Cowher Hints at Faster Decision on Status

In his Tuesday press conference, Bill Cowher said he will discuss his future coaching plans next week. Now that the postseason is no longer an issue, the talk among fans and media is who will replace Cowher if he chooses to retire. There has also been some discussion locally that the Steelers' job is one of the most sought after in professional sports and I wonder if outside observers agree. And if so, does that put previously thought untouchable coaches in play for the position? Assuming, of course, Cowher actually calls it quits.

Coughlin Demotes Offensive Coordinator

As I told Mike Tanier after reading his most recent FOX Blog entry, "The Worst Coach of 2006", he may want to give Tom Coughlin more consideration. The Giants' head coach has stripped offensive coordinator John Hufnagel of his play-calling responsibilities before the final game of the season, though he says he's been pondering the move for weeks.

Halfway Out the Vikings Door

So Much Favre Love You'll Blow Your Head Off

If the whole point of the flex scheduling was to allow NBC to show meaningful matchups late in the season, why on earth did they choose Green Bay-Chicago as the final prime time game of the season? What, Brett Favre again? By this point, most people seem to think he's not retiring, so this actually isn't his final game, and I can't imagine that many people across the country care about watching Brett Favre play the Chicago backups (except for maybe us Adrian Peterson acolytes). There's an excellent chance that Green Bay will be out of the playoff hunt before this game starts.
