    This is Andy Reid's Year

    And four days after being fired by the Eagles, he became the Chiefs HC.

    This is Andy Reid's Year

    Reid built the foundation for the Eagles but it was time for him to move on when he did. Even when he was fired, Lurie still gave him a game ball and celebrated his time here because they knew how important he was, and his influence in many ways still is with the Eagles, especially after the mess of Chip.

    Kevin Stefanski new Browns HC

    Actually, yes. Saban otherwise might very well have been back in the NFL by now.
  4. Still, you are not supposed to blow a 24-0 lead, let alone in the EPIC way it happened here.
  5. There was already talk O'Brien needed to make a deep playoff run to keep his job. A game like today could have very well cost him that.

    NFC Divisional: Seahawks @ Packers

    😂😂😂
  7. I would think o"Brien gets fired after this meltdown.

    Kevin Stefanski new Browns HC

    That is well known with Terri Saban (Nick's wife). It's been noted quite a few times she is "Queen of the Ball" at Alabama and that is something she can't be in the NFL. In the case of Josh McDaniels, I believe it was specific to Indy.

    Kevin Stefanski new Browns HC

    From what I remember reading, it was Mrs. McDaniels who didn't want to go there after he accepted.

    Matt Rhule new Panthers HC

    Just going by what I remember. Obviously, you know better than me. That doesn't change though the main point: I thought Rhule would have been a great choice to take over when Chip was fired because he knew Philly from his time at Temple and he subsequently showed why at Baylor and why he is getting almost Gruden-like money in Carolina (something apparently a number of other NFL owners hate Panthers owner David Tepper for doing, BTW). Of course, the Eagles took Doug who has shown to be a great HC himself, especially this year when many other HCs probably don't pull off winning four straight to win the NFC East the way the Eagles had to after a bad loss to the Dolphins.

    Tennessee has been all Derrick Henry. Titans became the first team since 1974 to fail to pass for 100 yards in back-to-back games and win both (ironically the 1972 & '73 Dolphins and '74 Steelers all did that and WON the Super Bowl). Chiefs or Texans will I think find a way to stop Henry.

    Matt Rhule new Panthers HC

    Rhule came in with Golden, who did in fact start the turnaround. Rhule stayed on and eventually became HC himself and took Temple to a whole new level they had that Golden didn't before leaving for Miami that Temple never really experienced up to that point. That's why at the time Chip was fired I felt Rhule should have taken over as Eagles HC: He had already coached here (albeit at Temple) and knew what the Philly media was like. At the time of the Notre Dame game, Temple WAS looking at a NY6 Bowl and even possibly if they went unbeaten a very slim shot at making the playoff. The loss at USF didn't even kill the NY6 hopes because beating Houston likely puts them in such (Houston had a great season that year). The bowl game loss was understandable. Of course, it did work out in the end very well for the Eagles with in some ways Doug doing his best coaching job this season given all the injuries and also showing why Josh McCown will likely be an HC himself eventually if he wants to do it.

    Matt Rhule new Panthers HC

    That's with hindsight. Back in 2016, we didn't know what Doug would be. Doug has proven himself since then, but my point was, Rhule had already proven what he could do at Temple, a program that when he took over was THE LAUGHINGSTOCK of College Football and made it to where they nearly got to a New Year's Six bowl in 2015.

    Matt Rhule new Panthers HC

    And there was no way the Giants would match that. Giants still have an older portion of the fanbase that would get upset enough about paying an HC that level of money they would go as far as to not renew their season tickets over such that they have to cater to, as many of them have had season tickets since the Yankee Stadium days.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    That explains why the Giants didn't go for Rhule. There is still a certain portion of the fanbase that is much older and would be upset at paying ANYONE that much to be HC (even if it is the going rate) and would threaten to not renew their PSL, season tickets, etc. over it.
