If Bobby Hebert disappeared off the face of the earth, I highly doubt LSU coach Les Miles would shed a tear. Hebert is a die-hard Tigers fan but also one of the biggest Miles critics going, and he was back at it again during a recent interview with Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports. Hebert is a former New Orleans Saints quarterback and has a son, T. Bob Hebert, who played for LSU last season. After the Tigers lost to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game last year, Hebert went off on Miles during his postgame press conference for calling conservative plays when his team was trailing by multiple scores. Bobby stands by that criticism, to say the least. “I know this and I actually believe this, and people say ‘Oh come on;’ but I know I’ve forgotten more football than Les Miles knows,” Hebert told Yahoo! Sports. “If you could bring me down and call plays and know what you’re doing. I would never make that statement about Sean Payton. Come on, I know. But I know when the defense is doing this and blitzing how are you going to attack it? What do you need to do? “Like its 3rd-and-10 against Alabama, you’re going to run the option? Come on. You can get away with that against Washington. When you’re playing Alabama and you have 15 NFL players, well so do they. And you got to have some imagination.” Earlier this season, Hebert was ejected from the press box for cheering LSU too loudly during their most recent loss to Alabama. At least you know his heart is in the right place. After bashing Miles for not knowing as much as him about the game, Hebert then seemed to take a full 180-degree turn. “With the success that Les Miles has had he is probably in the history of football the most successful unloved coach I have ever seen,” he said. “To dominate and as much as he has had success [to] have people not think he walks on water? No, it’s unbelievable.” So wait, does this guy love Miles or hate him? Chances are not even he knows the answer. H/T The Big Lead

  • Hebert is one of those old players that the older he gets the better he was. He is mad at Miles for beanching his son. If Hebert is so good why is he working for a local readio station.
