We also lost Desmond Bishop for the season, torn ACL.
Worst part is, he was only on the field for 29 snaps this season.... 29 SNAPS?!?!?!?!
He lead the team in tackles throughout the preseason, yet we gave the starting job to Marvin Mitchell? REALLY?! Mitchell currently ranks 528th in the league in tackles, which is actually tied with Desmond Bishop, who is on the field a lot less... but I guess Frazier and company don't like putting their best talent on the field.
Frazier is supposed to be a defensive coach. Are you kidding me?
We need to fire Frazier for the betterment of the franchise.
If Frazier is a defensive coach, then why is his defense on pace to give up more than 500 POINTS this season? As I mentioned, the way things are going, I'm not sure how ANY of the coaching staff survives this season. As my brother says, if we have a cancer on the team, the cancer has to get cut out.:flame:
The HC, OC, and DC are essentially unqualified for the job. Frazier had no previous head coaching experience, Musgrave has been an OC twice before and failed miserably, and Williams has no previous defensive coordinator experience. And they've shown that they're certainly not figuring it out.
Something's gotta give. Idk, what firing anyone is going to change, but I don't think Musgrave deserves to stay. Williams probably needs to go after the season, and Frazier too. I just feel like firing the guys won't change anything. I don't see much that we have in house that can come in and turn the ship around.
This season is lost. Hope we get lucky in the draft next off season.
1) The season isn't lost yet. I know that sounds stupid and blind... but it truly isn't. It would take one of a run, and those runs don't happen without a key change in personnel. Luckily, we have one of those coming up with the addition of Freeman. Granted, he isn't going to help the defense, but it gives us a fighting chance. I'm not saying it it happen. In fact, I really doubt it. But the fact remains that the season isn't over yet.
2) Frazier and Williams definitely need to go. Williams I am OK with despite many people's opinion of him here. But that doesn't matter, when Frazier goes so will all of his assistants. We need to clean house with the coaching staff.
Yeah, adding Freeman and his 47% completion percentage is really going to turn things around.
Also, in regards to your comments that I bolded... I thought the same thing when Childress was fired, instead his assistant became HC.
Like I said, I doubt it will happen. But stranger things have happened, and Freeman is better than the other two options. He might not be the QB of the future, but he IS the QB of the rest of this year. And until there is no other option, I will keep pulling for a W each week.
