    Was going to ask the same thing.

    It's all well and good saying Kearney doesn't have the talent at his disposal, but whose problem is that? He has had plenty of time to put his mark on the roster - and the current make up is generally because of him.

    His biggest failure is that he has put together a rabble team.

    One win, one bye and two losses. Probably his best month of footy since starting as a coach, first time he has ever gotten points in consecutive weeks :lol:

    Sandow missing tackles aint Mooks' fault. Not assigning any assistance Tunza style, is.

    Sandow's poor organising aint Mooks' fault. Not getting him and Roberts to play at the line is.

    Sandow is playing with less confidence than Sam Thaiday in a room full of Mitchell Pearces. That is a sign of a poor coach.

    Furner is the worst, and McIntyre changes his shitty nappies.

    Exactly, Michael Hagan looks like a great assistant coach for QLD, but was fairly poor at the knights.

    That's not necessarily true. You would expect that over a long enough sample a coach's record would revert to mean, whatever that is. This isn't to say that Kearney is a good coach, but he was never as bad as he looked at Parramatta, where coaching careers go to die. Both he and Ricky Stuart (and Hagan and Arthur if he ever gets another opportunity) would all go better at other clubs than Parramatta.

    The head coach is actually a small part of what makes a team successful. Guys like Bellamy and Bennett have all the support they need to achieve consistent success. Likewise unemployed coaches such as Hasler, Maguire and Griffin.

    Individual coaches stats don't have to revert to the mean. It is not just probability that determines their numbers. Overall coaching stats might do this, but not individual examples.

    I think Pou, that you were closer to the mark when you identified face and head proportions. These will also revert to the mean across a large sample, but Kearney's face isn't going to revert to the mean.

    He’s broken a few Warriors hoodoos this year, win in Perth, most away wins in a season, beating Dragons twice in a season and another win against Manly... there’s a few more no doubt but I’m a few beers in

    I think even Langmack would have got the Panthers to the finals the last 2 years and have them equal fourth last Monday.

    Haha nice necro dude. But anyway it looks like this year Kearney has bpgraduated from being a shit coach to being at least an average one.

    Lol, PPE - the originator of 'the coaches need to have a big face' theory.
