So their responses are ignorant despite based on factual information of who Weinke has worked and the fact he has built a portfolio that points to success at what he does. Meanwhile your responses are all about what he did as a player despite the fact it has been pointed out success in your sport does not equal success outside of it in a different function. Yeah....their responses really sound ignorant when stacked up against yours. You're not looking for debate or conversation. You're looking for folks to agree with you though their arguements has more standing actual information than your own.
Success as a player does not equal coaching/mentoring success. That is simple fact. First, you are wrong about Sean Payton. He played QB at Eastern Illinois and got one year with the Bears before bottoming out. In other words, he had less
success in the NFL than Weinke. Not to mention here are a number of the QB coaches in the league:
Zac Taylor - Failed as a NFL QB and CFL QB
David Lee - Never could make it to the pros
Gary Kubiak (OC) - Career backup
Greg Knapp - Failed pro QB. Couldn't even make a roster
Matt Nagy - Arena League QB
Wade Wilson - Medicore QB. Spent more time as a backup
Danny Langsdorf - Never made it to the pros
Bill Musgrave - Career backup
Matt Cavanaugh - Career backup
With that said we probably should steer back on topic instead of this silly and pointless "debate". Some folks can't admit they are wrong about something so not worth the effort to keep going for pages.
