Could make the Bills a very, very serious team. They will, however, need an incredibly accurate QB to fit that offense (much like Brees)

They also let slip earlier that they're very interested in Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib.

Well of course they are, his college HC is now the Bills HC :P

Word now that the Cardinals are in negotiations with Steve Keim.

With Dave Caldwell, said to be pursuing other opportunities (per the link UNC posted elsewhere) it looks like the final two guys that the Jags were said to be choosing between have both bailed on them.

They had reached out to Tom Gamble for a second interview but he declined because he was focused on the Jets job (though apparently not focused enough to give a good interview). I suppose he could call tham back and say "ummm, I changed my mind" :lol:

Gotta wonder if the Jags will try to push for another interview with Marc Ross.

To be clear, the Panthers aren't technically required to interview all candidates. If they interview Ross today and decide he's the guy, they could hire him on the spot (wouldn't have to worry about the Rooney Rule since Ross satisfies it).

Mind you, from what I know that's not generally how the team operates. I suspect they'll interview everyone who takes the time to travel here (even if the decision is already made behind the scenes).

Teams are required to interview atleast one person of minority (As far as i know Hispanic, Asian, African or Native American are considered minority here) before hirering a candidate to Head Coach or Head of Football Operation positions, failure to comply costs 200.000 dollars in fines (or atleast did in 2003 when the Lions hired Mooch)

The Rooney Rule requires that any time a team has a job opening for their head coaching and/or GM positions, they must interview at least one minority candidate for the job.

When it was originally implemented (early 2000s I think) it applied only to head coaching jobs. Sometime in the past few years it was expanded to cover GMs as well.

It's named for Dan Rooney of the Steelers. He's the guy who created it.

He may not be a great head coach, but boy, Rex Ryan never fails to entertain.

In his (long awaited) season-closing press conference Ryan was asked a question about the tattoo of his wife wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey. He replied that if Sanchez doesn't play better, he's going to have the tattoo artist change the jersey number :lol:

Ryan also said he needs an offense that reflects "who he is" (guess that means this offseason they'll be looking for players who are overweight, foul-mouthed and have odd fetishes).

i think it means that they've got to get ryan's feet tattooed on them somewhere.
