I know this is going to be taken as a "jump off the cliff" post and as this is my first post in some time let me explain.
Wade Phillips, no matter how many posters defend him, just is not a catalyst in any sense for this team. It was utter foolishness for Jerry to think that he could "change" as we were led to believe after last season. Our team has a lack of discipline and we, as fans, see it time and time again. How many 3rd and 10's or more have we given up the last two weeks? And of course it goes without saying that the penalties are unbearable.
This team, our team, has all the talent in the world. Sure, we can sit here and pine for a better left tackle and maybe a playmaking safety, but there are teams in the NFL who are playing much better with inferior talent.
With all that being said, I want Jimmy back. You can't tell me it doesn't bother him how he ended things with the Dolphins. I listen and see him on Fox, and it's obvious that passion is still there. Does anybody remember last year his reaction at halftime after a key Kevin Burnett personal foul? Plus, with Garrett (and I'm not saying that Garrett is great, but this makes sense logistically) as the offensive coordinator and Campo as the defensive coordinator, we have some pieces that he is familiar with.
And to the people who say that Jerry and Jimmy couldn't make it work..all I can is that time heals wounds and stranger things have happened.
