I wonder if Sheppherd will now step up as OC or will they hire an outsider?

I\'m not saying McCarthy shouldn\'t have been replaced, because he called lousy games, but the wrong Coordinator got the axe.

Hopefully they\'re saving the best for last.

Nice find gator. Apparently the bias from this board has reached the national media.

Hear me now and believe me later AB is the problem with the offense not the coach. His does well when it means nothing and screws up when everything is on the line.

I don\'t know about some of you. You\'ve missed what is so wrong with this artlicle just so you can AB bash.

Now, don\'t accuse me of saying AB isn\'t a problem, but McCarthy\'s problems have much more to do with McCarthy than they have to do with AB and this article missed that completely.

McCarthy can\'t call plays worth a crap, can\'t game plan, and can\'t avoid being read like a book by EVERY opposing DC. Those are all better reasons why he should be let go than just saying he relied on error prone AB too much.

It just goes to show how little the national media really knows about what\'s going on in N.O....and some you agreed with them.

Let me ask you a question - if Pease put Sullivan on the line, would it be better or worse? McCarthy has an inconsistent, thick, ego-maniac at QB, and no matter how you slice it that makes it harder for him to call plays and execute and offense. Brooks hurts McCarthy and the team. Period. He isn\'t the biggest problem, necessarily, but he is a problem nonetheless.

I think McCarthy\'s time is up. Time to move on and find someone that will utilize Horn, Stallworth, and our tightends better. We need more of a spread offense. Look how horrible we start off in games, we need someone more aggressive. It\'s not good being a second half team when you are down by 2 touchdowns at halftime. Our playcalling can get horrible at times especially when it\'s 3rd and short. POUND THE FREAKING FOOTBALL, I hate that cute stuff. We have Deuce back there to pick up our short yardage goodness. I\'ve seen numerous times throughout the years 3rd and 1 and we throw the ball deep down field. His time is up and let the door hit him on his way out.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

All we really know is how AB will play under McCarthy since we\'ve never seen him under another OC. So, logic dictates that it is just as likely that McCarthy has hindered AB as AB has hindered McCarthy. Wouldn\'t it be interesting if someone else comes in and AB lights up the world?

Spock out.

Yes, and wouldn\'t it be interesting if we went outside and looked up and saw pigs flying all around us?

What you do with your time is your business.
