    I said before that I would start interviewing guys soon.

    Considering Caldwell didn't even seem eager to take the OC job, I don't think stepping on his toes would be an issue. I do think he needs to stay on the staff...at least as an QB coach.

    I'd look at guys like Wisenhunt, Turner, and Reid now. I know some think it would be a distraction, but I don't...and you can bring them in as a "consultant" much like the Pats did with Josh McDaniels during their playoff run last year.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Whisenhunt or Shurmur might be good candidates. Want no part of Sparano. Wonder about Childress, he's another guy with Harbaugh ties...
    I don't know that the Ravens are interested in Norv but I don't think he'd jump to the Jets without atleast listening to what the Ravens have to say if they were interested. The Jet's don't have a QB, they don't have a RB, and they don't have much talent at WR. The Ravens have one of the best RB in the game, we have a solid QB, and are fairly deep at WR, if only with potential. We need pieces on the OL and that is it. Not to mention in NY he'd be with a coach on the hot seat in Rex, most likely when Rex goes his whole staff goes. The Ravens offer a lot more job security, no matter what folks say Harbaugh isn't going anywhere. Simply put the Ravens are the better job of the two. No OC is going to choose the Jets job over the Ravens.

    The one thing that the Jets do have in their favor is that like you said, they can make the hire now. We can't without creating a distraction.

    Re: Black Monday

    Let's see:

    Lovie Smith
    Ken Whisenhunt
    Chan Gailey
    Norv Turner
    Romeo Crennel
    Andy Reid
    Pat Shurmur

    Am I missing anybody?

    By the way, there will be plenty of OC and DC coordinators to choose from, if they are smart and wait it out.

    Just seems that usually a few get another shot.
    The ones that surprise me are Lovie, Wiz, and the fact that Pioli is still GM in KC. Also I'm glad I'm not a Titan fan

    Pioli surprises me but nothing else does. Owners for the most part want success all the time. The real surprise is that Hunt is actually being patient with his GM.

    Bruce Arians is getting a lot of interest from teams. He should just fly on out to SD and forget about the upcoming game

    Arians is a shoe-in for one of the many open Head Coaching positions now open after what he did filling in for Pagano. He might have his choice of jobs.

    Mr. Rivera is against the ropes, but hanging in there for the moment. We'll see if he lasts the week.

    I think winning 5 of their last 6 may have saved Rivera.

    Eagles will interview Falcons DC Mike Nolan for the team's head-coaching vacancy on Friday.

    He could be a nice DC prospect. He played a more aggressive style of defense in San Diego that more closely resembles what Ravens defense stands for. If I'm not mistaken, he can run a 4-3 and a 3-4 pretty well. I'm not sure about that information though. My memory is slipping at the moment.
