I remember going through this enthusiasm in previous years, only to be let down and my heart trampled on. This feels different though. It feels like Pace and Nagy are putting together a young coaching staff, of talented teachers. It feels like they are moving forward with conviction. Was it like this in the past and I don't remember? Did it feel this way when Trestman was putting together his staff, or Fox his? Does it genuinely feel different this time? I think it feels different.
It genuinely feels different!
I wasn’t AT ALL excited about Trestman and, being that the Broncos are my second favorite team, I wasn’t AT ALL excited about Fox! I loathed the Fox hire because I didn’t feel a single win in Denver was attributed to him, they didn’t need him there, they needed a DC and had Manning. That’s it, he didn’t do anything and his record shouldn’t count...he stood there, Manning tossed TD’s, and when they actually needed a coach in the Super Bowl they got the man we’ve been looking at on the sidelines for 3 years getting out coached in every aspect, end of story.
The game has evolved and changed. As ridiculous as this sounds...these young coaches played Madden like the rest of the people their age when they were kids. This old mentality of these stupid unwritten rules where you take knees and “respect” your opponents so you don’t score are going away! The game has moved past that with these younger coaches. Look at LA, you hang 50 on your opponent whenever you can and you win the game. NE has been so successful because their HC has been playing by these “new rules” for 15 years now. The Patriots, whom I loathe, get a lead and then pile on points until the final whistle, just like we did to our buddy’s playing Madden when we were kids and into our adulthood. Nobody is given a chance to come back because they quit playing or went up by 14 in the 2nd quarter and tried to run the clock out for the remainder of the game.
The game passed Fox by...these new coaches are who passed him, and I for one, couldn’t be more excited.
