I think Bowles problem is that he trusts his players too much. Particularly on defense. As a former player he expects them to pull themselves out of bad play and self-correct during the game. As a head coach you need to be able to separate yourself and protect players from themselves. They are always going to think they give the team the best chance to win because that's how players are. You need to be able to adapt and make changes on the fly and he just simply does not do that. He puts all the pressure on the players and that's not what great leaders do. Great leaders make the tough decisions to pull the starter out because hes made bad plays all game. Even if its just for a few plays to shake them up. You must adapt....Bowles does not. If things don't work..."we need to execute better." Yea sure, but if that doesn't work maybe you should go back to the drawing board and help the players execute better.
