I have never been a huge fan of the offense. Mainly because Steve Mariucci came to Detroit and slaughtered the WCO theory with a team of misfits. I am also a firm believer that an effective run game to start, opens up the pass, rather than vice versa.
Either way, former players and just about every coach had nothing but praise for Walsh. A good man, great mind. Definitely a sad day in the football world.
This got me thinking. A lot of great minds came through sports during the 80's to revolutionize the way the games are played today. I am talking in all sports. Its up to the guys who are coaching now, who learned from these greats, to keep their ideas fresh with the old school mentality. This is the way great coaches are made. Smarts and balls. Two qualities Bill Walsh possessed.
