    If we learn how to tackle this year, it won't say much for our prior "CEO" coach.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    This!!

    I commented to my dad, and whoever else would listen, about this numerous times. It looked like everybody was trying to make the big hit and missing instead of wrapping up and making a tackle! Glad to see this is noticed and being fixed.

    He is a great hire, great. Don't know how much improvement we will see, but going from terrible to average would be huge and I think the potential is there.

    Herman has been surprisingly upbeat for weeks. Hope he has got it pegged right.

    Herman does seem optimistic, and Wally seems like there is still a lot of work to left to do. It will be interesting to see what happens.
