that wouldn't be the first time he did something like that. it's essentially what happened with andy reid, isn't it? i mean he didn't have the title, but he had the power.

I don't remember if it happened right up front.

I know the Jags did it with Tom Coughlin.

By the way, I saw where Mike Lombardi predicted Ron Rivera would be fired on Monday. Anyone else see that? :unsure:

Just reviving an oft-quoted line from earlier in the offseason :lol:

Lombardi was dead certain of it but dead wrong. People here beat that drum to death and it never happened.

talking about lombardi being "sure" that rivera was going to be fired made me think of this that i just saw tweeted a little while ago...

Lombardi was "convinced" in April '11 Mallett would go top-20. RT @GregABedard Lombardi in CLE puts Ryan Mallett trade back on front burner

having the browns trade for the overrated ryan mallett would be the great equalizer. just when you think they might be moving away from the traditional sucky cleveland brown way....they up and trade for mallett. that would just be hilarious.
