How do we feel about Eric Mangini?

Ralph.C : 11/14/2017 1:09 pm
Yes, his record as a head coach is not good (3347 .413) but he didn't exactly have talented teams. He knows football and he just might have learned enough to succeed in his next go 'round. He's only 46 and he'd inherit a group of vets - including Eli - who he might be able to turn around right away.

his failures is that he's a crappy head coach and should find another line of work.

Mangina? NO
Not Irish  
arniefez : 11/14/2017 2:35 pm : link
if he was Irish he'd be a serious candidate. Not saying the next coach will be Irish or that his staff will be loaded with Irish people. Just saying that if Mangini was Irish he'd have a shot.
oh shut up Randal

Think he s a good coach  
joeinpa : 11/14/2017 2:36 pm : link
But I don t think it will happen
Why are fans discussing a new HC?  
mrvax : 11/14/2017 2:41 pm : link
Silly. Really. You should be asking about the next GM who will select the new HC.

So do I. And I'm not saying he's the guy for the job but I'd interview him.

Tom: If you think this is the stupidest idea ever expressed on BBI then you haven't read much BBI.

You guys don't know that he sucks. You know his teams haven't done well but they weren't good teams.

He's intelligent and at 46 he's probably hungry for another shot.

You guys wouldn't have wanted Little Bill after Cleveland either.

He's worth an interview and evaluation.

arniefez : 11/14/2017 2:45 pm : link
Seriously? You think John & Chris Mara are going to hire a new GM and that guy is going to hire a new head coach and coaching staff? Do you follow the Giants?

like McDaniels, Crennel, Weis, and everybody else who tried and failed to make it outside of New England. By the way, Patricia is no different.

Have some friggin dignity people
So, there's no chance he can be better this time around?  
Ralph.C : 11/14/2017 4:00 pm : link
Again, I'm not saying that I want him. I'm just saying that a 46-year-old intelligent guy with coaching experience might be worth a look.

People said that no players would come and play for Coughlin because players hated him too. Coughlin evolved into a click below a "players coach" and won 2 Super Bowls.

I'm going to put it out there and say that his name comes up at some point.

We'll see.
Maybe if he had

a WINNING record he might have a slight chance but then again the way the team is going you never know.

Set the stage for all of Rex Ryan's successes. Ryan won with Mangini's team and the further away that he got from that, the worse they became.

He shouldn't have been hired by the Browns that soon and really hasn't had too much success since then.

Smart guy and served under Marchibroda, Parcells, Belichick and Harbaugh so there is a lot of knowledge there.

As a head coach at this point under a flagship franchise (hopefully we are that), I would say no. As a DC, I would be ok with.

record with the Jets, I felt he laid the groundwork for Rex Ryan's success. Ryan's first 2 years, Jets were playoff contenders.

He is worth considering.

but I have a bad feeling that were are in for a really bad upcoming decade of football, largely due to the rearrange deck chair strategies and unwillingness by owner to lean in on a GM/coaching combo that fosters in excellence. Reese needs to go for various reason and so does McAdoo with his lack of experience. I have a bad feeling that the scapegoat this time will be Reese and McAdoo will have to endure a new GM that will start the vicious cycle again, then McAddo will be scapegoated. I'll bet the owners are now shopping for some GM that will take McAdoo as a coach and the owners like him because he stood up to bad apple players, which is another really big concern. In my view, those guys absolutely need to go in the offseason as they quit on the team and you really cannot have that moving forward. We have a clash of peacocks and incompetence leading them.

What does this even mean? I wish it was as easy as simply choosing to pick from the "GM/coaching combo that fosters in excellence" catalog.
Tomlin won with Cowhers team  
NoPeanutz : 11/15/2017 10:13 am : link
Because Cowhers team won the hardware before he took over. In contrast, Mangini did not hand Rex a championship team. Rex built his own team. He brought in Scott, drafted Nacho (let Favre walk), brought in Santonio Holmes (who sucks, but upgraded the offense), and obviously brought some expertise to bear on coaching the defense (in contrast to Mac, under whom the NYFG offense has withered).
