I don't understand your reply, tr. I didn't say that many or most NFL cities are not up to snuff, whatever that means. I said that many (or most?) NFL cities would not be celebrating a record such as Marvin's, but rather would be frustrated at the lack of success and calling for his firing. Is that the point you're disputing? If so, I'm puzzled as to why you would attempt to. Coaches with far better records and lists of accomplishments have been run out (or nudged out) of NFL cities many times. Heck, a story came out just this week that hinted that the Steelers' three-game, season ending winning streak may have saved Mike Tomlin's job, and this less than twelve months after he won the Super Bowl.
