He "could" have told them all, hang back, play safe, play the D to D pass game etc...he didn`t, he did what good coaches do, allow players to play to their strength, and put them in situations to do so
Ok fair enough. I did read your post, and wasn't criticizing you. Was asking for clarification so I could better understand your argument. Maybe I should gleaned all that from what you said, my apologies. Wasn't trying to be argumentative or put you down. Forums are for discussing things.
On an adside: I agree, maybe I should give him more credit, instead of just looking at who he plays, but more how they play. Didn't really occur to me that he might take an offensive talent like Krug and tell him to play this way or that way. I always kind of assumed a player is who he is, and didn't really think about how Julien might have played them, but instructed them to tone back their offensive tendencies.
