Given that so many teams have fired their head coaches who do you think will end up where by the start of next season. Here in Upstate the hope is Jim Fassell can land a job however it appears Arizona is keeping him on a tight leash. I personally wouldn not mind Haslett either as he was a Bill during tough times yet stuck it out and was a leader on a decent Chuck Knox defense. I dont know what other teams are thinking but it would be interesting to see who gets who. Any thoughts?

Actually, KBUF737, today's Democrat and Chronicle printed a rumor, based on a direct conversation, that a guy who'd once coached in Buffalo is interested in coming back. Do the initials M.L. mean anything to you?

I saw that ole Marv was 'interested' in coaching again. No offense to Marv, but Buffalo needs to go in a direction that they can count on, on a long term basis.

How old is Marv Levy? Not that an older coach cannot coach, but I think he had been in ill health and it would seem to me that the Bills would want to go in a different direction?

How about the Bears? My guess is another assistant as they have the tendency to go for the second tier coaching prospects instead of a higher profile name so they can continue to have control.

Marv has been in contact with two teams (reportedly the Bears and the Redskins) about coaching. According to the article, he's in fine health, recovering from minor knee surgery.

If Marv came back. Talk about selling tickets. What a p.r move that would be. I love him to death but he's a bit old. If he can do it though more power to him. Even for a year or two. Just get us to the big dance and win. How exciting things would be around here.

Isn't Jim Fassel interested in Buffalo or was that another team I read?

Had no idea he was talking to the Bears. Didn't he also have prostate surgery a few years ago? Does anyone know his exact age?

That would be a switch for the Bears who have never been big on hiring a "known" commodity, such as a Bill Parcells to coach them.

KBUF737, we'd be more than happy to give you Haslett, free of charge. What the Saints need is some better talent evaluation on staff, and then some decent coordinators to put that talent to good use. So, along with Haslett, we'll also donate Mike McCarthy and Rick Venturi (off/def coords) to your cause. Enjoy them with our compliments.....and heartfelt thanks.

Hey Tom,

Remember, we also gave you Mike Ditka!!!!!! Seem like both the Saints and the Bears could use some rejuvenation in the coaching ranks!

Haslett is a good coach. Unfortunatley he cannot actually PLAY for his players as well. He might need a change of scenery. I wouldn't be opposed to him coaching in Buffalo.

Fassel is being coutred by pretty much every team with a coaching vacancy. I really don;t see him ending up in Buffalo though.

Marv is too damn old to coach. He should enjoy the retired life.

As for the Bears, it looks like they'll be going for another assistant coach this year. It's not so much an issue of control but one of money. They don't want to shell out the money for a big name coach.

Hey, Dan Reeves is available! Spurrier will probably take a year off. I would not count him out on a return to the NFL. It wasn't his fault for the failings in Washington. It includes the players and ultimately goes back to the owner. A hands on owner like Synder usually fails; Jerry Jones has had mixed success as a hands on owner. Arthur Blank will probably be less hands on now that the Falcons have a GM. As for Atlanta's coaching vacancy, I wouldn't mind if they kept Wade Phillips as coach, but more than likely he won't get the job. I would like to see Ditka back as a coach, just to see how many near heart attacks he'd have!

Wade Phillips kept as coach? Are you serious? Did you not see the debacle he had in his years coaching the Bills?!?!?!

On the sports radio station here in NY (Long Island) they are reporting that the New York Giants will hold a press conference tomorrow to announce Tom Coughlin as the new head coach of the Giants.

Wade Phillips would be wonderful in Atlanta. John Butler, rest in peace, really had trouble with the salary cap. He had to deal with the departures of Bruce Smith, Andre Reed and Thurman Thomas all at once too. He had a superb defensive squad. I really don't think they should have let him go the way he did, but these things happen. Phillips turned a 6-10 team into a 10-6 team and the next season they went 11-5 and then 8-8. The Flutie vs. Johnson debate was the ultimate downfall for Phillips. I think he would do a wonderful job as HC in Atlanta. He has the tools. A healthy Vick and a good draft pick may be just the right formula to get the Falcons on track.

KBUF737 - Were you watching the same Wade Phillips coached team I was? He couldn't make in Denver. Couldn't make in Buffalo, and he won't make it in Atlanta. There is a reason why he isn't being seriously considered for their job, or any other job for that matter.

And Bears Fan, Dick Jauron is a good coach. His players, the team never quit on him and played hard all year long. When your big free agent signing is Kordell Stewart.....the problems the team has are not on the coach.

Lots of rumors this morning about Joe Gibbs possibly returning to the Washington Redskins---as head coach. We'll see what happens. His two sons would be in charge of his NASCAR teams.

Giants held the press confrence today and Tom Coughlin is now the new head coach of the Giants. I think this is a good move for the Giants.

My guess is that a house cleaning would be in order. It will also be interesting how much control Snyder gives to Gibbs, he, like Jerry Jones, likes to have his hands into things, as evidence of the laughingstock that the skins have become.

Hopefully, Gibbs can restore some order to the chaos!

Gibbs will have a heck of a defensive coordinator with Greg Williams at the helm. NFC East will definately be the division to watch. Best of luck to those teams.

25 KROC : Gregg Williams is a great Defensive Coordinator. I mean he shut down Buffalo's offense for the last 14 regular season games!
