Black Monday - 2012

    Wow - a record 8 NFL head coaches were canned in the aftermath of this season. That's 25% of them. There will inevitably be the usual reshuffling and retread coaches and coordinators hired here and there, but it'll be interesting to see what truly new blood the NFL brings in.

    I, for one, would LOVE to see Coach Tressel give it a go in the league, though he's downplayed his interest in it multiple times, iirc...

    Thus far, the vacancies are:

    Browns
    Bears
    Eagles
    Chiefs
    Jaguars
    Chargers
    Cardinals
    Bills

    I'm surprised the Cowboys aren't on that list...

    Yep, it's the same ol' fuckers year in and year out, just with different teams. It seems that once you get to head coach in the NFL, you're set for life because you get to bounce around from team to team...

    The fact that Norv Turner and Chan Gailey, neither of whom has had any measurable success in the NFL or college, have remained employed this long is unbelievable.

    I read that as "Norv Turner to the Browns". :lol:

    Oh, wait - has he already coached there? I honestly can't remember all the mediocre teams he's helmed. :lol:

    As long as they hire someone that's Romophobic!

    Like Deion Sanders says all the time,

    "That's why you're picking <choose number here> in the draft...."

    :biggrin:

    Turner was only an assistant in college. Chan Gailey, on the other hand....

    P.S. - Mularkey still employed, Jags shouldn't be on the list of vacancies....yet.

    I saw that too yesterday. They were saying on the NFL Network that they told the assistant coaches to start looking for work, so that pretty much summed it all up.
