Default Coach blame game!

Why is it that every time a team is winning they say it is because of the player/s. But when the team starts losing it is always the coaches fault. And in turn they get fired, except maybe for mike brown. Is it fair that the coach gets fired every time a team with a bad roster sucks? Shouldnt the GM get fired as well? or atleast blame the players. Like trade them?

It's much easier to fire one guy than to trade/release 15 players. Plus Players constantly need their ego stroked and if you damage their confidence they're performance is likely to take a hit.

Its unfair, but many time a struggling team needs a shake up and its not easy to trade away big contracts. Its far easier to fire the coach. Its sad that they are the scapegoats, biut sometimes teams have no choice. The have to do something to get the players motivated again and sometimes a coaching change is needed. Usually though its the fault of the players and management.
