    Along similar lines today, I suppose, is that I learned the interim coach for the Texans is Romeo Crennel, who made history by becoming the oldest NFL head coach at 73. Maybe you HAVE to get O'Brien out of the building anyway, so that he can't trade more draft picks away, but if the best in-house candidate to replace O'Brien is Crennel, I don't think that's going to have much effect on the W-L record.

    I can promise you, if the Jaguars get to 5-6 wins, Marrone won't get fired. He and the GM (Caldwell) have got the owner convinced that he needs to let them see their draft haul from trading Ramsey through at least through next year. They had 12 draft picks this year and so far have 11 next year, including two Nos. 1s. Surprisingly, most of their picks this year are panning out. The two Nos. 1s (Henderson and Chaisson) are flashing, although they're misusing Chaisson by putting his hand on the ground. The No. 2 (Shenault) would be the offensive rookie of the year for the team if it wasn't for James Robinson, the undrafted free-agent who made them feel comfortable enough ditching Fournette -- and he's playing better than Fournette did his last two years. The No. 3 (Hamilton, Ohio State nose guard) is playing a lot and will be starting eventually. Collin Johnson, the Texas WR, will play more when he stops dropping passes.

    They did not win a super bowl because of Manning, they won one because of their defense. Manning was awful that year.

    Peyton Manning was a leader in such coniderable, intangible ways that it raised the game of the men around him.

    Rivers is going to do the same thing in Indy. He’s an ass, and I don’t think he’s that good, but he’s a leader. The guys around him will elevate. I think you’ll see it with Carolina and Bridgewater, too.

    Anybody catch that little video this weekend of Rivers smack talking a Bears defender?

    Not a P Rivers fan, but it was pretty great.

    I don't think Marrone should be on that firing list.

    What a load of old cliched tripe.

    I don’t think you watched any football that year, they won in spite of him. He could barely throw the ball 20 yards, he was throwing ducks.

    If this magical leadership and intangibles were so important why was he so often criticized for only having one ring prior to being in Denver? And why didn’t Rivers do it with far more talented teams in San Diego?

    Could it because they are playing with dominant defenses?

    The ignore button is your friend. You think I'm stupid and don't know anything about really anything across many threads. Don't waste your time on me.

    Could be. I guess we'll see if the players still buy in.
