Always Open To Talking About Marty

Vic Ketchman of the Green Bay Packers official site was asked who is the best coach to never win a Super Bowl and who is the most underrated coach. Both answers were one Marty Schottenheimer.

His response is nothing new, but I like reading about Marty:

He was successful everywhere he's been. I think Art Modell made a terrible mistake firing him in Cleveland, and I can't imagine how Daniel Snyder could've fired him after just one season in Washington, especially after winning eight of the last 11 games with Tony Banks at quarterback following an 0-5 start. Being fired in San Diego after going 14-2, because the Chargers lost a playoff game to Tom Brady, is just plain ridiculous. What Schottenheimer did in Kansas City year after year without having a true franchise quarterback is special. In the process, he developed a pretty good future head coach.

That coach should be familiar on the Packers site -- Mike McCarthy.

Really, though, I just like talking about Marty because it gives me an excuse to post these old-school pictures. That sweater is very 1989.
