The more the season goes on, the more you sense that Eakins is just completely lost. As in, he has no idea what to do.
It really seems he's out of ideas. He tried to implement his system (Remember the "It might take 30-40 games for players to understand Eakins system") and that didn't seem to work. He tweaked it, that didn't seem to work. Now he's just throwing out random things (line combos for example) to see what sticks. He seems completely and utterly lost.
To top it all off, he can't seem to motivate the players anymore. Most of our big guys are ready to hit the range.
We'll see what MacT does, but 'backing your guy' seems to be the only justification he has to keep Eakins. Continuity be damned, when the whole damn team looks 1000x worse than previous years(not just under Ralph imo), this is not the droid we're looking for. I don't care how many coaches we've hired, it's not a numbers game, it's get the right coach game. That's what matters.
