I could write a scathing post about how incompetent the owner and coaches and players are but the only thing that is going to do is make the flamers happy. Not going to do it. Let us look at the overall package and see what is salvageable and what needs to be changed, shall we.
1. Coaches- I like Philbin, I can see a difference in the team from when Sparano was here, these guys respect him. He runs a good ship and I think he should be kept. Sherman, has to go, the same old tired ass routes, the inability to change midstream is a liability to the team, for example, last night, from the start of the game Tampa had 8 in the box and there were not going to change and we kept running the ball and putting the O in bad down and distances, should of just thrown the ball. We never attack the center of the field, we never run crossing routes, it’s just bad. Croyle is a keeper; D has played very good this year, we BEAT INDY AT INDY and CINCY who was on a 4 game win streak. Why do we lose to inferior teams, go back to Sherman. Depending on what transpires from the Martin thing, the other 12 offensive coaches should be evaluated they may need to be replaced. But let’s let that play out.
2. Players – Martin gone, Cancer no matter what happened, you should of approached your boss not walked out and caused this huge media fiasco, Incognito, depending again on what happened, but in many eyes he is damaged bad now and the media will not forgive us for keeping him, but personally I think he got thrown under the Bus. Carroll needs to go, he is the worst frigging CB in the league, enough said. Oline needs to be seriously looked at, last night showed; when Ryan T has time to throw he is as good as any QB. Wallace was a huge mistake, I thought wow we are going places but he has the hands of a stone god and runs horrible routes. Oline, Oline, Oline
What does this all mean, I do not want another complete house cleaning, it will be 3 more years again before we are a threat, we need to hold on to some parts and get rid of others that are not working, like restoring a car. I do not want to hear, the team is struggling to learn the new system of this head coach and staff, for 2 years.
3. Ireland - Has to go, you did not do your job when you drafted Martin and the two CB last year, they cant even get on the field and beat Carroll what does that tell you. You failed to see the deficiencies of the Oline and thought CLABO was the answer. Thanks but lets try someone else.
So what do we do:
Keep Philbin, Keep Ryan T, get rid of Ireland, get rid of Sherman, revamp the Oline, clean up the coaching staff, get Oline in FA and draft Oline, WR, Safety, and if the CB's we got last year in the draft suck, than another one of those also.
