Without Reid, there is no 4-0.
Quite the understatement.
Really though, I was skeptical of the Reid hire. I didn't want a retread (but to be fair, I did say we got the best one). Hopefully we can continue and I have to pound crow. There are still some questions, but Reid has done a marvelous job when most thought he was washed up.
It is astounding to me the level of ineptitude that infested this franchise in the Pioli era. Sweeping, overriding, smothering ineptitude that infested every single aspect of the franchise. I thought it couldn't get worse than Herm. Boy was I wrong. Every time I think about any aspect of the franchise, especially with coaching/gameplanning, it boggles my mind how much of a ****ing joke we were. And it went on for 4 years. 7 if you add in the Herm years.
It is truely sickening.
