Back in Saddle

Schottenheimer not being able to win from the "sports writers" I guess they didn't see that two year contract extension coming. Kudos to Schottenheimer, now watch him prove all you non-coaches who call your self sports analyst.

Good job Marty!

So Close

What a heart breaker. You got to feel for head coach Marty Schottenheimer, he takes a 4-12 team and turns them into 12-4. In my book that is a great feat. Although it is tough dropping the first round of the playoffs to a wild card team in overtime (20-17), Schottenheimer is now 5-12 in the post season and that has to be rough enough for the guy.

I'm not going to sit here and bash the guy for not winning, like other sport writers have. I will tell you that Schottenheimer has been around the league for 19 season. He knows the game, he knows his players, and he knows how to coach.

You can also say he has trouble in the post-season, or you can say it was his team that had trouble in the post-season. Last time I checked, it was the players who played and the coaches who coach, but of course the team always reflects the coach. Yeah, if you Bill Parcells. Seriously though, the 14-2 season does reflect the type of coach Schottenheimer is, and the this loss to the Jets shows lack of post-season experience for his young players. T

Now it is time to sit and wait for next year.
