By all accounts, Joe Marciano is a nice guy and a stand up dude.
You know who else was a nice guy and a stand up dude? Fred Rogers (RIP), of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. And I never saw any NFL team give him a shot as a coach because he was a nice guy and a stand up dude.
There has got to be more to this blind allegiance and loyalty than we see as fans. It just doesn't make sense to not hold the coach of the worst special teams unit in the NFL accountable.
