Dude, I want Rick Smith gone as much as the other guy (see the title under my user name), but Gibbs succeeding at UH means nothing. The level of competition in the NFL and C-USA is completely different.
It's a lot simpler than that. Just look at the draft picks from the last 5 years. A lot of them, especially the mid to late round draft picks, have turned out to be complete busts. I remember at the beginning of the season when Rick Smith was getting praise for having so many UDFA on the roster. Many never stopped to think maybe that was a bad thing that our team could field so many UDFAs. Maybe it was a testament to our lack of depth.
All I see are bad decisions, from Ahman Green to Ed Reed. Getting rid of Glover Quin and replacing him with an aging/declining Reed? Total Rick Smith move. Cutting Eric Winston, losing our RG, and completely decimating the right side of the offensive line COULDN'T have been a good move, yet we had to ruin the continuity because of cap issues. Rick Smith has failed this team, and he's got to go along with Kubiak and Marciano.
