"Cam is my friend, he taught me a lot about coaching, and he is an outstanding coach"
If Harbaugh thinks Cam is such an outstanding coach, how can he fully explain to the fans and media, why this outstanding coach was fired at this point in the season.
I am not saying Harbaugh should pounced on Cam because he got fired, but how can Harbaugh look the fans and the media in the eye and then say an outstanding coach just got fired and expect his statement to be believable.
I've had plenty of times that I just didn't understand what Cameron was up to, if anything. Obviously not being able to finish off an opponent has been frustrating. I was happy at first how the Offense has seemed to be more productive, but they've either had a hard time just getting started, or they stall after showing that they can score earlier. There just isn't any consistency. A problem for sure but not what I felt was the major one.
My major gripe with this season has been more with Pees. Injuries notwithstanding, how does a consistently top rated defense fall to almost last in the league. The Defense hasn't really shown that they have been able to stop Anyone this year. Sure there have been injuries to "Key" players but after all, it's a Team right? I just don't buy that losing 2 or 3 "Stars" turns your whole team into Crap! Most unnerving yesterday was after RG III gets knocked out, their Rookie Backup comes in and delivers the KO punch! That's Got to be Bad Coaching decisions.
I have been complaining more about Pees all year and not so much about Cameron. After all, the D has been letting the other teams back in the game when they should have been able to hold on.
And coaches who embarrass / denigrate their personnel in front of the masses usually wind up "losing the locker room" a hell of a lot faster than those who don't...
I have to admit that I was suprised by the timing, but I am not saddened by the move. I wonder what the straw was that finally broke the camel's back?
