Ricky, this is not about Preifer/klewie.. it's about a special teams coach who has failed at his job, presiding over an aspect of football games that can flat out effect the outcome of games and seasons.
ST play has regressed in all areas.
When Locke gets "lauded" for the 1 in 10 punts that DO NOT suck ass, and your holder/punter and Kicker are routinely missing kicks that were considered a "gimme" and those "oopsies" moment cost you games, It falls on the coach.
HC's, OC's, DC's, ( not our puppet/parrot) on other teams get fired or repurposed all the time for being directly responsible for a teams overall failure to execute in the area of a coaches expertise.
The bigger question, in my mind, is why do you support Preifer?
Do you like what he has done, or are you just so giddy that he fired Klewie, that you will overlook anything he does or doesn't do from that point onward?
I can't get on board with this thinking.
I don't know the numbers but think we routinely start out with better field position than our opponents on KOs.
We don't allow diddly on KOs and PRs for the most part. Locke sucked first 10 games of year but has picked it up the last five.
2 biggest gaffes of the year were yesterday(bad snap) and Chandler Jones continuing his domination of Kalil.
If he is causing Walsh to regress, I will be on board with firing him. We need Walsh to get back to his automatic ways.
CPatt also not the same guy he was in 1st game of year. Priefer's fault, probably not. Injury and mental issues, probably.
