chandon Posted December 17, 2007 Report Share Posted December 17, 2007 IMHO, I just see nothing changing for this team in the forseeable future without changes in the coaching staff. Sunday's game showed that this team has lost its heart and has no will to win. Even Carson, whom everyone agrees is a very talented QB with a bright future is slipping into mediocraty. I think one part of the team has recently showed a little bit of spark - the defense - because of all the flack it was getting it decided to show up for a few games, but even that is sliding back down. A lack of desire to win and a depression is like a malaise...a fungus which seeps through the team and stops it performing. Nobody can be bothered any more. It will not matter one jot if we get good draft picks or good FA's. If this disease is not halted and reversed we will be in the same position next year.Again, IMHO, it is the coaching staff who is responsible and that starts and stops with Head Coach. He has the ultimate responsibility to jerk the team around and envigorate it and energize it and motivate the players to want to win. He has to discipline the players, and do whatever it takes to get them to perform. We can continue to make every excuse in the book for bad performance - from injury to scouting - but a good manager gets the job done...period. I was happy to let Marvin continue for another year, but now I'm just not so sure. If the players won't even play for pride, then we are in serious do-do. If his assistant coaches are letting him down, then HE has to take the necessary steps to replace them. He has to do whatever it takes to get the best out of the players. I feel we actually have a reasonably good bunch of guys...the vast majority of which are under performing. They are not doing what they can do. That is down to poor coaching, and that is ML's responsibility. So what do you think ppl? Is it time for a clean sweep of the coaching staff? Defense not been playing well, regardless of injuries, until lately? Offense not being playing well, and too much been put on the passing play? Lack of discipline in the team? Does it all add up?Or is this just pie-in-the-sky because MB won't ever do jack? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
