Just saw the NFL network "a football life" from jimmyjohnson.
I'm from Miami so the story is a bit closer to home. But what a fascinating story. I'm a huge fan. He's a very brilliant leader, motivator and coach. He coaches
Some of the best bill belicheck, Sean Peyton, and others. Shows you his ability to inspire and teach others. On this documentary that's about 45min you see the whole behind the scenes and it's amazing what he did.
The buffalo bills organization would need a guy like him. I'm surprised Dave Wandstandt is not appearing thus far with that DNA but again as u watch u realize how jimmy has changed and what's important to him and that might be the new thing rubbing off on some of his people. Maybe Dave.
But when I think of a coach or leader I want in a football coach. It's jimmy Johnson. Ask any player they will tell u the same.
Sean Payton maybe an option next season if the bills go that route.
Now among the many revealing things discussed in this documentary is one regarding the bills I had not seen ever before or even heard.
Its sounds like something simple and nothing big but looking back it was huge and now I know why we lost 4 superbowl with out a doubt cause again this might sound obvious but we all have tried to sum up what happened especially as die hard fans and when u re-live those moments.
In here jimmy says why they were going to win those superbowl before they even played the game. This was just amazing to me his confidence. He said "the bills are good, but they turn the ball over, so we are gonna get on them and beat them and knock them out" I was shocked on how simple he put it and as he's speaking they are showing clips of the game and player's interacting Michael Irvin is like we knew buffalo was good but after jimmy said that and we started doing it and seeing it our confidence level grew and we all knew we got this.
Man if I remember those teams we had. They were good. But they did fall apart and many times became soft and were very turnover-ish especially in superbowl w maybe the exception of the first superbowl.
That skins superbowl and then I guess they became that sort of team and it looks like jimmy picked up on that and if I were to divide the late 80s to the first superbowl and from the skins to those next 4-5 years the bills are two different teams w the same players. The earlier team tough and rough. The latter very soft and beatable and turnovers. It's amazing how jimmy saw that and made that his strategy.
Well samething with our current bills. No toughness. No leadership. No heart. Simple.
We need that. Other teams have that. That's why they win. We have a decent team. Talented. Needs better leadership. And if the "good enough" qbs are mentally strong enough to overcome. Then fix that. Cause this team is talented. Its all leadership. That's what's missing.
If u like to watch a good story. Watch it.
