    Honestly the whole staff probably needs to go. It's naive to think the team only tuned out the head coach. If Bickerstaff was essentially our defensive coordinator, he spectacularly failed at that and didn't deserve a promotion.

    We need JVG or Thibs!

    cosign.

    They might play harder for a while, but this is a band-aid on a gunshot move.

    Honestly, if the team did not listen to McHale why would they respect and listen to his subordinates?

    We do have some history with this working though, Don Chaney out - Rudy T - in.

    Bickerstaff is still moreyball...we need a system and a coach that knows x's and o's. Now i don't really know what bickerstaff is capable of so i'll watch but if i start seeing this heroball **** again im gonna lose my ****. That offense is like listening to babies cry for 2 and a half hours.

    Yea I think we'll have to bring in a coach/staff from the outside to fully turn it around. I realize that doesn't happen instantaneously though.

    We'll see, hopefully he can connect with the players a bit and restore the defense.

    I just don't think Bickerstaff is the the man. Defense has been the problem all along. How is he going to change that now???

    I was guessing this thread would arrive one game in. But you beat even that pessimistic estimate. Well played sir! :)

    Well Finch is supposed to be the Xs and Os guy and he has a louder voice so it could work out.

    Don't forget the 2004 Astros. But we replaced Jimy Williams with an external hire and a big name (Phil Garner).

    If we fire the entire coaching staff today. Who should coach the game today? I suggest a random person on Clutchfans should be selected, so we can make fun of them of how terrible they are.

    He just a rental until we hire a legit coach. Once that's done then he will get the boot as well.

    OP you should know that already.
