The Harrisons: Five coaches who flopped in Week 3
In honor of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison's bold stance, our weekly award for people in the NFL who didn't even deserve a participation trophy. For Week 3, a special coaches’ edition:
Bill O’Brien, Texans
He is not the first to get outcoached by Bill Belichick and won’t be the last. But the game plan he put together Thursday night just looked like he was scared of the Patriots. No wonder his players reflected it.
Bruce Arians, Cardinals
The effort was bad enough in Buffalo. And maybe this summed it up: Down 30-13 in the third quarter, Arians went for two points. Huh? Take the extra point and you are still within two scores. Not good math, Bruce.
Hue Jackson, Browns
We understand you have a rookie QB, but you also have a kicker you just signed. And you get a gift turnover at the end of regulation and you play for the field goal? How did that work out?
Gus Bradley, Jaguars
The fans booed when you took the field. Sorry, but we don’t blame them. Even the people in the pool at the stadium deserve better than 0-3.
Todd Bowles, Jets
So exactly what does it take to pull Ryan Fitzpatrick and give Geno Smith some reps? The only thing worse than Fitzpatrick’s performance (six interceptions) was the decision to let him stay in the game.
