Doug Marrone to be Jags HC.

Did a decent enough job in Buffalo when he had Schwartz coaching a great D I guess. EJ Manuel was his guy also though.

One second - Jacksonville actually hired Doug Marrone based off week 16/17

My god

No wonder they suck

They've literally chose continuity on offence - did they not watch any of their games this year or something?

Kind of a weird move; if you like Marrone, surely you have to get rid of Bradley sooner?

I actually dont think Marrone is a bad HC. Being a HC is far more than coordinating 1 side of the ball as his successor in Buffalo proved

Clearly Jacksonville viewed Gus Bradley as the big problem which likely isn't that far off

At his best I think McCarthy is as good a game day coach as Belichick, just not as consistent and lacks the knack the latter has for talent. His adjustments in game were spot on, i.e.changing up his RB to Michael (to give them a more direct pounding type runner) and running more crossing routes. That led to the Giants running less blitzes and giving Rodgers more time. I'm just not sure the Cowboys will afford them the same opportunities. Could be a shootout next week.

Funny because the biggest knock against McCarthy for years is his in game management.

Actually the weird part is then Making Coughlin Exec VP. Talk about a potential power struggle. This is either genius or madness. Roll on next season!

Meanwhile in Giants player and transportation news, the Giants plane home from GB was delayed 3 hours after so they could clean up after them.

I'd expect it to be delayed because they couldn't hit the runway...

Especially when that market has literally said they do not want another team, and in the process you've alienated a great historical football city in San Diego

The NFL really is successful in spite of itself most of the time

The whole thing is pathetically cheap. Spanos is paying a 650m fee to move yet will only commit 350m towards a new stadium.

Glad a city finally told a team to piss off and spend some of their own vast reserves.

Sucks to see the Chargers leave San Diego. Something wrong with a league that lets teams just abandon the fans who have supported it and invested money, time and emotion in it for over half a centruy.

Nauseating to read the cliches and platitudes about how hard the decision was etc. If San Diego and its fans meant that much to Spanos and the NFL they'd have found a way to make it work. They were hellbent on two teams in LA no matter what. Hopefully LA has two stinky teams for many, many years to come.

The Redskins offense is well designed despite Cousins limitations. The Rams badly need a coach that can save Goff, he looked completely unready.

Our offense looks ok on the stat sheet. It moves the ball generally well. Scratch the surface this surface this season and you find an offense that was historically inefficient- only one other team in NFL history has compiled as many total yards as we did and scored less points. The main reason for that was McVay's inability to solve our redzone problems... which in part stemmed from his inability to solve our problems running the ball. Then on top of all that, our offense repeatedly showed up looking unprepared and flat in the biggest of games.

I may be wrong but I don’t think McVay is HC material yet.

It's official...

Sean McVay is confirmed as the Rams' new HC.

Redskins now looking for a new OC as well as a new DC.

For all I think McVay had to up his game as an OC I would have preferred to see him stay. It's not ideal for our efforts to take the next step to have such significant upheaval on both sides of the ball.

Wade Phillips to the Rams as DC

That should help McVay. Can just let Phillips get on with running that side of the ball.

It's another poke in the eye for the Redskins though who seemingly had an interview scheduled with him today.

What's happened to us?? We used to be the Kings of the offseason Wink

Would imagine Phillips as DC was a big part of the reason McVay was hired by LA - will be interesting to see if he can work with Goff to get the best out of him like he did Cousins. Needs to be a huge talent infusion on that offensive side of the ball though

Cannot wait for the games this weekend - divisional round is always the best NFL weekend, and we have 3 properly heavyweight matchups

Looks like the Las Vegas Raiders is happening.

Can't help thinking that with the lack of cities willing to stump up new stadia, are they waking up to the realisation that an NFL franchise mostly benefits the owners not the local economy? I know there's a lot of money sloshing around Vegas, but can it really sustain a franchise the way an area like Oakland or LA can? It's not like they can attract a lot of fans from outside the city!

4 times this season he has thrown 40+ pass attempts and failed to get 200 passing yards.

No player has done it more than twice since 1950.

Legit think the Texans might be a better team without JJ Watt tho. As good as he is, you build your defence around him doing what he likes.

Vince Wilfork looks like he's done. Funny how there's a lot of talk about how good he's been fro 13 years (though on downward slope this season), but I've heard nothing about HOF. To be he should be in the running, as he was an unsung hero for the Pats and to some degree the Texans. You don't hear a lot of talk about run stuffing NT's, but any DC will tell you they are a god send. And what about him rumbling down the filed on that pick of Rivers?

I've seen a lot of people saying he's a lock. I am not entirely sure he's a lock for the HOF myself - a very good player yes, a truly great player? I'm not so sure. He's one of those who gets into the hall of very good

28-28.... shows the value of hanging on to the ropes and hoping you can find a way back in to the fight.

Green Bay will do well to win this now. Momentum all with Dallas. Going to be a great finish.
