    I'd take Marshall as a HC today! NO IF ANDS OR BUTS about it! Smart football player and not too many out there that are more knowledgable!!! Plus i believe that Shaw and Company would give him more room to work with!

    I agree Angels.Marshall knows Marts Offence,and I think he could call a better Game,at least I know he'd call a better game than Fairchild.

    Re: How about Marshall faulk ?

    You guys can't be serious. Being a HC is the equivalent of being a CEO of a fairly large company. MF probably will be a pretty good coach some day, but he has no experience in evaluating talent, managing the day-to-day operations, setting up schemes, etc. There's a huge difference between being exposed to that stuff and having to do it for yourself.

    I'd love to see him as a player/coach as the RB coach. Give him some time learning how to coach players, then let him work up the ladder. He'll be a HC someday.

    I hope if he does decide to retire after this year we are able to keep him on the staff in some kind of assistant position and groom him to be our future HC.

    Nope, keep him. If he decides to retire this year, then offer him the position as RB coach.
    Same for Bruce....if he wants to go, promote Ellard, and put Rev. Ike in at WR coach.

    Re: How about Marshall faulk ?

    A few things to keep in mind about Marshall being a head coach.

    1) most people that retire are looking to move on for a while. I am guessing the last thing Marshall will want to do when he steps down is return to football immediately. He does think pretty highly of the golf coarse.

    2) Being a Head Coach is not an easy task and it is not one a player would, should or could move into with NO experience. If Marshall wants to coach some day, you all need to give him time to learn job.

    Although I appreciate your enthusiasm about Marshall, I don't the his ready to assume the responsibility of a Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator or even a Running Back Coach at this point and time in his life.

    Re: How about Marshall faulk ?

    Well i can't agree with a few of you guys on this one. Marshall willdefinatly know talent and i'd be willing to bet that he could be a HC at any given time! He is one of the smartest guys out there. Why do you need experience to coach football anyhow? All half of these guys have done is be an assistant somewhere! Marshall has been around long enough to know what most of these coaches know! half of the coaches out there have never even played the game and they are coaches! I'll agree that there are some players out there that wouldn't be able to coach but, Marshall i do believe could step right in and do it. Football is football period. Just gets faster and more competitive is all at this level! Marshall's probably been around this game for at least 20 years or so so i'd say he has had plenty of experience.

    Re: How about Marshall faulk ?

    Someday, not today, tomorrow, or the next day, mind you, but someday Faulk will be a fine coach. However, of all the things Faulk needs to learn and all the skills Faulk will have to acquire between now and then, one of them is overcoming the "Larry Bird Syndrome". LBS is what happens when a world-class player first gets into coaching and realizes that not everyone is as good as they were. It becomes very frustrating for the new coach and his team.

    Bottomline, even top-notch players have whole new skill sets to learn before becoming solid coaches.

    Re: How about Marshall faulk ?

    Marshall will step away from the game for a while after he retires. He'll probably get onto the golf course and work on his swing. He wont step right back into football because he wont want to get burned out. He cant step in and be a head coach because...

    1.)He has no experience as an assistant coach or how to gameplan for an opponent. Gameplanning on what to do yourself as opposed to what your team can do are two completely different things.

    2.)He needs experience in developing players. He has never done that and it is a lot more difficult than people think.

    3.)He'll have to learn that not every RB or player can do what he does. This is something that he will learn as a RB coach.

    I see Faulk going in a motion like this...

    5-10 years later...RB coach for the St.Louis Rams
    13-15 years later...OC for the St.Louis Rams
    17-18 years later...HC somewhere in the league.

    Football is in Marshall's blood and he's smart enough to be a great coach. He just needs time to develop into one.
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.
