In a year where personnel is thin at corner, and question marks all over on D, it has become apparent GERG needs to coach his ass off this year. Can he? I asked myself that question and then decided to revisit his track record. NOT ENCOURAGING. Defensive stats at 3 of his last 4 stops (not including his cup of coffee at Texas} look really quite bad on paper when you look at progress from when he took over. Except for the Broncos he showed big declines from where the team was on D when he took over. Huge drop when he took over DC at Jets. Chiefs got worse on D the 3 yrs he was there. Syracuse's D fell into the abyss at bottom of Big East (I know he was head coach, but sheesh). Is it possible that not only is he not a good coach. Could he be a bad coach? I hope this trend doesn't continue with him. But numbers dont lie. I hope you guys can show me I'm wrong.
I think you will get your wish.
