I'm sure PRJack will have some strong words for this article. :lol: I think Tillman's biggest contribution so far has just been his presence. Like the article says, he came in and decided to give players a clean slate and a chance to prove themselves. Guys knew they'd be held accountable from here on out. After we fired DM, the team continued to play terrible football, and there really wasn't anyone there to hold the players accountable. We had a few of the scouts acting as a GM team, but that's nothing compared to having a permanent person in place to evaluate you game in and game out. I think his presence changed the atmosphere.
Anyway, it's an interesting article. Feel free to give it a read.
They don't always allow comments... some with CTV, and I'm sure other sites. As for the firing of DM, I seriously doubt that had anything to do with the team turning around. The team went 1-4 while he was here, and then went 1-4 after he was fired. DM definitely needed to go, but that didn't start the turn-around.
