It is a tricky supposition for Irsay. He knows that some coaches would do a better job, but are they available? Do they want to come here?
The state of affairs is that it is time for a change. Something has to change to stir things up, and you just hope that any change in itself will be a catalyst for improvement. My point is that even if Irsay doesn’t feel that he can find a high caliber HC, he needs to do something to not look stupid, so Chuck is gone no matter what. Not necessarily only his fault, and I’m convinced Chuck knows this.
