JewDago Posted January 6, 2009 Report Share Posted January 6, 2009 Though there's more to the article than this, one section in particular stood out and scares me to death: 4. Tell me a few of the worst things about Eric Mangini that we Clevelanders should be thinking about as he sits as the reported frontrunner for the Cleveland coaching job. The Legend of Cecilio Guante - I don’t think demonstrative, fiery or inspiring would be words that Brownies fans associated with Romeo Crennel (call me out if I’m wrong). This is good, because you sure as heck aren’t going to be using any of those adjectives to describe Mangini . I think we as a collective lot of sports fans tend to go too far in equating facial expressions and sideline decible levels (see: Gruden, Cowher) to success. That said, I like those types. Should Mangini take the helm in Cleveland, get ready for a consistently blank expression that conveys a sense that everything is happening to him, and he is powerless to control or alter any of those circumstances (like maybe through coaching or something). Oh yes, and you can also look forward to incredibly questionable decisions like going for it on fourth-and-two from your own 20, down a touchdown on the road with 2:21 on the clock and three timeouts remaining. Sorry, sometimes bold and italics are the only ways to appropriately convey disgust in such forums. You can also read about other gems from the Jets-Seattle disaster to get a feel for what you might have coming. TheJetsBlog.com - His press conferences reveal nothing so don’t expect to glean a lot from his sitdowns with the press. He also limits the time that writers can watch practices during the season, which chafed at the press some. His scheme isn’t very savvy in terms of blitzing, so look for a bend-don’t-break style defense … it’s not always fun. the whole article is here: http://www.waitingfornextyear.com/?p=6308#more-6308 the more i find out, the less i want mangini and would prefer anyone in his place. he sounds very rac-ish. and, of course, he's who we're gonna get.
