A thought experiment. Which coach was the closest to long term success and what would it have taken that group to get there? 

 

Fun facts- 

 

Most games coached- Romeo Crennel at 64 second east butch Davis at 58. The golden era of winning and stability since our reincarnation, from 01-08. A winning percentage of .414 and .375 and .175 from Robiskie. 

 

Highest overall winning percentage was Gregg William's at .625. Though not a regime I put him for the 3g truthers. 

Coaches over 11 wins? 

2. Davis and Crennel.

 

 

 

Excluding Stephaski.

Romeo, because 2007 we went 10-6 with some really young talent at very key positions. We had our Franchise LT, a very young Pro Bowl QB, who if he's able to progress to the next step, becomes a franchise cornerstone, then you have Braylon and KWII who were high 1st Rounders and Pro Bowlers, and our entire OL looked good with great production from the running game.

IF Anderception and company make those next strides offensively, that's a decade of offensive dominance and you then give you defensive "genius" HC some ammo to go out and add to that unit.

I’d say Butch.

The talent wasn’t great, and he should have never been the GM, but he could coach and actually won games.

Yep butch is the only answer. But he shouldn’t have been GM. 
 

mangini had something special but again screwed it up because he wanted front office power. 
 

i will go to my grave thinking chudd could have been good if he was given the chance.

Derrick Anderson was a phony pro bowler. He would have never improved. He never even shown a glimpse of that talent again. He just chucked it deep.

I forgot you liked Brady Quinn.

Anderception forever.

I liked Quinn in a sexual way. Not as a QB. Yuck.

I’ll take sleeper pick Chud. He kinda had a game plan every week but he was caught in a rock and a hard place with no QB, no organizational commitment, and an inherited team of turds.

Chudzinksi never got a fair shot, IMO. But still, the answer is Butch.

This is a fun question to ponder.

Butch Davis was the closest, imo. If he has a competent GM to find talent and keep his excesses in check and a healthy Tim Couch, that team would have been set up really nice, imo. He had them playing well, they just needed more talent (imagine "Run Portis, Run!")

The corpse of mcgahee as his lead horse didn't help.

The next question would be who had the best roster. 

Imo, it could be recency bias but it would be Gregg or Freddie 

Then Crennel.
