Rhule has been fighting an uphill battle here from the day he arrived. He was set up to fail with covid wrecking his first offseason and a massive roster turnover, and Hurney.
With all that he managed to put a respectable team on the field. I don't care who you are that was a tremendous accomplishment.
Then comes season 2 where expectations were getting high as the draft and offseason played out. Even as the qb carousel continued with another gamble behind center. Then they started out winning and looking like things may just work out despite all the holes in the team and the gambling on roster positions.
Then comes the realization that the inexperience on the team starts at the top. Those gambles that looked worth the risk caused a ripple effect when all fails at once with no realistic backup plan.
The choice to go with a young potential OC, not a young experienced OC mind you, but a guy that had not called a game at any level. Well...you now see why Rhule brought his old play caller along just in case. Probably should have thought that one though a little more.
So 3/4s of the way through his second season things have gone sideways because he chose to put his offense in the hands of a guy who had no experience at it. He's royally screwed up at qb and basically has no offense.
What happens from here on will determine his fate. The odds are not in his favor.
