Why the hell would you fire Wally? That makes no damn sense. The defense was bad this year, but look at how much freaking time the spent on the field because our offense was completely useless. Sometimes thinking about things is good.
I think Mess has to be gone. I have no call on this, but I bet big donors have let the powers to be know they are not happy with the offense. Wally is going to leave or stay when he chooses to. He did not have a good year, but his defense was hurt by lack of numbers and the amount of time they spent on the field because of the offenses floundering.
Wally may retire, but there is absolutely no way he is fired or forced out. He's a hell of a football coach and the people who haven't figured that out should stop trying to pretend to understand football.
I really think too many people think the defense was bad this year because of the offense. When you look at the overall time of possession, we had a higher t.o.p. than our opponents 7 times this year with 2 other times that were less than a minute less than our opponents. The defense was just bad this year and was mostly due to personnel. This defense was just bad this year and there really is no way around it. With that said, Wally can do what he wants in the off season. No way his seat should be warm.
