    Considering the defense has been a joke since week one, it makes me wonder if we had a bye week this season he would've been whacked.

    But no, we'll get to witness the same boring ass defense for the rest of the season. :gun:

    I thinking maybe the best thing that could happen this weekend is Indy scoring 50+ points on us, and Kubiak finally blowing up about it and getting rid of Richard Smith.

    I dunno, man. Our defense is anything but boring. I mean, watching all those big pass plays against our pitiful secondary? That's pretty darn exciting if you ask me!

    I don't know about 50, but I think they can easily put a 40 burger on us. We'll score some points, but they'll score practically every possession.

    I'm not sure about 50 points - but I think we will lose and lose big. I'm also not sure I understand the wait until the end of the season mentality. Things couldn't get any worse - might as well change now and see what happens. I actually think it would help all the way around.

    We had a bye in week 2. He should've been whacked then.

    I hate to be negative 'cause I love this team, but, I guess I'm just being negative. LOL

    The defense is such a joke that they shouldn't have to have a bye week to can him. Maybe they are still evaluating his performance.

    I fully understand about not liking the results on the field but I do not understand is saying we do not have a team or franchise. Hell at least we are not the Raiders, Lions or Bengals.

    Around here showing any positive attitude or not blasting everything is wrong. You must show negativity or nothing at all.

    I do agree with Steph that if Richard Smith is fired and who ever takes over and the D improves only slightly then that person may become our DC for next year versus going outside the organization and hiring someone. Which is what I want.

    Oh and look at all the teams that have fired their coach mid-season, most are very poorly run organizations. The team that fired their DC in mid-season also is the same one who canned a coach after a 13 - 3 season. Yep that shows great stability there.

    Last rumor I heard was that Richard Smith had pictures of Kubiak and Vince Young spending some intimate time together. Shirtless. In a room full of other shirtless men.

    Kubiak: "Why can't I quit you?"

    :hobie:


    Explains a lot....

    Smith and Hoke need to go soon as the buzzer sounds in the last game.

    The defense's ineptitude under Richard Smith has made me wonder if maybe our QBs are turnover happy because they ALWAYS try to score TDs. They just may not have any confidence in our defense...

    I wonder if our defense was atleast top half of the league if the turnovers would drop tremendously...take the safe plays in the redzone and kick a FG if we need to :)
