Everyone seems happy about this.

Cue Extreme telling us how stupid we all are in 3...2...1...

Yeah, I figured there wouldn't exactly be a boatload of tears about the announcement around these parts. :laugh2:

I am speaking with Lorenzo Alexander about it right now on twitter. He seems shocked that some fans/journalists are happy to see him go.

@onemangang97 Lorenzo, you are great. But many feel there were too many blocked punts and kicks.

@McD5fl no blocked FGs this year. He corrected problem. And a blown assignment falls on a player.

@onemangang97 @McD5fl No disagreement here. Huge improvement. Just trying to explain why some feel that way.

Sometimes change is good. I never really got the praise going around the league for this man. I have heard announcers call him "highly respected" in several games over the past few years making me think they all read this from the same place?

With him gone, Banks will be gone (long overdue) and maybe someone can come in and get a little more going inbetween the couple of excellent role players we have.

Maybe Smith just couldn't deal with our youth movement? Maybe he was like Bugel and needed HIS vet guys... I dunno. This has to be a good thing.

I've never understood it either, Dead. Maybe it's because he always seems to be intense and yelling? Kind of like the Ryan boys.

I believe our fans have just seen too much. From the Randle El punt returns, to 5 blocked FGs last season, to the blocked punts this year. And no great returner during his career here.

Enough is enough.

Coverage teams seemed pretty good this year. Eh. I'm neutral about this one.

Hope his replacement doesnt suck.

It's like you rang a bell. This is something you will all look back on and realize how good he actually was. And I will be right here bumping this thread every time to remind you. You have all spent several seasons blaming him for players making idiot mistakes. He can't play the game for them, and we have been a team loaded with dumbass sub-par players for his entire tenure.

Let's wait to make sure he's not replaced by LeCharles McDaniel before we start celebrating

Isn't he Carlos Rogers favorite coach ?

He can't play the game for them, and we have been a team loaded with dumbass sub-par players for his entire tenure.
Players' execution is in large part a reflection on their coach(es).
We can't use the "coach can't play the game for them" excuse every time a coach's unit repeatedly fails. If that were the case, why bother with coaches at all, and just let the players do their thing. Eventually, a coach has to be held accountable.
When Norv was here, many fans for a long time used that same defense of him, that he's not the one executing. But what has Norv done in the 15 or so years, since then ?

If we had a different lineup every year on ST and still ****ed up on the regular, I could see the Danny Smith hate. But we almost always had the same group of ****ty ass players. And when we added players, it was always some garbage player like Brandon banks that wouldn't make the PS on other teams. You can not dominate with sub-par talent, no coach can.

If I showed you Danny Smith's recent X-Ray which reveals and proves the actual source of the problem, would this convince you ?

The younger wide receivers didn't improve at a very quick clip under Hilliard.

The special teams have been up and down. Smith was in favor of keeping Gano while Shanahan overruled him and we ended up with 17/18 from Kai Forbath.

Shanahan also had a hand in Niles Paul getting back on returns and he looked good there at the end of the season.

Smith and Hilliard are replaceable.

Smith was in favor of keeping Gano for distance, and Kai wasn't available then. He also got overruled on Cundiff, look how that turned out.
