    Really? Predicting the future these days? Please IM me this week's powerball numbers. Thanks in advance...

    I am not saying it is likely....and Harbaugh's fate will be determined after these next few games (unless Bisciotti goes into another post game rage...which is not likely, either...but now more possible, frankly)...but every few years a coach gets fired that seemingly was safe. Shanahan in Denver, Schottenheimer in SD, Dungy in TB are just a few examples.

    While I still think it likely that Harbaugh stays, his firing has moved in my book from competely impossible to somewhat plausible given Bisciotti stepping in to fire Cameron, the attitude/preparation of the team yesterday...and the results of the rest of this season.

    Harbaugh should be safe (for now) because he has injuries as an excuse.

    Not just on defense but now on offense too--Yanda, Torrey, and Pierce were or went out of the game on Sunday.

    Dierdorf brought up the stat that our top 5 tacklers were out of the game.
    Seriously? FUCK THIS SEASON!

    He's not going to fire Harbaugh after 5 straight winning seasons. He's going to give him a chance to fix things.

    Jerry Jones is going to offer a boatload of cash for Payton. No other team will come close to getting him.

    That's an interesting wrinkle ... and realistic.

    Bisciotti is worth 1.5 billion. He has the checkbook to make a big offer too.

    Worth =/= Cash on Hand, liquid assets or money to spend on his football team.

    Bisciotti cannot come close to the bidding war JJ can put on.

    Re: Sean Payton

    If you want to talk coaches other than Harbaugh, I think someone like Gruden or that tier of coach is more realistic than Payton. I just can't see the Ravens paying a coach 10-12 million a year, which supposedly is what Payton is in line for from the Saints or Cowboys.

    And no one in the NFL has anywhere close to the money that Paul Allen the owner of the Seahawks has. That doesn't mean he's willing to just throw it around and spend more on coaches and players than he feels they are worth. Bisciotti has a different mentality than owners like Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder. He doesn't feel the need to show off with that huge checkbook

    Bisciotti also fired Billick after giving him an extension. He's not afraid to spend money if he feels it's the right decision.

    Is it possible that is part of the reason why Bisciotti then went the cheap route for Billick's replacement? They wanted Garrett, hired Harbaugh and interviewed Caldwell and Brian Schottenheimer. Not 1 big name coach was on their list. There wasn't even 1 former head coach on their and all were cheap options. Maybe Billick's contract took a good chunk out of the coaching budget?

    Given how Garret handled the tragedy involving 2 of their players and how the Cowboys seem to have rallied around that and have won 2 in a row to get back into the playoff mix, maybe Jerry won't make a play for Payton. Getting rid of Garret might not be such a popular move in Dallas right now.

    Nobody really knows except Bisciotti. Personally, I've met Bisciotti before, and I can tell you he doesn't settle for mediocrity. I was good friends with a guy that went to school with his son, so I had a chance to meet Bisciotti and a few players.

    Or perhaps Bisciotti did not want another ego-driven Head Coach who thought he was above everybody else. Hard to pinpoint the "why" but I do not see the organization as one that looks to those who self-serve.
