    Wow, that would be a terrible hire for the Jags. I approve!

    Five offensive coordinators now connected to interviews with the #Jaguars: McCoy, Chudzinski, Schottenheimer, O'Brien and Mularkey.


    Patriots: OC Bill O'Brien is in for a rude awakening as a HC life without Brady his Offense will suffer. Blaine Gabbert isn't a Tom Brady lol

    None of the Jags candidates are very good, great for all of us though.

    Fisher is interviewing with Miami today. I'm interested to see if Perry Fewell gets a look I felt that would have been a good hire for a Tenn last year.

    Mike Sherman could end up as head coach of the Bucs. I hope he gets it, that would be a hell of an upgrade from being HC at A&M.

    Strange there have been no Cowher murmurings...

    I saw where Gruden came out and said, "I'm staying in the broadcast booth next year."

    Turner being brought back shows me that Fisher is looking to get paid and get near autonomy. Fisher made sense in SD.

    Kroenke of the Rams won't pay Fisher what he wants. Too cheap.

    With Polian out in Indy (thanks Irsay) they may be making a big splash. Fisher or Cowher fit that bill but they haven't even fired their coach yet. I hope that whole shithouse goes up in flames to be honest. Trade or cut Manning. Please. Would love for the Texans to compete in a division with rookie and 2nd yr QBs that already look pretty pedestrian. Not sold on Luck either...especially on that team which should lose Wayne, Mathis, Bracket, and maybe Saturday. Colts will suck again next year without Manning.

    Thanks again, Irsay.

    Don't understand the reasoning behind keeping Turner. The Chargers have underachieved big time since he got there. They got to the AFC championship game his first season but haven't been close since. I thought Fisher would have been a good choice in SD as well.

    According to Kuharsky, Fisher doesn't want full autonomy.
    Also, I know he's not a coach, but Jerry Angelo was fired as GM of the Bears.

    Well autonomy to hire a GM he is friends with ala Kubiak hiring Rick. Obviously Fisher can't be coach and GM but I am sure he wants to bring people in, including a fisher-guy GM.

    Fisher is going to ask for a lot and he should get it if names like Cowher and to a lesser extent Gruden stay in broadcasting

    I guess when I read "full autonomy" I was thinking Mike Holmgren full autonomy and not Gary Kubiak full autonomy.

    Don't know if this is in his mind at all but one thing to consider is the Hall of Fame. Cowher is eligible next year if he does not return to coaching. If he does he is delaying it for however long he coaches plus another five years.

    I don't think it was me, I always thought they were pretenders, even during last season. I'd like to see Sherman get the job, or at least a head coach position somewhere, he deserves another shot. I'm pretty sure they went 1-6 against winning teams last year and the other 9 wins were over crappy West teams + the Panthers. That has pretender written all over it.

    Near autonomy was what I wrote but that is an oxymoron tbh. You are either autonomous or not autonomous. Let's just say he wants some control to hire who he wants, and a nice contract that gives him some nice job security.

    Turner stays? How... does this man not only keep getting chances as a HC, but also has managed to turn what was once the most talented roster in the NFL to a a disappointment?
