That 'rookie coach' is new to the league, but has an NFL coaching pedigree as long as my arm. He coached Gannon-Rice at the height of the Raiders pass-attack era; he knows how to run a good offense. Plus, he took over a veteran team that needed a few changes, not a dysfunctional bottom-dweller without many good veterans that needed a complete overhaul (which Obie failed to provide).
Bellefeuille, on the other hand, has been in the CFL for a long time, but has never shown that he can be an effective offensive coordinator. Can you name me a single offense of his that has been good? Saskatchewan had no offense when he was O.C., my Als had no offense when he was O.C., and until Danny Mac came aboard, your Cats had no offense with Bellefeuille as O.C.
Marcel Bellefeuille destroys offenses.
And if you have no appetite for rookie coaches, why do you want to keep DMac? Do guys that were good players get a free pass?
Is it merely a coincidence that your offense looks much sharper with Bellefeuille not as involved in the playcalling?
