Chiefs announce that G.M. Scott Pioli has been fired
Report: Jets GM candidates told they have to keep Rex
not a huge fan of this site at all, but this article makes sense. Lovie Smith, makes NO sense.
The Jets turned themselves into a hot mess in just under two years. This is great.
As to Lovie Smith... I wouldn't be opposed as long as he hires anyone other than Mike Martz to run the offense. But no sense in even worrying about it because the GM is going to do that. I certainly am not opposed to hiring a HC who is a defensive specialist. Make this a Steelers West type thing and see if that gets it done.
Andy Reid has just reached an agreement to become the Kansas City Chiefs next head coach according to sources.
How will the GM be doing that? Spanos stated in his presser that the next HC will chose his staff, but recommendations will be made for some on our current staff.
I meant the GM is hiring the HC. or did I miss something?
Oh, they way the sentence was structured it sounded like the GM will be hiring the OC..
Hope they're getting Reid circa 2011-2012
Which "idiot comment?" Some would argue that most of your comments are "idiot comments."
Seriously Matty, can't you even admit you're wrong (by oh, 30 years or so), with a little grace?
The Reid without a QB, yeah.
I think it's all the more likely they go with Geno Smith now.
I really don't care how old you are, I was just pointing out the irony of your age argument dependency. And in not sure why you think I should believe you anyway.
Let move on with life shall we?
I also like Ant's comment re. the Chiefs (hopefully) getting the lesser Reid,
though I doubt that the man has truly changed much since his glory days.
I didn't follow Reid that closely in Philly, so I'm undecided re. how solid an HC he really is.
Of course, I've said many times that I think that most fans overestimate the impact of a head coach,
and that Reid has mostly been successful when he's had a good roster, and not when he didn't...
like 98% of coaches, 98% of the time.
That he only won 8 games in '11 isn't such a big deal until it's tied to the embarrassing 4 (!!) in '12...
--despite a decent roster--argues against him having any sort of Midas touch.
On one hand, no, I don't really feel like the Chargers missed out by not signing Reid...
On the other hand, though, when contemplating any coach with 140 wins coming into the division,
it's not to be taken lightly (I'm having flashbacks of Rivers' disturbing comments about welcoming
Peyton into the AFC West, because it would be such fun competition)
Or Mike Tice
Andy Reid is going to have the Chiefs in contention every year. Especially after Peyton is gone from Denver in a couple more. He's a ten year guy. He'll win 10+ in at least 6 of those years.
The division just got a lot tougher.
Well I'll tell you this much, you can bank on the Chiefs not selecting a QB with the 1st overall pick now.
Do the Chiefs worry me? No. Unless they get a QB besides Cassel or a rookie I won't be scared by them. They have a lot of decisions to make this offseason as well. Brandon Albert, Dwayne Bowe, and Glenn Dorsey all free agents. It will be interesting, I think Reid is entering a team that should not be selecting 1st overall given their talent. He'll add talent to the team for sure, but it will be interesting what they do.
Tell that to the fans in Philly....... he left them quite a "Dream Team".
Yeah, he doesn't really worry me, especially when he has GM powers, which he will since the GM is being hired by him and will be his puppet
It may be a toss up between the idiot Pioli, or the idiot Reid will bring in.
You can say one thing about Andy Reid..... he took a team that was very talented "on paper" and got them to massively underperform.
He should fit in quite well in Kansas City.
I really don't get the Reid hate.
The guy is an outstanding head coach and personnel man. He's had his misses for sure. But that goes with the territory when you're risk taker like he is.
It might take him a year, but he will turn that thing around the way he did in Philly.
His winning %'s are up there with the legends of the sport. And if you're going to tear him apart for bringing the team down, you also have to credit him for building it into a quality team for the majority of his tenure.
If Ron Rivera gets fired in Carolina... Reid would be wise to bring him in as DC. That would be big trouble for the Chargers in the near future.
Eagles get permission to interview Bruce AriansPosted by Michael David Smith on January 4, 2013, 4:55 PM ESTBruce Arians did great work in 2012 as the Colts’ interim coach while head coach Chuck Pagano missed most of the season while undergoing chemotherapy. So it’s no surprise that Arians is now considered a strong candidate to become a head coach on a permanent basis.The Eagles announced on Friday that they have been granted permission to interview Arians. That interview is expected to take place next week, regardless of whether the Colts win or lose against the Ravens on Sunday. Assistant coaches whose teams win in the wild card round of the playoffs are permitted to have head-coaching interviews during the week before the divisional round of the playoffs.Another assistant coach whose team is playing on Sunday, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, is in the same boat: The Eagles have received permission to interview Bradley and plan to do so next week, regardless of whether the Seahawks win or lose against the Redskins.Several reports have said that the Eagles’ top candidate is Oregon coach Chip Kelly. The fact that the Eagles are planning multiple interviews for next week suggests that they aren’t expecting to hire Kelly quickly — or that they want Kelly to know that he can’t string them along indefinitely.
The way the bolt's are moving I'm wondering who is going to be left to choose from. Hell, they're still playing GM musical chairs. This ain't looking so good.
Eagles & Bears have receive permission to interview Bruce Arians. Chargers have not, but they plan to. Arians interested in SD, among others
I'm not as concerned with the coach as I am with the GM. This team needs an infusion of talent on both sides of the ball, but mostly on offense.
Hell, one guy no one is mentioning as a HC candidate for us is Rob Chudzinski. He definitely knows how to put an offense together. While Carolina may have taken a step back this year, it probably had more to do with Newton's sophomore slump than with Chud's play calling.
Or hell... if Rivera gets the axe... bring him over as HC... Chud as OC...
Interest between the Chargers and Colts OC Bruce Arians is believed to be "mutual" regarding San Diego's head coaching vacancy.
Arians is clearly interested in a head coaching job, as he's already scheduled an interview with the Bears and figures to line one up shortly after the Bolts hire a general manager. A Tom Telesco-Arians package deal could make sense in San Diego. Arians and Telesco were both in the Colts' organization in 2012.
I'm not buying into the whole GM/HC package deal crap. We've already done the master and enabling lapdog thing.
Also I'm not sure Telesco deserves much credit at all, the Colts really aren't well rounded, they're defense is relatively terrible (led by Greg Manusky), they're running game is mediocre at best, the only thing they have going for them was the most obvious 1st overall pick in 30 years.
Regardless of whether we hire Arians, who I like, I don't want to see Telesco here.
The fact that he sounds like a communication company is suspicious enough.
The Union-Tribune San Diego is hearing that the Chargers have interest in UCLA coach Jim Mora for their head-coaching vacancy.
Per the U-T San Diego's Kevin Acee, Mora would keep John Pagano as defensive coordinator and hire Noel Mazzone to run the Chargers' offense. Mazzone was Philip Rivers' offensive coordinator at NC State. Mora, 51, coached the Bruins in 2012 to a 9-5 record. Mora has all along wanted to return to the NFL and now appears to have emerged as a serious candidate for the Chargers. San Diego still needs to hire a general manager, though.
Please tell me this is a joke
