COB Posted November 14, 2008 Report Share Posted November 14, 2008 I was listening to Marty Schottenheimer on Sirius yesterday. They were talking about why the Raiders suck so bad, and also why the Cowboys haven't won a playoff game since 1996. The question was asked what is the predominant thing here in these organizations that is hurting them. I wrote down what he said. My apologies to all other drivers on I-65 about 50 miles south of Chicago, my swerving was likely horrifying, but I wanted to get it down word for word. Here's the quote from Marty Schottenheimer, a coach I hold in the highest esteem not for his Xs and Os, but for his grasp of the intangibles, his ability to mold pro athletes into a team:"If you want a recipe for failing, put your players in a position where they don't know where the buck stops. And if they don't, it creates a multitude of potential scenarios, none of which can be positive for the football team, if it's not the head coach."We are f**king doomed.
