This, plus the core of this team was basically built during the Nolan era.
That also. And the team he inherited was probably the least talented team in the history of the game.
Like i said, he had alot of shortcomings as a HC, But he is one of the best DC's in the league, and he was a pretty good talent evaluator, and did alot to turn this team in the direction it it currently in. Just couldnt put it all together as a HC. The major thing he lacked was the ability to put a solid coaching staff together after his staff was picked off one by one after his first two seasons.
