  1. Dirk Koetter already has been a head coach, first for Boise State, then for Arizona State. He was okay there, and it’s not necessarily true that a guy who hasn’t been an exceptional college HC can’t be a good NFL HC. NFL coaching requires a lot of things college coaching does, and college coaching requires recruiting, compliance, relating with a much younger set of players, etc.

    All that said, I’m unconvinced.

  2. Wow, what a cheap shot at Dirk Koetter. Sometimes it’s not about offensive ranking but what you do with the players you got. The Jags drafting was so bad for so long I think it’s impressive they’ve even stayed in contention.

  3. Wow, look at Tebow’s numbers on that chart compared to the other rookies. No “dinking and dunking” for Tim. If he was as conservative with his passes as Bradford he probably would have had an 80% completion rate.

  4. JAX was ranked 15th in Yards/Game last season, and 18th in points/game. Hardly potent, but hardly abysmal either. Plus, is it not usually given that head coaches mange the team, while the coordinators run the offense and defense?

  5. Why would Warren Sapp have a better chance of getting into the hall of fame than Ronde Barber? Seriously? I understand that Brooks would get in before Barber but Sapp being more deserving of a hall of fame bid than Barber sounds crazy to me. Lets run down the list Barber is the ONLY player to have 40 ints and 25 sacks, Barber has started 183 consecutive games, 2nd most among active players(London Fletcher) not to mention Barber is a tackling machine making more plays at or behind the line of scrimmage than any other corner i see playing football. Sapp is known for two things: 1. the legal but still cheap shot on the packers lineman and 2. running his mouth. I just think that Barber is FAR more deserving of a hall of fame bid than sapp
