    Doubtful. Especially with the way that Patricia seems to have made the jump in terms of adjusting on the fly.. The Pats need players who can stay healthy more than anything else. And I'd put money that many of the injuries are due to the lack of an off-season program.

    I agree. After his debacle with the Broncos Josh McDaniels ruined another franchise and cost another person his job. Hiring McDaniels to destroy the Rams offense, drafts, and Bradford's development was probably the biggest mistake of Spagnualo's HC career so far. The Rams offense is dead last in the NFL in points per game (11 per game), total yards, and 3rd down percentage.

    Earlier today NFLN was saying it will be 2013 at the earliest before he considers it.

    I'm not going to believe anything I hear about him leaving (or staying) until the press conference. Way too much misinformation and rumors being thrown out there.

    No, they were eliminated with their 38-10 loss to the Lions last week.

    The Bolts will can their GM and HC. Grudes is in line to be HC while the GM moves to St Louis.

    I'm somewhat flummoxed at the havoc Josh McD apparently wreaked in StL. WTF happened?

    He was born and lived in Whitinsville until he moved to Grafton, where he played high school football before playing collegiately at a Springfield area college, I believe. I heard this afternoon on WFAN that he is headed to Philly as their DC next year.

    I don't know what ESPN pays Gruden, but Shanahan is working under a five year, $35 million contract. Kraft keeps BB the highest paid HC in the NFL, so he's probably getting a little over that. So, Gruden would probably want Shanahan money or just a little less, say between $6 and $7 a year for five years.

    Gruden is still a young guy (doesn't turn 50 until 2013), so it's hard to imagine that he wouldn't take another gig with a big contract.

    I thought I read somewhere that Gruden just signed a 5 year contract...? Odd that he'd change his mind now.

    Now see, I like him and enjoy listening to him. The man is a damned fine coach, and the detail he brings to the booth and the games is very nice. For me, at least.

    I agree. He's a helluva lot better than Dennis Miller, would you guys rather him?

    That's odd. I was watching ESPN last night and they were talking about this and "re-confirmed" that he was not going anywhere.

    No Jersey Selected

    according to espn the chargers were the team nobody wanted to play. i guess no one wanted to play them except the lions. i was hoping the chargers would win a couple of games and save norv's job. if gruden does go there, he's got a pretty big rebuilding job on his hands.

    Umm...because he SUCKS. Period! This guy was another promoted aide to an assistant's assistant, and because he came out of Belichick's Stable.....he was going to be a genius too. Just like mangina and we all know how that one turned out. I think mistakenly he got all the credit for the 2007 high powered offense....when in reality it was BB pulling those strings....McD is a fraud.
