I could coach Peyton Manning and win 12 games every year.
The only reason people think Tony Romo is bad is because the media paints in that way.
The media influences opinion on casual watching football folk. I, for one, like to form my own opinions. Sometimes I am quite wrong. This is why I've always been prone to attack on boards like these because big media and I don't always see the same thing.
Dungy is painted as a good coach because he is a good coach. He may be a bit overrated, but he's not as overrated as people think he is. It's not like he's being compared to bellichick or bill Walsh. He's typically in the same conversation as guys like Andy Reid and that's pretty fair.
Dungy will turn this team into a playoff team. It's just doubtful he will turn them into a super bowl team. Again, he may be overrated by some but he's really overly criticized on cp. I don't understand why the same people who want Andy reid or bill cowher are critical of dungy.
