me too. i'm quite prepared to let the professionals make these calls... not that coaches don't make mistakes...but to imply the coach doesn't *get* what a it takes to motivate and develop a particular player is just silly.
of course the coach may fail, but for a fan to pretend to know better how to develop krieder or miller, is just a silly premise.
i'd bet that, with some players, there's absolutely nothing a coach can do. some need a kick in the ass. some need to learn from mistakes. some need tons of guidance. it's way too complex for someone on the outside to give an authoritative judgment.
i'm not saying it's worthless to discuss these things...just that it's silly and kinda ignorant for someone on the outside to say 'the coach is dumb' or whatever.
