There definitely is something strange about piling on Chuck for having been too optimistic.
Just a sloppy, undisciplined team.  Garbage.

Let's just laugh at Chuck getting epically owned even more than usual.
I will vow, for the sake of peace, not to complain about David Ross between now and his first start next year- 10/26/2015

You two wanna go stick your wangs in a hornet's nest, it's a free country.  But how come I always gotta get sloppy seconds, huh?

I'm not sure what to make of the Fox hire in the first place.  Either it was entirely Pace's decision and can be defended on the grounds that the rebuild might not have to be stripped down so far and having a veteran coach who's had success might allow Pace--a young, 1st time GM--to have his cake and eat it too, or that it wasn't entirely Pace's decision which would mean he's always been a neutered GM since jump street and was a stupid fucking PANK for taking the job in the first place on that condition.

If it's #1, then hindsight tells us that it was a complete disaster, since they were never competitive and this is compounded by possibly having retarded the growth of young players by a veteran coach who tried (and failed) to win now.  If it's #2, then we're fucked, as it'd mean we're still mired in the byzantine management structure of the weird McCaskey family. 

Neither outcome is good but I think Pace will be allowed to fire his first hire without endangering his job too much...although he will not get 3 years with a new coach to shit the tub to the tune of 12-13 wins in that time, in which case he'll be canned and we get to start all over again.  Yay!

Given the decades of failure with a team that is considered to be one of the top valued NFL franchises I'm going to go with behind door #2.
Did I win a cheese straightener?
Or just a copy of the "Home Game"?

The talk of late has been Door #2. He's neutered, GM in name only.
