I never understand firing a coach after one year unless it was a disaster, and Denver was bad but not that bad, IMO.

Del Rio surprises me. He rebuilt a bad team and had one bad year.

I can’t believe they fired Del Rio ...

Nothing against Gruden but Del Rio
and management turned around a
complete mess since that super bowl
pooch screw ... firing a staff every year
with drunk Al Davis calling into call plays
in between clinking ice cubes

Capers out as DC in Green Bay ...

Wonder how many coordinators will take the
blame before captain double chin gets the axe?

I hope a lot .. he is a terrible coach imo

Ted Thompson out as GM in Green Bay. I realize he isn't a coach...

I'm a bit surprised, and maybe disappointed. That roster he made really stinks outside of one guy. Don't believe me? Ask the coaches, players, and fans who vote for the ProBowl. Or watch their games. Two home shutouts. Three overtime victories over bad teams that brought them just past the double-digit loss line. I'd take three of their linemen (and their QB), but the rest... Yuck.

And between Cobb, Nelson, and Adams, they are paying $35 million for WR's next season, and they had 400+, 600+, and 800+ yards this season. And in theory could all be looking at their best years being in the past (if Adams concussions cut his career short, unfortunately).

Wow. That is a shock. Smart, but a shock.

So Capers and Thompson? Dammit. What's Fran Foley doing these days, hope he applies.
