So the Cats ended up turfing Charlie with eight games to go. I was more of the persuasion to keep him until the end of the season until last weekend's debacle. At that point I wondered about the fact that with Charlie knowing he would be gone at the end of the season, what motivation did he have to evaluate talent for next year? Promoting the offensive coordinator at least saves on the extra salary you would have to pay for a new interim guy.
So the Taeffe era ends as an utter failure. Probably the seeds were sown with the coordinators he picked in his first year who had little CFL experience. No doubt he was saddled with some mediocre talent in both years, but there was little evidence that some skilled coaching was going on either.
Not sure what this means for next year and I'm guessing the Ticat brass doesn't know now either. I suppose the new coach could go five and three down the stretch and impress for next year, but I think we all know that's not going to happen.
Anyways, see you Charlie. Ass, door, you know the drill.
