I think we can look back to last December with sharpers' ominous words to know something tragic was about to happen---"who will show us the way?" (Paraphrasing---but you get the drift) and then an odd off-season---sharper and Glenn both decide to quit the team? Both solid veterans and quality leaders---if you heard Glenn's show on 610 you knew he was an intelligent class act...but he quit? I'm not buying it. -The coaches and management knew there was a possibility they lost the team. -Casserly didnt address the line in the off season because at the time it was believed to be a mentality issue rather than a talent issue. -Foreman, sharper, Glenn out. Of course this raises an eyebrow. What does casserly do to stop the bleeding? He begins buying back players (and securing young talent in preparation for the breakdown?). Davis, Pitts, and company are gifted with nice contracts...the other players are watching...can this help? -Capers spends the off season with a close eye on the offense allowing fangio far too much freedom with the defense. All of a sudden we have an issue on both sides of the ball. I can assume this because we have yet to see a capers classic defense. -Perhaps palmer was at the spawn of the problem, but his offenses performance on the field was bad as well. What happened? Fired----and fired in a hurry. 2 games? I saw those games.... I know how bad they were. In palmers defense it was the #1 and #2 defense. The problem was deeper, and capers put him out the door fast. Maybe this could appease those unruly players? No such luck. The players have spoken with their performance. They will not be happy until capers is scalped. I don't know how to take this. The talent is here...ive seen it. The coaches lost the players. Something happened behind the scenes-something happened in a practice. Were a few Charles woodson quotes short of an all out "Bill Callahan Mutiny". Maybe those start next week...or maybe its status quo from the players...more coach speak from the players because they already know they've sabotaged capers' job and our season. My question is: How high up the totem pole does this go? Is casserly seen as a medic by the players or culpable? Things to look forward to: -At 0-6 David Carr will be benched if mcnair has decided to keep casserly. -More coach speak from the players because they already know capers is done. Why should they be seen as bad apples around the league for a lame duck coach? (Oddly enough theyd rather be viewed as bad players by fans...) -No heated comments from Gary walker? Yup. Cause he knows. -An off season bristling with free agent activity. Capers/fangio and company will be let go the day after our finale. Coaching candidates will preferably be 3-4 disciples...but if mcnair thinks he can get an elite coach in here hell scrap that along with the previous regime. -A top 3 pick. (Geez can we skip the season and get to that already?) And finally... -A BRAND NEW 4-YEAR PROJECT!
