Huh? That statement is mind-boggling! I guarantee if Bobb McKittrick took over this line, their play would measureably improve adn we'd get at least 2 guys in the pro Bowl. An excellent position coach can do wonders with even average talent as Bobb and others have proven. Mckittrick, through a seance, could do a better job with this line than has been done so far.
You have a shovel and some sort of voodoo ritual that's going to bring him back?
Anyways, I have no idea how any of you judge positions coaches from your couch. It seems like the answer to any player not being good enough is always on his position coach around here. You dont know that McKittrick would have this line playing better than it has. You really don't. Maybe these guys are playing as good as they can?
Anyways that isn't even the point. Firing a position coach (or cutting a player) does not mean the person replacing them is going to be better at the job as the guy you just fired (or cut). Maybe he will be, maybe he wont. With something like an OL coach it's really hard to tell.
