They didn't evaluate the talent on those teams. They had amazing evaluators in Newsome and Belichick doing the evaluating.
I could write another rant about Marvin right now. Just not worth it. These quote alone speaks enough for me.
" "It's tough enough when you have 11 guys, but when you have 10 guys, that makes it even harder," said free safety Madieu Williams. "They were catching us in substitutions like that the whole game. It's pretty much a chess match."
And Marvin/Chuck are utterly clueless.
"But Lewis said since the 11th guy was a defensive lineman, it had no affect on the play."
That quote from Bengals.com might be the single dumbest quote I've ever read about sports. I mean that and I'm not being dramatic. Think about that theory from an NFL head coach. It's mind boggling how bad this man manages his team.
