    If we can't get this guy for DC, can he at least coach the secondary?

    It's really sad that a couple of random fans can break down our film, explain what's not working, and provide insight on easy ways to correct it better than our coaches who make hundreds of thousands, or in two cases, millions of dollars to do just this with our players. We fans are getting better coaching on freaking youtube than the actual players are. This is absurd.

      I'm watching ut-isu and isu just called a TO, bc they werent lined up on D. My cousin goes "they just called a TO bc they weren't lined up? What a bunch of pu$$ies. That's us every play".

      The best part is that my cousin isn't from Fl and isn't even a big football fan, but he still knows it by being in the house while the rest of us are mumbling in disgust every time it happens.

        Look. I agree with a lot of what this guy says. Confusion when getting set (that's a major pet peeve of mine. If you have limited practice time and you don't know from week to week who will be available, stop overcomplicating things), certain elements of technique, playing to soft, etc. are also legit. But when it comes to a particular defensive set it's easy to use hindsight to criticize. Defense is sometimes a gamble. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. I still want to know where this guy got all this knowledge, I can't find a reference to that anywhere. Are we listening to amateur night or does he have some background to back this up.

        I get what you're saying, but a lot of football is pretty objective. I'd actually guess that he played hs and maybe at a small college, but he hasn't played at a super high level. You can tell some stuff he says is learned from studying more than being on a field (like when he goes into inside releases or why a blitz is designed a specific way). But that doesn't change the fact that he knows a ton and is correct on the majority of stuff he says.

        Does Grantham even have a yellow marker?

            you take away the explosive plays, missed tackles, missed assignments, poor personnel decisions, bad coaching, and all the touchdowns then we’d have a good defense......:lmao:

              I know enough to know he's clueless. Has he always been clueless or is he drinking too much. But he's right about one thing....Gotta improve tacklin.

                The Chinese fire drill formation should tell you all you need to know. Hard to know your job when you don’t even know where to line up. Inability to tackle is just part of the problem.

                Another coach with his head so far up his own butt that he can't see or admit what the problems are.

                  Maybe this guy should come in as a consultant.
