He never seems to lose his temper - and when he does, it just seems to be internalized, like instead of spouting off he just looks red and flustered. He cannot/refuses to fire up his players. His offensive scheme is terrible and his playcalling is worse. He refuses to adjust his scheme to the players he has (drafts 3 bigtime WRs then sticks with a dink and dunk offensive strategy). As a Lions fan, Steve Mariucci is my vote for most annoying coach.
I understand where you're coming from Corn, but I hope the alternative is better than Dennis Erickson.
I think Mariucci would kick a field goal with 2 minutes left in the game when he's down by 6. And then in the postgame, he would say something like "We put forth a good effort, but it just wasn't quite enough" Duh?
