Giving all the credit to Belicheck for the Patsies success is kind of like giving Erik Spoelstra credit for the Heat making the NBA Finals. When you have one of the best players of all time playing the most important position, a lot of that takes care of itself. This season in particular I think shows the flaws in Belicheck's game, even moreso as a GM/talent evaluator. He put that defense together and he just assumes he can sign everyone's shitty/disgruntled players and they will just work. How's that Ochocinco signing going?
But yeah, anyone who wants Tomlin gone is kind of an idiot. Dude isn't a master in-game coach, but he gets the players ready and deviates to his assistants to keep the gameplans in place. You could argue he is too trusting of his assistants, but Tomlin wasn't brought in here because of his schemes. He was hired because he's a leader. Leave the scheming to the coordinators, Head Coaches get too much credit/blame when a team is playing very well or very poorly.
Anyone who wants Tomlin gone is "kind of an idiot"? If you're going to be a prick, at least don't beat around the bush. BTW, it's "delegate," not "deviate."
Anyway, if you want to get into personnel decisions, Tomlin is pedestrian/borderline terrible. You've already acknowledged he isn't much of an in-game coach (which should be a min. qual. of any NFL-caliber HC, IMO).
If he's "deviating" to his assistants to keep the game plan in place, that suggests he created the game plan. For how many years have we been bitching about the offense's game plan?
In terms of being a leader, who does he inspire? Ben doesn't listen to him. Arians doesn't either. The team has come out flat and unprepared numerous times during his tenure.
But if you like coach speak, he's your man.
