Whoever ends up succeeding Jim Mora has a leg up for Coach of the Year honors next season before the Colts even take the field, as they will be taking the sharpest drop in company next year from who they played this year, based on this season's final records. And I have this advice for Mike Holmgren: Your guys better hang tough in 2002!
