Undermining the coaches a serious problem


Recommended Posts

This was over on CPND. The poster didn't give a link because it was an access article.

Smith had refrained from any criticism of the coaching staff before today. And he didn't rip them. But two no comments were mighty telling.

The first came when asked if Spurrier had lost the the players. The second came when he was asked if the coaching staff was overmatched in the NFL.

Don't forget, Smith played a leading role in paving the way for Marty Schottenheimer's departure. And, after the game, Smith talked with owner Dan Snyder in the trainer's room. I don't know what they talked about and Smith was in there to get treatment. But certain topics were bound to arise.

Now there is a lot of speculation in this little quote. I've usually tried to give Snyder the benefit of the doubt. But if this kind of thing really does happen on a regular basis, then S.S. is gonna be fighting an uphill battle all the way and Snyder is going to be a big part of the reason for his struggles.

How can any coach be successful if certain players can just go run to the owner any time they don't like something he is doing. If the owner has certain players that he goes to and allows them to affect his decision making, then we may never see a good product on the field no matter who the coach is.
