I was not negative on Coach Franklin, thought he might be a bit too loyal to underperforming assts but he proved me wrong, I did not EVER expect to witness this performance. Wow, unexpected as I still felt that sanctions were going to impact the team's on field performance until next season at the least. I was wrong about that and am pleased to admit it. What a wonderful story of a staff putting together the right pieces in the right manner to attain superior performance.
A bit like the late 1960's. New coach, changes, mediocre first season, good second season and then bang, consecutive undefeated seasons. Who knows?
