Tim K asks the question Jed York will have to ask himself pretty soon: McCloguhan, Smith, Singletary e Raye. At most only two of those 4 will come back next year. The problem: i can't be just ANY two:
If you fire McCloughan, what GM would want to come in with Singletary already in place? A new GM would want his own coach.
If you fire Singletary, what makes you think McCloughan can pick the new guy and stock the roster?
If you fire Raye, won’t Singletary be upset? He’s the one who chose Raye, he probably would just hire a Raye clone, anyway.
Smith and McCloughan are tied at the hip. Who is there to take over at QB?
So, assuming he is right, which road is the better one?
It's almost a set of dominoes. If we fire Scotty, all of them probably go b/c any Gm worth having will want his own HC. That means Singletary is probably gone. W/o Singletary there, Raye is certainly gone. That would only leave Smith--depending on whether or not the new HC wanted him.
