Has a decision not been made/announced yet on Wisenhunt or is he safe for now?  Or do you know?

I'm not sure if that means he's safe or not. Nothing has been released one way or the other.

Gotcha...I'd assume then it's probably similar to the Jags situation and what the Colts did last year...bring in the new GM and then let him make the decision about the existing head coach. 

 

**edit...of course, I know what happens when one assumes so...yeah lol.  A statement could be released in 5 seconds announcing that Wisenhunt also received his walking papers.

Bears asking to interview Broncos’ Mike McCoyhttp://bit.ly/U05x9O  #Broncos #NFL

Cardinals fired HC Ken Whisenhunt. Up to 7 HCs today.

 

 

As I've been reporting, Cardinals very likely to promote assistant GM Steve Keim to the GM position

Interesting that you mention Ken Wisenhunt's name.

 

If Arians leaves for a head coaching job and Ken Wisenhunt is fired, I'd love to have him for OC.

I agree.  I think as of now my 2 top preferences, should Arians leave for a HC job, would be Wisenhunt or Greg Knapp (assuming reports are true and he does get fired in Oakland).

Nobody wants Bill Polian???? If it ends up the case with so many GM vacancies, Chris Polian would have taken his Dad down with him for good, kudos!!! :)

Polian is in the position(age/$$$) to pick and choose what he wants to do. There are some places he wouldn't want to go to.

 

If something he likes comes his way then he might take it.

 

It's not like he's 55...

Andy Reid

Norv Turner

Jason Garret

Romeo Crennel

Chan Gailey

Rex Ryan

Ron Rivera

Lots of available seats coming up in the next year or so......

4 for 7 almost 2 months ago. Should have known Whisenhunt was getting the boot.....

Riveria may have save his job with a nice Dec.

Still cant believe Ryan got a vote of confidence.

Jason Garret has deserved a firing for 2 years now, but I refuse to take into account the "Jerry Jones yes man" factor....thats my own fault.....

The Shocking name on the list is Lovie Smith

 

 

ESPN mentioned Arians as a possible candidate in Philly

Arians should not take it if Vick is still QB. Vick is a coach killer, IMO.

 

Arians is better off taking a job like the Bears or Chargers with a decent QB that can somewhat read defenses.

Ken Wisenhunt would be one of the first people I call if BA gets a shot to be a HC somewhere

It would be about the same playbook, but with a higher concentration on the running game. He never wanted to throw it as much as he did with Warner in Arizona. With Larry FItzgerald & Boldin & Warner he was forced too.

Gailey's entire staff also fired in Buffalo http://es.pn/S23NMF

Seems extreme to me from an outsiders point of view of course, I would have drafted a QB, A WR,  A O Linemen or two and maybe a Tight End if I was Buffalo and see what happens, They are still in need a few of those pieces in my opinion but now seems like they need an entire makeover on offense from coaching staff on down

Their mistake was the huge deal to Fitzpatrick.  They have some decent pieces, but will see how the new cook likes them.

Hate to say it but he is used for the Rooney rule. Happened to Jim Caldwell and Leslie Frazier a few times as well. Here is his bio: http://prod.www.falcons.clubs.nfl.com/team/coaches/Keith-Armstrong/37c548f7-ea99-48a8-acdf-46bd037574ff

“As I’ve told everybody who has asked over the course of the season, that the answer is, ‘Could I do it?  Yeah.’  Would I?  That depends entirely on the family and other considerations,” Polian told USA Today.  “So right now, it doesn’t look like there is anything in the offing.  And I’m fine with that.  I’m very happy with what I’m doing now"

    • I don't think he can.   Player protest was a negotiated piece of the players union contract with the owners.   They'd have to open up a complete re-negotiation and the players are not likely to give up personal freedom,  at least not without considerable cost to the owners.       I don't see either side budging.....   This is a principle thing for both sides.....  
    • Because you don't assume that you're not going to have a running game at the start.     You have to at least make the defense stop you.     You can't make yourself a one dimensional team --- especially at the start --- you have to force the other team to make that happen.   It's not just a Pagano thing.....   it's the view of whoever is his OC....    Arians, Hamilton and now Chud.   And if it was such faulty thinking,  don't you think Grigson and Irsay would say something to him?    Force him to change?       They just rehired him and he's still doing,   so the front office supports Pagano in this way.   And, this past week,  Gore went off for 70 yards in the first half.    The 2nd half fall-off is a reflection of the injuries on the o-line.   I know this is not popular here.....    you're not alone....   but football-wise,  this is reasonable thinking.

    • Would something like this be possibly voted in next season, such as any player who either kneels or has their fist raised is fined? At first I dismissed this idea, but having considered it, I've seen the NFL implement ridiculous fines, such as you're only allowed certain brands of equipment, touchdown celebration scrutiny, the media attendance requirement (ie. Marshawn Lynch), and lack of player contact in practices (ie. Seahawks). The NFL can fine players both in and out of game, so why not also during the National Anthem?

      If there is indeed a correlation between protesting and lower NFL ratings, it could be in Goodell's interest to stamp this issue out before it spirals out of control. It's possible these protests are costing the NFL money, whether they want to admit it or not.   Oh, and have the fines go to police and military veterans.
    • Sorry to hear that JP. Hope you get another chance. I'll raise a glass in your honour. Go well sir....

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
