Re: Scouts Inc. ranks the playoff coaches

Maybe someday there will be a place where fans can get access to these types of articles at a moments notice over a boxy looking thing at their desk. We'll call it a 'Magic TV w/ keyboard and clicky thing' and maybe someone will figure out how to connect all the 'Magic TVs w/ keyboard and clicky thing' together to share these insightful articles. We'll call it the Intermesh. Someday...

Re: Scouts Inc. ranks the playoff coaches

Unreal.

Morons.

This not only got past the writer, but his editors, the website guys and all of their management at Scouts, Inc, but it was missed by ESPN too.

They're becoming a joke. (ESPN) I also don't think I'll ever be able to trust anything from Scouts, Inc.

It's from "insider" so I copied/pasted it:

Cowboys, Packers share top spot

By Scouts Inc.
(Archive)




Updated: January 1, 2008Maybe the glamour offenses are in the AFC, but the best defenses appear to be in the NFC. A pair of NFC teams top Scouts Inc.'s rankings of the playoff defenses. Dallas, armed with the top linebackers, and Green Bay, which features one of the best DB units, are tied for the top spot.
Scouts Inc. ranked the 12 playoff teams by position on a scale of 1-12, with one being the best. After adding the points, here are the overall results, with lowest score being the best.
Also, you can read the individual position breakdowns here:
Defensive Line | Linebackers | Defensive backs | Special teams

Getting Defensive Team
DL LB DB Total
1. Dallas Cowboys 5 1 6 12
1. Green Bay Packers 6 4 2 12
3. San Diego Chargers 4 2 7 13
4. New England Patriots 2 8 4 14
5. Indianapolis Colts 11 6 1 18
5. Seattle Seahawks 8 5 5 18
7. Pittsburgh Steelers 9 3 8 20
8. Tennessee Titans 3 7 11 21
9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 12 9 3 24
10. New York Giants 1 12 12 25
11. Jacksonville Jaguars 7 11 9 27
12. Washington Redskins 10 10 10 30 Scouts Inc. watches games, breaks down film and studies football from all angles for ESPN.com.
Scouts INC. need to look at the stats before they stick their foot in their mouth. Here are how the playoff teams ranked in overall defense. Scouts INC. defensive rankings don't match how these defenses actually performed.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
3. Indianapolis Colts
4. New England Patriots
5. Tennessee Titians
7. New York Giants
8. Washington Redskins
9. Dallas Cowboys
11. Green Bay Packers
12. Jacksonville Jaguars
14. San Diego Chargers
15. Seattle Seahawks

Re: Scouts Inc. ranks the playoff coaches

Well I got them to fix it:

4. Washington Redskins: Joe Gibbs is one of the best coaches of all time, and this season he has done a great job of managing his team down the stretch in the wake of the Sean Taylor tragedy. However, his clock management has not been great and there are times when it appears the game has passed him by. Gibbs has two excellent sidekicks, though, in offensive coordinator Al Saunders and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Gibbs has never been great as a delegator, so it is important that he does not try to be too hands-on in the postseason and allows his coaches to do their jobs, and if he does that, the Redskins will be a dangerous team in the playoffs.

A little ticked that they don't even acknowledge that he's in the HOF. And the "never been great as a delegator" comment is so off base it's laughable. But I'll save those battles for another day.

It's still wrong, he's still ranked #4 and all of their crap about him not being a great delegator is in there. All they did was remove ONE of their idiotic statements that were wrong.

Kudos for setting them straight. At least now they have their facts straight. The Gibbs being a bad delegator is way wrong, but it's an opinion, not a fact. You set them straight on the facts, but it's up to them to come up with valid opinions - and they failed.

The fact is that their opinions are wrong.

#4: Joe Gibbs is one of the best coaches of all time and will eventually be in the Hall of Fame, and this season he has done a great job of managing his team down the stretch in the wake of the Sean Taylor tragedy. However, his clock management has not been great and there are times when it appears the game has passed him by. Gibbs has two excellent sidekicks, though, in offensive coordinator Al Saunders and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Gibbs has never been great as a delegator, so it is important that he does not try to be too hands-on in the postseason and allows his coaches to do their jobs, and if he does that, the Redskins will be a dangerous team in the playoffs.[/QUOTE]

Yes, he has done a wonderful job such as calling timeouts he doesn't have and costing his teams game. But he's in the Hall of Fame, its ok!

Why don't you crawl back under whatever rock you came from. I'm calling about 3 more posts before the big goodbye...

Re: Scouts Inc. ranks the playoff coaches

Let's be clear here that this was written by someone from Scouts Inc. and hosted by ESPN. Not written by ESPN.

Either way, doesn't matter I suppose.

I agree, Scouts Inc has been giving us great content for years but stupid ESPN keeps messing it up.

It's funny how they make Gibbs seem like a complete ego-maniac who wants to call all the plays on both sides of the ball and who refuses to give up control to the very people that he hired. It seems like the writer watched maybe 2 '07 redskins games and some highlights and then formed an opinion.
