What exactly is your definition of “inherit”, here? DD was assistant head coach for two years before John Hufnagel retired to the back office. It’s not like Dickenson just came in off the streets to become head coach - he played a very significant part of building the team even before he took over the HC reins.
Besides that, most of the Stampeder receiving corps and half of the defensive and special teams players who will be taking the field on Sunday were hired after Dickenson became head coach. By your apparent reasoning, the only head coach in the league right now who would qualify as having not inherited a team would be Rick Campbell (because he started when the team started) or Chris Jones (because he is both HC and GM and he burned the team to the ground when he came on board).
[i]For the record, Johnny thinks the Stamps will win this time. But, if they don't, won't some fans get impatient with DD? [/i]
Well of course "some" fans will become impatient. Some fans think that winning a Grey Cup is a walk in the park. Some fans put up ridiculous polls asking stupid questions that nobody with any modicum of football IQ would ever think for a minute would make sense. Luckily, we don't let fans like that run football teams. We let them shout in online forums instead.
