    This guy can coach, and for those who demand displays of emotion, he'll satisfy them as well.

    Incidentally, God Bless Mike Sherman, and best wishes in the future for him.

    I have also heard that even though he is a defensive guy he does display some knowledge of Offense.

    yeah, cuz he beat the undefeated world champ patriots as interim coach at Miami using offense, not defnese to beat them surprisingly. Bates is a genius, me thinks. i like him. if he wasnt so old, i would make babies with him.

    The great offensive coordinators depend on great QB's. Great defensive coordinators depend on great TEAM defenders. I'd love to see the Pack return to being a great defensive team that tackles hard and gets off the field on 3rd downs. Add a punishing running game and we're back to the Championship Game.

    I wonder who Jim Bates would hire as offensive coordinator?
    Anybody out there know who is in his "good old boy" network?
    Where has he coached? Who has he coached with?
    Etc. etc. ad infinitum!

    I think he would be a great choice if does in fact have defensive experience along with a knowledge of the offense.

    Bates might hire Linehan from Miami...or possibly Mooch..but I doubt it.

    Should try to hire Eric Mangini as DC from NE...

    JB...I mentioned in a different thread that I thought he WOULD be hired for the job because he was being interviewed last. I can see the advantages/disadvantages of both.

    I'm following DePacks line of thinking on this one.
