Love what Pete is doing. I sometimes wonder about his clock management/ in game decisions, but I'm a fan.
I've thought a lot during Pete's tenure here about his in-game coaching skills and was really concerned early on about him being out-coached (by Hairball in particular).
I remember his first year as coach reading people talking here on dotnet about how "Big Balls Pete" was sometimes too reckless, being used to dominating his opponents with all the high recruiting talent he could bring to bear coaching for USC, and how that wouldn't work in the NFL (too much parity, etc). Well maybe his team's talent level has caught up with Big Balls Pete and now that's what we have to look forward to in 2013 and for at least a few years until the rest of this copycat league starts emulating his team building and game planning strategies. Of course they can TRY to copy it, but without the caliber of JSs GMing skills, the deeeeep pockets of our Billionaire owner (no cap on paying coaches, etc), the ridiculous homefield advantage the 12th man brings....and on and on.....we really seem to have the perfect storm developing that it's hard to see duplicated very often elsewhere, if ever!
Just a thought....
