He actually did a great job. His team just improbably lost that game. He's the guy who brought Rivers along slowly even when fans were calling for Brees' head. And when he did insert Rivers there was a smooth transition.
Where's the blood? I see no lasting wounds on this team. They lost against a very battle tested team. They'll learn from it. Welcome back Marty Mar
His reputation as a postseason coach. Good-Great regular season, and lousy postseason. 14-2 and lost at home after coming off a bye. I can see WHY Marty critics want to burn him. But the thing i cant agree on with them is when to burn him. Just not now.
Marty is like 5-13, 5-14 in the postseason. 2nd worst playoff record for a coach.
