    I wouldn't mind if he got fired.. this is where Jerry messed up

    Jason Garrett is a great offensive coordinator
    Wade Philips is a great defensive coordinator

    and that's where they should've stayed.. and he should've hired a legit head coach... he dropped the ball on getting harbaugh

    but every coordinator wants to be a head coach but we all know they're all not ready or capable

    Jimmy Johnson is the only one he got right and even that is arguable since it was the Walker trade that made those wins so possible. Johnson in Miami coaching the Dolphins? Which was the real Jimmy Johnson?

    dolphins weren't anything special and he turned them into the leagues best defense... so its not like he wasn't a great coach with greater hair but even Switzer pulled a Superbowl w that Dallas team

    at the end of the day if somehow Garrett pulls a championship out of this team all else will be forgotten... I don't know anyone that remembers belicheck coaching the browns.. they remember 3 superbowls in 5 appearances

    I don't think many remember Pete Carroll being a former NFL coach either.
    I wish Johnson would've chosen to coach Tampa Bay. A young team with a huge salary cap budget. That would've ensured his legacy had he built them up as well.
    Switzer is an example of the Walker trade. I could've won a ring coaching that team :)

    well its not like Pete did anything now or then lol... his notable moment is bringing a sub 500 team to the playoffs and winning a game

    That year there should have been a ruling "the nfc west will not have a champion or playoff representative this year due to no team being at 500 or above. Instead there will be another wild card team added from another division"
    I'm sure Packer fans will have a more recent memorable moment while Pete was coaching as well. ;)

    Question because Legatron missed a 66 yard attempt yesterday but only because it went wide. Did Dempsey kick his 63 yarder before or after the goal posts got moved back? I want to say it was when they were further forward but am not sure.

    i expected denver to have been closer score wise. I wonder if denver fans are wishing for teebow back even though peyton is a much better qb.

    Epic is an overused word, but not in this case. That comeback was epic:hail:

    I bet the Broncos are quite pleased with having dumped Tebow now.

    and if they lose in the first round of the playoffs or don't even make it? too early for any of that based off one great comeback but Peyton is a straight to the hall of fame kinda quarterback... a lot of teams are hurt he didn't go to their team lol

    Even if they don't they have a better chance of building a team around Peyton than Tebow.

    The Broncos made the postseason last year because they are in the AFC West. They beat a Steelers team with an injured Roethlisberger only after going to overtime. Then when faced with a real team in the Patriots they got embarrassed.

    Even if they go less than .500 they still have a future with Manning.
