I know that even MacT admitted that he didn't do everything the team needed, but with the changes on the team already we should be a .500 team.

Eakins has no excuses. We should be better. We haven't been hit by injuries very hard. Lots of teams miss a couple of players here and there.

MacT hiring Eakins was not a bad move though. Krueger had to go. Eakins was sought after and his coaching style probably has a lot of what this team needed. Changing a coach is a bit of a crapshoot though. It's hard to tell if the total package will work out. I like that MacT stood up for his coach too and is willing to give him some more slack.
Help me out here because I'm missing your point. You think Mac T is doing a great job and all the blame falls on Eakins yet you're praising Mac T for sticking with him. I don't get it. What or how is this going to get better?
