Great read about the changes to the scouting department and how things are being done now.

It's nice that they were able to make changes in how the do things so fast. I think O'Brien being familiar with the Pat's way of doing things made it an easier transition

Enjoyed the read, especially enjoyed the part about an emphasis on player intelligence, both on and off the field followed by a reference to Nick Fairley.

It was mentioned years ago that NE sought out smart people to play for them. Not 'football IQ' which means he isn't the brightest bulb, but he has talent and generally knows what to do at his position. They actually sought players that could read, understand and remember the playbook. On their own.

Hopefully this spells the end to coaches having to dumb down the schemes and players pointing fingers at each other over blown coverages and the like.

Ernie Adams? If you don't know who he is do some reading about him and the influence he has not just on the Patriots but on Belichick as far back as when he was an assistant under Parcells in NY.

Lions hire Harold Nash Jr., former Patriots Strength &Conditioning Coach, in the same role with the Lions.

Apparently, the Patriots just fired him after their season ended. Don't know why. The Lions propaganda article didn't even say he was fired. They said he was released. LOL

I would assume it has something to do with all the injuries they suffered this season.

There was some speculation that Nash was released so that he could come work for Quinn. It wouldn't surprise me if that were true, the Patriots have always been next man up. They would probably be willing to let a guy go to work for Quinn. The Pats play the game very well and giving Quinn what he wants means he is willing to return the favor later.

No, the head of the Detroit Lions Cheerleading Squad.

The personal training industry is so competitive, that I have to believe anyone who gets to lead a S&C program at the NFL level is pretty good. I remember people made a big deal about Rich Rod's new S&C coach when he came to Michigan -- how'd that work out? I don't think changing the S&C staff is going to give you as much of a boost as you think.

Blueskies: pretty good is in the eye of the beholder. Some guys love "hoo-raa" types, others sports science types. The PT industry is competitive, but so was baseball when the moneyball guys came around. Competitive doesn't mean there isn't a paradigm shift out there.

Legend: I know enough about Crennel and Weis and Pioli and McDaniels and every other fcuker that came out of that organisation whose name doesn't start with B and end in elichick to not need you rubbing my nose in it. Ok, so you're probably right. More than probably - likely. But my whole Lions fandom survives from year to year on the triumph of optimism over what's staring me right in the face, so leave it out, ok? :wink:
