Unless Mack can make a few moves that gets this team trending in a positive direction, of course he should be fired. The team's record is awful, and what's worse is, there is not one player that he's acquired by draft, FA or trade that you would say is a potential CFL star (all-star or face of the team). The talent on this team is declining, plain and simple. How many starters on the Bombers could start on other CFL squads, very few.
Our 'claim to fame' has always been finding CFL stars at LB and RB, and perhaps on the Dline. But, even that seems to have dried up under Mack. Simpson has had his moments, but jury is still out.
When this team finishes 5-13 (or worse), Mack will be fired and a new guy hired. I'm more worried that the BoD will make a boneheaded decision again and we'll be right back where we are now. I have zero confidence that the BoD will get it right with a new hire. That is why i would rather see a complete gut - and bring in a seasoned football administrator as President & CEO. Then charge that person to put together a strong football operations with a quality GM, successful player personal guy, competent experienced coaching staff, etc. It's pretty obvious that the group we have now just can't get it done. Loyality is fine, but after a while, poor results just means there IS someone else out there that CAN get it done better than them.
For the record, i like coach Burke. He has been given an absolute NO-WIN situation, and i hope he remains in some capacity.
