66 Mike Sherman is a control freak -- it is both a strength and weakness of his as a head coach. Most head coaches are control freaks, by the way. But in the Bills hiring process, Mike Sherman simply wanted to be sure that his input was going to be respected and heard -- a pretty reasonable request. Levy would not and could not give him that assurance -- it became a deal breaker. It is foolish to ignore that Mike Sherman is in a position to be patient. He is going to collect $6.4 million dollars while he looks for the right opportunity.
Look at who Buffalo hired -- retreads without anywhere near the accomplishments of Sherman are given repeated opportunities to fail over and over.
This is not me defending Mike Sherman to you -- I hope we can move past that now that he is simply part of Packer history. Rather I am just pointing out some obvious facts about the current context.
Many are predicting that he will spend a year in the booth -- where he can collect both salaries while he rejuvenates and spends time with his family. For Christ's sake Matt Milan can get and stay employed in the NFL -- simply by shooting his mouth off as a talking head. What has he ever produced as a front office man, GM or coach? Less than nothing!
If what Bruce said is true.."That Sherman ran into control issues with Levy"....then what I can't understand is that...
Why the hell can't Sherman just be a HC without trying to be a GM too?
(and you people tear apart Holmgren for being a power hungry egomaniac!)
(I think Sherman is 100 times worse as an ****, control freak....who is power hungry and has a big ego...but it's more covert..rather than overt.)
That's why I think Sherman won't work in the NFL anymore...
