Jacoby got cut because Kubiak was pissed that he muffed the punt or they had to get under the salary cap.
Trindon was cut because they needed the roster spot for someone who didn't finish the season on the active roster.
Most likely he wanted Ball, Braman, & if I remember, McMannis was pretty good too.
& he got stuck with Earl Mitchell.
Actually we ALL (including us fans) wanted Jacoby cut from this team. We have only ourselves to blame for letting a pro bowl kick returner go to another team.
But like what others are saying, we only see game time... we don't know what's going on behind the scenes.
At the same time, we had one of the worst STs in the league. Our team won't be that much different from last season, so it's hard to believe we'll get better in this regard. So I'm all for changing the coach. What's the worst that can happen? We rank last in STs? Oh wait... we're already there.
