What firing him now accomplishes is that it's "addition by subtraction". It gets rid of a guy who shouldn't be there in the first place. As for an OC, I think Cooter would be a big upgrade over Gase and his caddy. Williams can be the acting HC, and if somehow the team does a 180, be considered for the permanent job - but I would still want them to do a full search to see if they can find someone better, preferably an offensive-minded guy. SOME of the players they brought in are hurt, but most are not. The OL is intact, including the two "upgrades" they added. Ty Montgomery isn't hurt, yet Gase seems to think he is since he hardly ever plays him But the problem isn't who's hurt, it's Gase's game plans and playcalling. Even if the team were 100% healthy, they wold be handicapped by his playcalling and game management. We'll see whether your faith in him to improve is warranted.
