Did Jimmy Johnson expose his former QB as a liar + hypocrite?

    During yesterday's FOX broadcast, Johnson had the following exchange w/ Barry Switzer and Terry Bradshaw: [text per Bostonsportsmedia.com]
    Meanwhile, over on CBS, Dan Marino was expounding on his opinion of the practice in question:
    My questions are:

    1) Where does Marino think Jimmy Johnson got his inside tips on the opponent's defensive calls from, and...

    2) Does this call into question the validity of Dan Marnio's soon-to-be-defunct-anyway touchdown records?

    I'm not sure if Johnson knew of Marino's comments but this is certainly an example of players speaking as though they know what a coach is doing.... and that was Johnson's point I think:

    "Shut your yaps players - chances are your coaches are doing the same thing Belichick did, whether you knew it or not..."

    Brady's comments this morning saying that these types of comments are based on ignorance is in line with this reasoning as well, with Brady saying he's lost respect for an awful lot of players and others...

    Many coaches have done it, but it's not like they get on the radio with their QB and say "hey this is their defensive call...". Anyone's who done it (recording coaches), sure as hell aren't using it to tell their QB the oppositions plays. Yet everyone wants to assume that BB was using it to tell Tommy the opponent's plays.

    The lack of intelligence, common sense and logical thinking in all these mediots, players and coaches is ASTOUNDING. I mean honestly, they can't just be THAT much against BB and the pats can they? It has to just be that they are morons.

    BB and the patriots coaching staff are one of very few groups in football that can actually USE the information they get from recording coaches. Not in any hugely significant way, and that's what pisses people off most. That is why everyone WANTS it to be about stealing signals. Because they have NO idea how to use the tape otherwise and it doesn't make any sense to them.

    So basically is Marino saying he couldn't read defenses? Brady and Manning point out where blitzes are coming from...because they were told? ....can't be since dungey is pure as driven snow and stated he wouldn't stoop to such a level. They both identify coverages and seem pretty successful:rolleyes: I guess danny needs to explain why he doesn't have a ring...

    The Patriots players have said in the past that they keep a bulletin board of what people (especially players) say about them and use it as motivation on game days........

    I think they have enough fodder to keep them focused for a while now......

    I think the question was meant about the University of Miami. But one can deduct that if he did it @ 2 college schools he might have done it at the pro level too.

    Dan Marino -

    Mr Stats, but loser never delivered the mighty Doofins to the promised land - sour grapes and jealousy. Keep it going Dan, you stay classy while your former Miami coach says he did it too.

    Excellent post. You'd expect more thoughtful analysis from ex-coaches and players. Instead they just blurt out the dumbest crap imaginable.
