If al davis were an eskimo he would be viewed as no longer contributing to the well-being of the group and instead of sucking the life from the group "the fans" he would consequently be taken out to sea, and set adrift on a floating iceberg.

And Kiffin impressed me this year, admittedly after thinking it wasn't a good hire last season. I like Kiffin, if I were the Redskins I would consider picking him up. Then again, does Kiffin want to immediately work for another meddlesome and idiotic owner/front office?
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
Honestly, I would hire Kiffin as the OC for the Giants. I actually really like him a lot and think he brings a very upbeat personality to the team. I also like that he is very good working with QBs and think he did a good job with Jordan this year.

I like Kiffin a lot, he has the team going in the right direction IMO. This years 4-12 team was leaps and bounds better than last years 2-14 team even though there was only a 2 win difference. Kiff brought in Tom Cable to fix the OL and we finished around 6th in the league in rushing with guys like Jordan, Fargas, and Rhodes (who would all be backups on most NFL teams) and we gave up around 30 fewer sacks (72 in 2006 to 41 in 2007). And now after all this Al wants him gone? Al is really, really starting to piss me off with all this BS.
Anyways, I think Al firing him is much more likely than Kiffin resigning because if he quits he doesn't get the $4 million remaining in his contract. Kiffin would have to be crazy to pass up that money. I'm still holding on to that tiny thread of hope that Kiffin sticks around because I think he's a good coach.
this puzzles me. While I am a division rival of the raiders and wouldn't mind seeing them struggle a little more, I have come to like Kiffen. I can't speak with perfect confidence because I admit I have only seen the 2 games the we played them, but throughout the year i was keen on following them because i was interested in the unexpected production at running back among other things. I watch alot of jet games, and often times i'd just wonder how they were so bad (record wise) because i felt they were a good team, and to be honest i'd apply that tag to the raiders too. I especially enjoyed Kiffens management of Russell late in the year, It was unfortunate for the organization that he got there so late. In particular i liked how kiffen would bring jamarcus in only on some possessions. I thought about that and felt it was beneficial for the player to get into the game, but be able to digest what hes doing, make mid game changes and try it again. Too often Rookies play the whole game and make weekly changes to their game so the way kiffen approached the situation peeked my interest.
Although despite all that, I feel i understand why Al would try to oust his coach. It seems that while kiffen brought new life to the offesne, the defense struggled. Al didnt get rid of the coordinator probably because he feels defense is the key to winning and the best way to deal with teh scenario is to get rid of the weak link whom he thinks is kiffen. However, I dont particularly understand why Al would hire someone to be the youngest coach ever, (i think) and right out of college, and let him go the next year. I mean, what did he expect? he hired an offensive coach, and the offense got better.. There must be more to the situation that has not come out yet, because the information at hand does not add up.
What an idiot. Doesn't he realize that if he gets rid of coachs each year good candidates won't want to take the job. Or it might make it more attractive as a coach would only have to work 1 year to get 3-4 years worth of salaries.
"We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."
Most people do. There are usually about 5-6 people that turn the job down, some without any other options.
Sean Payton did.
The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''
