For once Arians and I agree - I also am thankful he was fired
So he admits to being shit canned and not retiring. Looks like the Rooney's let you save face after they booted your ass out under the guise of retirement.
Then there's this little nugget of classiness from brucie after being canned from the clowns.
“Our head coach lost the game,” Arians said. “He called off the dogs on defense. You just don’t let Tommy Maddox sit there and go against a prevent defense. He basically fired [defensive coordinator] Foge Fazio at halftime. Foge was blitzing. We had them beat. They knew we had them beat.”
Arians says Davis took over the playcalling at halftime and insisted the team play his prevent defense.
“I don’t care what anyone says. I was on that sideline,” Arians said.
