Forbes? 

Not exactly cutting edge sports journalism?

Considering there are only 32 NFL head coaching jobs available, my guess is plenty of people.

This team is not in the same place it was the last time it was looking for a head coach.  It has been successful most of the past several years, and is loaded with talent.

The article just spews the same annual speculation of ML getting fired. Or did I miss something?

I know a lot of us were clamoring for Mike Zimmer but the Vikings imploded this year and there was talk

of a mutiny by the Vikings CB's in yesterday's game.  I know they had some OL injuries but still.

Pretty much.  Shotgun journalism - print a bunch of "rumors" and hope some of it hits.  If you're right it's a big scoop and if not it's forgotten.

Forbes is a weird source, though.

And Peterson and their QB.

LB coach Jim Haslet.  Part of/familiar with the organization (beholding to the Browns for a job), head coaching experience (although sucky).  Won't upset the apple cart and no changes to the MikeandKatie Brown noser coordinators.

And I agree with everyone and hope I'm wrong.

Yep although I don't think they would have performed any better at QB with Bridgewater than what they did with

Bradford.  btw the friggin stoolers won.  :glare:

I think they would have been at least a little better.  Bridgewater knew the offense better, and I think he's a better QB.

Agree Jason..I hope if this is true Vance Joseph gets hired!!

Dolphins defense is 30th in the league.  Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

Possibly.  They definitely would have been better with Peterson in there regardless of who was qb'ing.

I refuse to get my hopes up about this because as soon as I do, Marv will probably get an extension. Would be quite the Christmas miracle though!

Edit:  30th in the league in yards allowed.  My bad.  19th in points per game.

What about Jim Bob Cooter from the Lions?  Might be worth it just for his name alone!  lol

Couldn't think of a better way to this ass-fucj of a year, but it ain't happenin.'  I'd love to see it just to shit can alexander (although the ne Browns next pick will probably such an inbred one that they'll keep).

 

I'm probably the only one, but every time Mr. Marvins speaks anymore, all I hear is:

 

Didn't do our jobs, mkay.  Losin's bad, mkay.  Gotta do our jobs, mkay.  Jobs are important, mkay.

Forbes is not wrong.   There were rumors from a  consistent source at the last home game.  There will be promotions from within but the head coaching position is being offered outside the organization.   Take it for what it's worth but knowing the source,  I consider it reliable.   Not sure how Forbes got ahold of the story but it's been out there for a while.

If HC is an outside hire but they intend to promote from within (God help us), that would have to mean some other coaches are getting fired, too.
