No more trying for the homerun when a 5 yard pickup would keep the drive going.
If in fact it was a coaching move. But the evidence seems to suggest that the move was made by ownership, pulling rank on the head coach. In other words, the Rooneys took control of a head coaching problem and fixed it. It took two seasons longer than it should have, but the Rooneys are a patient sort.
