Sometimes an ongoing problem vicariously becomes a perpetual worst moment for a football team, and Frazier's unwillingness to step in and modify what ISN'T working is a good example of that.
Part of the job of a head coach is to manage and maintain a coaching staff, and a lot of that comes with allowing said staff to "do their thing" if that's the setup the team in question has.
But when things aren't going right, the job has to change in order to reflect what isn't working.
Frazier is a defensive guy and has enough coaching skills as a DC to say to himself, "I need to step in here, if we are going to win."
I understand you have to let your coaches be coaches, but where is the line drawn here?
As a head coach, you have to step up and be that guy and show your team you mean business when it comes to winning, even if it means stepping all over someone's Wheaties.
If not, the respect just isn't going to come from the players, and those players are not going to give 110 percent for a coach who is seemingly giving just barley 100 percent.
Solution: Be like a construction worker: Cast all care away from what other people think, and earn their respect. This is done by making the hard choices that ONLY winning coaches make, no matter how "controversial" they may seem at the time.
The NFL is not a place for passive coaches; never has been, never will!
