I never really start threads and before I do this one, I want to preface it with this; I support the team no matter what, in fact I have supported every one of our head coaches until the bitter end. I hope with all my heart that I am proven wrong and the team is headed in a positive direction.
That being said, this season has not started well; sloppy play calls, excessive team penalties, rumors of players unhappy with the coaching style or unhappy with other players, and now the benching of the QB. It now seems like our fan base is completely polarized with some placing blame on the QB, some on the coaching, and some on both.
Here are a few thoughts that I would like ya'lls opinion about;
1) Do you think the timing of the benching was deliberate due to the upcomming "winnable" game?
2) Do you think Dom and ownership put coach on notice which sparked the benching?
3) What will it actually take (wins, yards, performance) for Schiano to keep his job this year?
4) Assuming the worst (we lose most of our remaining games) and he is in fact fired, what coach has the best chance at succeeding with this team right now?
