    I kind of liked his reply. He pointed out that the fans were eager for both Grimes and Helfrich to depart, and that they've both been successful.

    He was suggesting that there were other factors that prevented his success here. I wonder what he thinks they are. I wonder if Coach Hawkins is at the top of his list, or if he believes it to be something else entirely.

    You should as him. Seriously.

    I don't remember anybody ever hoping to see Grimes go. In fact, I think most agreed that he was a pretty decent O-Line coach. Helfrich, OTOH, well, he sucked.

    Nice clinic, though.

    I'm no fan of Riddle, but his response was pretty good actually.

    I think maybe you should consider going back to Anger Management. Also, what's up with the time stamp on Riddle's email?

    Wow, a little over the top, but to each his own. I did find it interesting he seems clear on the point that he will be seeking success somewhere else.

    No Drew, it was a friend of a friend. Haven't had the pleasure of meeting him yet, but he's welcome at my tailgate anytime! Riddle might be a decent tight end coach, but having Antonio Gates type production wouldn't make up for the ****-show on special teams.

    Riddle has been spending some time on theoretical physics, and may have managed to time travel....

    Either that or he's not bright enough to set the time on his computer.

    +1.

    Although I must say I chuckled at his response. He may be an asshat special teams coach, but he sure can hold his own concerning message board type emails.

    I don't buy this for a second.

    The entire coaching staff has been in a bunker avoiding all things negative since the Cal game, and Riddler has already been called out by D2D as having the ability to out coach any other coach in the Americas.

    No way does Riddler stick his head out of the foxhole at this point. He is going to need to interview for a new job at the end of the season, and he does not need anything out that says he folded under the pressure of internet fan.

    I wonder why coaches and administrations believe message boards are the hight of evil. :lol:

    Listen, pulling stunts like that is not funny and is not right. It is classless.

    Exactly... the e-mail is not something to be proud of and I highly doubt its authenticity.

    It would be good if a few of us let coach Riddle know that we aren't all simple minded jackasses who point at the most simplistic explanation of what the problem might be and then let completely disrespectful crap fly. I already emailed him. His email is in the first post. None of us are in the room or know precisely what choices or challenges he may be facing.

    Excuse me while I have a moment of silence for the horrific challenges facing the worst special teams coach ever...
