    Carroll is such a backstabber, making scapegoats of his assistant coaches. I've lost what little respect I had for him.

    To take everyone's temperature, do you understand the mindset of a man who feels the need to pose like this for a picture? He looks like a Brand more than a coach. And that will be why this will fail.

    Mularkey got fired for losing to the Patriots, after being told he was getting an extension for beating the Chiefs.

    Ian Rapoport @RapSheet
    #Titans GM Jon Robinson and CEO Steve Underwood told coach Mike Mularkey before the game and told him they were extended him and he was their guy. They said they'd get it done after the game. Now this.

    This is the one situation I can understand the coach trying to sabotage the admin side. When they are lying bastards.

    The Seahawk O-line definitely laid some Cable this year.

    Who the hell is that next to him? Nice haircut




    Regarding Gruden: I make those faces all the time and no one pays me squat. Can't turn down 100 million to grimace on the sidelines (I guess it's not known how much is guaranteed...). But seriously, who thinks Chucky will return to 16 hour days, 7 days a week after the relative sinecure of the warm broadcast booth.

    Tom Cable has a good rep as an O line coach. He had little to work with the last two seasons. SEA is getting old on the D side of the ball, and if you can stop their running game they struggle. Cable and Bevell will get jobs.

    Can't agree. Cable was universally loathed for doing nothing with the o line and the run game in Seattle for years. This year he had:

    During Tom Cable's tenure in Seattle (2011-17), the #Seahawks drafted 4 OL in Rounds 1-2:

    T James Carpenter
    T Justin Britt
    T Germain Ifedi
    C Ethan Pocic
    Emphasizing @RaidersAnalysis' point, none of the above OL have met expectations in the NFL.

    In addition:

    Doug Farrar @BR_DougFarrar
    And these weren't players handed to Cable by the front office. Increasingly, Cable was the one making the calls on o-line personnel. He had all the advantages, and he still blew it.

    That's the advantage free agency has over the draft. You pretty much know what you're getting. You don't have to translate college tape to NFL tape. You already have NFL tape. Case in point: Jahri Evans.

    Did he learn that from the BEST BACKSTABBER amongst NFL HC's, Mike McCarthy?

    The #Vikings will have to replace OC Pat Shurmur when he takes over the #Giants. Two key names they'll consider: Former #Broncos OC Mike McCoy & former #Giants coach Ben McAdoo. Both are in the mix for other jobs, too.

    Ben McAdoo needs to take a year off to think about what he allowed to happen in New York this Season

    McAdoo needs to maybe take a year off for some instruction in ZEN or it's equivalent.
