Not making a crappy special teams unit upgrade is a bad sign for the future, IMO. Where is the accountability???
Personally, I never believed that firing someone is an instant upgrade. I also never believed that is the only way to hold someone accountable.
I don't know what this FO is thinking. I don't know that Joe Marciano is coming back as ST coach. But if he was, I don't know that I would have a problem with that.
This organization is already facing criticism because we released two of the most electric kick returners of the 2012 season, while fielding one of the worse special teams.
The question I would ask is, "is Joe M a good coach or not?" If I believe he's a good coach, he's not going anywhere. If I do not have faith in him, he's gone.
Our opinion of Coach Joe may be very different than theirs for valid reasons. We only see what we see & they see a whole lot more.
There was a time when Special Teams was the only good part of this team. As both the offense & the defense improved, Special Teams progressively got worse.
Is Coach Joe picking his players, or is he being told what he will work with? That could be the biggest part of the problem right there.
Our STs in the play offs wasn't too shabby, once they got starters & other role players on ST.
So I'd be more worried about how they approach ST more than if there is a coaching change or not.
