For some reason the difference between Romeo as a DC compared to HC is night and and day. And for whatever reason, don't know why?
I refuse to believe Haley was a good coach. The year he went 10-6 he had two really good coordinators helping him out.
With a merely competant GM, Haley would have had the Chiefs in serious contention for the Super Bowl right now.
The year he went 10-6 was a masterful job of coaching by ALL involved...as well as a weak interconference schedule and a shit division...
But the fact remains, every single player on this roster played better football with Haley as HC - they were more disciplined, better prepared, in better conditioning...
You can refuse to believe Haley was a good coach...but that sounds like a blind man refusing to believe that the sun is yellow.
