Buccaneers And Lions Looking For New Coaches

Tampa Bay and Detroit thought 2013 would be a season of promised, but for both head coaches that was not the case. Both teams let go of there head coaches on Black Monday in the NFL. Greg Schiano made alot of enemies in Tampa Bay and it was no real surprise that he got the boot in Tampa. Many players did not like him, so it really was a no-brainer.

Detroit on the other hand never reach the expectationbs they had for the upcoming season. Many people thought they would win there division, but instead struggled all year long. Jim Schwartz was expected to do great things in 2013, but it never came together for him. Both teams now will start there search for a new head coach.


Cowboys Miss Playoffs Again Not Romo's Fault This Time

For the last few years everyone wanted to jump on Tony Romo for failing to get the Cowboys to the playoffs. This season the Cowboys again had a chance at the playoffs only to see a late interception end there chances for the post-season. Kyle Orton played in place of Tony Romo who had back surgery and was unable to play for the Cowboys.

Kyle Orton did not play bad, but the interception killed him at the end. You cannot put this all on Orton as he did not have a hand in the other Cowboy losses. The bottom line is the Dallas Cowboys should have never been in this position in the first place. If they would have take care of business like they should they would have already clinched a playoff berth.

Many questions now surround the Dallas Cowboys and there coach Jason Garrett. Will Garrett be back as Cowboys coach. It's hard to say as you never know with Jerry Jones. Either way something must change as the Dallas Cowboys cannot continue to miss the playoffs.




Mike Shanahan And Leslie Frazier Given The Boot As Coaches

You knew that Black Monday was coming after some of the teams struggle all season long. The Washington Redskins said goodbye to Mike Shanahan after a 3-13 season and the Minnesota Vikings said goodbye to Leslie Frazier as well. Both coaches struggled to get there teams to play well this season. Minnesota and Washington along with Cleveland are looking for new coaches.

 There could be a few other teams that fire there coaches as well. I think Tampa Bay and Jacksonville could be two teams that may pull the trigger. Both of these teams struggled this season as well. No matter what happens we will see some new faces in new places this upcoming NFL season. Winning is what you must do and when it does not happen usually the coach must go.

Cleveland Browns Fans Deserve Better

Well another season is coming to a close in Cleveland and the Browns again missed the playoffs. Now this comes as no surprise to anyone, but Browns Fans Deserve much better then what they are getting. Cleveland is probably poised to fire there coach and bring in another retread and continue the same old losing Browns fans are use to.

 When will the losing stop for Cleveland Browns Fans?  I'm afraid it will not stop anytime soon. Cleveland needs a quarterback that has some  talent and some players to help him out. The Browns have a few good player's, but overall they need a lot of help. Cleveland does have a number of draft picks that should help them rebuild.

 Winning will never start unless they hire a coach with a proven track record. You need a voice in the locker room that players trust and believe in. Until that happens the Browns will continue to lose. Brown's fan's deserve better and let's hope the front office realizes it one day soon.










Rex Ryan Will Continue As Jets Coach Despite The Teams Struggles

Rex Ryan must have nine lives as he will continue as the New York Jets head coach. I will be honest I thought Ryan was going to get fired win or lose today, but he did not. Ryan did get the Jets to play better down the stretch and his team always plays hard. I think that had something to do with him staying as Jets head coach.

Now that the Jets have decided on a coach what are they going to do at quarterback. Is keeping Geno Smith a goood option? Many times he struggled during the season, but he is young. The Jets have many questions in the off-season to answer if they want to be competitive in 2014.

The one thing that they do not have to worry about is finding a coach. I think Rex Ryan needs to go deep in playoffs to keep his job next season. I hope the Jets do not keep him if he struggles again next season.

Tom Brady One Special Quarterback

Tom Brady was drafted and not a lot was expected from him. He sure have proved the experts wrong coming out of Michigan. Brady has developed into one of the best quarterbacks ever. He continues to impress people with his ability to win games in the clutch.

One of the most amazing things about Brady to me is his ability to make the players around him better. In recent years, he has not had the best set of wide receivers to throw from. Yes, he has had one or two good ones, but for the most part no household names except Welker recently. Brady still finds ways to win ball games and that is the mark of greatest. 

Love him or hate him you must give Tom Brady his due he is a winner. When it comes to clutch players he is one of the best in the game and one of the best ever. No one would have guessed this when he came out of Michigan in college. You just never know where your next superstar will come from.

Miami Heat Still Prove They Are At Top Of Their Game

The Miami Heat know that the Indiana Pacers are looking to take over the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but Miami is not ready to give it up just yet. Lebron James and Dwayne Wade held the Heat together as they were able to beat the Indiana Pacers at home.

For the Pacers they built a lead only to see it vanish in the fourth quarter. Indiana must learn how to close out games on the road. Right now they have not mastered that and it cost them on Miami. Later on the season this loss could come back to haunt them, but we will have to wait and see.

Did Mack Brown And Texas Make The Right Decision?

Texas and Mack Brown have decided to part ways with Brown resigning from his head coaching duties. According to Mack Brown he thought long and hard about it before making this decision. Is this the right move for Texas? The Texas Longhorn fan base is use to playing for titles and the last few years that just has not been the case. Brown has had a few down years, but he also had outside forces who wanted him out making it tougher. If you want to win you must have everyone on board and Brown did not. Where does this leave the Texas program at?

The Longhorns need to bring in a guy that has a big name and can recruit players. Texas is one of the best jobs in college football and needs someone that understands this from the start. He also needs to be able to handle the pressure and media as well, as both will be a constant with Texas Longhorn football.

Winning will cure all that ails the Longhorn program. Getting the right person as coach is the key. Taking time to find the right individual is very important. If they do not they could be looking for a new coach again in a few years.

Is Ohio State's BCS Spot Safe With A Win?

The Ohio State Buckeyes got some help when the Auburn Tigers beat the Alabama Crimson Tide. The real questiuon will be is can the Buckeyes hold onto the No.2 spot. Unless they lose they should be okay unless something unlikely happens. The SEC has a powerful voice and will lobby hrd for the Auburn Tigers if they beat Missouri in the SEC Championship game. Auburn has only one chance to unseat the Buckeyes without a loss and that would be to get a push in the polls. They would need to take the second spot in one of the polls. That might give them enough to jump the Buckeyes for the BCS spot. I just do not see Auburn changing enough minds to get it done. You never know though as we are talking about the BCS and anything ca happen. If Ohio State wins and still does not make it to the Championship game some outcry will follow.
