NFL Coaching changes

    I've got to think the state of the NFL right now, without a key frontrunner for the Super Bowl, is behind some of these mid-season firings. All but two or three teams are within two or three games of their division lead, you make the playoffs and who knows what happens? The Giants showed that last year.

    The injuries to Tom Brady, Manning and Romo are probably making some owners figure this is their shot. Do I think the 49ers, the Rams or the Raiders have a shot, no. But their odds aren't any worse under a new coach. Ten games left.

    All of a sudden, an all-Bible Belt SB between the Panthers and Titans is legitimately in play.

    Uhh...can't call the Panthers the favorites a mere nine days after the Buccaneers absolutely hammered them.

    It took nine years, but the world might finally get the Bucs-Titans Super Bowl it should have had before Paul Tagliabue fixed the NFC title game to make sure The Greatest Show On Turf made SB XXXIII.

    I'd think the fact that the NFL is so wide open is actually keeping more teams from firing their coaches.

    Unless you're a clueless boob like the Danny ( ::) ), most owners or general managers aren't going to fire their coaches if the playoffs are at least an outside possibility. Otherwise, we might have seen Rod Marinelli and Marvin Lewis get pink slips by now in addition to all the firings that have already taken place.

    XXXIV... and Emanuel use the ground to catch the ball. Incomplete.

    Ohhh yeah. XXXIV. I always think the Super Bowl following the 1996 season was XXX. My bad.

    and that Emanuel call was a barrel full of bullshit. Tagliabue made up a rule interpretation that was best for him at the time...because there was no way in hell he was going to allow Bucs-Titans to bore the country.

    Hell, the Rams just beat the Cowboys and Redskins in back-to-back weeks and play in a division where 6-10 just might be the best record. Why not the Rams?

    yeah, cause by that point at least the Bucs had a high school offense. And crazy-ass Gruden stalking the sidelines against his former employer. And who else was going to win the AFC in 2002? No Patriots, Peyton and the Colts hacked it up in the first round against the Jets, etc etc.
