By: Brad Chandler Brad Chandler Sun, 19 Oct 2008 19:39:08 +0000 Why do organizations hire head coaches who have zero success – such as Wade. I have been a fan for 30 years and this is disgraceful! Put Garret at head coach – he can’t do any worse. Everyone knows you can have the best player at every position but won’t win if you aren’t properly coached and playing as a team. This has nothing to do with Romo being injured – Romo doesn’t allow 30+ points on defense. Do the right thing Jerry – get a good coach – bring back Jimmy!

I get what you’re saying. I’d just point out that the team collapsed in December (again!) last season before losing in the first round of the playoffs. Adding to that that Wade has NEVER won a playoff game as a head coach, I’m very, very concerned that all this talent is being wasted with him at the helm.

By: scott scott Sun, 12 Oct 2008 04:35:51 +0000 I can understand the sentiment.

But I think it’s a huge overreaction.

The Boys have had two mediocre games.

The Skins are looking great, and it went down to the last minute and an on-sides kick.

Cincy is 0-4, but they took the Giants to overtime in Palmer’s last game. Should Coughlin be fired? Of course not. The Boys didn’t put them away as soon as they should have, but they did put them away, and put up 31 points in the process.

Look, as a Boys fan I’m concerned that they haven’t looked as sharp as we expect them to be. We expect them to be great every game, and they’re not. But I’m not going to panic and jump off the ledge and call for the coaches firing just because we have two games where we look somewhat mediocre at times (though still explosive at times), one of which we win, the other which we lose by 2 points.

Hello, we’re 4-1 in the season! Oh, but fire Wade because you don’t like his personality! Yeah, that’s the ticket.
