Woody's Half Measures Kill This Team
I am actually optimistic about our chances this year if Geno starts. But I suspect Rex will be loyal to his guy regardless of the competition.
That frustration led me to think about why we seem to always struggle and it dawned on me that the problems all flow back to Woody.
Woody and the people that work for him can't make the big decision:
Herm fails, but let's fire Hackett and suffer with Herm some more
Bradway fails, let's put Tannenbaum as GM but keep Bradway as part of decision process
Mangini and Tannenbaum fail, let's just fire Mangini
Tannenbaum and Rex fail, let's just fire Tannenbaum
Sanchez fails, let's develop more wildcat packages
It's always the same, we can never make a clean break so we are always left with a remnant of the turd that got us into the situation we are in.
If you bring in Idzik you have to fire Rex, if you keep Rex you keep Tannenbaum until you fire both.
Rex and Idzik are at odds. A lame duck coach and a new GM is not a recipe for success because their priorities are not aligned. And we will see this play out all year.
Woody needs to grow some and make complete decisions not these little half measures which only dooms the team to failure
