It's like a guy in a blue color trade doing half ass work and showing up late for every day and then being pissed he's laid off.

Obviously no other team wanted him, so at what point do you say "ok time to get my shit together". If he could have got the offense more balanced and less predictable I would have been glad to keep him, for Ben's sake.
Excellent point and if I thought I was on the hot seat and the CEO of the company wanted to move in a certain direction I'd damn well move in that direction. Airhead didn't so he has only himself to blame. His massive ego and stubbornness as well as his incompetence brought about his downfall.
