I think Bruce's first question is right--who can say?. Personally, though, while I'd rather hit myself in the head with a coffee mug than root for a team coached by either of them, if I had to choose, I'd rather have Wannstedt. He was impressively bad at judging talent, but he did at least take the team he inherited (with Jay Fiedler at QB and Lamar Smith at RB) to an 11-5 record and a playoff win. I don't have any faith that Cameron could do that. And it took Wannstedt a few years to completely lose the locker room--it seems like Cameron accomplished that in about 4 days. Wanny was obviously way too conservative, but at least he seemed to have a plan (even it if often wasn't a very good one). It seemed like Cameron had no idea what he was even trying to do. Only Herm Edwards can match Cameron as a poor game manager.
Maybe Cameron will learn from his mistakes and grow into being a pretty good head coach, which Wannstedt couldn't do. I sure wouldn't want to be the team who took that chance, though.> Date: Thu, 4 Dec 2008 10:54:35 -0600> From: brucegb at realtime.net> To: dolphins-disc at phins.com> Subject: Re: DOLPHINS: Dave George Eats Crow> > On Thu, Dec 04, 2008 at 01:06:13AM -0600, J.
