Could you imagine some short years later after winning the Super Bowl the Eagles would end up being the most mismanaged and dysfunctional team in the NFL

"MOST" is a big word in the NFC East.

How about the raiders finally getting to the bowl only to get stomped by their ex coach that they traded away and have endured 20 years of shiat since.

They like hiring their old coaches.  Remember Art Shell had a second go-round.

Did not watch. Was it more or less insufferable than Campbell's Lions intro presser? 🤔

so they are going to put in systems that are easy to learn but hard to figure out? why hasn't anyone else thought of that?

He didn't come off as an insufferable douche. Just as someone who had no idea what he's doing.

There's a link a few down with about 40 seconds from it.

/he's clearly very uncomfortable with speaking to large groups of the press
//I'm not gonna say a guy can't do a job because he isn't a great public speaker on what seems to have been his first public speech

Yeah, we're doomed.  At least the Sixers and Flyers are showing some real promise this year.  As a bonus, the Phillies shocked all of us by signing Realmuto to a five year deal.

Go Birds!

Also, media coach-speak requires a different type of speaking than you would use to players.

It's like if you're an expert in your field and you're interviewing for a job with a HR screener. You don't know how much the HR person knows, so you feel like you have to dumb what you're saying down so they'll follow, but you don't want to seem stupid, so you can't dumb it down too much...basically, you can get in your own head and psych yourself out trying to play to the audience because you don't know exactly how much to show you know.

Coachspeak requires that you provide soundbites that project confidence in your team when you've yet to so much as meet most of your team. It requires that you explain your vision without actually talking about any specifics that might tip your hand. Basically, it's all about bullsh*tting, and honest people who are good at what they do can have a hard time at it. But when they talk to professionals in their field where they don't have to worry about saying too much or too little, they're at ease.

The Texans have turned over football operations to a chaplain who seems hellbent on hiring Christians regardless of qualifications, they've hired a perennial assistant coach whose players have regularly performed awful (including leading KC's WRs to the only season where a team's WRs scored zero TDs in an entire season) to be their head coach, and they alienated their generational quality QB so much that he's demanding a trade and refusing to play for the team. I'd say they're the most mismanaged and dysfunctional team in the NFL.

Slightly off-topic but relevant at the same time. I am this way. I work in a highly technical field and absolutely loathe and lock up speaking to large groups outside of my small team. I have a friend that is self-employed as a "Data Presenter" and makes a LOT of money doing it. He meets with all kinds of teams of nerds that can't talk to regular people, figures out what needs to be said, and then does the presentation to whoever it is that the nerds couldn't talk to effectively.

Just wait the AI in John Madden football may just be better than some coaches that are coaching now.
