It's a tough call. Thing about Pat - when DeChellis left, gone were Talor Battle, Cormley (the prior year), David Jackson and Jeff Brooks. The only holdover was Tim Frazier (who's had significant time in the NBA)...and not much else. Getting DJ Newbill was PC's first break...and he's been firing on all cylinders since.
What's striking about PC is that he laid the same groundwork that Franklin's now using to build the depth he needs to make football a powerhouse once again.
A good team has to have players capable of making plays...oh, wait - we're so there!
