What do they know?...........we good!
Unfortunate. Time will tell but right now Schiano > Butler in my eyes.
Perfect spot for him I dislike both!!!!!!
Kevin Greene is available for the OLBs.....oh I almost forgot......we good!
I'm an Ohio State fan. I'm not shedding any tears over Greg Schiano leaving.
Defense was a mess last year. Not all of it was Schiano's fault. Bosa getting hurt, turnover at LB and DB, etc.
However, he stubbornly stuck with a system that wasn't compatible with the players available. He played a lot of man/cover 1 with new guys at DB and LB and we gave up a ton of big plays. Almost team we played last year had someone who had a big game.
I think Belichick hired him because 1) he'll do whatever Belichick tells him to do and 2) he's still a decent football mind.
Schiano a failed NFL HC, and I don't think he was ever a NFL DC before. Big deal if New England got him .
That is so short sighted, I don't even know where to begin. And I don't even want to keep this discussion going since Schiano is now a Patriot. No longer Steeler news.
Butler's resume compared to Schiano's resume is laughable.
Schiano was the DC for the University of Miami in 1999 and 2000. Check out those defensive rosters, a few names you may recognize.
Sure he flamed out in Tampa. It was a bad team when he got there and didn't have enough time to turn it around.
I'm sure there are valid criticisms of his defense at Ohio State but in the end his success there speaks volumes.
What is the most important factor, which some may not realize, is the pipeline of players from Rutgers to the New England Patriots. Players scouted, recruited and coached by Schiano which have helped the Patriots win another 3 super bowls. Ryan, Harmon, Devin and now Jason McCourty. All DBs. What's our biggest weakness again?
Belichick trusts Schiano. Tomlin's loyalty is to Butler. I just can't see how keeping Butler around helps us in 2019. Hope I'm wrong, but pretty sure I am not.
Actually it was never Steelers news.
We're talking about the NFL, I don't care what Schiano did in college . Belichick hired him because they're friends, the Steelers were never interested in him, so it's a moot point.
I get the feeling that coordinators in New England don't do much anyway. Well maybe McDaniels but I get the impression Belicheck runs the defense.
