If Eddie saw all those open receivers open down field, but the high percentage one who is 5 yards away is chosen...he'd have a problem with that...he'd think there is something wrong with his QB and would keep asking about it. With Eddie it was SuperBowl or bust. If he felt that kind of play wasn't good enough against playoff teams late in the season and the playoffs...he'd put pressure on Bill to find out what is wrong.
people get the wrong feeling that Eddie and Walsh thunk alike....Eddie loved and respected Bill, but he would question and go passed his decisions if he felt he needed to......again, that is just the Debartolla I remember.
Fair answer...but let me ask this...who did Eddie ever overrule Walsh on?
haha I thought I deleted that part before posting...because I was trying to think back when he ACTUALLY did....again, like I said, that is just the Eddie I remember in the late 80's.
so if anyone else with better memory wants to chime in, go ahead, but I'll take back that comment if no one else can remember a scenario.
edit- and now I see there is no Main Alex thread...what happened to the other one? I mean I read there will be a review of the last set of comments..but man.
for now, since this will be the thread that draws all the Alex fans and "fans" and this conversation involves so many variables......I'm
