Not much of a black monday based on what I am seeing on ESPN. Only coach reported as fired is Chip Kelly as of right now

Teams that could be making changes in general manager, head coach, and coaching staff members could be evaluating their options today before making any final decisions before moving forward.

Mike Smith.. He seems like someone the 49ers would hire. Wouldn't be the right fit, but..

Talk is of a trade between the Rams and Saints for Payton.. What actually kinda catches my eye is him going to Denver. Young QB there as well if they're going to stick with Siemien.

Teams like Buffalo.. I question what's going on there. They've pretty much soured the relationship with Taylor.. And.. Where do they go? There's not going to be a big name QB available.. So, a new coach is either going to be working with EJ Manuel or a crappy free agent.

Oh, not that SF is any better. Kaepernick is out, and he's one of the aforementioned crappy free agents.

All need new head coaches. Rumors are that if Houston loses to Oakland in the first round Bill O'Brien could get the axe. Also some grumblings about Los Angeles going after Sean Payton.
O'Brien is going nowhere, unless there is a better coach on hand ready to step in. O'Brien has won division titles with crappy QBs handed to him. GM may be a better suited change.

I like Obrien, he was the one who got in Tom Brady's Face about 5 years ago after Brady yelled at a receiver because he threw a INT. lol

I do hope we see some new names.. Not the same old rehashes of coaches.

Russ Grimm I'm still high on.. I think he's ready. Put him with a good OC and you'll have a good team.

Kyle Shanahan.. He's going to be a HC sometime.. I think it's still a bit early, and I don't particularly think he's suited for the job.. An angry Norv Turner is who he reminds me of. Great OC.. Probably a horrible HC. But.. Then again, the problem with Norv I always thought was that he wasn't ever angry. He never had any emotion. So, perhaps Kyle would make a good HC. I don't think so, but.. I don't think he gets serious looks this year.

I like coaches who don;t show emotion like Andy Reid. I hated coaches like Tom Coughlin who could only frown up and not come up with a winning game plan

I love the term "fired" in the NFL. All of these coaches are millionaires and will likely continue making millions wherever they end up in whatever position they end up in, especially if it is a high profile college gig. They all live in a different world. Hard to feel sorry for anyone here.
