    Yeah, it doesn't look like it was calculated decision.

    It was calculated alright- to sell hope and change to the roaring riot dick sucks that hear Cris Collinsworth say analytics and decide that's the wave of the now.

    On Rhule good on somethings bad on others... We'll see said the zen master

    So far, everything I've read about him makes him sound like more of an old school throwback. I haven't found anything in terms of analytics that differentiates him from other coaches.

    It's probably never great to be in an arms race with Dave Gettleman.

    You are correct. That’s been discussed quite a bit. He begrudgingly installed RPO’s at Baylor, and they worked.

    By the way, there are several pretty quality names either unemployed or probably gettable from the XFL world. Good assistants who worked with Matt in New York:

    I’m actually happy about the hire. His personality reminds me a lot of John Fox. He’s not the wet napkin that Ron was for a decade. To me, it appears he’s going to be running a lot of the football operations, or at least he will be deciding who runs what. He coached on the 2012 Coughlin staff, a great place to grow as a pro coach. Worked with guys in the trenches, and they all rave about him to this day. I’m done worrying about the owner. He’s a rich guy who is spending money. Matt’s personality will drown all that out. Ron wasn’t exactly a transformational personality.

    Just establish your staff, get your front office in order, start winning some fucking division games.

    And yes, he thinks analytics people generally fucking stupid. He’s got my vote.

    Tepper says Rhule is the guy to build this team for the next 30 to 40 years. That seems like a reasonable goal.

    I stand corrected having looked at it more now, I assumed the sports science stuff was part of a larger WE LOVE STATS mindset. Now the chip Kelly comment makes sense.

    The riot are still dick sucks though
