It's the knee jerk reaction, Monday Morning QB, Fantasy Football world we live in where everyone's answer is to throw money at the problem instead of hire the right staff, draft well, develop those draft picks into great players, and add in a veteran free agent here and there. I for one don't want a team full of Free Agents, but I don't want a team full of kids right out of college either the consistently good teams have a good mix. Hire competent coaches who have a knack for developing players (Bruce Arians, Pitt Offensive Coordinator) who has had a influence on Roethlisberger, Mike Wallace, and kept the Steelers offense going even without a strong running game. Don't hire a poisition coach who's never been a coordinator, this team is filled with 1st and 2nd rounder from the last 3-4 drafts. Not only the Bucs had these players rated as 1st and 2nd round talents a lot of experts and other teams did too. They don't need to throw money at the problem they need to develop the talent they have and sign a few free agents who can be productive. They don't need an Aso, or a big name free agent just impact players to show the youngsters how to be Pro's. Besides why would a big time free agent come to a team that is far from a Championship?

Disagree totally with this article. 1. New England fired a HC and hired Belicheck- I'd call that a pretty good move even if it cost them some draft picks.2. Miami fired a HC and hired Shula away from the Colts- I'd call that a win3. Pitt after decades of failure, fired their HC and hired Chuck Noll- seemed to work4. After a decade of dominance, Dallas started to slip into mediocrity, so they fired long time coach Tom Landry and brought in Jimmy Johnson- 3 Superbowls5. Who was the coach fired before Walsh took over?6. How long did Green Bay stink before Holgrem was hired?7. Dungy hired at Indy??--SB8. Wyche fired at Tampa- multiple playoffs 9. Dungy fired at Tampa-Super Bowl10. Who ever was fired at SF last yr11. The guy before Sean Peyton12. The guy before Tom Caughlin I'd say it isn't who you FIRE but who you hire. Fire a bad coach and replace him with another bad coach and who cares. But fire a bad coach and replace him with a Noll, Belicheck, Shula, or anyone that can win a few SBs and you're set.IOW it ain't who you fire, but who you hire to replace.
