You guys are putting alot of faith in a guy thats pushing 70.
I don't care what anybody says, anyone who thought that the Cats were going to be a "great" team in 08 clearly was whistling in the dark. Obie has performed miracles in the past, but to expect him to turn around a 3-15 overnight is alot to ask. To expect that he will be around to oversee a 2-3 season rebuilding process is optimistic, to say the least.
Are the Ticats better this year than last? For sure....I don't think that the off season additions made a big difference, but at least they are hanging around in games. But are the players good enough? I think everybody knows the answer to that.
Taffe is doing the best he can. Of course he is...is that good enough? Probably not. Changing coaches isnt going to change the level of talent. You think Danny Mac can teach Williams how to not throw like a girl???? Can Obie teach Jesse not to get hurt???
The Point I'm trying to make is that maybe Obie can't live up to your expectations. There is a lot of work to be done, alot of holes to be filled. Alot of trial and eror with player signings. To expect that kind of committment out of a guy that age is unrealisatic.
If this is gonna work it will take alot of help from the Caretaker on down. Obie, coaching staff, scouting.
There are BIG decisions to be made...What do you do with Printers, Jesse,Zeke, NML???
Is Obie the guy you want making these decisions?
