Please excuse me if you think I am a homer, but Mr. Lombardi has me a little steamed. You see, his current article lambastes Todd Haley. Why? because Coach Haley yells at his players and gets upset when things go wrong.
Hmmmm, I know some really successful coaches who do that and they seem to get the best from their players: Parcells, Coughlin, and even Cower to name a few.
Herm Edwards was the poster child for being calm under pressure, where did that get him, and Romeo Crennel, and Rod Marrinelli and thier teams?
Using his argument, one would say that the Indianapolis Colts have been this great for so long, because Tony Dungy was so calm? Do you believe that for one minute?
If anything, the Chiefs have needed a hard nosed coach ever since Marty left. Haley is the perfect coach for the Chiefs, and I see the players falling in line. Mr. Lombardi is trying to create a story where none exists, in fact he admits that “I have not been in the locker room, nor have I talked to Chief players.” Then why bother us Lombardi? Just shut up.
