Yeah, I'm starting to think O'Shea is in over his head at this point. He was good early in 2014 when he was a breath of fresh air and new to the team, giving a little bit of a spark there, but you gotta do more than that as a head coach. You gotta be able to:
1. Constantly bring new game plans to the table every new week - I think he's failed to do that, and the results are showing by staying mostly the same and giving poor performing offensive displays against good defenses, and it doesn't seem to matter who the OC is.
2. Willy's had his time and not getting any better it doesn't look like, and O'Shea really should be willing to make the tough move to pull him when he's struggling and give Nichols a shot.
3. Player discipline looks like a real problem right now, and I just don't see him doing things to fix it. But on top of that, this team is badly underperforming and it's not because they don't have talent, it's because the talent is being minimized not maximized by the coaches.
Now if O'Shea goes Walters will too no doubt, though if it were left up to me I'd take an unpopular route of keeping him. The reason is because he has gone out and brought in by far the best talent available, which is what you want in a GM. Where he failed was in the Willy signing to big money, which may be the tipping point here, but he has given talent around him, or at least plenty to make things work. Problem is Mike O'Shea and the assistant coaches don't know how to make it work it seems, but unfortunately Kyle Walters is anchored to O'Shea so if one of them goes down, the other will too.
