Should Coach McDaniels be fired (week 13 results)

Do you think Coach McDaniels should be fired right now? 23% Yes 75 votes 67% No 218 votes 9% Not sure 30 votes

 

I opened the above poll on Friday, Dec. 4 at approximately noon and closed it just after kickoff on Sunday, Dec. 6. The reason I used this window was to try to avoid those still in reactionary mode from the previous weeks game and those reacting overly-emotionally to the days game.

 

One of the things I draw from the poll is that MHR is, indeed, a unique place, compared to the MSM outlets I've seen and heard that appear to be jumping all over the fire Coach McDaniels bandwagon. As of last week, at least, the fans here overwhelmingly want McDaniels to continue (at least for the time being). 

 

I also want to make note of the way I wrote the question (which I did mention in the poll notes, but some seemed to brush by): I wasn't asking if McDaniels should be fired at season's end or, if he were fired, who should replace him. I wanted to take an immediate pulse and that was all. I'm not interested in anyone's prognosticating abilities or debates of what "might" happen -- frankly that's what the bulk of MSM journalism seems to have become and I don't care for it. As I earned my B.A. in what now seems to be an "old school" Journalism philosophy (esp. as I am currently working on a Master's in the subject, 20 years later), what I perceive to be the current wave of speculation over reporting feels disingenuous at best -- particularly when not clearly separated from what is said to be "news".

 

Before I get too sidetracked, I'll finish with this (for now): the poll confirms what I believed about MHR and I'm very, very glad it exists as the outlier it is; especially for all the reasons listed in Harv's fantastic fanpost (click here if you haven't read it). I'll be running another poll this Friday-Sunday -- this time with the comments shut off (if I can find the admin tab).

 

Go Broncos!
