The quiet out of Detroit is unsettling, but I guess as long as the chumps still show up and buy Lions tickets there's no incentive to change.

Yeah it's AJ smith.

The chargers problem in the Turner era is that they simply lost far too many games they should have won. Just to name a few, this year they lost one with 4 turnovers in one quarter and another allowing a 4th and 29 conversion, last year they lost one literally due to fumbling on a kneel down.

Should be an interesting playoff, I expect some co-ordinators to get looked at for the big job and positional coaches for co-ordinators.

Waiting feverishly to see that Mularkey has been let go.

I know it probably won't happen until we name a GM, but the pessimist inside me says we will somehow keep a guy who coached us to 2-14.

1. Get rid of Gene CHECK
2. Get rid of Mularkey
3. Get rid of Gabbert

1 down, 2 more to go.

Are you telling me that there are 3 Jags fans on this forum? We're spreading like the plague apparently.

I'm not sure I completely agree with Mularkey getting canned, I won't be outraged if he does, but the guys played hard for him. 1 year seems pretty quick to dismiss a coach that had a lot of issues to deal with. Gabbert is pretty clearly not the answer though, regardless of the question being asked.

Depends on the next GM.

Either way, I'm glad Smith is finally gone.

Yes, Chargers just announced both are gone. The biggest ego in football (AJ Smith) is free.

So, it is a formal "firing" of Andy Reid. Jeff Lurie danced around the word, but a writer said the word, and he said it to. I thought it would be a "mutual parting of ways" but it sounds like he wanted to stay and supposedly many of the players who quit on him yesterday are shocked.

Terrible decision to let Wisenhunt go. Not his fault he had no depth on his team.

Is Lovie Smith a good coach? Which teams would consider him an upgrade over what they've got right now?

His main probem was at QB and he was never able to solve that after Warner. I think he'll get another chance down the line but his firing was justified.

I'm expecting Detroit to stay status quo. Especially seeing as this ownership is extremely loyal.

But heads will roll if they have another offseason and season like this next year.

Lovie is a good coach. This team just needs a new direction and cutting him loose is the first step. Urlacher and Hester soon to follow.

Wisenhunt will get another head coaching job if he wants it. Too many jobs available with too many guys who were head coaches in a Super Bowl.

Glad Smith is gone, he is a horrible talent evaluater and needed to go.
Although I think Mularkey will ulimately be gone when a new GM comes in it is unfair to blame a 2-12 on him. He had zero talent to work with thanks to Smith's complete draft failures. Nobody can win with no talent.
Take a look at where the previous batch of coaches are that also could do nothing with Smith's picks. Jack Del Rio, Mike Smith and Dirk Koetter may all be shaking hands during warm ups at the Super Bowl.
I was never a fan of drafting Gabbert but he got put in a tough situation with Garrard bailing 2 days before the season started last year. (Yes I know he was cut, but he went to JDR and GS and told them he didn't want to play anymore). Gabbert was never brought in to start right away and wasn't given the coaching time as someone who was coming in to start. Then he got thrown to the wolves behind a horrible O line with a cast of receivers that were underwhelming at best.
I do think he needs to go because he is ruined in that organization. Maybe new scenery will restart the kids career.

The Atlanta Falcons' offensive success during a 13-3 season could come at a price.

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will interview with the Kansas City Chiefs for their head-coaching vacancy, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. The Falcons already have granted the Chiefs permission to talk to Koetter and the interview reportedly will take place Tuesday.

There also is a report that Koetter will interview for the vacancy with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cleveland Browns are also reportedly interested in Koetter.

Cutler has struggled vs Packers but a major issue has been Lovie's D has been dominated by Aaron Rodgers these last few years (5 TD game included)

Lovie vs Favre = Advantage Lovie
Lovie vs Rodgers = Advantage Aaron

Rodgers/Capers duo simply was worst thing to happen to Bears since Grossman

Kellen Davis better be first out the door with Lovie

The fact Davis was brought back (Bears matched Cowboys offer sheet) was because Lovie wanted him back and believed in him

My dream scenario = Gruden as HC and Marinelli stays on as DC
Likely scenario = Bears hire some cheap defensive guy and slide back into Wannstedt/Jauron era

It's been a given for a while that he would interview
