That's gay that they fired him. I guess being from pittsburgh and being a steeler fan - I'm used to some loyalty. I mean - there have only been 3 steelers coaches in my life time.

That timing is horrible. All of the good college jobs and a lot of the pro jobs are already gone.

I think the Jets job is still open and KC may come open. ST Louis may be picking Garrett the OC from Dallas, and who knows Dallas HC job may come open.

Well, plain and simple: the man sucks! He has been in Tampa 6 years and I have been waiting for this day for many seasons. The man took a great team (built by Dungy), won the SB his first season, and has gone mediocre ever since: 7-9 (2003), 5-11 (2004), 11-5 (2005, lost wild card game), 4-12 (2006), 7-9 (2007, lost wild card game), 9-7 (2008). The teams choke in good games. This year they had a firm grip on the NFC south, then lost their last 4 games... the last 2 at home to mediocre teams (Raiders, Chargers) to lose a spot in the playoffs. Believe me, I along with most of the people around here have been waiting for this for a while.

You can't always blame the coach.
