IMO Mangini was an over rated coach that saw success based upon smoke and mirrors in his first season in NY. There is always a team in the NFL that gets on a roll and makes the playoffs that falls back down to reality the next season. The Browns were a perfect example of that this season. The Jets went all in this season and failed to make the playoffs while the Giants have turned into the dominant team in the NFL. The writing was on the wall for the Mangini when he failed to make the playoffs.
    IMO, Mangini is taking the fall for Mike Tannenbaum. Broadway Brett was supposed to get them into the playoffs and he ran out of gas. I would look at the person who acquired Favre.

    I guess what is really frustrating is that if you are a Bengals fan, you look at teams who are better than you firing their coaches and they have at least had success.

    I'm pretty sure I heard on ESPN that he has only won 1 playoff game since Elway retired.

    Time for a change. Good move in my opinion. Their division was not exactly the hardest division in the NFL this season. They had a 3 game lead with 3 to play and blew it...brutal.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Rumor here is that Jerry Jones will go after Shanahan to take over coaching the Cowboys in 2010.

    I just read that.

    Seriously though, just fire Wade Phillips and get it over with. I can't imagine wanting to coach a team that you know is only giving you a year and then you are out the door.

    Mangini appears to have emerged as a lead candidate for the Brown's head coaching job. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3807748

    He is said to have given a "compelling" interview and owner Randy Lerner is fascinated with him. So did Crennel, and for that matter - Wayne Krivsky.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    If the Browns do hire Mangini, they might as well have just stuck with Crennel. Same philosophy that hasn't worked outside of Foxborough.

    I think there's a pretty big personality difference between Mangini and Crennel. But, ultimately, if the HC and the GM are not on the same page, and/or if the owner won't keep his paws out of football, you're not copying what does work in NE.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the same thing happen to Gruden in Tampa...both the Bucs and Broncos choked away playoff births big time this year with total collapses at the end of the season.
    Nice call.

    Shanahan is gone. And now Gruden is gone. But Marvin wins less and he's forced to stay. And life goes on in Bungle Land. Nice job mikey.

    Now that is funny. I think the Marvin & Herm Edwards parts were the best parts. Thanks Slyder.

    I never realized how much Chris Mortenson looks like Barney Rubble.
