On one hand, there's merit to believing the players wouldn't perform any differently under new management because of their personalities, skill limits, etc.; on the other hand, it's hard to dispute the notion that the coach's message has become stale and that tasking the same GM who built the current roster to now retool it into a better team is just guaranteeing the same mediocre results in the future.
And this is why some fans want to skip the whole chicken-or-the-egg problem by dumping off a good chunk of the roster via trade, etc and firing the current front office. A completely new organizational culture is the only real way to turn the franchise around.
Currently, it's a culture of mediocrity. Mediocre players playing for a team's front office that's satisfied with mediocre performances and results. Can't blame the fans for being outraged at this, unless they've been lulled or cowed into drinking the Kool-Aid of the organization.
