    bates 10x greater than wannstedt.

    i dont know how many of you out there feel the same way, but i like this bates guy. the excitement he brings to the players on this team speaks volumes. i hope he has the opportunity to have a HC job here in Miami or somewhere, i think a guy like him deserves it. he reminds me of dick vermeil.

    I love his energy, but I think the biggest thing is he is letting his coaches coach! I think Wanny handcuffed them all by making them play his way. The offense has opened up (Trestman??) the O-line has played better ETC...

    I agree that the team just seems to have more energy with Wanny gone. We are actually passing on 1st down and throwing stuff in to throw defenses off a little. I was so tired of seeing Wanny run, run, and more run offense. Good riddance!!!

    A car that is only 10X better than a Yugo still isnt gonna win any races.

    Bates is IMMEASURABLY better than Wannabe...and I think Saban is even better still.

    [Disclaimer] I think Jim Bates has been solid as an interim HC. I am not Anti-Bates. I repeat, I am not Anti-Bates. [/Disclaimer]

    Im a bit wary of peoples knee-jerk reactions to Jim Bates. Sure, Bates has been a breath of fresh air, but is he really the answer to all our problems? The last time he was the head coach of any football team was 20 years ago - in the USFL. There were numerous times over the last two years that people were calling for his head after we gave up big leads late in the year.

    Its easy to be a fan favorite when you are replacing the most hated coach in team history - however it doesnt mean that you have the necessary credentials to lead the team fulltime. After the roller-coaster-ride that Death Spiral Dave led us on over the last four years, I would be very hesitant to give Jim Bates the job based on a last-gasp victory over the Patriots.

    My questions to Jim Bates would be this:

    1. Are you going to show loyalty to the guys that need to be replaced on the offensive staff? I would worry that he may show loyalty to guys like Tony Wise and Chris Foerster and keep them.

    Now, my personal opinion of what his answer would be is that he would make changes. I believe he would make Trestman the OC and promote Dellenbach to OL coach. Of course, I really have no basis other than a gut feeling to think that.

    2. I'm a little concerned that he let a player twist his arm into going against a decision he had previously made. Why did he let Sammy Knight's fit dictate what he did with Yeremiah Bell? Is this something that would be a one time instance, or is this a potential problem that will come to light down the road? Jim came up with the idea to play Yeremiah Bell 1 quarter at strong safety and 1 quarter at free safety, and he let a veteran player's outburst get to him, changing his mind. One thing I know about Nick Saban is this. That would have never happened under his watch. I'm just concerned that Jim may be a little to buddy, buddy with his players. Not to the extent that Dave was, but enough that it is a sign of concern.

    No one said he is god....I just happen to think he is infinitely better than Wannstedt....which he is
