I'm not certain Bradley is the problem, I just think that we have an average collection of players that arent capable of beating the top skilled teams very often.
Mexico has quite a few players that have played for some of the best teams in the world, including a 23 year old ManU phenom striker.
The U.S. has Dempsey at Fulham (good team but mediocre for the EPL) Howard at Everton, and Donovan who can play Everton level when energized. Most of the rest of them play for Bundesliga teams as role players. Its an okay roster but many US fans have expectations exceeding our current talent crop.
If you want to take a gamble for glory, you fire Bradley. If you want the U.S. to continue playing its counter oriented, speed style devoid of skill or creativity, stick with Bradley.
The first option would be good for guys like Adu, Agudelo, Dempsey. The second would be better potentially for Donovan, Bradley, Altidore.
