I just see Tommy Smith giving Mike the benefit of the doubt, it doesn't sound as clear cut from him that he's leaning toward firing Munchak. In fact to me it sounds a lot like he sees this as a rebuilding period and that this team isn't as good as some of us seem to think they are. And in that thinking that Munchak is only doing as well as this team is not the other way around. I think that Mike's loyalty to the franchise and how hard he fights in terms of making his case to keep his job will play the biggest part in whether he comes back or not. I think he did a convincing enough job to get it in the first place and will do the same to keep it.
