It's not butt kissing to say someone did a good job. If they do a good job, say they did a good job.

I think a lot of us liked the direction that Hickey is taking the Dolphins. Of course, we really don't know how good this draft is until the third season, but we did get two starters in Jarvis Landry and Ju'waan James that made a real difference in this team. I can definitely see the Dolphins extending their contracts when the time comes in a few years.
Aiken, Tripp, and Fede may be good players, but we'll never know until they are given more playing time. Coyle is a veteran starting kind of a coach unless injuries force his hand.
