Former Rams general manager Charlie Armey thinks Mike Martz would be a lousy offensive coordinator for the Bears, and he isn’t shy about saying it.
Speaking to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Martz responded to Armey’s comments.
“Working with him, he never expressed that,” Martz said. “I thought things were
really good, but I guess that’s why things ended up the way it did. If he felt that way, he never
expressed that. He was very amiable. He was very complimentary.”
We admire Martz for taking the high road, but his final days in St. Louis were the opposite of amaible. They were dysfunctional with lots of in-fighting reported.
Martz seemingly has so much to offer the NFL, especially quarterbacks. He has to overcome the perception that he’s difficult to work with, and Armey’s comments won’t make that any easier.
