I think it was Carolina or back to Oregon from the jump. Once we retained Ron I figured Chip would go back to Oregon... And would be shocked if he doesn't go back

Yup exactly what I was thinking.

You knoe Kelly would've love to have Cam.

If Rivera fail next season, I can almost gurantee Kelly would be a hot name to Carolina

Actually, turns out the issue with Kelly harkens back to a prior story.

Per Jason LaCanfora, one of the big sticking points in the negotiations with Kelly was...roster control.

The Browns were willing to give a certain amount (precisely how much isn't certain but Haslam sounded pretty giving). The Eagles may have been offering more money, but were said to be less likely to offer roster control because owner Jeffrey Lurie believes strongly in Howie Roseman (strong enough that he fired Andy Reid).

Turns out inital reports about what he wanted may have been right.

UTKevinAcee: Chargers have two more GM interviews scheduled, but it seems those might not happen. All but certain it's Jimmy Raye or Tom Telesco.

Jimmy Raye? Really? Fascinating.

Jimmy Raye? Really? Fascinating.

In-house candidate that they seem to really like. I'd assume if he isn't hired, he probably wouldn't stick around too much longer. I think I read that many league sources expect him to be a GM at some point, either in SD or elsewhere.

Well, this is interesting...

Jason LaCanfora says that if Mike McCoy gets a head coaching job, one of the candidates to take over as Broncos OC could be...Ken Whisenhunt (assuming he doesn't get an HC job elsewhere).

Pulled from the same Pro Football Weekly column referenced in the other thread...

The Jets’ (GM) job is not real attractive for a lot of reasons. It’s a bad locker room with a lot of overpaid players at a lot of positions with (crappy) contracts. It’s a complete teardown. The big question (the new GM) is going to have to figure out fast is — does the head coach have any fight left in him? Once the season starts again and you’re stuck in the same situation with the same quarterback and you don’t have enough good players or a capable QB, how much is the head coach going to have left in him? Bringing Rex (Ryan) back for another year may only set back the franchise another year. The GM should be able to make that decision on the front end.”

Seeing more speculation that Monte Kiffin might become the DC for Andy Reid in Kansas City.

That would be great.

Miss him in the NFL.

AND

He wouldn't be in our division.

True :lol:

Though as I recall, the last time we met, we handled his defense pretty well (and that was with John Fox and Jeff Davidson calling the shots).
