Chuck Smith on Falcons lack of pass rush

83 posts in this topic

I like Chuck Smith. That being said, it is interesting that he is not employed by a NFL team. I wonder if there is a behind the scenes reason he isn’t? I’m sure he makes good money at his camp and may not even want to coach in the NFL but I would like to see what he could do coaching a D Line in the NFL. If it was our D Line I would like it even better.

I really never thought about Vic that way concerning training camp. That IS disrespectful to DQ AND the “brotherhood”. Especially when a coach mentions you by name as somebody he wants to work with hands on. 

should have been a major red flag for this season right there

Not really interesting that he's not employed by an NFL Team. It's just like any other job. Coaches have egos, just like Supervisors. They're not gonna give the job to someone who will probably take their job.

He’s making good money doing his PR training and runs his own show.

Do you know the number of hours you put in as a coach in the NFL?

During the season you’re working anywhere from 8-14 hour days every day.

I still have no clue why we care what Chuck Smith has to say about pass rushing...

Not that I think he's an expert but he's pretty funny sometimes. He's definitely not trying to build bridges to the Atlanta front office when he says what he says.

He only has been neck deep in working with and developing some of the greatest pass rushers the NFL has to offer, including Haynesworth, Von Miller, Osi and perhaps now Bud Dupree.

That and he remains loyal to and invested in the success of his former team, the Falcons, means he is an untapped asset we have stupidly ignored through two different coaches.

I was so busy with changing Jobs and learning new stuff, I didn't even know he wasn't working out with him.

I saw an article once showing how many people he has been "neck deep in working with" and the list wasn't very impressive...at all...almost like it was more the player being outstanding than Chuck Smith teaching them anything.

Player, yes.  I'm talking about from this "pass rush specialist" angle everyone keeps building him up over.  If I wasn't dragging booty I would find the list I referenced above.  It was not inspiring.
