While I just got home, I've yet to see anything that's rock solid. Also, being "replaced" isn't necessarily how I would classify a person willfully delegating duties to another guy. Unless of course it wasn't his own decision.
Additionally, it's not like Garrett was replaced when he turned in the 31st ranked turnover team in the NFL after only his
second year, back in 2008.
I don't think it's reasonable to point to turnovers as the primary reason for firing a guy. Could they have been better? Of course. But seasons like this happen. Pittsburgh had 15 last year and 20 this year. Houston had 18 last year.
I wonder if there's any sort of influence on how often a team plays with the lead or plays while trailing that is in play. I'm just guessing that teams that are forcing the opponent to play "catch up" and take additional risks are more likely to pull in turnovers.
