Tedy Bruschi made that same comparison on ESPN earlier. And with a hiring like this, I'm not about to argue.
It won't shock me in the least if JaMarcus Russell finds a home here in a couple of years.

Good luck getting that theme song out of your head
I was at Georgia Tech when Chan Gailey was head coach there. I had classes and ate meals with some football players who had played under George O'Leary and also under Gailey. To a man, they all said Gailey has an incredibly weak personality. Wouldn't even so much as utter a curse word when he was trying to fire up his players. I remember when Reggie Ball was installed as our starting QB (barf), apparently Gailey didn't tell anybody of the change despite the fact that everyone on the team was under the impression another returning player (Demarius Bilbo) had already won the job. Instead, Ball just started taking first-team snaps right before the season started. None of the guys respected Gailey. At all.
If this guy can't even control a locker room full of college kids, how the hell is he supposed to handle an NFL team? If for some reason they re-sign T.O., this team is going ever further down the tubes. Talk about inmates running the asylum.
As Richard Deitsch pointed out the other day, imagine if Ray Lewis was officially on the ESPN Payroll. (he apparently doesnt start until closer to start of the season) Would they trot him out as an "expert" in this matter?
