2015.12.25 18:16 deejaysea (Part 4) Goldberg: title matches vs Rick Fuller/Scott Putski & other bad WCW decisions [WON, 07/27/98 & more]

July 27, 1998
WCW has already taken the steam out of Goldberg's title win by not following it up and keeping the momentum going. He's got no program and the TV is still all built around Hogan, so it's like his title win meant nothing, similar to Hogan killing off the title while Sting held it. Hogan would be a valuable part of the company until he's 60 if he'd just move into the role Baba and Inoki took in Japan when they were washed up and it was time to build the new stars. In Inoki's case, he came back for big shows as a special attraction, but it was always clear the main events (with a few exceptions) were the younger guys and he was just the garnish and not the main course. In Baba's case, he is 60 and still around but he's kept himself in the middle of the show and nobody minds that physically he's an old man because he isn't in the main event. And both of those guys owned (or in Inoki's case partially owned) their companies and were smart enough to see the future. With Hogan, since he doesn't own it, he certainly doesn't care about the future and just uses the company as his personal vehicle to remain a star and if the company goes (not that it is in any danger of going anywhere with business like it is but it's not going to win the ratings regularly for a long time), he can always go back to the WWF. In the 80s, there was a lot of time when fans thought Inoki should step aside and he finally did about the time he was Hogan's age and even though Inoki was clearly past his prime then, he at 55 is a better worker than Hogan at 45, but he did have the senate to go to to placate his ego, but he was also tons more over than Hogan. But Baba never held his own company's major title after 1985 and Inoki's last world title reign was 1988 and both continued to be valuable members of the company while at the same time the companies both created new superstars to keep them flourishing and going to bigger heights until All Japan sputtered the past two years
WCW Thunder 7/18 Dark match main event saw Goldberg pin Giant in their first-ever singles meeting in 2:57. Goldberg, wearing a knee brace and with his forehead all marked up from head-butting inanimate objects, sold the entire match, finally getting choke slammed (he jumped early which screwed up the move somewhat). He kicked out, hit the spear and tried the jackhammer, but Giant was just two big and he couldn't make the turn so it was just a vertical suplex, but Giant stayed down for the pin. Goldberg got a great reaction, but it wasn't much better than Konnan or Page. The backlash on him is already starting as there were tons of Goldberg posters, more than anyone else in the company (second was Flair and he's not in the company) but a good 20% of them were negative with things like Goldberg can't wrestle, Goldberg sucks, DX says Goldberg suck it, and one in response to his quote in the New York Jewish paper about his matches being real, saying Goldberg, don't you know wrestling is fake. When he came out, if there were any boos, they were totally drowned out, but you couldn't miss all the negative posters
WCW Nitro 7/20 They mentioned the E Center as the house that Goldberg built since Goldberg's Nitro debut was 9/22 in the same building. Naturally to make perfect sense out of all this, Goldberg never appeared on the show.
Other Notes Lots of people noted that WCW was plugging all weekend that it would show the Hogan-Goldberg match on the 7/13 Nitro and it never did Page, Nash and Goldberg are being used as the spokespeople for the opening of the Nitro Cafe in Las Vegas
Both Nash and Goldberg have upcoming stints booked on the new "Love Boat" TV show
August 3, 1998
WCW Nitro 7/27 It opened with a black & white interview without Hogan and Bischoff, with Scott Hall handling it and passing it to Brian Adams, who challenged Goldberg for a title match later in the show. Adams' delivery is really outdated.
Bill Goldberg did his first interview. He did a good job, but I think it wasn't the right time for it and some of the mystique may have been hurt.
Goldberg beat Adams in 1:32 with the jackhammer in a sloppier than usual match.
Page beat Hogan via DQ in 4:11. There was a sign in the crowd when this match started "Extremely Crappy Wrestling." Hogan worked harder than usual and both were real aggressive, but after 3:00 Hogan started tiring out and it got really bad. Page did a great sell job on a stiff clothesline. Page hit the diamond cutter when Hennig, Hall and Norton ran in for the DQ. Wolfpac made the save. Eventually Goldberg showed up and was tackling everyone in sight until Giant choke slammed him just as the show went off the air. At this point, they had the Goldberg vs. Giant dark match which ended rather quickly with Goldberg popping up from the choke slam and hitting the spear and suplex combination
Other Notes Bob Raisman of the New York Daily News wrote a really good story in the 7/19 issue on the Bash at the Beach match It talked about CNN's Craig Sager interviewing Goldberg backstage and WCW officials freaking out because they didn't want Goldberg talking and Raisman brought up how Goldberg was being protected. Bischoff admitted it saying, "You have to make sure Goldberg is in there with the right people and he's wrestling in the right matches. You have to make sure he's in the right storylines. You have to be careful about what you plug him into."
Goldberg will be on TSN's "Off the Record" this week
After seeing Austin and Goldberg live over the past week and when it comes to comparison with the reactions Hogan would get live, Hogan's reactions live in his prime and even as late as the early 80s beat both of them. Austin's drawing power is great and is a great worker, but he can't match Hogan's charisma. Goldberg's reactions to his finish and his intro are better than Austin's, but since his work isn't close, he can't take the crowd up and down while working a match like Austin can
August 17, 1998
Road Wild 1998 Then in the mind-boggling booking decision of the year, Bill Goldberg, with no opponents ready to challenge him for the title, eliminated everyone except Kevin Nash (who walked out himself no doubt as a booking compromise to him since many in upper management were already legitimately scared he wasn't going to show up in the first place) in winning a Battle Royal. At the end, Goldberg used the tackle and jackhammer on Giant, thereby ending any curiosity over what is going to happen when the two meet in the various upcoming house show main events and killing intrigue in a potential PPV match against probably the only opponent aside from Hogan that he possibly could draw against. You couldn't have booked that match dumber had you tried.
The finish was supposed to have Leno using the diamond cutter, a relatively simple move to learn, on Bischoff, but they didn't trust him to do it and instead had Eubanks do it and Leno scored the pin on Bischoff. After the match, the heels jumped the babyfaces to allow Bill Goldberg, wearing his title belt, to do a run-in and tackle both Hogan and Bischoff (Bischoff again doing a professional job). This was smart because the in-ring celebration had Leno, Eubanks, Page and Goldberg wearing the title belt, again a set-up spot which hopefully would get Goldberg's photo into the mainstream media. In that way, the final match was very smartly done, and really not all that bad to watch.
  1. Bill Goldberg won a nine-man Battle Royal featuring eight members of NWO Wolfpac vs. NWO Hollywood in 7:58. Goldberg backflipped Scott Hall out at 1:25. Kevin Nash, who management was concerned about not even showing up until the day of the event, then got to be the only wrestler in the match that Goldberg didn't eliminate as he simply walked out over the top rope at 1:35 to try and pound on Hall. Goldberg bloodied his lip. Match died about 4:00 in. Goldberg threw out Konnan (Charles Ashenoff) in 4:56. Goldberg speared and threw out Curt Hennig in 6:47. Goldberg then clotheslined Sting (Steve Borden) and Scott Norton out in 6:53. Goldberg speared and threw out Lex Luger (Larry Pfohl) in 7:09. Giant then choke slammed Goldberg, who popped right back up, speared Giant, delivered the jackhammer, and pinned him clean in the middle. It was a good finish for the moment, but it made absolutely no sense from a booking standpoint to do that finish on PPV at this time. This was the first match where the audience seemed to have a vague idea who the wrestlers were, although none got big pops they seemed to at least get the reaction as recognizable stars. Goldberg's reaction was way down compared to usual for the same reason everyone's was, and also because outdoors it's harder to pipe the fake chants in and there was little in the way of chants for him during the show or match. *
Other Notes USA Today ran a front page of the "Life" section story on pro wrestling on 8/6, complete with photos and a capsule profile on Bill Goldberg and Steve Austin. Goldberg was quoted as saying of Austin, "I respect the guy for what he's done, but I don't respect him enough to copy him. Steve Austin is known as one of the best promo guys in the world. But Steve Austin doesn't do one thing that I can do in the ring." Austin on Goldberg: "Goldberg is squashing people with his power moves, and that's great. But he doesn't know the psychology yet. I'm able to go out there and take the fans on a 30-minute roller coaster ride."
They may do War Games with three teams, Wolpac, NWO Hollywood and WCW (which could be Hellwig & DDP & Goldberg and a fourth member). Hellwig will be known as The Warrior, because there is still a legal battle ongoing between Hellwig and WWF for the rights to the name Ultimate Warrior
WCW Thunder 8/5 They had two dark matches, with Misterio Jr. beating Jericho in a non-title and Goldberg pinning Giant
WCW Nitro 8/10 Jim Duggan pinned Barbarian with a schoolboy in 3:42. After the match Hugh Morrus interfered, but Meng made the save. Meng then destroyed everyone in the world including Duggan and all of WCW security with the Tongan death grip to try and make him a monster for his match with Goldberg in the main event.
Hogan did an interview challenging Goldberg to a title match and saying he'd be at ringside for the main event.
Finally Goldberg pinned Meng with the jackhammer in 2:07. NWO Wolfpac and Hollywood were both at ringside. After the match Hogan hit Goldberg in the back with a pathetic chair shot that poor Goldberg had to sell, which was bad since he's never sold so much that looks so much better. Nash got the chair from Hogan before Goldberg turned around. Goldberg turned around and saw Nash in the ring and speared him just as the show went off the air. Goldberg delivered a fantastic three minutes of ratings, but his pops all week were down and there were boos after the show went off the air directed at him for attacking Nash
August 31, 1998
WCW Nitro 8/24 Wolfpac did an interview. I swear I heard this same interview 15 times before. Must be clairvoyance or something. Either that or they say the exact same thing every interview. Eventually Nash called out Goldberg and the fans booed, but then he asked Goldberg to be his partner in the tag match.
Hogan & Giant vs. Goldberg & Nash ended up with half the world interfering right in front of the ref and a pinfall counted as Goldberg jackhammered Hennig. It was dreadful when Giant was in with Nash and didn't have any heat either, although it had a lot of heat for Hogan vs. Goldberg although that was no great shakes either. Hogan threw Nash out of the ring and Nash didn't seem to like being made to be a background for someone else's big save, and Giant clotheslined Goldberg over the top so poor Goldberg & Nash were set-up guys for Page, Warrior and Piper running in
WCW Saturday Night taping, 8/25 The only notes at press time that we have on the WCW Saturday Night tapings on 8/25 in Terre Haute, IN are that Goldberg no-showed his scheduled main event with Giant. After a match where Page beat Hennig via DQ, they turned the lights on and thanked everyone for coming, sending everyone home unhappy since the only match ever advertised was one that didn't take place and the most popular wrestler didn't appear. Giant did work the show doing a 60 second squash on Van Hammer
Other Notes The New York Daily News had a two-page column by Mark Kriegel on Goldberg. Very little of note in the story as his football career is well documented. Goldberg said that he got the idea of his character as a cross between a UFC fighter, Bruiser Brody and John Matuszak
September 7, 1998
WCW Thunder 8/26 In the main, Page & Konnan beat Giant & Ray via DQ when the NWO interfered and Goldberg made the save, and it wound up with Goldberg giving Giant the jackhammer, but probably after the show went off the air. Too bad the U.S. mail wasn't faster as I'd have saved everyone two hours out of their lives by not watching this.
WCW Nitro 8/31 They showed a clip of Goldberg at the Miami Marlins game hanging out with Mark McGwire. And yes, WCW is interested in having McGwire wrestle after the season is over although that deal is probably not even in the preliminary stages.
Goldberg retained his world heavyweight title beating Al Greene, who Kevin Nash acknowledged as his first tag team partner (as The Master Blasters way back in late 1990). Anyway, Greene earned his title shot by winning a War Games in the local pool hall, certainly not by not wrestling for the past decade, and Goldberg jackhammer'd him in 2:17.
Other Notes Most reports are that Hall will be out of action for a while due to his latest problem so at this point he and Nash will probably never wrestle each other, which goes leave a Goldberg vs. Nash match as a possibility for Havoc since the original plan was to do Hogan vs. Warrior.
In regard to Goldberg and the 8/25 show in Terre Haute, IN, here's the story. Goldberg vs. Giant was advertised as the dark match main event in both Terre Haute and Peoria. Some time back, Goldberg had asked for those two days off and J.J. Dillon gave him the days off. Somehow, with the typical great communication internally, the promotions department never knew that and continued to advertise him. Nobody even knew there was a problem until the day of Terre Haute when they realized the only match advertised was Goldberg vs. Giant and Goldberg wasn't there. The Providence deal turned into a disaster as the original thinking was that maybe 40 percent of the 7,000+ who paid would actually go to the box office the week after the show and ask for refunds, but as it turned out, all but 1,800 got refunds so the idea of doing what they did in Providence was ruled out although WCW again didn't do itself any favors by never booking a firm return date to Providence that fans could use those tickets for instead of refunding them. So instead, the decision was made to not inform the crowd in Terre Haute about Goldberg not being there, and to basically warm up the cars and all sprint out of the building like Earl Hebner in Montreal the minute the Page-Hennig match was over and before anyone in the crowd realized what was up and started throwing furniture. Basically, Goldberg had to be practically begged to appear in Peoria but he did come but wasn't happy about it, made doubly screwy for him because WCW had booked him for the main event in Peoria at the end of a four hour taping and for all sorts of media appearances in New York City early the next morning as part of the Nassau Coliseum ticket sale kick-off, and to get him to both places required chartering a jet for $11,000.
September 14, 1998
WCW Nitro 9/7 Piper did an interview, reminiscent of someone babbling on but totally out of touch. He said he didn't like being put in that position but agreed he's team with Page on the show, but said War Games wasn't about teams, it was every man for himself to get a shot at Goldberg.
Ernest Miller beat Kenny Kaos with a high kick in 3:07. Miller attempted another interview and challenged anyone in the company to come out. Fans chanted for Goldberg. Nobody came out.
Goldberg pinned Scott Putski with the jackhammer in 52 seconds. More matches like that and the anti-Goldberg backlash will pile up a lot of momentum.
Other Notes I never considered this, but the fact Bill Goldberg is Jewish has become a tremendous p.r. coup for WCW. There are many important media power brokers that are Jewish, and for that reason, the idea of a Jewish world heavyweight champion is one they are willing to do stories on. Goldberg has been getting several stories a week around the country in major newspapers with more to come and this past week was even in the New Yorker with a story on a Rabbi and his daughter watching wrestling every Monday night to see him. The Miami Herald just did a story on parents Jed and Ethel.
Spin Magazine is working on a Goldberg piece. Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly are also working on pro wrestling pieces.
WWF has produced a very limited quantity of "Austin rules, Goldberg sucks" t-shirts for sale at some major mall stores.

WCW Fall Brawl BEST MATCH POLL Raven vs. Perry Saturn 84 Chris Jericho vs. Fake Goldberg 8
Whether Fall Brawl set a new standard for awful in PPV is a debatable issue. What isn't debatable is that it was near the top of any list of the worst PPV wrestling shows ever.
With the exception of a very good Raven vs. Saturn match, a funny comedy spot with Chris Jericho and a fake Bill Goldberg (although fans live hated it because the set-up implied Goldberg would appear and he didn't), and the good news announcement by Tony Schiavone that doctors believed they were able to get all the cancerous cells out of Jim Duggan's body in the operation three days earlier, there was nothing of any value whatsoever during the three hours.
  1. Chris Jericho (Chris Irvine) defeated a fake Bill Goldberg in 1:15. It was all comedy. First Jericho was walking around lost backstage trying to get to the ring. Then Goldberg's music played and a guy who looked to be about 5-foot-2 came out, who I believe is either a Georgia indie wrestler who uses the name C.C. Develine or sometimes jobber Johnny Attitude (who I believe was the most likely of the two) since it's said he just recently got his head shaved and got a Goldberg tatoo on his arm. I believe Develine actually just a few weeks ago was at a Titan TV taping looking to play the role of a fake Steve Austin (he does a total Austin gimmick as comedy on indie shows). He did all the Goldberg mannerisms and Jericho even sold the spear, before beating him with a Lion tamer. The crowd felt ripped off since before the first match they made the big announcement to the live crowd of a Jericho vs. Goldberg match added to the show. They really needed to have the real Goldberg do a run-in after the match so at least fans would see Goldberg live. Actually this was one of the best parts of the show but some didn't like it because it was exactly like a gimmick done just two months ago with Rey Misterio Jr. 1/2*
WCW Thunder 9/10 Goldberg beat Rick Fuller in 1:38 with the jackhammer. They did a lot of UFC spots. Hogan and Disciple interfered and Goldberg speared Disciple.
After Goldberg's match and before and during Ray vs. Nash, the place began emptying and there was no crowd heat.
WCW Nitro 9/14 Finally Goldberg pinned Sting to keep the title in 8:07. A lot better than you'd think. Sting did his best job in a long time. Finish saw Sting get the scorpion on after Goldberg missed the spear. Hogan ran in and kicked Sting off, and Goldberg used the spear and jackhammer. After the match Hogan attacked Goldberg with pathetic offense, and Hart ran in, or limped in, and made the save
Latest rumors, and again, any plans in wrestling more than 48 hours from now are subject to change and long-term plans are almost definitely not going to happen like that, but anyway, the title is scheduled to go from Goldberg to Hogan to Nash, or from Goldberg to Nash if they can cut Hogan out of the equation, although that may all be to keep Nash happy because a happy Nash supplies lots of good ideas
Other Notes It appears the top matches for Halloween Havoc on 10/25 in Las Vegas are Hogan vs. Warrior, Goldberg vs. Page, Rick Steiner vs. Scott Steiner no DQ, Hall vs. Nash and something involving Sting & Hart depending upon where the storyline has gone by that time
There was an AP story about the latest fiasco on the road on 9/15 in Mobile, AL for WCW Saturday Night tapings that drew 3,988 paying $78,925. The original booking was for a Goldberg vs. Giant dark match, which was the only match advertised. After the problems in Terre Haute and Peoria, it came out that Goldberg had also been promised Mobile off and as it turned out, Giant missed the date as well because he was taking care of his problem in Nassau. The newspaper ad, which only listed one match, also had seven photos of wrestlers, only two of whom appeared. They did change some of the advertising and not list a main event, but that was after most of the tickets had been sold. In the building they made no announcement and when the show ended the crowd was furious and chanting refund. After the problems in Providence, that wasn't going to happen again. The story quoted the building manager, Jay Hagerman as blaming WCW for the problem. Alan Sharpe of WCW claimed that photos of wrestlers in a newspaper ad are listing people that could be appearing and not necessarily would be appearing. Oh boy was that bad. Anyway, WCW in the local newspaper story said that anyone who saved their ticket stub from this show can get a free ticket to the next house show in Mobile. This also resulted in the weakest merchandise night for WCW of the year at just $4.65 per head because at these shows where Goldberg no-shows, they sell no merchandise for anyone when people leave the building
September 28, 1998
NJPW notes Keiji Muto has talked of going to Nitro to challenge Goldberg for the WCW title
WCW Nitro 9/21 Alex Wright came out and said he was sick of WCW. At that point, he wasn't exactly alone. He challenged Page and said if he won, he'd get the title shot at Goldberg. Fat chance. Mike Tenay insisted that Page is the people's champion. Maybe the Village People, but not any other people. Page won with the diamond cutter in 1:26. The people's champ (now let me get this straight, why is he the people's champ and not Rocky?) did an interview and all the people were chanting "Goldberg" at him. Some fans were booing him and others were quiet. Thankfully the Mug Root Beer commercial came on and the old ref was the best thing thus far on the show once again.
Other notes At press time, the scheduled matches for Halloween Havoc on 10/25 are Hogan vs. Warrior, Goldberg vs. DDP for the title, Scott Hall vs. Kevin Nash, Rick Steiner vs. Scott Steiner no DQ, Konnan vs. Eddie Guerrero and Billy Kidman vs. Juventud Guerrera for the cruiserweight title along with something involving Sting and Bret Hart in a key position although I'm not clear where their story line will be at that point
People were furious about Goldberg not being there and there were a lot of Nitro sux chants by the fans in the parking lot after the show as well. It had been hinted that this would be Goldberg's one year Anniversary since his TV debut was 9/22 of last year in Salt Lake City. He was there and fans knew it since many knew he was in town the previous day for an autograph session (he arrived two hours late which a lot of fans also knew). This is a true story. Because Goldberg has been getting so much positive press from being Jewish, they didn't want to get the Jewish community mad by having him wrestle on Rosh Hashana. You know, because 32 years ago Sandy Koufax (this totally awesome baseball pitcher for the Dodgers) wouldn't pitch in a World Series game although that was on Yom Kippur, which is a much bigger Jewish holiday and someone got confused between the two and decided not to have him appear

2014.09.05 16:31 LansdowneStreet Chuck Noll and Weeb Ewbank: Six Degrees Of Great Defense

One of the themes football fans have gotten used to throughout the years has been a stellar defense taking all of football by storm and competing for a championship largely on the force of the defense alone. This has brought organizations trophies, and helped others change everything entirely.
(Note: I do not intend this piece to declare a “best defense in NFL history.” First, there’s no way of possibly knowing which awesome defense was better than which other awesome defense. Second, I have a horse in that race and therefore am too biased to successfully declare such a thing. The defenses that I will mention in this article as well as many others have valid cases of their own. This is simply an exercise in tracing lineage.)
You know the usual candidates, so much that I won’t even list them just yet. A few of them are in the conversation automatically, the rest are left up to individual preference.
The strange pattern emerges when you realize that many—not all by any stretch, but a lot—of these historic defenses can be traced all the way back to two legendary NFL teams: The 1968 New York Jets, and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ famed “Steel Curtain” of the 1970s. Those two teams brought a number of concepts to NFL defenses that are still in use to tremendous effect today.
You will see an evolution of Weeb Ewbank’s Jets in week one of the NFL season. You will see a continuation of Chuck Noll’s defensive philosophy as well. Think of it like the Kevin Bacon game: For these teams, you can play Six Degrees of Chuck Noll, or Six Degrees of Weeb Eubank. Let’s look at these historic defenses and see if any fans can see their own defense in there.
Let’s start with Ewbank. Weeb Ewbank is probably best known for his work with the Baltimore Colts in the late 1950s, including one of the most famous football games ever played, the 1958 NFL Championship against the Giants, nicknamed “The Greatest Game Ever Played.” Johnny Unitas was a Ewbank product. So was defensive back Don Shula, who famously would go on to be Ewbank’s successor in Baltimore. After Baltimore, Ewbank went to the growing AFL to coach the New York Jets of the Joe Namath vintage.
The 1968 New York Jets were aggressive on defense. Their 43 sacks were good for third in the AFL and 10 above the league average. Against the run the Jets were best in the league, holding opponents to 85.4 yards per game on the ground. The Jets were known to swarm on defense, and it showed in Super Bowl III, their crowning achievement. Three interceptions in the first half against league MVP Earl Morall and, of course, the heavily-favored Colts. The Jets were a defense that took a lot of risks (they gave up over 30 points three different times that season) but often reaped the rewards of those risks by forcing poor play on the other side of the ball. Aggressive defense creating opportunities with swarming formations. Does that sound familiar to any fans of any specific teams?
Weeb Ewbank’s defensive line coach in 1968 was a man by the name of Buddy Ryan. Ryan learned quite a bit under Ewbank (and defensive coordinator Walt Michaels) with the Jets, working there until 1976 when he took the same defensive line coaching position with the Minnesota Vikings. The Purple People Eaters, largely forgotten to NFL history, were another risk-taking defense that attacked the quarterback and tried to force mistakes. (Motto: “Meet at the quarterback.”) Ryan came in toward the end of this period, but it certainly shaped his coaching philosophy. While the Vikings, much like Noll’s Steelers, had a formidable front four they were happy to send people to assist those four in the pass rush. In 1978, Buddy Ryan became the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears.
Another defense that needs no introduction, the Bears of the 1980s were legendary. Mike Singletary (drafted in 1981 with Buddy Ryan on the coaching staff) led the unit, and Ryan was the creativity behind it all. The most famous thing the Bears brought to the table was the 46 formation, a very aggressive formation that stacks the defensive line and makes for many options involving the blitz. That’s how Joe Ferguson of the Detroit Lions got knocked unconscious by a sack in week 17. That’s how the Patriots in Super Bowl XX were ground into a fine powder. It didn’t matter that they carried themselves in, let’s say, a unique fasion (in fairness, they weren’t there to cause no trouble…) or that this was a particularly loaded era of football that required them to play Bill Walsh’s Niners in the regular season, Dan Marino and the Dolphins for their only blemish, Bill Parcells’ Giants in the divisional round, and Eric Dickerson and the Rams in the NFC Championship. They were overpowering.
After a falling out with Bears head coach Mike Ditka, Ryan found himself in charge of the Philadelphia Eagles as a head coach. This paired Buddy Ryan up with one Reggie White, the Minister of Defense. If you enjoy the blitz. If you enjoy watching quarterbacks fear for their very lives, and you haven’t heard of the 1991 Philadelphia Eagles, consider yourself excused to go watch Youtube videos of the defense of your dreams. Perhaps no defense—not the 85 Bears, not Dick LeBeau’s Steelers in the 2000s, not Ryan’s son Rex and his Jets of 2009—blitzed as successfully as the 1991 Philadelphia Eagles. Mike Golic, Seth Joyner, and Eric Allen were all on the Eagles with White that year. Clyde Simmons had 13 sacks that year. White had 15. The Eagles as a team? 54 sacks. Like the 68 Jets and 85 Bears, #1 in yards allowed. Philadelphia went 10-6 in 1991 and failed to qualify for the NFL playoffs, but that defense deserved better.
Worth noting that Buddy Ryan lost his job with the Eagles after the 1990 season. The 1991 Eagles were coached by Rich Kotite. Yet that defense was started by Ryan and exhibited many of the hallmarks of Buddy Ryan’s defenses. The assembly of that defense, if not the execution, can be attributed to Ryan.
In 2000, Buddy Ryan’s son Rex found himself a part of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens, another punishing defense that was not afraid to send linebackers after the quarterback. As an assistant under Brian Billick and defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, Ryan had a hand in the NFL development of Ray Lewis, one of the top defensive players of his era.
Rex stayed on with Baltimore, and when Lewis pursued his head coaching career Rex Ryan became Baltimore’s defensive coordinator. While he never got another ring with the Ravens, the defense remained one of the finest in the league throughout Rex Ryan’s tenure. Now with the Jets—mind you, the team where this all began—Rex Ryan continues to put his own twist on a swarming, “meet at the quarterback” defensive philosophy that the NFL may never outgrow. His brother in New Orleans is also keeping the torch alive, using his take on the philosophy to try and repair a Saints defense that just needs to keep pace with their passing game.
Chuck Noll’s Steel Curtain really needs no introduction, but their style of play is often misrepresented by the hype. Yes, the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1970s had some very strong men that could put any quarterback on their back. They were not, however, a particularly blitz-happy team. Not that they refused to send people. From the linebackers the Steelers demanded versatility; the abilty to blitz when needed and drop into a zone when appropriate. Those linebackers were responsible for the middle of the football field. It was the Steelers’ front four who applied the bulk of the pressure: Joe Greene, L.C. Greenwood, Ernie Holmes, and Dwight White. Linebacker Jack Ham shone as both a pass-rusher and a linebacker in pass coverage as well, racking up interceptions throughout his career. Cornerback Mel Blount made the Hall of Fame operating out of a zone that required him to read the quarterback and jump passing routes, as well as forced him to make open-field tackles. The vertical passing game was the responsibility of the safeties. Does that sound familiar to any fans of specific teams?
The final championship the Steelers won in that Steel Curtain era, the 1979 season, included a new addition at cornerback. Mel Blount’s playing partner did not set the league on fire exactly, though he did execute his zone very well and get the job done. What’s notable is that he learned Noll’s defense, and it shaped a coaching career of his own. Tony Dungy was hired in the mid 1980s as a defensive assistant under Noll in Pittsburgh. From 1984-1988, Tony Dungy was Chuck Noll’s defensive coordinator, tweaking the Cover Two zone the Steelers used to try and fit a changing league.
After Pittsburgh, Dungy caught on with Kansas City as a defensive backs coach. He re-emerged as a defensive coordinator in 1992 with the Minnesota Vikings. In 1993, Minnesota ranked first in the NFL in yards allowed. The Vikings utilized an opportunistic zone, asking their cornerbacks to read the quarterback and jump passing routes to create interceptions while the front four provides the pressure. In 1993 and 1994 Minnesota made the playoffs. Both years they were eliminated in the Wild Card round.
Dungy’s next stop was Tampa Bay, where as head coach he took the philosophies beneath Chuck Noll’s Steel Curtain, got together with coaching journeyman Monte Kiffin to adapt them, found players who could thrive in that system, and now that adaptation of what he learned in Pittsburgh has a name all its own: The Tampa Two. The fundamental differences being that the Tampa Two slightly tweaks the cover two zone to better utilize linebackers, and through an interesting wrinkle these defenses seem especially equipped for the pick-six (as shown in the careers of Ronde Barber, Charles Tillman, Derrick Brooks, and Lance Briggs).
From Tony Dungy’s staff in Tampa Bay came Herman Edwards, who installed the Tampa Two briefly with the New York Jets and saw a brief Jets resurgence, but not necessarily as a result of the defense. Dungy’s longtime defensive coordinator in Tampa, Monte Kiffin, stayed with the Bucs in 2002 after Dungy was fired. Kiffin maintained the defense he had helped build, and that defense won Tampa Bay the Super Bowl after the 2002 season. (It is little coincidence that the Buccaneers saw a large dropoff, especially on defense, when Monte Kiffin left to assist his son’s coaching career.) It seems odd—even from this biased perspective—to compare the 2002 Buccaneers to the Steel Curtain, but the themes are there. The front four in Tampa Bay provided nearly all the pressure, between Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice. Derrick Brooks played in his zone so well that he scored four touchdowns (plus one in the Super Bowl) during the 2002 season. Ronde Barber was so uniquely and perfectly suited to this zone that many people mistook his immense ability as the product of a system that has never quite produced another Ronde Barber. As for the safeties, John Lynch was among the most punishing defenders of his era.
Many of Dungy and Kiffin’s assistants over the years were poached by other teams in an effort to create the same magic. Rod Marinelli was hired to be the head coach of the Detroit Lions, which did not go particularly well, though Marinelli has found more success as a defensive assistant and is now in the defensive coordinator job in Dallas. Raheem Morris, defensive backs coach for a long time in Tampa Bay, became Jon Gruden’s successor and, for a brief period in 2010, seemed to be putting something together. Of course, by far the most well-known among this group was Lovie Smith, former linebacker coach in Tampa Bay turned defensive coordinator for the 2001 St. Louis Rams and eventually Chicago Bears head coach. Now he’s returning to a Tampa Bay team that should be very well-suited for his defense. The most successful former Dungy assistant? Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin. (Like the Jets, a cycle that began in Pittsburgh has produced a coach in Pittsburgh. This is also true of Tampa Bay, where the Tampa Two began, bringing Smith in.)
Once Dungy left Tampa Bay, he quickly found a new head coaching position in Indianapolis. It’s true, the Colts were never known for their defense during Dungy’s time in Indianapolis, but they did manage to field a defense good enough to hold Peyton Manning’s leads in 2006.
Indianapolis faced off in the Super Bowl against the Chicago Bears, Lovie Smith’s team and a fantastic iteration of that philosophy that began in Pittsburgh. With a tough front four, a versatile linebacking group led in stature by Brian Urlacher but led on the field by the incredibly athletic Lance Briggs. Charles Tillman was coming into his own as a Tampa Two corner, taking opportunities wherever he could to disrupt. The 2006 Chicago Bears nearly won a Super Bowl on defense and a truly formidable special teams unit. Perhaps the only reason they did not was that the great defense the Bears were running essentially had Tony Dungy’s name on it.
