    If AJ fired Marty right after the loss, the fans, the media, and the players would generate a huge uproar that made the leaving of Drew Brees like a little wimper. A good anaology will be like a divorce. The father brings in a stepmother. How often the children would accept her right away? You can say the players are professional, but they are human beings as well. If the new coach doesn't jell well with the players, the Chargers would have another successful season (due to the talents) but being shortchanged agan at the playoff.

    I hanestly hadn't considered the potential backlash firing Marty immediatly after that game might have caused. But I try to keep myself from being too emotional with my Chargers opinions and what's best for the team comes first. I wish Marty was going to be our HC in 2007, but that's not happening. And it seems that from the perspective of keeping our assitant coaching staff together, and having the largest possible pool of candidates from which to choose, we should have got him out sooner rather than later.

    I think you also make a good point about players respecting and buying into a new coach. And perhaps the fact that Marty kinda fugged us on his way out the door will make the players slightly more inclined to accept a new coach. But I don't think this is reason enough to have delayed firing him. Doesn't make a lot of sense to keep a guy around just long enough to screw you on the way out.
