    Really, either way the Front Office has done enough to be fired.
    Alternate theory, Love is pretty good, but not the guy that won MVP the previous two seasons. I get he had a bad year, but don't forget who Rodgers is(was).

    Good luck with your hiring, such a great track record of treating coaches like shit.
    The Niners when they fired coaches back to back after 1 year had at least a controversy at GM and cleaned house before they brought in their current tandem of Shanahan and Lynch. The Texans expect to do this with Caserio staying in place.

    To be honest, Caserio has had a difficult tenure, with the QB who shall not be named being a rapist asshole and the incredible mess from the Bill O'Brien era. His work on getting that trade done and what he got in return was very shrewd and he;s forged a situation with draft capital and cap space now.

    I won;t blame him for the coaching carrouseel cause that seems to have been owner inspired, but this is his first year with cap space and draft capital, so if he's going to get anything done it has to be now. I suspect however that the Texans will want to bring in a HC with some influence on the personnel decisions, so Caserio might end up not being able to do anything afterall and just be the scapegoat for cleaning up Bill O'Brien's mess and end up fired next year when the coach they bring in wants him gone.

    There's even the chance that Caserio still gets fired I think, depending on who the coach is they bring in.


    In the end, there's only 32 NFL HC positions and SOMEONE is going to bite to take this rare opening, but I'm going to assume that person is going to try and get ironclad guarantees about their employment.

    Kingsbury canned. Giving him an extension was questionable, but the Cardinals aren't exactly known for being a well ran team.

    Also Keim confirmed he is going to be stepping away permanently because of his health issues that kept him away from the team part of this year. So whether it was nudging from ownership or not, it's a clean slate in Arizona.

    Now question is what do the new team think of the QB there.

    Considering Murray just signed an extension there's no point bringing in new people unless they're in on him.

    As a Bills fan this season has felt very off to me before it started. All the pre season and early season hype for the Bills is something I am neither accustomed to or comfortable with.

    They looked like a juggernaut early in the season in spite of injuries that began piling up. Then they hit their standard issue November slump, that was topped off with their super high paid free agent savior, Von Miller, tearing his ACL.

    For a few months the Bills have been winning ugly/close games, yet still winning. If it wasnt for an utterly inexplicable goal line fumbled snap vs the Vikings they would have home field throughout the playoffs.

    The Bengals game was set to be huge but ended with tragedy. I do feel like the Bengals got the worst end of the deal. At the same time it felt like the world quickly moved on from being glad Damar was alive to "Burrow would have hung 40 on the Bills" and the world is out to get Cincinnati.

    Also, I find it sadly Ironic that the Bills have never been on tv as much as they have this season (in my out of market area) yet almost all of those games fell on days/nights I had to work (rotating shift work).

    I think the surprisingly high level of negativity on the Bills forums throughout the season has worn on me too. I've never seen fans so down on a 13-3 still in the hunt team.

    So I should be excited for the post season, but instead just feel rather meh. Of course I'd be stoked to see them finally win a superbowl.

    This was a baaad year for undersized qbs. Papa Brees is long gone. Tua and Murray got hurt. Wilson looks like he was a system qb after all.

    Bad year for Bryce Young to enter the draft haha.

    I’ve been on the “Bryce Young is hugely overrated” train for a while though.

    Bills open as an 8 point favorite on Miami. Sounds like Vegas doesn't think Tua is going to play. And those guys seems to know these things.

    No idea about Bryce Young, but CJ Shroud is getting massively over hyped. Happens with QBs every year for some reason.

    CJ Stroud at least looks the part, but yeah OSU has a history of guys with video game stats that don't necessarily translate to the NFL.

    The NFL couldn't handle another draft with no QB going until Round 3. Had to find somebody to inflate for the Texans to swing and miss on.

    Packers really gonna try and run this year's team back and expect a different result, huh.

    CJ Stroud can't score on a college team using the Ravens defense. All while he has future NFL players on his OL and all over his WR corp going against a defense that had maybe 2 future NFL players in the secondary. What's he gonna do on NFL teams using it? The team that drafts him is suckers.

    Commanders are jettisoning their OC, which means Rivera is probably safe.

    Makes sense, doubt they want to saddle the inevitable new owner with a 1st year coach they can't really fire without losing their reputation on the coaching market.

    Raiders aren't firing anyone.

    They should, but they aren't.
    Ex-Mod. Technically retired, they just won't let me quit.

    Welcome to the club. Really feels like after years of seeing 1/4 of the league turn over coaches every year we're down to the same teams every year.

    Probably a byproduct of I was trying to make some guesses at who gets hired where and realized the league's kinda burned through that entire crop of 30/40-some year old Wonderkind OCs.

    Broncos did that, and they also gave a massive contract to a bad, aging QB that runs into sacks and can't throw within 20 yards of the LOS. Will have to see how much it hurts with the coaching market, but doesn't seem like it will be too much of an issue. Just need to pay them a lot.

    At least Denver's got a "reputation of winning" even if that hasn't been true except for those few years with Manning. All Washington's got is a reputation of dysfunction. They one and done a coach and watch how fast we talk about them like we're talking about the Texans.

    I feel very meh about the playoffs. If Tua isn't playing, we should probably beat the Dolphins, but we'll struggle and make it look hard, and then I think we probably get bodied hard by the Bengals in the divisionals. Even if we squeak out the win because of home field, then we go to a neutral site for KC (unless the unthinkable happens and Jags/Chargers win against KC).

    Our best case scenario is somehow Ravens beating Bengals, Jags beating Chargers, and we get the Jags at home and maybe the Ravens continue an improbable run by beating KC.

    Even then, a Lamar-led Ravens is nothing to scoff at.

    Our defense has been decimated by injury, even before our backup safety had a literal heart attack on the field, and our offense has been lackluster. Pats offense outscored our offense last week, the difference were two kickoff returns for TDs. And I don't think we really even sat on a lead.
