Grimm and Whiz will both get interviews in Arizona, but only after Pete Carroll definitely says he is not interested.

Assuming Coughlin survives, any HC openings other than Arizona, Atlanta, and Pittsburgh anticipated? I think Saban stays - the Alabama job is toxic.

I think it's BS that Green got the axe...I mean, it's the front office you never got him a legitmate offensive line. I bet E. James is pissed he didn't stay in Indy. He cost himself a Hall of Fame career.

i think the dolphins and saban have a press conference schedules at 4:00 est (in about 10 min) to address the situation. edit: just heard part of the press conference and saban didnt even mention the alabama issue.

you gotta think shottenheimer has saved his job and s. mcnair definitely save billicks job.

art shell seems to be on the ropes and i dont think snyder would think twice about firing gibbs if someone big like cowher were suddenly available and willing.

theres a tiny chance the dallas job is open. nobody really knows what parcells is gonna do.

i cant see the bucs firing gruden after what they paid to get him and with marvin lewis returning the bungles to a consistant 8-8 team, hes got a job for life!

I do not think even Snyder wants the PR firestorm that would result from firing Gibbs and Gibbs says he is coming back. If Gibbs were canned the Redskins job would turn into what the Dallas job was in the mid to late 1990s - a job top candidates would run from.

I forgot about Oakland, but that job is career suicide until Al Davis dies; I assume someone would take that only after every other vacancy was filled and maybe not even then (as was the case with Whiz).

I do not think Marty is safe yet - if he loses in the first round he may be axed.

As much as I would like to see Art Shell go, I don't think he is going anywhere.

As far as your career suicide comment... believe me, there are more than a few Raider fans that agree with you, myself included. As far as Whiz turning down the Raider job... depends on who you believe. Whiz says he took his name out of the hat... Al says he never offered him the job. Regardless of how it really went down, it's a moot point.

Poor Dennis Green and he had THE press conference of the year following the Bears game. The owners of Arizona, Detroit, and Atlanta never seem to realize that turning a losing franchise around is not done by some magic pill or a big name HC. It takes time and it takes loyalty to how the HC wants to do things. Oakland is different, Al Davis is just an idiot and a laughing stock for some of the best fans of any professional sports team.

There had been some completely unsubstantiated rumors that Holmgren might consider the Arizona job if it became available. He just finished the first year of a 3 year contract with the Hawks. The contract is written so he can leave for another NFL job only if it is for a Head coach/GM job. I don't know if the Cardinals would consider that or not. I think the only reason for that rumor is that Holmgren has a winter house down in AZ.
