The one thing the Oilers do different in their hiring and firing of coaches is wait until the off season. Which you would think makes sense but judging from how most coaching changes work completely ineffective.

Here is what I think now.

Eakins should be fired today. But won't be for the reasons you mention.

Eakins should be given until the 20-30 game mark to prove he can improve this team next year if he is not fired asap. But will most likely be let go in the offseason in another impulse move by Mac T. Some slick talking junior coach maybe this time.

New coach will be labeled just another mistake by the 20-30 game mark of the next season but because Mac T signed him for 5 years this time we will keep him at least one full season before firing him as well.

Isn't it the definition of insane to repeat yourself and expect different results?
