    NFL's Black Monday

    The NFL's "Black Monday" is almost upon us. Does anyone have any thoughts on the following questions?

    Who is getting fired that deserves it?

    Who is getting fired that does not deserve it?

    Who is not getting fired who deserves it?

    Norv Turner deserves it. Not sure who he has pictures of, but he's a coordinator, not a head coach, and he's proven it over and over and over again.

    Please Cam Cameron, Please Cam Cameron, move in Parcells!

    I'm guessing Cam Cameron will be out. I don't know that he deserves it though.

    Re: NFL's Black Monday

    I think Brian Billick deserves to go after losing 8 in a row and counting. However it could have been a fluke after they finished 13-3 last year, but maybe last year was the fluke year.

    Totally agree! My once proud Redskin's franchise is still trying to recover from his disaster there.

    I cannot believe the Chargers can go from 14-2 to what 11-5 probably, especially in that terrible division they are in. They should not have lost a single division game!

    Re: NFL's Black Monday

    Norv and Cam Cameron are both Coordinators. Norv does deserve a little credit, I think he's adjusted well as they the Chargers have won 5 in a row. He'll probably blow their playoff game though. The Redskins problem is Dan Snyder. The list of player acquisitions in the past 10 years has been laughable. Over-the-hill Bruce Smith, Deion Sanders, Jeff George, and on and on. Norv gets a bad rap, much justified, but we'll find out when the playoffs start what he's made of with San Diego. The Chargers started bad, but they had a lot of injuries and are playing well now. Wade Phillips leaving for Dallas didn't help them either. I think it took them a while to adjust.

    I would agree that Billick deserves to go. His most damning offense was hiring a puke named Rick Neuheisel. That guy wrecks every football team he touches.

    Mike Molan - 49ers coach

    Brian Billik - Ravens coach (hot seat..)

    John Fox - Panthers coahc (hot seat..)


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I think that would be very dumb. What happened to giving a guy some time to rebuild a franchise?

    Crennel was on the hot seat very soon after he landed in Cleveland...many felt he would get canned following last season or surely would be this year.

    And now...10-6...needing the Colts to win tonight to get into the playoffs - biggest surprise in the NFL this season.

    The 49ers took a step backwards this year but I do think Nolan is the man for the job.

    Scott Linehan. The Rams should have set every offensive record in the book with this "genius" running the show. Now they're getting old and they might as well start over.

    Re: NFL's Black Monday

    I'm a Chiefs fan, and the thought of Herm Edwards being fired never crossed my mind, but I definitely wouldn't disagree with that move.

    Linehan could probably get canned to, that wouldn't surprise me either. But I think he gets another year to try and right the ship.

    Re: NFL's Black Monday

    Herm Edwards needs to go and can the GM Carl Peterson while you are at it too. Scares me to think how the Chiefs will make another dumb pick in the first round and some other ones that make you scratch your head in the middle rounds as well. Chiefs have done a terrible job drafting lately. They have uncovered a few gems like LJ, Allen, Hali, and D. Johnson but they don't do a good job of filling needs or drafting guys that are good enough to stay on the roster long.

    Herm is an over-rated coach too, hell I'd even take Marty back right now. He may not win the big games in the playoffs but at least the Chiefs got there more often than not with him.

    Re: NFL's Black Monday

    Chiefs need to fire Edwards, and get Schottenheimer back. Those were the days!

    Although they wouldn't win a playoff game, ever. But that's better than not going to the playoffs, which is where they are headed now, and for the foreseeable future.
