    Neither is leaving their current position.

    I would rather have Urben than Pete.

    The bolts stank it up. The coaching is a train wreck: the team looks disorganized, the schemes (like the one putting Merriman and Phillips on the d-line which invites teams to run) suck, and the execution is poor. We may eke into the playoffs due to talent, but this coaching staff is not going to get us far.

    I agree with Leisure, AJ's gotta pull the plug on this experiment. I don't know about Carroll since he was awful with the Jets, any Jets fan will tell you that, but we have to try something else. The chin's still out there and he wants to coach.

    Do you mean a blank card? I'm still shaking out the cobwebs. I got hammered last night, and it wasn't a happy drunk experience. I'm still out of it.

    Very different losses between last year and this.
    Last year this team was ready to WIN that game, Marty had this team going toe to toe with the Pat's...but thanks to EP and D Flo we lost, it was the player's fault...fast forward to last night. The Bolts couldn't run, couldn't pass, couldn't block, couldn't stop the pass, couldn't stop the run.
    That's on the coaching staff, these guys weren't ready to play.
    THis team is already looking allot like Norv's old teams...now, I'm not ready to dump Norv yet, but if things don't get better starting this week, then we are in real trouble.
    Doesn't Norv have a several year contract? It doesn't matter what happens, he's not going anywhere. If this team falls apart, we're stuck with Norv.

    Don't know who this former player is, but he's nailed it right on the head!
    When we lost with Marty, our team was still fighting, and we could point to minor things that cost us the game...last night was a complete meltdown.
    With Marty it was usually player screw-ups, or conservative playcalling, which he got over last year...with Norv, it's always been coaching screw-ups that just compound...just think back to the tRaiders.
    As I used to laugh at them and say "as long as Norv is your coach, you're going nowhere"...well is it possible I was right? I want to hope I was just punching at a tRaider fan, but deep down, I've never thought Norv was a good coach.
    When Marty was fired I thought A.J. was being a fool, and his ego was way to big...I still feel that way, but I hope I'm wrong.
    Regardless, we've got Norv for a few years, and I think the next couple games will tell us whether they will be good years, or miserable.

    You mean the same guy that was run out of the NFL during his last stint, because he stunk it up OR the hyped up guy that coaches for one of the elite COLLEGE football programs in the country?


    Enough about Pete. He would be stupid to leave such a great situation, knowing what he knows about coaching in the NFL.

    By the way, the sad reality we're facing with LT is that if Norv is fired (even if he deserves to be), LT is pretty much going to say FU to the bolts and be looking for a way out. You all read what he said after the German was fired, and I doubt the guy will want to stick around if this proves to be an ill-fated experiment by AJ. That's what I kept thinking all last night.
