the bottom line with coaches is the w/l record correct?
how can you goof on dave wannstadt when his w/l record is actually impressive. it BLOWS hermans away.You can twist it any way you want, but DW is a superior coach to herm hands down.
also, herm is NOT better than half the leagues coaches. he is in the top of the lowest third. That was already "proven" months ago when we made a complete list of all the coaches and even the most passionate supporter of herm couldnt argue where he stood when you have the list of names in front of you.

3 years ago Wannstedt had a very good MIA team that pretty much sleepwalked in the playoffs and got their asses handed to them. The next year they signed R Williams, already had one of the best D's in the league, and had a respectable passing game. They were the SB favorites after week 6 that year. There was no way any other team in the AFC was as good as them overall on paper. Not even close. So what did they do with all this talent?? Missed the playoffs completely. Last year the Dolphins were the same exact team but the D was a year older which did affect them. The were still one of the best teams in the AFC on paper and proceeded to miss the playoffs altogether again.
I'm sorry but if you want to use Wannstedt as an example of who is better than Herm, it gonna get torn apart. Herm never had half the talent that Wannstedt had. Not even half. Yet Herm has more playoff appearances in the last 3 years than Wannstedt.
