Of course a mid season firing of an assistant can work. There would be a bit of an ajustment but it is not like you start from scratch.
Look at this way, I would prefer the hope and prayer that a new defensive coordinator who has the confidence of the players be how we play the balance of the season, as opposed to the proven failed situation we have now, and where there appears to be an apparent disconnect between the coach and the players.
One wonders whether there was actually someting to that brou-ha-ha in the locker room earlier in the season as it did seem to spin around Creehan.
With a new DC, I bet we go 6-4 at worst to end the year at 9-9
With Creehan, regardless of the Chris Williams magic and regardless of what Burris can do, we go 2-8 to finish off 5-13
To be honest, I am not sure anymore where the two wins will come from given that the Winnipeg might appear to be the weakest team and we know what they did to us with a 3rd stringer in his first game.
