It's ridiculous.
I've probably said that before as a joke. I wouldn't seriously blame everything wrong on one person. I do agree with you though, I was glad to see him gone. He definitely did some good things while he was here, but I think we would have been better off without him.
I do believe though that being successful ultimately comes down to whether or not the players can execute, but the coaches have to take the fault when it's all over.
