Maybe you're right, but I feel it was more the defense kind of falling apart in front of Nitty and that long streak from December to February where Nitty played pretty solid (which also took a pretty big ware on Frank) that enticed Hitch to give Esche the starting job come playoff time. So I feel it was more the organizations misduing in overplaying Nitty and not having a healthy D in front of him.
