I guess like everyone else on this site, I'd just like to see the Cats win some ball games.
I am one of the people who has been suggesting that the problems with this team are predominantly poor coaching.
In Greg Marshall's favour, I would say, however, that he is under tremendous pressure with the Ticat front office where he has people hovering around him like Paopao, Lancaster, Custis, McCarthy, etc. and even outside the realm of the front office I would presume he is talking to other former football stalwarts from this city like Sazio, Lumsden, Zambiasi, Mosca, Richardson, etc.
Greg Marshall, while at McMaster, was in complete control of his own program and was very successful at it even though he never produced a winner in the biggest games.
I'm thinking that MAYBE he's getting too much advice from some of the forementioned people and should think about telling them to take a hike so he can run his own show.
I remember when he took over the head coaching duties in Hamilton, he was completely in awe by the likes of Ron Lancaster and Bernie Custis and while these guys probably deserve to be revered by all of us for past accomplishments, I wonder if they are not imposing ideas from the 20th century to a 21st century coach. This MIGHT even be construed as intimidation.
If this is the case, Greg should respectfully thank these folks for their input but ultimately get the job done his own way.
I would venture to say that in All other CFL cities, the coach is in charge of coaching, particularly in Montreal and BC.
Perhaps the key to some Ticat success is to leave Marshall alone and let the team sink or swim on his decisions only.
