I was listening to ESPN Radio today in my car, and Colin Cowherd was on. He's usually pretty funny, but he also knows his stuff. He said firing Tice is like surgery. If you don't need it, don't do it. If you really think Tice is a top-flight NFL coach, then keep him. However, if you need surgery, there's no point in waiting and living with pain for an unnecessary amount of time, just do it. In other words if you don't think he's a great coach, just fire him and get it over with.
I'm inclined to agree with him.
