Who took this video? I astounded and the level of incompetience this shows! Doesn't anyone ever look at this before it is posted?  D Led, don't you care about these things?

I think if they have a winning season and the team comports themselves well he'll be back. But he simply can't have a season like last year injuries or not.....

well unless this team wins super bowl in 2015  mike smith is a goner , nice guy  just not mean enough to put the fear of god  in these players and talent is not there like the braves living on a prayer .

@reallygroovy  i dont think he gets fired this season or any season in the near future. Smith is a damn good coach. I would like to see him be a bit more feisty in his play calling but fired...that might be a stretch.

They have never had a killer instinct and I don't see that changing. One would think he'd have learned his lesson after so many teams have come back from substantial deficits to beat them, including SF to go to the SB.

They get a 10 poin lead and go into what I call "the prevent offense".
