wow! if this is true, im thinking he tore into mgmt for not only letting both coordinators getting away, but both in house replacements who left to cleveland and san fransisco. i would be pissed too.

he will have to compete with a commentator seat with cowher but wouldnt it be nice to see them both on espn countdown to bounce thoughts and ideas off eachother?

If this is true, I look for SD to slip back into the dulldrums of the football basement rankings once again just like Tampa Bay did after firing the only coach that brought them out of the bottom of the pool, the SB winner this year, Tony Dungy.

Marty was the best thing that happened to SD in a long time.

Or perhaps Marty in the commentator's seat discussing Coach Cowher's success as the leader of his former unit ?

Okay...San Diego may get my award for dumbest coaching moves,.....how do you steamroll through the biggest part of the season then lose your coach and both coordinators!!!

..and do it AFTER all the better prospects now have jobs!!!

Building a staff from scratch (and it will be from scratch) in mid-February is no easy trick.

I can't believed they fired Marty!! I thought San Diego had a pretty good chance of going far this year, but not any more without Marty!! He was such a classy guy!!
