  • Is Jonesey> Dave Dickenson

    Do you think Dave is a little miffed that Jonesy got the call up to the big leagues and not him? Do you think Dave may try to manuever for a move like this himself to re-establish his own self worth?

      Does Dickenson have any old buddies from way back when that are currently in the NFL who'd hire him as an offensive specialist?

        Dickenson probably has not been on a self promotional tour the last 2 years.

          The best way to get that kind of a promotion is to know or have buddies in key positions in the NFL. If Dave wants a call he better get in good with some of the guys in top nfl positions!

              Self promotion tour = winning.....

              Naylor had mentioned that there was some early NFL interest in DD.......early this offseason.

                Yup. I'd say he outweighs Dave by a good 40 pounds.

                  Beautiful ^

                  Jones s exit strategy should be studied at West Point

                    These guys all have dozens and dozens of contacts all over the continent be it in the CFL, NCAA or NFL contacts. And the way the football network works one doesn't need to have direct contacts. Sometimes all they need is to know somebody who knows somebody. Dickenson bounced through 4 organizations when he played there with guys in the same locker room such as Mike Riley, Norv Turner, Mike Holmgren as well as a few others still active on NFL and NCAA coaching staffs. Heck Huf becomes a contact. He spent 8 years down there and has tons of contacts who could reach out to him if they wanted some info on Dickenson.
                    As CRF noted recently young offensive minds seem to be the NFL flavour of the day so t
                    here is no doubt that Dickenson's efforts in Calgary haven't shown up on NFL radar screens.

                      Dickenson has mentioned on the radio a few times that he still keeps in touch with Drew Brees from their time together in San Diego. I'm sure he has some good NFL contacts as well, but given that Jones cut his teeth in some of the southern U.S. states he may have a more extensive network.

                          I believe Dickenson is quite well paid in Calgary and likes the community. He would also seem to be heir apparent to Huff who is nearing retirement so he appears to have a good gig set up. He and Jones are motivated by different criteria I would guess ..

                            These guys all have vast networks of contacts and take every opportunity to grow them. The longer they are in the business the more their network grows in numbers and value. Bob Ackles said he always answered every call that came his way from anywhere in football even if he didn't know the other guy from Adam. He figured every call was a chance to establish a new contact or strengthen an old one. He might be able to help the guy out with some info this time and maybe next time the other guy could help him.

                              Yes, that is a very intelligent philosophy.
