The Trade Deadline
For some reason, Davis waited until after the trade deadline to fire McDaniels and Ziegler. We’re not sure why he did this because this was a long-overdue decision. If they installed a new coach and GM earlier, they could potentially have done some roster reconstruction (via CBS Sports).
Instead, Davis pulled the trigger nine hours after the deadline. Some analysts speculated that this became a point of contention between the trio. It’s easy to see why Davis would be reluctant to allow them to make more mistakes. But fans will wish that he did it during the offseason.
