Shula inherited a pretty good Colts team before he literally built the Dolphins. Either you have patience to see the progress or you don't, and too many fans don't. And not just this generation. Our fans were against Landry and in truth they were all over Jimmy too. This is nothing new. It is just as short sighted now as it was then.
I know. I was just messing with you Hos. I've been a TT fan since the 70's. Its been a rough life of fandom. I love the hire and have been pulling for Kliff since mid season. Tubbs was washed up and never fit in.
He's real young, but Techs AD, Hocutt, was his age when he first got his chance as AD.
