Di Francesco, his players and the club hierarchy came under fire after a stunning collapse away to Cagliari last weekend.Leading 2-0 with six minutes of normal time remaining, Roma's mental fragility and defensive deficiencies were brutally exposed as Cagliari came back to draw 2-2, despite the Sardinians having two men sent off between their two goals.Results improved, with the exception of a 2-0 home loss to SPAL in October, but the club's second slump of the season has most media outlets reporting that Di Francesco will be sacked if he fails to beat Genoa Sunday.While Di Francesco is unlikely to last much longer if he cannot arrest his team's slide, he's not the only person to be singled out for criticism.
