Worst Coach Ever!
I don’t know if you’ve seen those Nike commercials with the Briscoe High School team. Anyway, it’s about a “high school” football team. According to the Nike website, the team consists of many star NFL players, including LaDanian Tomlinson, Brian Urlacher, Troy Polamalu, Matt Leinart, and Ron Mexico, and is coached by Hall of Fame head coach Don Shula. To restate myself, these guys are NFL stars, yet they’re on this imaginary high school team in the commercial. So you’d think with having these stars on the team that they’d be pretty dominant. Well, they’re not. They beat some pretty good high school teams, but these guys should be able to contend for a Super Bowl with their roster. I mean, this high school team has Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart as its backup quarterback. Yet, they barely squeak out games. One game they were trailing late at the end, and they needed a half-back pass from Tomlinson to get the winning touchdown on the last play of the game. They had to resort to a gadget play to win a high school game. Anyway, I guess my whole point is that Don Shula must really be a shitty coach. No wonder Dan Marino never won a Super Bowl. He’s also probably the main reason that Ray Finkle missed that kick. They should kick him out of the Hall.
