    Sad to see Marty Schottenheimer have to live his last days with Alzheimer's.  He was a great coach and it's too bad he didn't break through and win a Super Bowl.


    I went to school and played football with Brian Schottenheimer.  He was a year younger than me.  Nice enough kid.  Anyways, my dad was a raving lunatic about the Browns and used to go up to him at games and criticize his play calling, mostly on the defensive side of the ball, for being too soft in coverage with a lead.  Marty apparently took it in stride.  He was a nice guy.  My dad, less so.

    Yeah he was much older than me (45 when he had me) so he was steeped in the winning culture of the 50's and 60's Browns.  The late 80's were a brief shining light in an otherwise dismal half century.

    Ha, I'm sure I was pretty obnoxious myself in the 90's while he was coaching the Chiefs.  Probably a good thing I didn't get the opportunity to criticize him in person.

    I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.

    For this reason alone, I'm glad I was in my mid '20s before the Patriots started winning. I can vividly remember how much the late '80s / early '90s sucked. 

    Same for the Red Sox.

    I remember feeling sorry for the Pats for years.  Eason, Grogan, etc. all looked fairly hapless.  Although that snow plow game against the Dolphins was disappointing.  I wasn't a fan of the Dolphins, but wanted to the Bears to lose the SB and knew the Pats had no chance.

    How does one spit on this guy?  He was first rate, an A+ and won everywhere he went.  No he didn't win the SB, but who cares.  There are so many factors and impediments.  Anyone who dogs out Marty (besides my dad) is a jerkoff.

    I remember when I first started watching football, he gave his "There's a gleam" speech.  He was an amazing pep talk/philosopher of the game.

    You're misremembering.
    The snow plow game was a regular season game in Foxboro that Pats won 3-0 (1982 or 83)
    Pats beat the Dolphins in the 85 (January 86) AFC championship game in sunny Miami (31-14 if I recall final score). The "Squish the fish" game.

    Ah you're right. I was conflating two games.  I guess it makes sense that the game would be in Miami considering their record that year.

    Andy Reid’s son at it again

    god damn bro... wtf

    i hope the kid pulls thru

    take that fuckers keys away for good

    how many chances? Brother passed away, stay the fuck off the road, selfish

    get loaded all day everyday... at your house

    I think Andy seams like a solid guy, but Tough Love isn’t in his vocabulary ... Kids on his coaching staff, Nepotism is a poison 

    I also think Eric Bienemys past is preventing his HC status. 

    I Believe in 2nd, even third & 4th ones... but some things are a lil tough to look past

    again... hope the families involved can walk away with all members involved


  • PoncierPoncier Posts: 12,162
    Yeah, the son needs to be fired from the coaching staff immediately.

    Feel badly for Big Andy.  I'm sure he, as well as most NFL coaches, was an absent father, but having these two fucking knuckleheads as sons cannot be easy.  Flush that fucking turd.
