How many games has our gameplan been the reason we lost? Now: How many games has our gameplan kept us competitive in? Almost all of them. You don't fire a coach when the team hasn't given up on them- clearly fight for them, and are staying competitive. And don't kid yourselves- this team is competitive. Don't underestimate that. Bring in a new coach and you're taking a huge chance on the team buying into what they're selling.
