A month after Dolphins Truth started to talk about the possibility of Mike Shula becoming our head coach next year, the rest of the media is starting to wake up too.
It’s still a little surprising and a little flattering when the mainstream media and other writers start to agree with us at Dolphins Truth, but they always seem to be a step or two behind.
Remember the pre-season, when the media was talking about how easily the Dolphins would make the playoffs, if not win the division and wrest it from the Patriots? Dolphins Truth knew better, and now all the media is acting like they knew we had a bad team all the while. We told you so, and we told you way back in August.
Remember when the media said that Joe Philbin would be fired last December? We were virtually the only sports site who confidently stated that Ross would not have the courage nor intelligence to fire that stinkbomb of a coach that Ross himself had foisted on us. We were right, and Ross’s decision cost us a 1-3 start and all but ruined the season.
Remember when (each week actually), we kept telling you how horrible Jamar Taylor was? Meanwhile other writers kept building him up and got so excited about Jamar’s chances to start this season and make a difference. He made no difference.
Dolphins Truth doesn’t break news stories ahead of the major players like the Miami Herald or ESPN. However, we’re proud of our track record of diagnosing problems before the others even realize there’s a problem. We’re proud of seeing things a little bit quicker than other outlets, such as the very real possibility of Mike Shula coaching us next year, Or of Dave Shula managing a steakhouse. Okay, a little humor there.
So at a time when many of us are talking about Sean Payton and others, what do you guys think of Coach Shula coming to Dolphins?
