Mike Zimmer said yesterday that he made a change at OC because he didn't want to waste the season. I asked him how his decision to fire John DeFilippo and promote QB coach Kevin Stefanski to interim OC prevents that from happening: "I don't know that it does. I just felt like this is what we need to do at this particular time. I didn't feel like we could continue to do what we've been doing the last few weeks and accomplish much that we're trying to do. It may work, it may not work. You get feelings and you trust your gut and it's no different than it's fourth-and-8 and you've got to call blitz, you meet it head on and you go. That's just the way that we're going to do it."
