I get heartburn just thinking about everything below.
Hopefully if the guy does turn out to be Gary 2.0
(or Dom 3.0) we don't wait 6 years to replace him.
I don't want to be retired by the time we win anything

Same behaviour as the last guy but we should expect a different result...??
What's the word for that again...??
Like I said, I will hold off on "getting excited" until I see what he does with the roster. Changes need to be made for sure. But it doesn't need the complete purge that was needed after the 2005 season.
And more than that, I want to see who he picks as his defensive coordinator. Lots of good names out there that you guys have already listed. But if it ends up being another of his buds.....
