If he was Mongo, I would love to have him on the defensive line...

My boss played in the NFL as an O Guard under Ditka back in the early 80s. His nickname at our office is Mongo.



Wait, so the important question here:

Was Ditka a terrible head coach back then too who just had so much talent (and Buddy Ryan) that it didn't matter? Or was he just not trying in New Orleans?

I didn't realize this was still a question? Guy couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag.


Except the whole winning the Super Bowl thing

See Buddy Ryan above.

Also congrats to Jim Finks for putting together one of the most talented teams in NFL history.

Ditka player great. Coach in NOLA suck.


More sucked at player evaluation in NOLA than sucked at coaching.


He sucked at both. It's why he never coached again.

Coaching may have been worse. It's why he never coached after Chicago until the Saints gave him a job for some reason.


Yeah he had to wait what, three whole years?

Four
