newsflash*** Hey Dallas, you are now the head coach and have been for 14 games. its time to stop blaming others -its squarely now on you. i also noticed you didnt comment on how your special teams went from top ten into the gutter under your watch - who do you blame for that? oh, right probably Acton, whom you hand picked, and who is notorious for having crap special teams wherever he has been.

you have a lot of growing up to do Dallas. This isnt a dumb fan base. people here are smart and know this team and the market. your eloquent press conferences will only go so far with this crowd, and they are wearing thin on many of us. you just delivered us our second worst start in franchise history - that speak volumes.
Great post.

Given that the coaches have access to video of every shift of every player, Eakins should be asked what he was doing all summer, when it was he discovered the players here didn't understand basic defensive responsibilities, and, why did he keep Buchberger and Smith around since they have been here throughout the coaching failures of the past.

Don't the prior coaches share any responsibility for this issue?

Eakins made a great show in the summer over how he was carefully evaluating his decisions on who the assistant coaches would be. What was he looking at?

He is the person who has the power to make the decisions as to who coaches this team, and who gets ice time. Rather than worrying about veggie trays and the interior decorations in the dressing room, perhaps he should have been getting his priorities straight and doing his job.
