Just what is a Head Coach's job anyway...?

    IMO...a head coach is supposed to put his team in a position to win tight and important games....(and they're all important..)

    That means the coach is supposed to call the "right" offensive play for the right situation.

    -The head coach is supposed to be able to make game time adjustments.

    -The head coach is supposed to be able to manage the game clock.

    -The head coach is supposed to game plan the week before the game to expose the other teams weaknesses, thereby putting his own team in a position to win...

    -A head coach is supposed to inspire and motivate his team...

    -A head coach should command the respect of his players and his staff...

    -A head coach is supposed to practice and have his team ready for the game...

    These are only a few things...there are other things....

    Honestly assess whether Mike Sherman meets ANY of these criteria for a good head coach in the National Football League....

    I'll comment on just a few of the topics you mentioned...

    Game clock:

    HORRENDOUS vs. Cle, but other than that I haven't seen many issues w/ that this year...if anything, I think the infamous draw play was called w/ the game clock in mind.

    Game plan the week before, expose other weaknesses, motivation, etc:

    The 17-0 start suggest that the team was motivated, well prepared, etc.

    2nd half stunk, though. Did the play calling get conservative? By my count, in the 2nd half, the Packers passed 18 times, and ran it 7 times. Taken at face value, those #s suggest the Packers weren't too conservative. Keep in mind the D played poorly as well.
