I also earnestly hope for the best, being a win against the Als. Nothing would please me more. However, logic, based on our defensive performances this year, makes me expect the worst and a bad thumping at the hand of the Als. Our offence may keep the score respectable.
I had predicted at the beginning of the year, that if our defence held teams to 21 or under points, we would win each game. They haven't hence our record.
I predict that if we get blown away today on account of the defence, that we have a new Defensive Coordinator in place for the Argo double bill, take it to the bank. If the defence is respectable today, then I see Creehan staying to the end of the year, as he will have proved that he may not be very consistent, but that he does have the ability to design a defence that can be effective, and a good defence against the Als twice this year will give him a new lease on life.
If the defence sucks, the buck stops with Creehan.I am not certain that Creehan will be missed by the players, though they will publicly say all the right things. Perhaps a bad defensive performance may be the best thing for the future of the team, especially if it means a new and more experienced coach.
