Yeah, I just don't understand how giving Spags control of the whole team will (1) help the offense or (2) help the defense. And if it's not going to help, then why do it? I think waiting for available coaches, lack of doing anything positive, and lastly, risking some sort of spark thereby hurting draft position all play into it...whether ownership would admit to it or not.
I don't think they really want to win at this point, but would never say anything that could even be construed as such. If they fire McAdoo and the team wins two games...all the sudden they might be outside the top 5...forcing a potential trade-up scenario come draft day should they want one of the QBs. We're currently 3rd in draft order...might jump to 2nd should we lose to KC (San Fran is on bye this week). San Fran is also considering starting Garoppolo and San Fran's schedule is far easier down the stretch than ours. So it's possible they win a 2nd game.
