A new feature here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Rich Kotite:
In The Great Philadelphia Fan Book, Glen Macnow uses the phrase "bumbling idiot" to describe Rich Kotite.
Perhaps the most famous of his screw ups was when he went all Milli Vanilli. From Wiki:
The beginning of the end of the Eagles’ slide happened after a botched
two-point conversion attempt. In a rain-soaked contest at Texas Stadium, the Eagles scored a touchdown with 5:27 left against their division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, cutting their deficit to 11 at 24-13. Against objections from his staff, Kotite went for a two-point conversion, and Eagles’ quarterback Randall Cunningham
was stopped short of the end zone. Afterwards, Kotite blamed the error
on the weather. "It was raining very heavily at the time," he
explained. "And we looked at the chart and misread the chart." Kotite
had a chart suggesting when an extra point should be kicked and when a
two-pointer should be attempted, but since there was no protective
sheet on top of it, the ink ran in the rain.
If Kotite did nothing else, at least he got to rock some quality old school Birds gear as seen above.
