Default Re: The Wade Phillips Thread - Status: Not a Candidate for Tampa

Honestly, I don't give half a damn about his motives; I'm just glad he's staying. We would have been hard pressed to find someone who could fill his shoes, as established by the Herring experiment.

Professional or not, to believe that a distraction was not created from the top down, is simply delusional. Worries about scheme continuity. Worries about jobs being lost......players and coaches........who will follow him. Will today's players fit tomorrow's new defensive plans. Worries about repeating a good defensive draft. Worries about confidence after losing the defensive brain trust. Worries about Kubiak returning to the pre-Wade era. Worries about crapping your pants if things don't work out. Everyone, would be having some worries and would be worrying about not being able to stop worrying. And that's before even worrying about the bills piling up from all the psychotherapy sessions.

Great post.. on top of all that, I remember listening to a bunch of players saying they play the way they play for Kubiak & for Wade. If Wade's not here, or they think he may not be here.. some of them lose that reason to play the way they've been playing. They'll lose whatever that was that made them dig deep & bring that other level.

Spot on??
Which scenario are you agreeing with?
GP cooked up about half a dozen.

Damn GP
...and I thought Stephen King had a gruesome imagination...



And who knew that Antonio Smith knew words like "medulla oblongata"...??

Wade had more fun when he was half-ass campaigning for a HC job than he is now that he knows he was probably never a serious candidate and thus wasted his time AND looks like a rube for being conned into even agreeing to an interview.

Hopefully this shuts him down, sits him down, and he gets to the business of using his energies to help the Texans win vs. Ravens.

After all this mess, it clearly looks like Kubiak has the keys to this team and he's a lock at HC here for a long, long time--I say this in reference to the other thread where people pondered which guy was more valuable, Gary or Wade? I had said Wade is greater, but dang if Wade didn't go and pull this latest stunt and make Gary look a foot or two taller than Wade because of it.

The way Wade stumbled in and out of his HC campaign trail this season, he has to think he's better off just being a d-coordinator and letting guys like Childress get sucky HC jobs that are dead-end HC jobs to begin with.

I'm ecstatic. This is GREAT news for me, for us, for the players.

The entire speculative scenario, nicely summed up instead of the usual 'present one scenario as truth'

Call it an attempt to present a situation objectivity, I like that
