I don't think he could win as many games as he did if he wasn't a gifted coach.

Obviously, I have a bit of bias toward Madden... I have been a Raider fan for 38 years. Most of you probably aren't old enough to remember the days of Madden's Raiders, although, I'm sure some of you are. They were a very physical, dominating, intimidating team... just like the Steelers of the 70's.
Thanks for the answer.

So, why do you think he comes across so bad on TV?

He must be aware of the criticism he recieves - for a guy who used to coach he doesnt give us much more insight than Suzy Kolber.

I don't know that I can answer that. The only thing I can think is, he is out of his element, although, as many years as has done the TV thing you would think he would be a bit better at it.

Maybe the TV execs like him to be the big, loveable, buffoon... good for ratings? I just don't know. I have heard serious interviews with him ,and he is quite intelligent, really.

Maybe he knows that this shtick works, so, why fix what isn't broke?

Yeah, that's part of being a Raider fan, it goes with the territory.

We definately have a few more guys that are very deserving of the HOF, but the same can be said for other teams too. LC Greenwood should have made the Hall by now. Look how long it took Madden to get in. There are quite a few deserving guys from all over the league, that should probably be there by now.

I agree, but I don't neccessarily think that the SB win is what makes him a lock for the HOF... He is a lock because he is a great coach. He has many more years to go, and I would surmise that he will win a few more SB's before his time is done.
