This franchise has only had one leadership that has been successful; thankfully, that lasted a long time, the reign of Shula. He ran the ball when we had power runners and he threw the ball when he had Marino. He won Super Bowls, was always in the playoffs, hardly ever had a losing season, had very few penalties and mental mistakes and had more wins than any other coach. We have tried just about everything else since he left and nothing worked. We hired a successful college and NFL coach-Johnson, whose teams were always good, but not great. We promoted from within, his protege, Wanstead (sp?), who rode on Johnson's coat-tails of good, but not great. We've hired successful college coaches, Saban, and that didn't work. We tried hiring successful co-ordinators, Cameron and Philbin, and that didn't work. We even tried bringing in a tried and true franchise ressurecter, Parcells (he helped the Giants, Jets and Patriots), and that failed. What is left to do? Where do we turn? Who do you trust out there to fix our problem? If you were Ross, a non-football guy, short of selling the team, how would you do it?
