futurebengal08 Posted December 5, 2008 Report Share Posted December 5, 2008 Good might be overstating it, but Kiewan could not even start on this team BEFORE we had the young talent here. We all know why - linebacker speed, couldn't even stick with slot receivers, etc. And I know the Colts defensive backs aren't exactly all-star caliber, but still..Does that not reveal a weakness in the coaches on this team? Yes, Bresnahan is gone, but it's not like Zimmer blew up his entire scheme. And anyway, ML is supposed to be the defensive mastermind on this team. IMO, this shows why this team will never be CONSISTENTLY competitive with Marvin at the helm. He can't motivate. And he can't fit a scheme to his players, and it's been shown over and over that he can't fit his players into a scheme.Why not evaluate the talent that we have, the PLAYERS that we have, and decide what kind of defense we can run? It's evident that this team will never be good under Marvin. He cannot exploit the talent in players the way that superior coaches (Tony Dungy) can.(of course, I realize this point is moot if the management is factored in)Thoughts?
