Mike Smith Fired

Recommended Posts

Didn't think it would happen but excited as we can now take that next step in evaluating talent as the main excuse is gone.  Think we see a change come Sunday, won't be pretty but should be the start of something new as the talent is there at least in the front 7.

THANK YOU! 

 

Had this happened two weeks ago maybe we would have beaten the Falcons. Whatever. Better late than never. Glad Koetter (unless this came from team Glazer) has some level of accountability for his staff.

Wonder who the interim is. But the DBs coach needs to go too. 

Linebackers coach Mark Duffer will take over as the interim DC

I wanna see what new play calling does for this defense. It certainly helped the offense... I think Koetter has been put on notice.

I hope this Mark Duffner guy(our new DC) will do better than his college days:

This was due to the implementation of his run and shoot offense and quarterbacks John Kaleo, Scott Milanovich, and Brian Cummings. However, his teams were notoriously weak on defense, frequently giving up points so fast that even his prolific offense couldn't keep up. Duffner's only winning season came in 1995 when the Terps finished with a 6–5 record and started with four consecutive wins.

Haha oh gosh. Well at least he can’t be worse than Smith. We at least get the mid season change we wanted.

We literally just need an average defence and we can go far.

This change has needed to happen for a while and whilst it’s never nice to see someone lose their job, this is the only move that could have been made at this stage.

Koetter might just have saved this season and, ultimately, his job.

when ur the worst in the league for 2 years in a row, it is impossible for Duffner to do a worse job.

Monte Kiffin s run in college before coming to the NFL wasnt great.  Duffner could fail, as we know Mike Smith has already.  A no risk move.
