Well, some may still feel there is a chance of that. These cuts don't necessarily mean a nail in the coffin. They may but we won't know until the dust settles.
Corday said in SOD that the next 5 months will be "very difficult," but the show will come out much stronger for it in the end.

Stronger how? Financially? Sure, it'll be stronger financially because the budget will be trimmed... but it sure as hell won't be stronger creatively. Just as Ellie's signature suggests, you don't save a bleeding patient by ripping out their heart. I understand that firing Deidre will save money, but they're going to lose so many viewers that it won't be worth it. That's the problem. They'll lose more viewers, causing budget will be cut again... and they'll be right back in the same boat they're in now. Or the show will be cancelled altogether -- that's more likely. Problem is, I would rather it be cancelled before they rip out the show's heart instead of after. As a fan of the show, it's less painful for me to do without the show altogether than to see it go out with a whimper, unrecognizable.

There have been many "final nails in the coffin" over the last 5+ years, but this really takes the cake. For many fans, this really IS the final nail.
