Love this hire so far. After the last few coaches this guy really seem to get it. Saban had coach speak and tried to sound good, but Tony seems like a football fan and not a status guy like Saban was. Tony sounds like he speaks from his heart and tells it like it is. LOVED his quote at the end. Basically said that the one thing he knows is his team will be in shape. Said stamina is the most important thing he knows and that is for the long haul. Not 16 games in shape but 18-19 because that is what it's all about. Tony sounds like someone you want on your side and if you cross him your done. Might not be forever but people will have to earn his respect back and it might take a while. The other great line was about rookies. Said you shouldn't have questions about 2nd year players. Shouldn't have to ask if he is good enough and question their ability after year one. If you do than you didn't do your homework. My personal opinion is that this last years draft will be very good in terms of getting this team to the next level especially with the coaches we will have in the building. Cam and Saban seemed to tell people what they wanted to hear and impress the owner. Tony might be but something tells me different. We've a FOOTBALL FREAK for a coach who eats and sleeps football and knows what it takes to turn things arouns. Didn't realize he was part of coaching staffs that started out year one in the NFL with Cleveland and Jacksonville, than Washington and Dallas. AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE GOT A FOOTBALL COACH. !!!
