Sometimes karma is a beautiful thing!
Turns out that with a Marty Schottenheimer team, all you have to do is stay with them until the playoffs . . . and then you can count on them to self destruct!
I guess the Chargers shouldn’t have put so much emphasis on peaking during "Raider Week!"
For those who don’t know and haven’t guessed, Marty Schottenheimer hates the Raiders - a team that he says “will always self destruct in the fourth quarter.” Admittedly, in recent years he’s been right - although most opponents haven’t even had to wait until the fourth quarter!
But consider this:
With 200 regular season wins as an NFL coach of 3 different teams, Schottenheimer is the winningest coach ever not to take a team to the Super Bowl.
And the least winning coach ever to take a team to the Super Bowl?
That would be Bill Callahan, with only 15 regular season wins as an NFL Coach (and now out of the league), who took the Raiders to Super Bowl XXXVII.
That’s Bill Callahan – 1, Marty Schottenheimer – 0.
Choke on that, Marty!
