    Jesus Christ you guys are so blinded by balls in your face you can't read anymore. Where did I say MM was the wrong man for the job? Where did I say you shouldn't get a chance because you've never been a headcoach.

    digs said to look at the man's record and I did. He has an average record at best as OC and none as head coach. That doesn't mean he shouldn't have a shot if TT thinks he's right for the job.

    Do you guys follow TT around the grocery store to make sure he doesn't slip on a banana peel?

    Neither did he have the talent to reach those heights...as did Holmgren. Kinda like going to a cake baking contest and wondering why the mud pie didn't win the ribbon over Grandma's delicious spice cake made from scratch.

    De

    All I asked you was if you thought this thread would turn into an age argument or general manager argument. You're the one that twists everything into me accusing you of picking TT.

    As for your blow up doll comment, well whatever, I guess that's just your way! It's unacceptable, but since you are a NFL commissioner, us less seasoned poster have to accept the abuse.

    Carry on De - it's all good!

    Jim Bates was confident that his interview went well enough that the job would be his. He thought he was the top candidate going in and he thought his interview was great. He thought he had the job. Thompson didn't treat him bad. Thompson just hired another guy. I still don't get choosing McCarthy over Bates. McCarthy is slowly winning me over with his attitude and his approach but Bates already had my respect.

    You got that right. I am in one pissy mood. Can't get projects out the door. Clients use me as their personal bank....extending their own line of credit and yesterday I found out I need to replace my entire HVAC system and hotwater heater in my home. Add that on top of paying 80 grand in tuition this year and my man-gina is in constant need of maxi-pads.

    That's right. I'm not ashamed to admit it :oops:

    That's why you're the best De.

    80K in tuition? How many kids are in college?

    To be devil's advocate, how do you know that MM isn't one of those guys and how do you know that Jim Bates is?

    BTW....you're already labeled!! :wink:

    Every GM has a feel for the guy they want. The great gm's hire outstanding people because it's part of what makes them great. They not only recognize great talent, they attract it. Only time will tell whether Jim Bates would have been the better choice over Mike McCarthy. As with everything else with TT, I'm on a "wait and see" mode right now. It's too early to tell where this franchise is going or how good it's going to be.

    I did like Jim Bates though and would not have minded it if he would have been chosen as the head coach.

    McCarthy strikes me as a fellow who will not suffer fools gladly, and will demand your bes every time you set foot on the field, be it practice or a game.

    Time won't tell because if Jim would have been better regardless of how poor our record is the next three seasons, no one can accurately say Jim would have been better than McCarthy.

    We won't ever know. All we can do is wonder how good Bates would have been in the same position McCarthy is in and hope McCarthy gets us a few SB rings in the next couple years. NO PRESSURE :)
