Don't know if Norv is safe, but it appears that Wade sure is.

    Jerry Jones released a statement today that he is committed to failure and will talk a contract extension with Wade Phillips later this week, not allowing the loss to the Vikings today to influence his status.

    Somehow, I hope AJ at least gives his decision a little bit more consideration. :icon_huh:

    I'd even trade an a$$ for an a$$ right now....Kaeding for Gus the donkey. Where's Don Knotts when you need him.

    Wade Philips would get in Ron Rivera's way. If anything, I would want Norv to get canned and Ron to take over defense and HC.

    I don't think Norv will get fired, but I do wonder if they will still give him an extension or let him play out the last year of his contract (maybe give him a 1 yr deal so he's not a lame duck).

    Interesting idea...though with the lockout looming it creates a heck of a lot of uncertainty.

    Dude... was just thinking the exact same thing. I know back in December it was reported that Norv was "guaranteed an extension" but I seriously think he needs to go. All season I was against the knee-jerk reaction of just saying "fire norv", and I thought he did a great job of turning them around... but looking back, how much of that was Norv and how much was Ron Rivera turning the Defense around, and AJ Smith hiring the perfect guys to fill positions depleted by injury, and how many times did Philip Rivers bail Norv out by making those ridiculous throws?

    I don't know if Ron Rivera is the answer, but I'd like to at least give him a chance. He might not call the best passing plays but get us a good OC, and I get the feeling Rivera could keep our guys prepared enough to win ONE playoff game...

    Trade Nate for one of Dallas's RB's.

    The problem I have with having Rivera take over is I don't want the offense to fall apart. We don't really have an OC, unless you guys think Chud can handle it.

    OC is such a hit and miss position too. My best guess is that whoever becomes the HC will install a new OC that they know from their past.
