I realize that I am no doubt in the minority for still believing in this coach. I won't even say I am the 'silent majority'...but I believe in Ron.
Here is why:
I don't know if the play calling is his fault or Shula. It seems to me that this is a critical area that needs to be better addressed.
Alot (everyone?) has jumped on him for his handling of playing for a field goal. I will watch the game again - but what I saw was:
A kicker that hasnt missed under 50 yards. Close to automatic as you get. Why NOT trust your kicker?
As Cam says...hindsight is 50-50... Anyway...I didnt mind the play calling. I think he would have been flambeyyed (s?) if they threw a pass and it was intercepted.
I remember last year. Very well. Many fans (right here) wasnt happy with Ron and the same old witch hunt was on until they started winning. I refuse to believe he is not the same guy.
Consider- consider what we all know. Handcuffed by the cap, poor play, injuries, and a thug getting paid doing nothing for you..how would any of us play the hand dealt to Ron?
I am all about the blame game and wow -there is alot to go around. Oline, Shula...Gettleman to an extent (misfires on who he brought in this time...)...Cam (love him....but he hasnt been the same this year...Shula's fault?)
Anyway- I don't want Ron's head. I think he can lead us to where we all want to go.
(nerd alert...this makes me want to say "I believe in Harvey Dent".../shrug).
