Nice post but have to disagree a bit here...even w/o Davis, you have one of the best TE's in the draft (who's lucky to get a single pass thrown his way and when it is, it's a very low % type pass), then you also have Boldin and Gore who are probably top 5 in the league at what they do then you throw in a former 1st rounder in Baldwin who's been here all year (who you tried to trade) plus James/Hunter who have played in the spread plus Miller who apparently, is a receiving threat as well...
Bottom line, there are times when coaches NEED to show their true colors and overcome in-game adversity. THAT is when you shine and earn your paycheck. If we had 3 Calvin Johnson's, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles and 2 Jimmy Graham's, could this coaching staff succeed when it matters the most?
Why does this team NEED top 5 players at every position WITH like-depth?
Basically, I hate to say it, but this coaching staff continues to show it's colors when it matters most and those colors aren't pretty.
Coaching...in close games and against good teams/coaches, coaches are the difference. Period.
