Sorry after reading that I realize that it is confusing it is as I wrote it.

Firing Krueger was right. The faults in his system were well publicized, and his focus on special teams had no future for a playoff team. In hindsight, Eakins was not the right replacement. It's not a great move for MacT, but an understandable one. Doing a knee-jerk firing mid-season would only make it worse though.

Even if firing Eakins is a real option, MacT's got to put up a supportive face to the public to give him the best chance to figure this mess out.
