I know this will not be a popular sentiment, but MLF needs to learn to say to him "Mike, I don't a damn what you thought you were going to do...it ain't working....stop the frigging run by blitzing and let our db's go man, if we lose, I will take the blame."
If he is kept, LaFleur owns the decision, i.e. he can't use the "he was hear and I was pressured to take him argument." But going forward, he owns it either way.
