Mr. Scot

Black Monday

7 posts in this topic

Coach firings, GM firings, resignations, reassignments...

Speculation is that tomorrow could be one of the most active "Black Mondays" in a while.

As mentioned elsewhere, Cleveland is getting the early start. Word from ESPN Radio is that the firing of Phil Savage - a guy who put together rosters with a fair amount of Pro Bowl talent - could mean that the team is going all out for either Scott Pioli or Bill Cowher.

Most of those are expected... I'm kinda surprised at Mangini.

Charlie Weis is pretty much the only branch left on the Belichick coaching tree. The rest have been trimmed.

Mangini was a bad call. He shouldn't have been fired. The Jets biggest mistake was swapping Pennington for Favre this season.

ESPN also reporting that Bill Cowher has told the Browns he isn't interested.

Another year off, or holding out for a better offer?

Also of note, Browns owener Randy Lerner might be interested in a Scott Pioli-Eric Mangini pairing.

The Power of the Favre.

Mangini was a bad decision. With as much as they spent last offseason whoever they bring in will be fighting a huge uphill battle. Think about where the Panthers would be today if Richardson caved in to all the fans calling for Fox's head.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
