Its time to trade Gore and Willis in the offseason.
Gore for a 2nd round pick ... he will be 28 years old
Willis for Mario Williams or Asamougha or Revis... the mlb is not an importnat position in the 3-4 defense...and hes a good player not a great player...that means overated
Then get Gruden or Charlie Weis to coach.
make tony Dungy President of all Football Operations
You're half right. Alex isn't the ONLY problem, but he is a HUGE part of the problem. In the NFL (as in life), you only have a certain (and typically small) window of opportunity to prove to others you can do the job you've been hired to do. In the case of Smith, his job is to win games for his team. He hasn't been able to do that, regardless of the dynamics around him.
So whether or not Smith is completely or partially at fault for our non-winning records since 2005, is irrelevant. Smith was hired (and paid millions of dollars) to win, and it hasn't happened in his 6 years while under contract.
It's time to move on. That's just life, bro.
