Well..it is black monday in the NFL and officially so far the following coaches are out.

Bears - Lovie Smith is fired
Browns - Pat Shurmur and the GM have been fired.
Eagles - Andy Reid has been fired
Chiefs - Romeo Crennell is out, GM Scott Pioli to stay
Jets - Rex Ryan will stay, GM Mike Tannenbaum has been canned
Bills - Chan Gailey has been fired
Titans - Mike Munchak will stay, COO Mike Reinfeldt is out

That being said....we are probably not done yet. Norv Turners fate has not been announced in San Diego. Carolina will make no decisions today and neither will Jacksonville it seems. Oakland is probably going to do something. And you always wonder about Dallas and Jason Garretts future.

Not surprised seeing as the Browns got new ownership this year and he wants to put his mark of the team and you have to start at the top.

Not a surprise at all seeing as it was cheaper to keep him this season and yeah it is quite surprising to fire a coach who went 10-6 this.

Not at all, considering how they got there and the fact that they've been to the playoffs three years out of the nine Lovie's been there. He's a great example of a good but not quite good enough coach. Supposedly this decision was pretty well made for the better part of a month.

They will, but I think there's a chance that it will just be elevating Jeremy Bates to the position. It may not be a bad option if they have an offensive head coach. The Bears have apparently already been trying to arrange an interview with Denver OC Mike McCoy.

That's the trick, although I don't think Jerry Jones has the skills to find that guy.

The worst news of the day is that Jon Gruden is supposedly turning down overtures from NFL teams to remain at ESPN. I was really, really hoping that somebody would hire him to get his stupid toddler haircut and dumb, annoying "analysis" off my TV. I guess it means another year of the mute button.

Garrett isn't going anywhere because he is Jerry's "yes man" and the Cowboys often don't have a coach who gets full control. Jerry is a terrific owner but a bad GM as he doesn't know football.

Good to great coaches like Cowher, Gruden etc. don't want the owner in the locker room and that isn't happening in Dallas.

Regarding Romo, he failed in the Clutch yet again which sucks for Dallas fans. However he is not the problem with Dallas and the only reason they were even playing to get in the playoffs this year is because he had a good year.

Who is Dallas going to get in place provided if you were to trade him you aren't getting nearly anything equal back??

In today's NFL teams hold on to their QB's and if you release him he will be gobbled up by a team that can use Romo in their system.

If you put him on a team with a reasonably good defense and with an offensive coordinator that can create a system around him he would be much better.

You know where he could go and improve the situation. The Bears because he is a lot more of a play-maker than Cutler is and has a defense that can stop someone.

Romo has talent but be honest you don't think he is good because he doesn't win like Brady and Manning, but he is the only reason Dallas contended this year.

It's about time!

Whaaat? C'mon. Tell us how you really feel.  

In all seriousness, yeah, it was a matter of time before that guy went bye-bye. Same can be said about Andy Reid. I feel bad for Reid considering he lost his son before the start of the season, but he's always been subpar when it came to coaching. He actually had a good over-all regular season record, but come playoff time he could not follow through and carry the team through to the championship. He got them there once where he stumbled against Billie and the Pats...

I'm a little surprised tho with Ken Whiz. I thought Arizona had a shot this year, but maybe I'm mistaken. I really don't follow much in the way of western conference teams, to be honest. Then again, if you go years and years and finish with underperforming results, the odds are you a) have a coach who cannot coach, b) have a lousy manager, or c) a combination of the two.

With my team, it's different. I'd like to see Lebeau go, but I can understand why Tomlin seems to want to keep him around. The issue there is that they have a senior citizen defense, which is a whole other ball of wax...

Hell no. Romo is not better than Cutler, and for all the mistakes Jerry Angelo made, getting Cutler was the solution to having decades of quarterbacks like Romo or worse. But, since you brought it up, I'll tell you exactly what Romo is: he's a taller Rex Grossman.

Team source: Chargers' next coaching hiring could be made with L.A. move in mind


So if they don't get a new stadium approved, they could be moving back to L.A. as soon as the 2014 season (playing a few seasons at the Rose Bowl while Farmers Field is built). They want a bigger name coach that fits in with L.A. sports.

Chargers--Rivers is kind of like Romo--gaudy numbers, and a decent qb, but nothing to show for it.
Jacksonville
The Vikings (Ponder translates to 'Saved by Peterson')
Chicago (Cutler's a headcase)
Miami (Tannehill) and Titans (Locker) are works in progress
Carolina (Newton's looking like a headcase)
Kansas City
Cleveland
Buffalo
Philadelphia
Baltimore

Teams that might have a Romo-like qb on their hands:
The Texans, if they don't get past the first round.
Detroit (if Stafford can't rebound)

Bears - Lovie Smith is fired


I'm thinking the Packers probably contributed to this. When he came to Chicago nine years ago, Smith made it clear that the NFC North title and road to the Super Bowl for the Bears ran through Green Bay and that beating the Packers was his top priority. Green Bay is currently on a 9-2 run in the series, winning the final six meetings between the two teams and the 2011 NFC Championship game at Soldier Field. Fittingly, it was the Packers who knocked the Bears out of the playoffs yesterday. Chicago hasn't seemed to have the ability to bounce back from injuries the way the Packers have in recent years. You have to give that blame/credit to their General Manager.

Jay Cutler reminds me of Jeff George, although he's not quite the cancerous presence. It seems everywhere George went he would flash early then the team degraded from the inside with division and finger pointing. Cutler has a good arm, but he seems weak in the leadership dept. And he takes reckless chances that tends to bury his team needlessly. Lovie's demise is in part to his inability to turn Snark into a leader and get him to work closely with his OC's.



Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

I don't think Lovie Smith was the biggest issue in Chicago, and I think he is a great defensive mind. The problem is that Chicago hasn't been able to get a solid guy for the Offensive side of the ball. Mike Tice was not the answer. The other problem with the offense has been some bad personnel moves. Cutler I think is a good QB and Brandon Marshall a great WR, but you don't have a great running game, and that Offensive Line needs to be revamped as that was the biggest cause of their problems this year. Getting a guy to complement Marshall would help too.

The Defense was rock solid this year, but Wisenhunt was awful at handling the QB situation after Warner retired. He didn't allow Leinart to develop then dumped him for other guys who were just as bad, and never really had an answer. If they had a good QB, with that defense and Larry Fitzgerald, this team could actually go places.

Teams that might have a Romo-like qb on their hands:
The Texans, if they don't get past the first round.
Detroit (if Stafford can't rebound)

I don't agree with this list entirely. For one thing the Jets should be on this list with Sanchez and they aren't. As for the other teams lets take a look. I agree with Oakland and Arizona. Rivers biggest problem was he had no supporting cast around him this year. Chad Henne showed some brilliance in Jacksonville, but there was no talent at all on that team. I dont agree with Ponder. Yes AP was the reason they went to the playoffs, but if you look at the rest of the team, Ponder has absolutely no weapons at WR with Harvin being hurt, and Kyle Rudolph is an average at best Tight End. Ponder doesn't make the mistakes with the football that Romo does. Cutler is a bit of a headcase, but the guy is a good player and if you get him the right offensive coach, he could be really good (Lovie's biggest problem was he couldnt find a good Offensive mind). I think Cam Newton will be a great player too...and they should be able to get him some more weapons in the offseason. KC has two QB's who should be career backups at best. Brandon Wheeden in Cleveland was only a rookie this year, so give him a bit of time. I agree with the last three. As for Matt Schaub...he needs to play better, but the defense down the stretch was the reason they lost the number 1 seed, not Schaub. As for Detroit...Matt Stafford didn't have a great year, and some of that is on him...but his big problem was there was some headcase Wide Receivers behind Calvin Johnson (Think Titus Young).


Here is what will happen with the QBs in the offseason. Alex Smith is going to be traded to somewhere where a good receiving core will help him succeed. Arizona would likely be a good place for him, especially if they can improve that Offensive Line. Only issue there is would SF trade in the division? Even though Chad Henne showed flashes of brilliance in Jacksonville, they are probably going to trade for Tebow, which would be great from a business standpoint as that would sell tickets there. Matt Flynn could be traded again, but would a team trade for him after he was brought in to start in Seattle, only to lose the job to Russell Wilson? The other thing is, who is going to be available in the draft? KC has the number one pick, and unfortunately for them, there is no Luck or RG3 in this draft. Matt Barclay may be the guy, but is he a number one pick guy?

As for the Coaching situation. You know that some teams would like a guy like Gruden or Cowher to go after, but will they coach again, or stay in TV? We could be looking at a lot of first time hires this year.
