DT could also just know he's pretty much gonna get rid of Deboer after this season, and so he's just posturing by raising expectations. So when the team doesn't do as well as he expects, he has reason to fire PDB and can back it up with the expectations he set at the beginning of the season.
If, by some chance, the team does do better than expected (playoffs) then he probably won't fire him. So i think he's just putting himself in a position where its not a concern to fire PDB in February or after the season or something...
