As I suspected it's a semantic argument. Yeah I get the impression Kittle doesn't think much of Robin as a manager either.
Personally I'm on the fence. He's got the right temperament, can he develop the instincts and knowledge base where making the right decision is second nature. Of course it will come down to whether he has the talent to succeed to. Great instincts won't mean **** if the team sucks...
