The Tuna comes to town

His expected arrival is sometime on Thursday. He'll talk with the owner, the management, the coaches, and the team. He'll probably read the internal report. He undoubtedly will ask to see some game film.

And then the decisions start to be made. Among the first will be the future of one Cam Cameron. I, personally, do not believe that Cam will be back for a second season. I started to review the game splits to provide evidence as to why. But, I just didn't have the time to spend on it.

Here was the point I was planning to make: he was ineffective at time management. He often punted on 4th and short when his team was behind. He eschewed several long-range field goals that could have helped the team to fail forward fast. Winning 6 games by 3 points or less comes down to coaching. Getting blown out a few times comes down to coaching.

Next on the agenda will be a review of players. I suspect that 40% or more of the team will be turned over yet again. I'll go with the Nick philosophy that there are three categories of players: those that got it, those that are getting it, those who will never get it. I'll throw out some names in a future post.
