Not necessarily. We didn't make it to the NFC Championship game on the strength of our explosive offense led by the mastermind genius who outsmarted the rest of the defenses in the NFL. We played great defense and made few mistakes on offense...that's a formula that has worked in the NFL for years regardless of coaching background.
Not taking anything away from JH at all, but I think the fact that he was an NFL QB is just one aspect of/reason for his success, but it's certainly not the main one. I think his attention to detail in all 3 phases of the game, and the ability to get players to fully buy in to his system philosophy are the real keys.
