1. Get rid of Gene CHECK
2. Get rid of Mularkey
3. Get rid of Gabbert

1 down, 2 more to go.
Glad Smith is gone, he is a horrible talent evaluater and needed to go.
Although I think Mularkey will ulimately be gone when a new GM comes in it is unfair to blame a 2-12 on him. He had zero talent to work with thanks to Smith's complete draft failures. Nobody can win with no talent.
Take a look at where the previous batch of coaches are that also could do nothing with Smith's picks. Jack Del Rio, Mike Smith and Dirk Koetter may all be shaking hands during warm ups at the Super Bowl.
I was never a fan of drafting Gabbert but he got put in a tough situation with Garrard bailing 2 days before the season started last year. (Yes I know he was cut, but he went to JDR and GS and told them he didn't want to play anymore). Gabbert was never brought in to start right away and wasn't given the coaching time as someone who was coming in to start. Then he got thrown to the wolves behind a horrible O line with a cast of receivers that were underwhelming at best.
I do think he needs to go because he is ruined in that organization. Maybe new scenery will restart the kids career.
