    At the time I remember thinking Quinn was sabotaging Caldwell via the draft. We went into Quinn’s first draft with a clear need at RB, and Quinn completely ignored it. But when you look at later drafts after Caldwell’s firing you realize Quinn was just terrible at his job and constantly left holes in the roster wide open.

    They were. Probably not at the volume Saban gets them, but they were coming.

    It's a reason why Alabama has 17 titles between 5 coaches or what not..

    bruh before Saban got there, Bama was ass and didn’t have success after they won that title in the early 90s, and they were coming off probation.,

    LSU had been in the gutter since the 50s before Saban got there in the early 2000s and started bringing in top recruits.

    LSU & Bama owe Saban for bringing their programs off life support.

    they won most of those titles while CFB was still segregated in the from the 1920s-1960s.

    they won a few in the 70s, and lucked up and won one in 92.

    Saban turned them into the monster they are today

    They weren't on life support though.... They just weren't playing for championships every 3 years.. Matter of fact, Saban won his first Bama chip with Shula's players......

    All NCAAF championships are paper championships.... Bama still won some SEC championships I think before Saban's arrival...... the fact that that the only other program that comes close to the number of chips under the same circumstances .is a storied Notre Dame program says it all...

    Saban and Bama are a match made in heaven..... Like Spurrier said, any good coach can win at Bama(paraphrasing)

    that seems like forever ago :mjcry:

    if you think about the players on this team that left have any of them excelled after leaving Detroit? Maybe Caldwell had them boys coached up to their fullest potential?

    Patricia and BoB were duchebags trying hard to be Beli without the rings. Flores and Judge are being themselves.
    Quinn was a pro personnel guy. Never had to make decisions. Only people making decisions in NE are Beli and Caserio

    Mayhew was a decent gm and i liked the attitude of the the team with Schwartz and suh. He couldn’t get it together though.

    I wouldn't call Meyhew a good GM. He was terrible with cap space and constantly missed on later round draft picks. That being said, he hit on enough picks to make a difference between being ok and being terrible - the issue is we didn't hit enough to built DEPTH. Of course his biggest fault is the pick he did not make: Aaron Donald. He might still be GM, and Caldwell still the coach, if he had made that obvious pick instead of reaching on Eric Ebron.

    One thing Quinn was really really good at was managing cap space. Of course though, it's easy to manage cap space when you spend most of your time cycling in/out mediocre-to-below average roll players at the bottom of the roster. Being good at managing cap space also frees up a lot of money you can waste...which is what he did by over paying a bunch of Patriots castoffs over the years. So even the one thing he was good at turned out to not be a good thing in the long run.

    You know you're a shyt coach when you get fired and the teams fans donate to the charity of the opposing starting QB that ended his career as a thank you for ending him.
