Ok, Mgobloggers, the big win today got me thinking about our future. Help me out. So I neither have called for GERG’s job (unlike Brian, Dr. Saturday, etc.) nor would I be terribly sad if RR is fired. I’m a moderate. Still, I enjoyed today’s performance, and hope RR wins more this year and returns next year (wins are great for M).
What will it take for you to lobby for GERG? Everyone concedes the D is young. Demens, Vinopal, Avery, and C. Gordon all showed improvement today. Last year the D ended strong against O-state. If these young guys continue to improve, why not give GERG the benefit of the doubt much like RR?
I suppose you could point to the wide open wheel routes (2x) today as lack of coaching. But I saw adjustments today with 4 DL, Roh (finally) moved to a position of strength, and varied blitzes/rushes.
If RR gets a pass for 3 years of poor D, why not give GERG? I can’t say RR must be fired, and I can’t say GERG must be either based on injuries and more (eg. see B. Graham’s comments).
