He has done a great job so far and if the drama queens on this site would exercise a little patience they might just be pleasantly surprised.
It's not what he's doing though... He did the exact opposite. He went out on the free agent market and got the exact opposite of what we needed and what he said we needed. It is a total contradiction. So YES he deserves to get blasted for this.

As for exhibiting patience, sure... I'm not arguing that he should be replaced (and I don't think I've seen anyone else argue this) but the Briere move really shook the confidence that I had in him. This was a really stupid move.
