Does Shula know that Miami hasn't been relevant since Dave Wansteidt failed to win anything of importance after doing well during the regular season? If it weren't for the Quarterback position in Buffalo, Miami would be most useless team in the AFC East.
Some of Shula's comments:
• That Saban let the Dolphins down: "He has run
away from the challenge."
• That Saban lied: "It's
unbelievable. There were four or five direct statements that were blatant lies.
That tells you a little bit about the guy."
• That Saban quit: "That's obvious. He quit. He
• That Saban is a fraud: "What other conclusion
can you draw? The guy likes to hear himself talk and then doesn't follow up on
what he says."
Wow, an NFL coach didn't tell his secrets and "lied" to cover them up. That never happens Don. Earth to Shula, if somebody asks Bill Belichick today if he's going to throw or run more this Sunday, my bet is that he lies about it.
On Saban "quitting," um, who wouldn't quit that situation? He got paid more money, for longer years, to work 1/2 the amount. Yeah that's a difficult thing to comprehend right Don.
The facts are this: Miami sucks, the franchise sucks, their stadium sucks, their facilities suck. Mike Shula was fired a year after a 10-2 season because he's lost 5 straight to Auburn, and that 10-2 season SHOULD have been 11-1 and a shot at the BCS if he wasn't the most conservative coach in he world. He got fired for playing to tie against Arkansas and losing in OT. He got fired for throwing throughout the entire first half against Florida, taking a lead, and sitting on it only to cough it up in the 2nd half. He got fired for running on 1st and 10, 2nd and 7, and only trying to throw on 3rd and 6.
Shula coaches in the SEC like he is coaching a C-level Pop Warner team. Iso doesn't work as the first play every game. And throwing doesn't work when its obvious you're going to throw. Other than that, Shula did a great job.
So there you have it Don. Move on. Sit tight for the next few months and when the first NFL team goes 4-0 next year, you can have your little interviews about the '72 undefeated season.
Your kid is going to coach in Jacksonville next year, so you can start calling Del Rio to whine and cry if he doesn't get his way from now on.
