Lawn Demon makes a great point about coaching. imo MacT's big negatives are:

1. Loyalty to the veterans,

2. Lack of creativity,

3. obsession with forwards who are basically what he was,

4. Crazy ass line juggling.

What isn't on that list could come quickly: they may stop listening.

A kid like Brewer is clearly under alot of pressure, and he's such a talent that you'd have to bet on him turning the corner eventually. However, if Brewer opts out and MacT loses him, he's in a heap of trouble.

A 10 game losing streak might not lose MacT his job. HOW they lose those 10 games could seal his fate.

My guess is he lasts the season even if they win 20 games.
