What do ya think?

While I am sure he COULD do the job, I am also equally sure that he will NOT do the job. For Marty, that would be a pay grade that he would consider beneath him. He is vieing for a management job, GM or VP somewhere, he will not accept a coordinator position.

On a side note, I remember all the dumb moves he made in a game. I remember him not using the best short yardage running back in history in obvious places for him to use them. I remember the blunders he made, all one needs to do is look back at San Diego's playoff game to remember those for yourself.

Sorry, Marty would make a good GM or VP, but I want him no where close to calling plays on the field.

In a playoff game, one that will likely be decided by points less than a touchdown. Going for it on 4th and 11 when within field goal range, is a coaching call. Marty made that call.

Those are the kinds of decisions he made all the time at Kansas City that kept us from the big game during the early 90s.

Marty could win away as well. As far as coaches go, there is no doubt he is better than our current coach. However, play calling decisions were not his best suit. There is no doubt that he can develop talent and make good decisions about players though and with t in mind, I would rather see him as General Manager or Vice President.

I just feel that he is too much a liability when it comes to coaching the team on the field. That is just my opinion though.

So you are telling me that Marty has ahd all the talent to make the playoffs SEVERAL times, yet he was not a good enough coach to win a playoff game. You put that much emphasis on gameday coaching?? Maybe if a few of those FG's were TD's then one call would not have made a difference. I think that waaaaay too many people blame Marty for not winning in the playoffs. When are some of these players going to be accountable for not executing (which also happened in that same playoff game)

Yes, I actually do when it comes to playoff games. When you get into the playoffs you are playing teams that are in most cases as good, or even better than you are.

Making the right decisions in the game is critical to whether you are going to advance to the next round. Blow a decision in a regular season game, you still have other games in which you can win to help make the playoffs. Blow a decision in the playoffs and your season is over.

Yeah, it does come down to players making those plays, but when the coach says "4th down and 11, lets go for it" then that decision is clearly the coaches and NOT the players. There was no reason to not go for the points on the board at that point. It was a bad decision, and it is the kind of decision that Marty has been known to make in the playoffs. That is something he lives with.

Now, having said that, I would still take Marty as a head coach over Edwards if there was no one else to get to do the job, I am just not convinced of his playoff decision making.

Marty is more of a DC then an OC.

I guess I just have a hard time buying that a playoff loss is the coachs fault when most of the time the "tough coaching decisions" are presented due to a players lack of execution. Was there not a flat out dropped ball that ended that playoff game last year?? No one says that, they blame it on the coach?? Fair or not, it is usually the coach that gets blamed first. I would happily take Marty because even with first round playoff losses, there were some wins to enjoy. This year...a few records and a couple of good times (first half of the season) but Herm dropped the ball a few times this year. (Oakland game, Colts game)

I almost hate to agree with you and Marty, but how in the hell did DJ drop that interception that would have won us the game against the Jets?

I hope he grows into the force everyone has been talking about, but all I see from him now is speed.

That is not an all around good line backer.
