Seems dumb to me. Yeah, Bruce is past it and was a bad hire, but one thing the guy is good at is pragmatically grinding out points. Seems to me, with no wins 7 games into the season you'd want to focus on surviving this season so you don't have to waste time doing the Championship 2-step before you can start spending that oil money. And Bruce is exactly the kind of guy you hire to survive. The problem is keeping him around too long expecting him to do anything else. It would cheaper just to target a few Steve Bruce type players in the January window and letting him grind out enough draws to get you out of the drop zone.First shoe ready to drop. Odd they're considering dropping Bruce without a replacement lined up.
