Pity Party for Dick Jauron
I feel sorry for Dick Jauron. When he was the head coach of the Bears he had to choose between quarterbacks like Jim Miller, Shane Matthews, Chris Chandler (in the twilight of his less than amazing career), Kordell Stewart, and lets not forget the Cade McNown fiasco. Now that Steve Mariucci got fired and Jauron became the interim head coach of the Lions, his latest controversy involves the less-than-stellar pair Joey Harrington and Jeff Garcia.
The man is a magnet for "lesser of two evils" quarterback decisions. I realize that many of the players I mentioned may have been decent at other times in the careers, but Jauron got them far removed from those times. Talk about bad luck.
