Bill Sheridan fired

New, comments

Ralph Vacchiano just broke the news we have all been waiting for. Details, and more discussion, later.

[UPDATE: My quick thoughts on the Sheridan firing are below}

To me, this is a move that simply had to be made. No choice, even before CEO John Mara's disparaging comments Monday afternoon about everyone not named Tom Coughlin or Jerry Reese.

Poor performance is one thing, and we obviously saw way too much of that. But, when a unit completely lays down the coach cannot be retained.

One other note about this. Coughlin said a few times that hiring Sheridan was giving the players what they wanted, system continuity. They can forget that now. All indications are there is no chance anyone from the current staff will even get an interview for the job. More likely, many of them will get pink slips.
