Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Thursday, October 23, 2014 - Lucius Annaeus Seneca

 

 

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.”

And

“Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbour he is making for, no wind is the right wind.”

And

“A physician is not angry at the intemperance of a mad patient, nor does he take it ill to be railed at by a man in fever. Just so should a wise man treat all mankind, as a physician does his patient, and look upon them only as sick and extravagant.”

And

“Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.”

And

“We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than

from reality.”

And

“It is quality rather than quantity that matters.”

And

“It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.”

And

“Love in its essence is spiritual fire.”

And

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the

rulers as useful.”

And

“A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.”

And

“A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer’s hand.”

And

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare

that they are difficult.”

And

“True happiness is… to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.”

NFL Post Week 7 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Ebola? These Hot Seat Coaches Have A Helluva Lot More To Worry About Than Contracting Ebola Like The….HOT SEAT! Give It To Them Straight Johnny Cash!

 

 

1. Rex Ryan, New York Jets – What would really piss us off if we owned or managed a NFL football team is a struggling team that suddenly rises up and almost beats one of the best teams in the NFL which the Jets almost did against the New England Patriots last Thursday night which would have left us wondering:

Why in the Hell hasn’t your team been playing that way the entire Damn season?

The above question would of course be asked to Rex Ryan if we were running the New York Jets which of course has no Damn logical answer!

The New York Jets are now 1 – 6 on the season and are on the edge of having one of the worst all-time seasons in Jets’ history and things don’t get any easier for Rex Ryan’s football team with these next five games:

Buffalo Bills
At Kansas City Chiefs
Pittsburgh Steelers
At Buffalo Bills
Miami Dolphins

Oh…BUT….a New York Jets team that can almost beat the New England Patriots on the road can beat....

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day - Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - Ben Bradlee

 

 

Two Coaches Hot Seat members were walking on a street in downtown Washington DC in the late 1980s and see Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee walking towards them. One of the CHS Members says, “Hey, that’s Ben Bradlee.” Ben Bradlee looks over at the two of them and says, “That’s right kid!”

And

“You never monkey with the truth.”

And

“Maybe some of today’s papers have too many ‘feel-good’ features, but there is a lot of good news out there.”

And

“I must be out of it, but I don’t know any good journalists who have excused Clinton’s problems.”

And

“The really tough thing would have been to decide to take Woodward and Bernstein off the story. They were carrying the coal for us – in that their stories were right.”

And

“I think he had a strange, passionate devotion to the truth and a horror at what he saw going on.”

And

“Sure, some journalists use anonymous sources just because they’re lazy and I think editors ought to insist on more precise identification even if they remain anonymous.”

And

“I never believed that Nixon could fully resurrect himself. And the proof of that was in the obits.”

And

“If an investigative reporter finds out that someone has been robbing the store, that may be ‘gotcha’ journalism, but it’s also good journalism.”

And

“The biggest difference between Kennedy and Nixon, as far as the press is concerned, is simply this: Jack Kennedy really liked newspaper people and he really enjoyed sparring with journalists.”

And

“In 1984, after The Post published information about a satellite payload over protests from Reagan Administration officials, a number of people wrote in questioning Ben’s patriotism, suggesting he worked for the Kremlin, et cetera. One writer in particular pushed Ben’s buttons by asking, “What did you do during WWII?” This is Ben’s response, said to be among Kay Graham’s favorites:

Dear Asshole:

I suspect I did more for my country in the war than you did. I spent four years in destroyers in the Pacific Ocean. My theater ribbon has 10 battle stars in it.

That’s just for starters.”

And

“As long as a journalist tells the truth, in conscience and fairness, it is not his job to worry about consequences. The truth is never as dangerous as a lie in the long run. I truly believe the truth sets men free.”

And

“Ben at Columbia Journalism School graduation, May 2007:

The real spiel I have for you is to have a good time while you are in your jobs. Have a good time. The newspaper will be great if you’re having a good time.”

And

“There really isn’t enough time in the day to convene a task force on every little decision. If you’re publishing 140,000 words five times a day you’ve got to decide. And you’ve got to get it off the table and get on to the next one before you go crazy. You’ll never go home and you won’t be in any shape when you get home.”

And

“Whenever people around Ben are worried about something that he doesn’t think is overly important, he will often say, as a way of providing context:

When the history of the world is written, this will not be in it.”

Post Week 8 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Forget Ebola What Should Really Concern These Hot Seat Coaches Is the HOT SEAT! Tell Them the God’s Honest Truth Johnny! - Stanford Football = We Work?  Please...More Like We Don't Work!

 

 

1. Will Muschamp, Florida – If there has been any lesson learned over the 25 years of Florida football it is that….

Florida Football is NOT a training ground to learn how to become a Head Coach

….and that TRUTH is revealed by the win/loss records of the last FOUR Florida head football coaches in Gainesville:

Steve Spurrier: 122 – 27 – 1 (.817)

Ron Zook: 23 – 14 (.622)

Urban Meyer: 65 – 15 (.813)

Will Muschamp: 25 – 19 (.568)

Sure there are plenty of examples of assistant head coaches that have taken over top-tier college football programs and done very well…..

Mark Richt at Georgia comes to mind

….BUT in our opinion which is based upon seeing Florida football up-close going back over the past 25 years....

The REAL “Victim” and “Victims” in the Dumpster Fire that is Florida State University – This past week FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said in a press conference that….

“There is no victim”

…..in referring to anything that Jameis Winston may or may not have been involved with and certainly Yahoo! Sports Dan Wetzel in his latest….

Ugly treatment of Jameis Winston’s accuser serves to only discourage future victims, Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports

….puts the “victim or not” issue into stark relief for anyone that can read the English language BUT what Jimbo Fisher is so clearly missing is that there is a “victim” with everything that has gone on with Jameis Winston at FSU over the past two years and that “victim” is of course….

Jameis Winston

When you surround a young boy and then young man with a lot of…

Very Damn Sorry Adults

….which in our opinion Jameis Winston has been surrounded with during his entire life on this Earth and which has continued at Florida State with many enabling and excusing Winston at every turn who in our opinion is a….

I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of

vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!”

1 – 5

….the only thing in question now is the Where and When will be Rex Ryan’s firing by someone within the New York Jets organization and it doesn’t help that the Jets have a short-week and have to play a surging New England Patriots team on Thursday night that will get a thrill out of sticking a few more knives in the back of their old AFC East rivals the Jets.

With Rex Ryan claiming that Geno Smith was a “good Draft pick” we here at Coaches Hot Seat are starting to get worried and concerned for the mental stability of Rex because a few more comments like that and we will need to send Martin Sheen “upriver” to find Rex Ryan and in this case Martin Sheen once he finds Ryan should just go ahead and....
