I've seen a lot of differing opinions lately on how JS is handling the team. This started as a reply to a comment, and just got too long.
While I don't think that JS is going to lose his job anytime soon, I will say that once you lose a classroom, it is much harder to corral students than if you had them with you in the first place, (if you don't mind the teacher-student/coach-player correlation.) No, the players aren't children, but we all know adults that can act like it if they are not called on their bs. It is fair to say that JS has started losing them (at some point, probably when he modeled losing his emotion and acting inappropriately.) He has to clean his house before he is able to tell his players to do so, or he will not be taken seriously. When you let undesired behavior go on too long, and THEN try to do something about it, it is usually ineffective. Too often lately, it seems like JS turns to the refs after a bad penalty instead of his players, (this statement does not take bad calls into account - those are a different animal altogether.)
It is not too late, by any means. However, JS will have some work to do when it comes to being more credible where controlling emotion and channeling it appropriately are concerned, imo. Maybe Raiola will be on the sideline as an assistant coach when we draft a center next year and get into the player's faces when they screw up.
