Here's my view on DA. I believe as a rookie head coach he just wanted to get the pieces in place to start the 2012 season, I think he was some what desperate and really had no good judge of character. A rookie coach flaw. I think this season will teach him a lot as to evaluate personnel and hire the right coach for the right job. I'm glad we kept DA for continuity. This year was a trial and tribulation for DA. 2013 is when he will be really tested for his decision making. I really believe Palmer and DMC can be the players we need. Knapp held us back much like Al Davis did. Also keep in mind, we now have a GM who will also be accountable, which has never been done. Here's to 2013!
