Coaching Changes Thread

Here we go:

 

I was listening to ESPN radio tonight and heard some interesting rumors. 

 

1.  Eagles will/have fired Reid.  He expects them to make a strong push for either Chip Kelly or Bill O'Brien.  If they can't land either of them he expects them to go after an OC and listed Kyle Shanahan and BA to be the favorites of those.

 

2.  Chargers will dump Norv and AJ Smith.  He thinks BA will be offered the job there but I had heard they were interested in Reid. 

 

3.  Browns are making a change.  He thinks they will go after O'Brien and if they can't get him he thinks they will want Josh McDaniels from New England and said he expects the Browns to try to bring in Ryan Mallett as well if they land one of those two.

 

4.  Jets will fire their OC but not Rex Ryan.

 

5.  Ken Whisenhunt could be in danger in Arizona because he expects the GM to go.

 

6.  Jags will fire their GM which could put their coach on the hot seat.

 

7.  KC he said he can't get a read on but he thinks if the GM goes Romeo goes as well.  He said it's expected if changes are made that Bill Polian will be the new GM there. 

 

8.  Lions he said the GM and Schwartz will probably keep their jobs due to the fact that the Lions owners wont want to pay that much money to people not coaching this coming year.

Good. I was looking for a thread.  Black Monday has come at last.

 

1. Chip Kelly would be very interesting.

 

2. It has been a long time coming for Norv.  Continues to underachieve with roster.

 

3. Will the Browns ever turn it around? It seems like they blow up the organization every year.

 

4. I really thought they would fire Rex.   Maybe they give him another year.

 

5. I understand if a new GM comes in, they want "their guy", but Whisenhunt has probably done the best he can with the pieces he's got.  Deserves another year unless the new GM already has someone in mind.

 

6. Same as above. GMs should be able to clean house.

 

7. Same as above. Better coordinator than head coach.

 

8. I've never really cared for Schwartz.  3 seasons below .500.  50/50 on firing him.

I'd fire him but I am not shocked the Lions wont.  It's clear the Lions biggest problem is that they are undisciplined and that's a direct result of coaching.  I think they should also look around to teams like the Chargers who for years had more talent than any other team in the league and couldn't get it done based on talent alone and see that as a warning. 

 

With that said the Lions owners are a reason to love Jim Irsay if you are a Colts fan.  Look at the reason they said they wont make the change they don't want to pay them not to coach.  That's just being cheap.  They care more about a profit off of the Lions than they do winning and losing.  That's why I like Irsay not all of his moves will turn to Gold but turning a profit and having a losing team will never be good enough for Irsay he will always keep trying to make his team better till they win.

Watching NFLN.... heads are rolling all over.

 

I don't feel Crennel got enough of a shot in KC and he was handed a BLEEEEEEEP team.

 

Pioli is responsible for a lot of the mess. He needs to be on the hot seat as well.

I figured Rex would keep his job. I actually like the guy. It'll be interesting to see how he works with a new GM.

 

I wonder if Rex Ryan can work well with Bill Polian, LOL :).

That made my day. I'd be able to see the sparks all the way here in New Mexico. :)

 

There will be enough smoldering that you could take off in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque with it (btw, I went to school there, I am a Lobo, though it was for my masters).

Cool :) and once a Lobo, always a Lobo. Unfortunately they haven't done all that well the past few years, football wise.

I agree with your comments about being cheap and appreciate that our owner cares more about winning. Anyone with that pathetic of a reason to hang on to coaches doesn't deserve to own a team IMO. I feel for the Lions fans. Look how long they hung on to Matt Millen when it was obvious to everyone that he was a lousy GM.

Keep in mind......a coaching not getting fired today does not mean he will not be fired. In the case of Rex Ryan, I am assuming ownership is going to leave the decision to the new General Manager. If the GM is getting fired, chances are that the coach may be next.

Excellent points regarding Detroit.

 

IMO....Jim Schwarz should have been at the top of the list today. He commands ZERO respect from a locker room stocked with ample talent to win AT LEAST 9-10 games.....but enough undisciplined and out of control enough to embarrass themselves, which they did this season.

In the NFL.com article, it says that the owner has explicitly stated that Rex Ryan will stay.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000119915/article/mike-tannenbaum-out-as-jets-gm-rex-ryan-still-coach

 

Johnson made it clear that the next Jets GM would not be able to hire a new head coach.

 

However, the same has not been said about Mike Mularkey so I could definitely still see him being fired when the Jags find their new GM.

I'm surprised Mularkey still has a job in Jacksonville.  I never thought he was a good choice for HC.  Lovie should have been fired years ago.  Crennel is not cut out to be a HC, but he is a very good DC, so I don't expect him to have much trouble finding another job

I just hope Crennel does not go back to the Pats. :)

 

But he wont have Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy and Rodney Harrison to work with in the secondary, plus wont have Bruschi, Vrable and McGinnest in the front 7 :).

I love this day! It's always so much fun! Not the part with the men losing their jobs and effecting their families, the part about new major people in the league

Even from a financial perspective. These guys for the most part are fired with money on the table, that they will still collect.  Getting fired would be tough for anyone, but in some cases they will be paid 6 to 7 figures to work elsewhere or to sit in front of a camera, or nothing at all.

    • Meh, these guys make millions. If they aren't smart enough to take out long term care insurance with some of that money then it's on them. 
    • So many assumptions here, I don't know where to begin:       How does Steve Young know what Andrew is thinking?        There's no effort on the part of the Colts FO, Owner and/or coaching staff to improve the team around him.        There's no talent on this team besides Andrew.          Andrew can void his contract and just decide to leave.        He would be on a losing team for his career, if he stayed.         While we can all agree that the team around him has to improve, not only for the sake of his health but for him to have a successful career, the means to that improvement can come from a new influx of players and/ or coaches or from existing players and coaches getting better each week.     If you think about individual players and ask yourself if you are glad they are Colts, you can make the case that there is more to this team than Andrew.     As far as Ballard, I'm glad the Colts landed him. If the goal is to build a team around him, he is an important piece.      I want to see how this coaching staff does when the injured players return.        At very least, what is happening now is good for the team as a whole. Young players are getting reps and depth is being built. The defense is playing together and as a result familiarity and communication should improve.      If this team keeps improving, the wins will come. Andrew could return to a team that may be the best he has played with so far. I know these are assumptions on my part but to assume things won't change (one way or another) is a bigger assumption IMO.  
    • I guess if he really wanted to, he could pull a Carson Palmer and retire, then sign with a different team. I wish we had more positive stories to talk about. But negativity is what always sells and gets the most response. 
    • The Rams and 49ers scored more points last night than on any other Thursday night game ever. Goff seems to be headed in the right direction and the coach Sean McVay may know something. Great ending as well.
