Is that it? Nothing it what Russ has said indicates that but his reference to getting sacked is pretty obvious. Other than just pure speculation on your part what evidence do you have to suggest that?
No evidence whatsover, as you said, just pure speculation on my part. But I find the timing of all this to be rather "curious".
By all indications, Russ got exactly who he wanted as the new OC. After the announcement was made, every quote I read that was associated with Russ was positive. Now all of a sudden we're hearing a completely different tone. So what changed in the span of about 2 weeks?
It just feels to me like something recent triggered this new outspoken Russ. (Which I support by the way). Timing wise, with the hire of the new OC, and knowing Pete's history of micromanaging and putting his stamp on the offense, and knowing Pete and Russ have completely different offensive philosophies, this theory makes complete sense to me.
I could very well be completely off base on this theory, and for all our sakes, I really hope I am. But I think it's a real possibility this is playing into Wilson being unhappy with the way things are currently being run.
Again, this is just conjecture on my part, and I have nothing to back it up with other than the timing factor. Just my 2 cents.
