    What I don't get is why Fisher doesn't realise Schwartz's moneyball defence doesn't work. You can't just sit back and play it by statistics. If you look at the great defences in the NFL today they're all playmaking defences, taking chances, blitzing, stunting, mixing up coverages, etc. We should do the same, I certainly believe we have the people for it.

    This is one aspect of the "personnel groupings" I'm referring to. I am in no way giving Fisher a pass on this Collins/Volek issue. I am a little harder on Chow because IMO we have seen NO improvement in point production since he has come on board. We've heard alot of excuses, alot of "we're going to have to ....blah...blah...blah.." but still no increase in scoring.

    I think it is naive to believe Chow wasn't strongly involved with the decision to bring Collins in. It has been my observation that Fisher delegates alot of decision making to his coordinators. I agree that he ultimately he must answer, but he is a good HEAD COACH. IMO, his major coaching weakness is that he allows a lower level of accountability from his staff than he should.

    cause even Les Steckel could move the team between the 20s. Setting up Col Klank for one of his patented 33 yard FGs that Fisher was so in love with.

    Chow has not even shown that he can get the ball into Baroinas expanded FG range much less put the ball in the EZ.

    plus people seem to like VY and Chow is almost completly Schwartzified at this point, and once you get Schwartzed you never go back.

    Come now, Gunny, you can't blame a bad throw on Vince, obviously Chow had instructed him to throw the fade no matter what, oh and also that he should throw it short no matter what. So you can see it was obviously a bad call from Chow :sad2:

    btw, that was sarcasm in case anyone missed it...
