Hanging in the back of my mind as well is the "fiery, in your face", take no prisoners (my metaphor) attitude. It's been discussed on this board even regarding that MO not flying in the NFL. Schiano found that out post haste. Several folks here have mentioned the ass eating he gave Brady on the sideline and I guess that's cool. On occasion. I've read of him being a "bow hard hothead" on more than one occasion. Granted, some of those were probably monkey hurt PSU supporters who can't let go. My concern I suppose is how tempered is he with coming uncorked or does he fly off the handle because someone brings him coffee that's not the way he wants it.
Not bashing here but I think it's a legitimate question. Other opinions?
The question concerning not having players with a high football IQ is interesting because I had not really considered this a huge hole in the Texans game, but you may have something there. I do not know if you could coach-up some players to where they need to be? Retooling through the draft and FAs to improve in this area would take probably 3 years in my small mind.
A hardas* like the 'Chin' will be great for this organization. Good character is great, but no testicles and drive to dominate cannot be lost. Good enough is not good enough this time around. Schiano was an as*hat that alienated players by his decisions to screw players. I know there were at least two instances in Tampa where they placed players on the non-football injury list to save money. These decisions only eliminate FAs from wanting to come to your organization and breed distrust. Decisions like those are why Tampa jettisoned coach and GM. I do not think a disciplinarian who has the respect of players needs to worry too much about today's NFL. Who wants more little Nancy's on this team?
