Default Brunell praises Kevin Gilbride

http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/p...612280387/1108

Brunell impressed: Redskins backup quarterback Mark Brunell started under Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville while Kevin Gilbride called the offensive plays, and he never regretted those first two years.
"He was very good, not only for the quarterbacks, but also for the running backs and the line," Brunell said of Gilbride. "He was good at putting together the complete game plan as far as the run and the pass, knowing what we were good at and knowing at the same time how to take advantage of the defense's weakness."
Brunell, who in 1996 led the Jaguars to their first playoff appearance with Gilbride calling the plays, called Gilbride "smart."
"He really had a good feel for the game," Brunell said. "With his experience, that was the best thing. He could anticipate defenses. He could put his players in the right spots, and he had a rhythm for the game."

Well, I'm guessing Tiki will have a big day, as it is his last game. Hopefully Eli stinks it up.

He certainly did not do those things when he was with the Chargers.

Well, thanks Mark Brunell but no thanks.

We the Chargers fans know as to how good Kevin Gilbide turned out to be, as a head coach.

Look who his quarterbacks were.

Gilbride was not a good HC but you gotta be honest--he wasn't exactly given a pro-bowl roster to work with. The Gilbride era was also the same time that Bobby Beathard was at his absolute worst when it came to drafting players. Gilbride's like Norv Turner. OC is his level of competency. Anything beyond that is too much for him.

as a HC Gilbride had the sole distinction of alienating both the fans and the media.

Gilbride is best upstairs in the booth as an OC, not when he has to interact with players and actually try to "coach" them up.

For as much as he's stunk up the joint in other places, Gilbride does deserve credit for Jacksonville. The Jags lost some of their punch after he left and Chris Palmer took over.

Surprising: Somebody, even if it is Brunell, praised Kevin Gillbride

Not Surprising: He's the only one that will.
