JUMPING ON J.J.

Let's take a realistic, factual look at Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson. In 1995, J.J. predicted that Don Shula's Dolphins would win the Super Bowl. They didn't.

J.J. took over this same team the next season, stating that "they were the team to beat in the AFC." J.J.'s Dolphins finished 8-8, not even making the playoffs.

J.J. stated that his priorities for this team were offensively running the ball, and defensively stopping the run. Last year they were terrible in both categories. This year, the same. After the first four games, the Dolphins' offense has averaged just 64.5 rushing yards per game, while the defense is giving up 141.5 yards rushing per game.

Is this the sign of an overexposed, overrated coach, or is it just me that looks at this realistically and factually?
