I didn't put in the dates, but my sequence is right as far as the point of the post. He asked if there was any sad sacky type mentality and I just stated that the Oilers were flying high till the collapse. The collapse was what brought Ryan here. The team had a milkquetoast type personality in Jack Pardee, but Pardee never had the awful body language or poor leadership traits as the Kubiak regime has. A little bit of a Mr Magoo, but certainly no schleprock wowsy, wowsy stuff. Ryan did inject more toughness to the team, but I would not compare it to this situation.
