Caldwell signs extension

Recommended Posts


 

Wow. I’m surprised... and even more surprised that it was reportedly signed months ago and neither Quinn nor Caldwell said so, despite each being asked about it repeatedly.

Now the question will be whether it was Quinn’s idea or Mrs. Ford’s.

I guess he is Quinn's guy now.

Right or wrong in the long run I like the fact that Quinn is showing himself to be open minded.

Great move.  Quinn is showing himself to be a quality GM.  Caldwell deserved the extension.  

Nice that ownership hasn't finally given autonomy to the GM. It's working out well.

that's pretty funny they didn't announce it. obvious move now, less obvious a few months ago i suppose.

probably saved some wailing and gnashing of the teeth among the fans inclined to such things to announce it when things are good.

has the respect of the players.  lets his assistant coaches do the work.  chooses good assistants.

sorry pats coordinators, you'll have to go and fail for other teams.

I wasn't a fan at first but he does let the coordinators do their jobs and they are doing it well.

It's Staffords show now anyways

Caldwell has won a lot of people over. Never thought I'd see the day. Glad to see the extension. 2nd best record in the NFC since hiring Cooter, 5th in the NFL. Pretty impressive.

Genuine, non snarky question. Does this convince everyone Quinn legitimately wants him as HC?

Made the playoffs 2 of the last 3 years, off to a good start this season, the players love playing for him, hires quality coordinators.  Makes sense that Quinn wants to keep him around.  I'm not his biggest fan but he has been getting results so I'm oddly ok with this, he's slowly starting to win me over.  Now it's time to at least win a playoff game sometime in the near future, it's been loooooong overdue.

Crooked Lions misled their season ticket holders, some of whom may have renewed on the hope Caldwell would not last out the season.  Now they have several more years to look forward to.  What a dumb move by a dumb organization.  Rewarding a coach for no playoff victories in 3 seasons, and probably only 1 or 2 wins against winning teams.  I would be furious if I still had my season tickets.

I’m convinced, as nothing I’ve seen from Quinn - or Mrs. Ford - makes me think that she is micromanaging him, or that he would tolerate it.

But for the life of me I can’t figure out why they didn’t announce it to the press AND EVEN LIED TO THE PRESS BY OMISSION - unless they wanted to give the press the middle finger.
