I agree with you 99.9% Jmad...I led the charge at the beginning of the season to get rid of him SOMEHOW. But I'm curious on how he will perform now that McCraw & Co. have "allowed him to go back to doing what he was doing in Minnesota". I can't for the life of me understand how they continued to make him do something that was apparently so unnatural to him as to make his performance suck like it was. Seems to me there was giant ego trips going on and no one was man enough to say: ok I was wrong...go back to doing what feels natural to you.
We will have the whole rest of the season to evaluate how much of a failure that whole "advice" thing was.
