    Ruston Webster is the real idiot on our team.

    New FO right now please. It's time to make a change. Reinfeldt and co. have been here since 2007. Looked great for the first couple of seasons. Looks awful now. Leave. All of you in the FO - just go.

    I'm a believer in Munchak, I love how he put his name in the hat as soon as Fisher quit. He wanted the job, he loves the organization and I see him being our HC as long as Bud is still around. JC's right, Bud is loyal to his guys and only lost Fisher because he quit.

    If we don't go anywhere this year, both Palmer AND Gray have got to go. No two ways about it. I understand Munch having slim pickings when he first got the job but after this season there will be at least a handful of guys better than Gray and Palmer. Rex Ryan as our new DC and Norv Turner as our OC would be fine with me. I say Turner because I have heard many many times people say he's a great OC but not HC material.

    Certainly. But no one thought we just would flat out not show up to play and get blown out like we did. We thought we would field a respectable team.

    I understand you're neutral. But I think there's something to be said that "he overachieved last year" and "he decided to name our 2011 1st round QB the starter" is all you could come up with.

    That's not what I said. I simply stated that no HC had the time they would have liked and everyone suffered from the lockout.

    (speaking generally now)

    I just can't buy "he overachieved during the post-lockout season" and "he was dealt a bad hand with the timing of his hire" as good enough excuses to keep the guy around. And that's literally all you ever hear from anyone supporting Munch. I wish I were that optimistic. But he has shown me nothing to make me believe he's cut out for the position.

    I also find it funny(/sad) that people are so quick to refer to one game above .500 as "overachieving".

    I feel you on this. I remember thinking anything less than 11 wins meant you're a crap team that got lucky here and there, now I welcome 9-7 10-6 seasons. I don't know at what point I lowered my standards.

    I didn't like the closed competition hire. I didn't like his choice of OC, DC and their subsequent position coaches. I was wrong about Dave Ragone- he is solid.

    9-7 last year wasn't bad but we lost against the Colts when we should have won. Same thing this year. Munchak is old school and stoic when it comes to leadership. I appreciate his temperment and not braying like a jack-azz vis-a-vis Rex Ryan. But he does not OWN his mistakes- he sweeps them under the rug. And that has lost him respect from the players. He lost this team 3 weeks ago. Any good HC would hold SOMEBODY accountable for the 10 men on the field. That should NEVER happen in any game, let alone TWICE in critical situations. It is reasonable to say that blunder cost the game because it was simply a coaching gaffe. The sub packages weren't ready to go.

    The only way Bud Adams changes anything is to punch him in his wallet.

    I can't answer right now since I am honestly neutral down the middle. Ask again after the entire season and I may be able to answer one way or the other.

    Yes. He lost the team at 1-4 after we were getting spanked by opposing offenses. The 2 wins were squeakers and probably mitigated some of the player frustration because a W was obtained but you've now got Cook and Britt complaining again at 3-5.

    You can't honestly believe the majority of the guys are buying what Munchak is selling, can you?

    All our wins have come down to the last minute, I don't think anyone has quit.
