No doubt about that. But he should also take into account what the actual cause of a team’s or a subset of a team’s problems. For example, is the o-line struggling because of bad coaching? Or is it because of young inexperienced players, coupled with the lack of “weapons” available to the offense, resulting in defenses not having to defend the whole field. Are wide receivers not stepping up because of bad coaching, or is it something else.I was referring to line managers or assistant coaches, in this case. My point was, in this business, the leader should always be evaluating the fit of not only players, but his staff.
Very, very few people are in a position to make those judgments. That makes it very difficult to second guess any decisions that SF has not even made yet regarding assistant coaches.
But I do agree that SF should be having these kinds of evaluations and discussions with his staff on a continual basis. I’m as concerned as everyone else about the current product on the field. But I also know that we still have five more games to go. (Unfortunately, we also have several of our key playmakers hurt or out right now. This team is in dire need of depth.)
