I think they were on the right track with Chip Kelly. Dude is one of the better coaches in America IMO. And paying players is legal in the NFL.

Only a matter of time before he makes that jump.

Meh.

Show me a game day film of a college coach with a gimmicky offense who has made the transition successfully to Sunday and I'll show you JoePaPervEnabler actually coaching a game and both will be the same age.

Only way Cheat Kelly makes the leap is if the spread is legitimized on Sunday.

Old point of view, but I don't know why any of these successful college coaches ever willingly leave.

They're gods.

I meant my PoV about not understanding why any college coach would ever leave is old.
Not talking about your PoV.

I've said before those guys are kings in Camelot and I don't know why you'd ever want to leave.

I think Peyton gets bought in by Snyder to Skins.

Flynn winds up in Maime

We could sit tight at 4 and let RG3 drop to us. Or we might only need to give up a 3 to lock it in before draft in March. Rams might go for that knowing at 4 they still get a stud they covet.

I don't understand why people keep connecting Peyton with places like Washington & Miami. At his age, why would he consider going anywhere that isn't already a contender or at least becomes one upon his arrival?

San Francisco, the Jets, maybe Baltimore; those are the kinds of places that'd make sense to me. Even teams like Arizona, Seattle, and Kansas City would make more sense than Washington or Miami.

In no way is he gonna get himself involved with the Jets.

The others I agree, although, Miami is worth a mention cause he's always down there, but I'd doubt that has enough pull.

I don't think he goes to Washington b/c they're pretty far away.

I think Miami becomes immeasurably better with Peyton, and that team is actually pretty solid most other places. Drawback - have to play outdoors, have to play Tom Brady twice a year.

Same goes for the Jets.

Arizona makes some sense b/c of the dome.

Seattle and KC are also outdoor venues that are in about the same boat as Miami & NYJ.

San Fran... I just don't see Peyton wanting to deal with a coach like Harbaugh.

And Baltimore ain't giving up on their Flacco yet.

Houston would be probabaly #1 on his wish list. Dome, good team around him, chance to stick it to the Colts twice a year.

I think what's being lost in this discussion is just how upset The Solja is about who the Bucs hired.

It truly is a shame the Bucs owner didn't consult the most important man in the history of the universe before making this hire.

You may be right with Mangini and it ticks me off because the way the situation was when he was hired in Cleveland prevented that from EVER happening here.

Mangini now has had the time off to gain the perspective he needs to become the kind of coach who can win a Super Bowl. If he had stayed here, it would've been more losing seasons before the inevitable firing.

Someone will give him a chance at some point, he won't make the same mistakes he made in Cleveland and New York, and then we'll hear the inevitable interview about "how much he learned from his time in Cleveland."

Not saying I want Mangini back, but this is a prediction I can see coming true.

I had to confirm this because a lot of pundits and folks on TV were high on Skelton at the end of the year. Alas, dude completed 55% of his passes with an 11/14 TD/INT ratio and looked pretty much the same as Kolb all year. Not sure those guys aren't the same person.

I don't see the Redskins as being as far away as everyone thinks. If they cant grab a decent WR in free agency and re-sign Fred Davis, that team is pretty decent. A lot of it depends on your perspective about whether D'Angelo Hall is even remotely capable at CB (I don't) and whether Kerrigan continues to progress into the beast that he can become. Defense is Browns level or better, and the run game/o-line will definitely punish some people next year with a healthy Hightower spelling Helu/Royster.

Bold statement #2: Even with Flynn, they're still the second best team in that division next year, maybe #1 if the Giants fall apart post-super bowl like they did last time. (Maybe)

EDIT: I still think Peyton goes to Zona, New York Jets, or Miami though.

I think he'd have to first get another Head Coaching job, which is probably dicey. How many jobs opened up this year, and he wasn't considered for any of them. Not sure how time is gonna make him much more attractive.

Then, if he did get a job, he's have to expand his mind beyond the antiquated ground-and-pound style if he even wanted a realistic shot at a SB.

Oh, and he's gonna need a GREAT GM... one that is strong enough to tell him "No" during Free Agency and the draft, one that can draft like a star to build the kind of team that Mangini wants and have it be competitive in today's NFL, and one who also wants to hire a guy with a history of clashing with GM's.

So you're saying there's a chance...
