When you are the quarterback for your team and you share team issues with the coach, you expect the coach to handle those issues. Sometimes this involves telling the GM of the team or working with other players. When you coach doesn’t do that and you get wrapped up in it and the GM questions you, what do you do? You say I told the coach. You then try to ride out the repercussions and hope for a bye week where the GM can coach the coach. You can request a trade or invoke free agent status but that is not always the answer.
