I agree that Hall should be adjusting his coverages more to suit specific situations (eg 2nd and 10, and DBs still dropping back giving the underneath route when we need a stop), but I don't think the D has played badly enough to merit the firing of the DC. If he continues to fail to make adjustments, then maybe, but he's got a good history as a DC and I'm not prepared to give up on him yet.
Berry, on the other hand, needs to be fired or shot. Pronto. (Kidding about the shooting, BTW :twisted: )Unfortunately, he is a buddy of Taman's, which means he is going exactly nowhere until we go 0-18 for two consecutive seasons. Personally, I'd have no problem getting rid of both, Berry and Taman.
Ken Miller could step in. I know he is "retired", but he is still part of the Rider brass, and it would definitely be for the good of the team. I also would have no problem if the Riders could get permission to talk to Dave Dickenson, or bring Marcus Crandell back in the OC role. Crandell could apprentice under Miller for the rest of the season and then take over as full OC after we lose the next Grey Cup to Montreal again, or next season, whichever comes first.
I'm not sure about a rookie head coach wearing two hats. Its a move that has failed in the recent past. I'd rather give Hall until the end of the year to see if he can regain his past lustre.
Getzlaf needs to be sat for a couple of games. Same as what was done to Fantuz in his sophomore season. No need to dump talent, especially if he heeds a wake-up call.
I'm not convinced that Taman is smart enough to realize any such thing. He sure didn't see it in Winnipeg, as evidenced by his support for individuals that needed to be fired there (and who, coincidentally, showed up on the Rider sidelines shortly after Taman's arrival in Regina).
Honestly, I think that Taman is the first domino that has to fall (beg Joe Womack to come back, anyone?), and then lose Berry about 30 seconds later, and then see how everyone else reacts.
