That Tannenbaum went into this season without correcting many of the team's glaring deficiencies. I didn't.
I don't want to throw away another season under their "leadership", as I believe they do not possess the tools to succeed. IMO, we need to identify those to whom we will entrust stewardship of this franchise.
I understand this response, I can't refute it, or defend the results of this past season. But why is it so hard to understand that it's difficult for any team in the league to perservere with the injuries this team has had this past season? Add to that, the Tebow dynamic, the repulsive and obsessive media attention on the topic and the chemistry that was ruined?
The Tebow move could have worked, with a healthy roster, with a healthy offense, if Holmes and Keller had been healthy all year, had Hill and Kerley didn't get injured and miss games, had McKnight not disappointed and got injured, had Powell had not missed half the season, and the list goes on. It could have worked, but it didn't, and the media drove the entire thing into the ground.
I think for football reasons, the regime thought they could do something with Tebow on the team, obviously, that was a disaster, but I can't blame the front office entirely with the media scrutiny of the entire project.
Who is out there that you want to replace this regime that is so worthy of going after? The answer is, nobody, there isn't another regime out there worth "going after" to replace what we have just for the sake of doing so. If there was that GM/Head Coach, I'd understand the response from fans.
But again, the answer is not always "blow it all up" after one bad season.
