Smitty has given up his share of softies and his play doesn't merit a huge extension, but he's far from being the #1 reason why this team could not make the playoffs this year.
Anyways, RIP 2013 Yotes.
If anything I would give a breakdown of having a failing season overall of 40% not beyond their control/ 60% beyond their control.
This team has not given the kind of effort it should have like it did the past 3 seasons but the lack of an owner and a shorter season really did us in more.
