A little football, a little basketball, and some bodily function humor. Happy New Year.

This one, I don't get. Lovie Smith was 10-6 this year. Did the team fall apart in the second half of the season? Yes. Two straight years? Yes. Was the team hit by roughly a zillion injuries the last two Novembers? Yes. Did the Bears ever stop playing hard, or did they not give their all to win in the final week of the season with the playoffs on the line? Nope. Maybe the Bears higher-ups need to be looking at the training staff, not the head coach.

Link to come. We look forward to the Bills hiring another head coach that nobody else was thinking about hiring. Perhaps they would like to completely turn things over, and also fire Buddy Nix and replace him with a GM that nobody else was thinking about hiring?

It will be interesting to see who the Jets can get as general manager who a) won't be able to pick his own coach and b) will have to deal with a meddling owner who many people think dictated the Tim Tebow trade. However, put me in the category of people who think Rex Ryan can succeed as an NFL head coach. He already has, hasn't he? Two AFC Championship games counts as "success." He just needs someone to handle the offensive side. But he seems to have the motivational thing pretty down pat.

Not a surprise. There have been a litany of bad draft choices in Jacksonville, and even worse, a number of players who the Jaguars could have had much later in the draft, starting with Tyson Alualu and ending with the decision to take punter Bryan Anger in the third round when some guy named Russell Wilson was still on the board. Don't forget the atrocious free-agent contracts, either. Cardinals director of player personnel Jason Licht and 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble are the apparent top candidates.

Multiple reports out of Philadelphia indicate Andy Reid will be fired as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, with it likely becoming official Monday. Reid was the NFL's longest-tenured head coach, having joined the Eagles before the 1999 season. He's reportedly indicated he'd like to coach in 2013, and even without a Super Bowl ring he'll probably be a hot name around the league as other vacancies come open.

Lane Johnson and D.J. Fluker were selected high in the draft, but both have troubling flaws in pass protection according to Word of Muth.
