    just heard it on ESPN.. They lost cameron couple weeks ago and then Wade philips.. One of them was supposed to take over, now one is the coach at miami and the other at Dallas... Weird how this happened.

    I have to say this would be next to crazy if they did this. Its no wonder Daddy Manning wouldn't let his child go out there.

    The Rumor is fact.......Chirs Mortenson is reporting. Wow.......there must have been some serious friction between AJ Smith and Schottenheimer over the last week. Where in the world will the Chargers get a head coach now? Ron Rivera? The coaching wire looks pretty bare right now........

    I'd like to think they'd leave the defense alone and go out and get a offensive minded coach though i'm not sure how you replace cam. If they knew they were going to fire him why did they not make sure they had cam locked up?

    Or maybe Aj Smith was waiting for all the other jobs to be filled. He did'nt want Marty to be a headcoach anywhere this coming season...:stirpot:

    Parsells ?
    Yea, Marty and the GM, who hate each others guts for openers, must have really duked it out in the last few days ?
    But its really a high compliment to the HC to have both his OC and DC
    hired by other programs in the same offseason, especially those rated as high as Miami and the Cowboys.
    I dunno, guess the GM and owner didn't see it that way ?

    wow....that's kinda' crazy to fire a HC after such a great season. yeah, they lost in the playoffs, but 31 teams will always be losers every year. This makes me lose a little respect for the organization, to be honest.

    This is the stupidest crap I've ever heard. How the hell does a coach get fired after going 14-2, no wonder this team used to be the laughing stock of the NFL. Decisions like this will send them straight back to mediocrity, I'm sure LT is pissed.

    No way to explain letting both coordinators go and then fire the HC right after. Is Charley in there somewhere pulling strings?

    Wasn't he still under contract for 2007 though, and just declined the 2008 extension?

    This is what happens when egos are bigger than the team itself...
