Jimmy Raye Approval Rating: Looking back at 2009


With the season now a couple weeks in the rear view mirror, I'd imagine folks have had enough time to reflect and re-assess their opinions on offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye. Most likely remain the same, but it's possible some people have changed their tune in either direction. And seeing as we haven't seen much Jimmy Raye vitriol lately, now seemed as good a time as any to put together an end of season approval rating for the entire season. How you feel about Jimmy Raye's performance over the course of the season.

Asking a yes or no question is tough because things are not nearly this black and white. One reader suggested a scale of 1-10 and I think that's an excellent way to see where people's opinions fall on the spectrum. In determining your number, there is plenty to consider, and I'd imagine everybody will consider things differently. For example, as I figure out my rating, a positive would include his willingness to adjust the offense as the season went along, particularly when Alex Smith took the helm. At the same time, a negative would be his inexplicable play-calling that involved a Michael Robinson or Arnaz Battle play at the most bizarre time.

I'm not going to give the man a 10, and I'm not going to give him a 1. I'd bet good money there are plenty of folks who will give him a 1 (not so much on the 10 side) and I could certainly see reasons for it. I think part of it depends on how much you think the offense grew or regressed over the course of the season. Although next year remains a mystery, the potential going forward did still somewhat influence my own opinion.
