After reading all about Ross, he's really the guy at the top of my list. I hope we get him.

Chiefs go after Reid and then let Pioli (GM) go.

No feelings one way or the other, but Pioli may also be a candidate for Panthers.

Hmm, Interesting on the Marc Ross wanting to build his own coaching staff.


Doubt he gets the job now, I'm actually going to say that Dawson gets it.

According to ESPN Insider Chris Sprow, the best fit for Chip Kelly is?

1. Carolina Panthers

Benefit: The ideal QB to bring Kelly to the pro game



Carolina may not have an opening just now, but we're looking at best fits -- not top openings -- and the Panthers would match well with Kelly.

This week, we've heard endless debates about whether Prototype Made-For-College Coach® Chip Kelly can become a successful NFL head coach. Meanwhile, the Redskins are headed to the playoffs under Prototype Made-For-NFL Coach® Mike Shanahan. That matters, because that Redskins team is going to the playoffs in a season in which they busted out zone-read plays regularly and their starting quarterback ran the ball 120 times in 15 games, with 77 of those coming as designed runs. Meanwhile, Kelly's starting QB at Oregon this year, Marcus Mariota -- in a scheme some dismiss as something that will never work in the NFL -- had run 98 times in 12 games heading into the Fiesta Bowl.


So consider the raw numbers: Kelly's offense exposed his QB to hits via runs and scrambles about 8.2 times per game, an almost identical rate to Shanahan's 8.0 times a game. Break it down on a per-play basis, and the discrepancy barely changes.



And the Oregon passing offense has also been brutally efficient. Mariota ranked sixth nationally in passer rating this season while Darron Thomas ranked 11th last season and 17th the season before that.Kelly's offense is not Shanahan's offense, but let's get this out of the way as a starting point: If Kelly can be prosecuted by analysts as a guy running a "college" offense that is criminally negligent in exposing his QB to hits, Shanahan might as well occupy the same jail cell after directing the NFL's offensive story of the season in Washington. Offenses evolve up levels, and they evolve down. Close observers of Oregon's offense know this, and note that Oregon does a lot more that would be considered "old school" even by NFL standards than many realize. Don't let the pace blind you. As Chris Brownrecently wrote in a fantastic explanation, "Oregon is successful because it does well what good teams have always done well, albeit with a slightly more modern wardrobe."



In Carolina, Kelly would be handed a QB in Cam Newton who would create the easiest transition for him in terms of having a QB fully capable of taking a hit when exposed as a runner, and one fully capable of marrying those running skills to a down-the-field passing game. Again, what Kelly would bring to the NFL would not leave people shaking their heads, believing some sort of revolution is upon us. But based on what he does well, it's hard to find a better place to start in terms of offensive personnel than Carolina.

And as Shanahan, with his own suddenly "gimmicky" offense, might re-direct when asked about how that offense made the Redskins' season: "What about the defense?"

I think that was just speculation from a Giants guy with a blog. I haven't seen it referenced anywhere else.

We do know for sure that the Jets have told potential GMs that Rex is the guy. Speculation would say that makes Tom Gamble (who's worked with Ryan before) the top guy on their list. I don't think it knocks Ross out of the running though.

That said, I have my doubts that's where he'll end up.

Here's some interesting speculation.

Daniel Jeremiah from NFL.com wonders if Monte Kiffin might be an option for the Chiefs DC,

It's entirely reasonable that he'd want to build his own staff, most GM's are like that. I think Rivera might need to go for the Panthers to find the right GM to build the team up to a contender.

Being reported by Albert Breer that Washington Coach Steve Sarkisian is turning down NFL interviews.
