time vowels in Mosby? Your username could sure use one or two. :)

However, Bratkowski, 79, has no doubts Tebow will succeed at quarterback. The reason? A work ethic and intensity Zeke says is "unmatched" by any football player he's ever met.

"I try to tell people how hard he works, but no one believes me," Bratkowski said. "Tim is something special. He loves challenges. I don't know where he is today or what he's doing, but he's probably in the office in Denver looking at film or working out. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in a Pro Bowl one day."

He's 79 ****ing years old and obviously senile. Good reference though.

I'm sure someone who has either played or coached the QB position for over 50 years would know a whole heck of a lot more about QB's than you or I would.

I thought nobody worked harder than Matt Cassel.
