Unrealistic expectations caused the Tennessee coaching disaster
Since yanking the rug out from under Greg Schiano in reaction to an angry fan base, Tennessee has been rejected by a number of coaches, and the search has turned turned into a dumpster fire.
Colin thinks Vols fans had unrealistic expectations about landing Jon Gruden have led to the discontent among fans, who are unwilling to readily accept a lower profile coach. With their treatment of Schiano, the fan base has now made this job toxic for any big name, and it’s hard to have sympathy for them.
Eli Manning’s consecutive games streak isn’t a reason to keep starting him
After his benching by the Giants, many defenders of Eli Manning argued that his 210 consecutive starts should have been taken into account as a representation of his dedication to the franchise.
Colin disagrees, and thinks that Manning’s consistency in playing every week doesn’t outweigh the reality that he’s been playing poorly for years. Even though Eli was consistent in showing up every week, his play has been inconsistent. Benching him was the right move for the organization, even if it was unpopular with some.
