Who needs to man up this week? The Miami Heat.
The Heat have gotten off to a slow start this year and have lost four of their last six games. This is a team that had huge expectations coming into the season after adding two superstars, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, to compliment Dwayne Wade.
So who is to blame for this unexplainable start? Sure you can blame their head coach, Erik Spoelstra, but if you have three superstars playing on the same team, it shouldn't matter who the coach is.
Who needs to man up this week? Donovan McNabb.
On Monday, McNabb and the Washington Redskins reached an agreement on a $78 million, five-year contract extension. How did McNabb reward his team? By getting completely destroyed on national television by his former team and divisional rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles.
McNabb had one of his worst games of the season, completing only 54 percent of his passes, throwing three interceptions and having a quarterback rating of 69.4. McNabb never looked comfortable, making mistakes and poor throws throughout the game.
Who needs to man up this week? The Dallas Cowboys.
Wade Phillips, the former head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, was fired Monday after leading the team to a 1-7 start. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has taken over as the interim head coach for the rest of the season.
But will this really fix all of the problems with this team?
Only time will tell. My issue with this switch is that Garrett's coaching style is too similar to Phillips' and a coaching change should bring in a different personality to spark a change in mentality.
Who needs to man up this week? Randy Moss.
Moss, a seven-time pro-bowler, is on the verge of being moved to his third NFL team this season. Moss started the 2010 season as a member of the New England Patriots and was traded to the Minnesota Vikings four weeks into the season. The Patriots were inclined to trade him after he made negative comments towards the coaching staff. Earlier this week, he was released from the Minnesota Vikings. Again, his departure came after getting into an argument.
