    Re: "Black Monday" - Who gets fired ... (Merged)



    As mentioned earlier, I am surprised Jay Gruden and Zimmer's names aren't being brought up in some of these coaching searches. And I don't get why anyone would call Cowher after 6 years out of the business when he has clearly stated he has no interest. But that's just me.. I guess Dick Vermeil did it...

    Young hungry coordinator is the way to go. Look at the playoff teams

    Exactly. It just seems to me that once people get in their minds that somebody is good or bad, they have a hard time shaking it.

    Billick is 3 times the coach that Fisher ever will be but can't get a sniff as a HC in part because teams vilify him for not having much of an offense (rightfully so) when he coached the Ravens but give him no credit at all for having elite defenses for the better part of a decade and keeping that team extremely competitive during that time frame. He's also the polar opposite with the media versus Fisher because of what happened at the SB 35 presser. I do think that one of Brian's objectives for working for the NFLN was to repair his image with media whore's such as Mike Lombardi so that he could get a second chance. Billick much like his nemesis Bill Parcell's loves money but is not the whore that Bill is in terms of hopping from place to place acting like the messiah when all he really wants is the 8 figure contract.

    I think that it is time for A.J. Smith to go. They just need a change. It just feels that way. Perhaps, I do not have the best feel for it, not being a Chargers fan.

    Jerry Angelo fired in Chicago. Good. The way he handled the draft day trade fiasco was absolutely classless. They've drafted really poorly over the last few years, passing on Terrell Suggs is just one example, which has caused them to have to overpay for both Cutler and Peppers to stay relevant.

    Jerry Angelo, GM of the Bears fired

    He looked incompetent after the draft with how he messed around Steve Bisciotti and our front office
    That's not the reason he was fired but it did no favours to his reputation

    See ya Jerry


    Edit: chicagoravensfan just posted it right before

    Jerry Angelo, interesting. That's one I didn't see coming. He's escaped so many times before that I figured that on an 8-8 year he'd do it again. That guy is a good talent evaluator but a poor GM.

    Norv had several teams that should have made it to the Super Bowl with no questions asked. Completely loaded on both sides of the ball and then would find creative ways to choke in the playoffs.. If there is one coach still working on borrowed time, it's him.

    LaConfora is speculating that the Chicago GM job is one of the few that could entice away Eric DeCosta. Obviously it would be devastating to lose DeCosta at all but I'd really hate to see him take a job that is set up for failure. It is a premiere job in the sense that it's a big market, a historically relevant franchise and a great fanbase but the McCaskeys are MUCH worse owners than Bisciotti and the roster is very old and thin. When Urlacher, Briggs, Tillman and Peppers retire or decline over the next couple of years they will be in real trouble and I'd hate to see DeCosta go the same route as Savage and Kokinis.

    The Eagles felt the need to announce Reid would be back next year also.

    Mike Martz stepped down as offensive coordinator.

    Norv is staying put, per ESPN and a few tweets

    Tampa Bay or St. Louis, would be a great spot for Billick.
