Mangini knew zilch about offense and was another in our line of coaches that wanted to win with "hard nosed defense" and a ball control offense. Which is a philosophy I can't get in line with.
Mangini also signed a bunch of aging vets who weren't ever really good.. they were just character guys. Mangini employed a "doghouse" which kept are players that actually had physical ability off the field.
He thought he could out scheme everyone..
He was corny and fake tough..
His descision making was terrible.
He was an asshole to players.
And I'll never forget that article I read that was written by an ex player in our locker room during TC which told the detailed stories on how Mangini was insane.
Add to that a horrible win loss record... and the fact that he was fired by the Jets for all the same reasons. .
Sums up why he was awful and I hated him.
To be honest the only coach I have really liked was chud.. because at least he did what he said..
He said we would be an attacking team on both sides of the ball.. and we ended the year with a bad record but 6-7 pro bowlers because he put our people in a position to play well.. he just needed time
