The hint I get is that with us the problems are mostly mental. We have a tough, chippy loss and something doesn't happen with the team that pulls them all together to fight even harder and smarter the next game. Instead they mostly sleepwalk for a stretch of games.
Don't be surprised if the team turns a corner soon, if not by the BWC. They usually do surface back to the level of 'competitive' after one of these horrible stretches of games. Like their mentality resets naturally as a team.
So if our leaders think that this sort of annual cycle is ok, we will have Monson for the next 2.5 years. If they think this is rotten, I hope they find a way to move him out without much financial damage...and the only way is a reassignment. Not unheard of.
