Rome wasn't built in a day. Rebuilding an organization after years of bad management doesn't happen overnight. Firing Maciocia was the right move but a move that will pay dividends in the long term provided they hire a good replacement. At the moment, the on-field product is going to suck regardless of how many coaches are fired or players cut. However, now would be a great time to hire a new GM and have him immediately make a decision on the coaching staff: whether Hall & co. stay or a new group comes in, you want the men in charge to benefit from a half-season of pure player evaluation -- deciding who stays and who goes, which schemes suit which players, etc.
To be clear: the goal is no longer making the playoffs or putting together a winning streak, but laying the foundation for a competitive Esks team next season. The team could go 2-16 and it would still be a victory if they're able to assemble a good group for the 2011 season.
