Not for nothing, his demotion had to have something to do with it, because since he came back he has been on a roll. It is a good example of how failure, when used as a learning tool, can make you better in the long run. I suspect he did a whole lot of soul searching and studied what he did that was wrong in the first place. With Chip as an example of exactly not how to handle an NFL roster, he seems to have found a very un-Chip approach that is reaping serious benefits for all of us. They built a team that was inclusive and supportive of each other, with with a coach who was brilliant, yet totally humble about it, which made him a stronger leader. People will usually follow someone who walks the walk, rather than tells them how great he is...we could all learn a lesson from Doug in that respect.

So do you look at Howie as a "football guy" now??? That's tough to answer from the outside.

NO, but I do think he has surrounded himself with better 'football' guys than he did in the past. Figuring out who they were and bringing them on board was his major accomplishment. He also found coaches who could inspire players to excel, look at how much Algholor improved this year. He always had the talent, it was a confidence problem, and Doug found a way help him get it back. No small feat mind you, how many talented guys come into the league and crash and burn because they can't handle the mental aspect? Considering NA was already in that process, his rebound is that much more impressive.
