    The uglier this thing gets down the stretch, the easier Mike's decision will be if The Whisperer doesn't retire. Bidwill/Keim deferred to The Whisperer and he dug in, so there's no obstacles to holding The Whisperer accountable.
    Why does any of your hate for Arians get Bidwell and Keim off the hook. The buck stops at the top. If he isn't accountable to them, they need to go.

    It is not unusual for a HC to have control over his staff.

    That is false, Keim has said he wasn't the final say and didn't make the picks.

    Nothing gets them off the hook. They properly deferred to The Whisperer when he dug in his coaches, that was a bad move by The Whisperer as we all now know, so The Whisperer is accountable to them and should be fired. Now if they act like The Whisperer and turn the other cheek while he lets his buddy(s) off the hook then they are just as guilty as The Whisperer.

    FYI I don't hate The Whisperer, I hate the concept of keeping friends employed when they fail and I like the concept of holding people accountable. Maybe that's a distinction without a difference, I will leave that to others, suffice to say I know that a coach saying he wants a ring or nothing and then not doing what it takes to get that ring is absurd.

    I would assume it's not only not unusual but pretty much the norm league wide. Now if the coach picks bad coaches then he can find himself fired, which should be the case here absent a retirement.

    Lets hope we pick a coach who can pick coachable players and is so good he makes the GM a figurehead in the organization.

    Keim has done a pretty good job making players available to BA, minus the disaster at Oline. (injuries have made some of that unfair to Keim).

    I still go back to keeping Amos and the punter as proof this team gave lip service to winning at all costs ala NE.

    Of course it was lip service the window was 2014 and 2015. It was simply a pitch to the season ticket holders. Last years team doesn't sniff a SB with Ray Guy punting and Lombardi coaching the special teams.

    If the presumption here is that they are top 10 in all 3 aspects of the game, then the odds would be astronomical that they wouldn't be a SB contender.

    2016:
    Top 10 O in yards.
    Top 10 D in yards.
    One of the worst ST.

    Really hope that team can get a coach. To get them back on the winning tracks. Would love for B.A. to go to sportscasting as he is a knowledgeable person. Well liked and friendly from what I hear.
    Ready for January 2018!
