A hell of a quote, if he spoke this straight ad-lib? Wow, very articulate if so.

Quote:
▪ Mike Shula, son of deceased Dolphins legend Don Shula, is Denver’s quarterbacks coach, and Flores told Broncos writers this week that: “The legacy [Don Shula] left is still a part of this team. His pictures are all over the building. Obviously with him passing this year, he’s on our minds. We want to try to play some of that same tough, physical, smart football that the teams he coached played. I don’t think Mike would want it any different.”

Wow. We may finally have found the coach who can carry the torch that The Don has held out for a credible coach to carry. So far, none have been that guy ... and that includes Jimmah Johnson.

I was excited when we hired Jimmy. But then he dissed the Don and handcuffed Marino. It could have been so different because he did build a very good defense.

Yeah, the Jimmy beginning was up there for me as a Fins fan, I was so sure he was going to get the team off that perennial good but not good enough treadmill Shula had the team on and turn them into perennial winners. But his motivation as it turned out was fraudulent. He handled the thing as if he was a mercenary: come in, replace a second living legend (Tom Landry the first), turn the team around quickly, and prove to the world, especially to Jerry Jones and Shula, how much greater he was. Then he would get out on top. But the Jax game shamed him and that was end for him.

I am surprised he has grown to be such an important person in football circles having shown he was a quitter, that he would get out when the kitchen got hot. That goes against all beliefs in the sporting world. But at least Shula got his payback.

Aha! You expect the modern media to have any standards? If Hernandez survived prison it would only be a matter of time before he caught a gig with ESPN.
