i think we took a dive after that 'zona playoff game. that's when the momentum downhill started. we never made a climb after that. thanks, "it is what it is".
2010 was inevitable and had to happen for us to go forward. we just didn't do enough to get us pushed back up the hill.
replacing hurney would probably have helped (depending on who we got to replace him). firing fox after the '09 season would have helped rather than creating a lame duck year. that was bad on JR's part...but i can understand him 1) not wanting to pay for 2 coaching staffs and 2) not thinking that fox would tank the season.
i look at it the same way i did with kasay and jake.
it was time for jake to move on. we just replaced him with the wrong QB(s). neither moore or clausen were the guys we needed.
it was time for kasay to move on. we just replaced him with the wrong kicker (mare).
it was time for fox to move on. apparently we replaced him with the wrong guy.
i think we finally got it right in QB and hope we did with the kicker.
hopefully we get it right with the next GM and HC hire.
getting things turned around is all depending on the tone set by the new guys coming in.
agree with everything except.......... I think we have the right HC.
