Report: Lofton Next Raiders Coach

James Lofton is apparently discussing terms to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders. The article notes the Raiders to be the Chargers' "most-hated rival", which is odd. I thought their most-hated rival was celebratory dancing.

Offense Still Billick's Call

Ten minutes. That's how long it took for the "Fire Brian Billick" talk to start following Saturday's loss to the Colts. Well, Billick's not going anywhere and yesterday he announced quarterbacks coach Rick Neuheisel will be the offensive coordinator next season. Except that Billick will still the call the plays. Not sure how that works, but Billick did add this: "[A]t the end of the day, quite frankly, I enjoyed [play-calling]. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed myself that much." As part of his new job title, Neuheisel will get to run the offensive meetings and help devise game plans.

NFL Network to Rebroadcast Classic Super Bowls

Pretty cool here. The NFL owns the rights to all broadcasts of the Super Bowl, no matter which network does the broadcast. They're finally going to show these broadcasts in their entirety, rather than limited to 30-minute highlight films. For the most part they chose good, close games. You've already missed Super Bowl XL, but here's the remaining schedule. Be aware that most of these are getting broadcast a second time in late night, so check the TV listings.

Super Bowl XXXII, DEN-GB, today, 4pm EST
Super Bowl XXII, WAS-DEN, tonight, 9pm EST
Super Bowl XXXVI, STL-NE, Jan. 18, 8pm EST
