    AJ's sad ploy has obviously failed........ Dean is finally wise to him. ;)

    Well, I heard that besides getting paid by ESPN, Gruden is STILL getting paid by the Bucs.

    Cowher is going to say the same thing. Why should he, he is getting good money and all he has to do is say a few words on Sundays during the season.

    I call BS on Gruden. If the right job comes available he will leave ESPN.

    I am going to go with someone who has never been a NFL HC before. Don't know who, but I don't think (nor want) it will be Gruden, Cowher, Fisher, Billick, or Reid.

    I just hope we go with somebody defensive minded, that side of the ball has been neglected for too long, should've promoted Ron Rivera when we had the chance.

    Yeah... but coaching one of the Lingerie Football League teams isn't going to pay him as well.

    Chudz seems a likely candidated if we do go that route. He's a brillant TE coach, and done a fantastic job calling the Carolina offense with a rookie QB and absolutely no recievers outside of the aged Steve Smith.

    I'd happily do that job for nothing .................... so long as I could be around for the showers after the game and hand out the towels.

    I still want a HC that isn't calling plays on either side of the field. I have no issue with Chud, but would prefer a HC that isn't calling plays

    Why would he? He's getting paid by ESPN and the Bucs. Face it, Gruden ain't coming back...NEXT season.

    Doesn't mean it can't be someone who isn't calling plays now, I just don't want them calling plays when they are the HC

    why, there is no pressure on him at all, he gets paid to travel, and he doesnt have to work 16 hours a day during the season.

    Fudge it's gonna be fisher. Dean's looking to get a "Big Name" coach and with Cowher looking iffy and Gruden out he'll probably get fisher. Hopefully he at least interviews some up and coming coordinators for the job. Act like they had a chance.
