This could be sold as an event for one of the home games. Slap a york day!
In hindsight, it was definitely a very bad move. For some reason, John Dork just felt he had to make that move and he was just chomping at the bit to do so. In fact, I imagine that there could not have been anyone in New York angrier at the 9ers' comeback win against the Giants in the playoffs than York because it meant he had to put off firing Mooch for a whole extra week. In all honesty, what killed me about Mooch's final season is that no lead no matter how great was ever safe with him as coach; man, that used to just make me go crazy. On the other hand, Mooch had the ability to get a lot more out of the team than they really had, so I guess we should have been thankful that we had him as our coach. But in the end, the whole Mooch stay with the 9ers kind of turned into a marriage gone bad. It would have been best to have found a way to make it work, but it wasn't working and everybody needed to move on in different directions. And in super duper 20-20 hindsight, God Mooch should have never gotten involved with the idiots up in Detroit – talk about your all-time epic fails.
