    I wouldn't touch that dude with a ten foot pole. Cards year in and year out can't run the ball and this year they got multiple QB's killed.

    Yeah, I don't see firing the guy whose offense in 7th in the league to hire the guy whose offense is last in the league.

    I have never seen it this active. Some were long overdue like in SD. But how the Titans retain Munchak but fire Reinfeldt...but retain Webster, should warm your TItan hating hearts. Buds incompetence at its finest.

    They were saying eight -- I was thinking more like twelve.

    It's not just coaches. Rare to see this much on the GM side as well.

    Yeah, but he didn't have even a backup qb thereWhen he did he got his team to the SB....by his own doing sure, but he'd at least have a competent qb here.

    Actually, the quote by Adams is what really warmed my heart.

    That guy just oozes class. Or something. Probably something, to be honest.

    Evil is what oozes out of Bud Adams.

    I would include farts, too, but everyone knows that zombies don't pass gas.

    That didn't last very long. Any chance of them releasing Briesel too?

    The Browns letting go of their GM and head coach was a bit puzzling to me. Yes there record was less than stellar but, when a majority of your team is full of rookies with a rookie quarterback, no expects you to have a winning record (or at least I don't).

    The Chargers probably wish they kept Marty, at least he got you to the playoffs instead of a top 20 draft pick.

    Yep. New good owner. I expect things to change for the positive for Cleveland fans after so many years of dreck.

    Yep.

    Nothing classier than firing a guy in the media before you give him the bad news yourself.

    :bravo:

    Well now, who can we replace Rick Smith with?????? As much as I want to see him GONE, noone on the above list! To bad, so sad! Now we can just wait and see what more he can do to screw up a good team.

    Anyone other than ME miss Winston, Briesel, and Demeco??? Don't give me that salary cap crap either. WHO got us in that mess to start with!

    OK, let the neg reps start!! I've been holding back for months, and just HAD to let it all out today.

    The Lions have fired wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson, running backs coach Sam Gash and offensive line coach George Yarno.

    Looks like they were sacrificed to keep Schwartz as HC.

    Titans owner Bud Adams blames Reinfeldt for not delivering Manning.

    Perhaps Manning didn't want to play for the guy looking back at Bud in the mirror?
