I wasn't at all happy with the way Taaffe ran the team last year for a multitude of reasons. I hope he gets let go and the team hires a defensive coach. Whether it be Dave Ritchie or Greg Marshall I'd be happy with either. My personal preference is Greg Marshall because Ritchie is so old I don't know how long he'll stay in coaching.
p.s. If you'd like to see the Cats let Taaffe go please suggest who you'd like to see as the new man in charge.
the What, Why, When, How Where and Who
of what happened around here last year
and knows what to change to fix it. ------------- he dose? seems to me he was clueless all season. he did well in Montreal were he took over Don Mathews Established program and ran with it. - in 2007 he messed with his qb,s footwork and totally ignored D and ST. :thdn:
With a team as bad as the Ticats were last year, I don't think your "I want Taaffe back because we want continuity in the coaching staff" argument works. Why?
-All of the assistant coaches have already been fired basically, so there will be no "continuity" there, guaranteed.
-Yes, Taafe knows the ability of players on this team well because he coached here last year, but after viewing game tape, any moron (even a potential new head coach like Steve Burratto) can determine this team's strengths (some young players on the O-Line, the stable of running backs, Printers, McKay, Moreno and Setta) and this team's weaknesses (everybody else).
Why does everyone want to keep Taaffe on another year but fire the assistants? What did he show that earned him another shot?
I didn't see the team getting better as the season went on. We were making the same mistakes at the start of the season as we were at the end of the season. We had penalties galore and more mental mistakes than I can count. Plus, his play calling was often erratic and made me scratch my head on numerous occassions. And I don't think he used our personnel to the best of its ability. He tried fitting our players into his system instead of building a system around the talent we had. So again I say, bring in a new coach.
