Bad choices of words there.With those words, I put him and his Jets on the hot seat going into next year!
The Buccaneers fired Raheem Morris
The Rams fired coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney
Santonio Holmes days with the Jets are numbered. With his attitude, he's going to play himself out of the league
Colts vice chairman Bill Polian and general manager Chris Polian are out in Indianapolis, a source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.
If you don't have the "pulse" then you should get fired"Normally, Im a guy that really has the pulse of this team, and I dont think I had the pulse of the team the way Ive done in the past," Ryan said at a news conference. "When I met with players, I think that became clear to me."
Bears fire GM Jerry Angelo and OC Mike Martz won't return
Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie announced Tuesday that coach Andy Reid will return in 2012 for his 14th season as the team's coach.
Norv Turner will return as coach of the Chargers

Rex on the hot seat already? Nah. It will take a couple more years of poor showings to get him out. He's already brought the Jets to the AFC Championship game twice. His third season they go 8-8 and people want to talk about how he could be on the heat seat next year? I think that's a bit overreacting.
Not surprised that Norv is staying, I never expected him to be fired. He has this next year to prove he deserves an extension though.
Finishing first in their division for three consecutive years and eventually finishing second in two straight years, be thankful that he's not having the same stint that he had while he was in Oakland or else, they would canned him.

Then there's AJ Smith. Yeah, lets resign Jeromy Clary for 12 million, but let Darren Sproles walk for less than that. Good call. Lets not sign VJax long term. Lets go out and sign Bob Sanders who had one good season 3 years ago and can't stay healthy for one series, let alone a whole season. And on top of that, lets not draft a player in the last 3 years who's been worth anything. He's only had TWO decent picks (Vasquez and Mathews) in 3 years. That's beyond awful. He had good drafts from 04-07 with guys like Rivers, Kaeding, Merriman, Phillips, Hardwick, Sproles, VJax, Castillo, etc, but he's just lost his touch.
Both should have been canned tbh. They need to make a splash in free agency to get some good depth going or they are screwed.
I'm glad the Bears finally got rid of Jerry Angelo and hopefully the new GM will get rid of Lovie too. Mike Martz being gone makes me happy as well because the Bears have NEVER been a good passing team, they've always been a running team. I see them losing Matt Forte because they refuse to give him the money and extension he deserved. One of these days the Bears may make it back to the Super Bowl with a GM that will get an offensive line either through the draft or free agency. Maybe some good wide receivers too.
Hue Jackson fired as coach of the Raiders
Hoping the Bucs can get Perry Fewell as their next head coach or the Niners' defensive coordinator. Marty Schottenheimer has been interviewed and I always liked him (he got a raw deal, being fired after a 14-2 season in San Diego), but I worry that the game might have past him by since he's been gone. Mike Sherman has also been interviewed, but I really think they need a defensive guy. Their D was absolute sh*t this season. Wade Phillips is definitely not the answer. Luckily he decided to not interview for the job. He's proved he's a good D coordinator, but not head coach material.
And Mel Kiper is smoking crack. He has Tampa taking Trent Richardson with the 5th overall pick. Apparently he forgot how good of a season LeGarrette Blount had last year. There's no way in hell they don't draft Morris Claiborne to replace Ronde. Then they need a linebacker in the 2nd. They didn't seem to make any effort with all their cap money to improve the team in the offseason. They let Barrett Ruud go without a fight which was their first mistake. Maybe LaMichael James is there in the 3rd round. That's the earliest they should be thinking running back.

The worst part about Mel Kiper, is he's still way better than Todd McShay
Roger Goodell is here to stay as commissioner of the NFL.
NEW YORK -- Now that the NFL has labor peace for the next decade, commissioner Roger Goodell has job security through the 2018 season.
Not only did Goodell get through one of the league's most contentious and troubling periods -- a 4½-month lockout of the players -- but he oversaw a highly successful season once a 10-year collective bargaining agreement was reached. On Wednesday, he reaped some rewards himself with a contract extension through March 2019.
Yay, the NFL will be dead before his contract is up.
The Bucs have finally hired a new coach.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finalized a five-year deal to hire Rutgers coach Greg Schiano as their new head coach.
The 45-year-old former Scarlet Knights coach was hired Thursday, more than three weeks after the Bucs fired Raheem Morris following a 4-12 record.Thank God he walked away without a scratch. It could have been a lot worse for anyone, especially the stupid driver who should have never gotten behind the wheel.PHILADELPHIA -- State police say Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek was a passenger in a car involved in an early morning DUI crash.
No one was hurt in Thursday morning's crash on a highway off-ramp near the team's stadium in South Philadelphia.
Police say the car's driver was driving too fast when he spun out and hit a concrete barrier around 2:30 a.m. The driver failed field sobriety testing and was arrested on DUI charges. Celek is not facing charges.
Celek, who turned 27 on Wednesday, released a statement through the team saying he exhibited "extremely poor judgment."
"I did not know that the person driving the car was over the legal limit, but that's not an excuse. I put my life in danger and was in a vehicle that put other people's lives in danger, and that's just not the way I operate. It will not happen again," he said in the statement, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
Celek caught 62 passes for the Eagles last season, including five touchdown catches. He had surgeries to repair a torn labrum in his left hip and for a sports hernia earlier this month.

@ this year's HOF inductees. What a horrible class. Curtis Martin is deserving, but Cris Carter and Jerome Bettis getting snubbed over guys like Willie Roaf and Dermontti Dawson. Could have also made a case for Tim Brown and Andre Reed.
Willie Roaf and Dermotti Dawson were perhaps the best players at their respective positions for a number of years, I don't see how either of them aren't Hall of Famers. I'm more preturbed about Bill Parcells not getting in than almost anyone else, wtf is that all about?
Yeah, Bill Parcells as well. I understand that the two were good, but for some reason I just can't see putting in too many lineman, unless you were a Orlando Pace, Larry Allen, or Bruce Matthews. To me, the guys I mentioned had far more outstanding careers, especially Carter. What a joke.
