DA DOES deserve some credit...he's got an extremely limited amount of talent, but he's managed to parlay that little bit (it's really only about 2 months of success way back in early 07 when nobody knew anything about him and he was tossing short balls behind a GREAT OL) into multiple millions, and he may have garnered himself some long-term shelf life in the NFL by Mangina artificially expounding his limited skills.
He's like the Charlie Weiss of NFL coaches....and, although it's dirty and wrong to exploit peoples expectations for money, you have to give them a LITTLE credit for fooling people at the highest levels...and they both are rich from their lies...
