What's the over / under on how many people want us to bring in Andy Reid when he gets fired in Philly?

Hahahahahahaha. This is definately the best we could hope for if Hurney has anything to do with it.

I hope not. Reid isnt much different than Chud, he dont like to run the ball that much and prefers a "finesse" offense. I'm all for creativity and flash, but sometimes you gotta go to the basics to get a tough yard or two and Reid seems to struggle with that. No thanks.

I'm not at all advocating bringing him here. But I'm willing to bet fans are going to be begging for him in droves...just like they are any other retired / fired head coach who has had any measurable success in their career.

While we're rooting for unrealistic options, give me Vince Lombardi. Or Tom Landry. Or Blanton Collier. Maybe Mike Ditka? Oh, I know, Marv Levy.

monunmentally bad idea.

at least think of someone relevant and not some dinosaur from a past era.

just because he won a ring (after how many years of trying) and he looks like sgt slaughter and he has a big intimidating jaw and he yells and spits a lot doesn't mean that he'd be a great coach.

btw....cowher wouldn't have been as successful were it not for dick lebeau being his DC for so long.

and don't think grudlen either. dude is vastly overrated and was not liked by his players for being an argumentative and egotistical prick and there's a reason nobody has wanted him for a HC gig other than some community college a couple years ago.

I hope we explode after the bye week so I don't have to hear this crap anymore, and cowher can go back to enjoying that sr. citizen discount.

I hope we explode after the bye week so I don't have to hear this crap anymore, and people can finally realize that Rivera is a quality coach.

Fixed to my liking.

I would take Jon Gruden over Bill Cowher.

I'd take Mike Zimmer over either of those (over Reid too).

Moot question though.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
