    Until last week, he hadn't exactly set the world on fire against Carolina.

    We shall see.

    I think he gets handled.

    I'd forgotten how much I missed the weekly Mike Vick debates between AF and the rest of SportsJournalists.com.
  4. Herm has horrible clock management, and fairly horrible decision making. He motivates as well as does Bill Cowher with half the talent as a head coach. I like what he has to say much of the time, but he is just overmatched week in and week out. Someone mentioned him not knowing the down and distance earlier in the thread, in the same game, he wasted about a minute and a half at the end of the game when the team was still in it, and when they were down by ten with a minute and a half to play from the opponant 10 in a fourth and goal, the moron went for it, while needing two scores, a TD and a field goal (it is actually a current trend in the NFL these days and I pull my hair out every time I see it happening). He really isn;t all that good a coach. A good motivator, but not a coach.
  5. profootballtalk is ridiculous for pointing a finger strictly at herm.... vermeil's other god son, carl peterson, also threw vermeil under a bus... and profootballtalk needs to be honest and say: "vermeil read jason whitlock's thursday column and was irate after reading what was on the chiefs' official web site blasting vermeil and the vermeil offense."

    to put this all on herm is a total joke. it's herm and peterson.

    Whitlock is right. Peterson should get some of the blame, but Herm deserves plenty.

    Now tell us why you're leaving ESPN.com.

    I'm sure most people want to see Vick have 3-4 good games in a row before they break out their "Vick's the greatest" columns again.

    Seriosuly, it's one game. Vick's had great Septembers before then faded. Let's see if he can put together two good games. You know Tampa Bay has got to play a more inspired game this week, given what they did (or didn't do, actually) last week.

    Before we start calling this `` a great September'' or even ``a great game'' by Vick, a little reality check:

    M.Vick 22 10 140 1/7 2 34 0 96.8

    M.Vick 7 48 6.9 24 0

    Well under 50 percent and only 140 yards passing, no interceptions, very good numbers running. Great? Whatever.

    Tampa is going to come out pissed off and destroy Vick and Co.

    i have no idea who will win, but the bucs (and d-coordinator monte kiffin) have had vick's number in the past few years.

    Back to Herm: He's just opening the first letter that tells him to blame everything on the predecessor.

    Near the end of the season, he'll get around to opening the second letter.
