Mayock has been given the title "Assistant to the Regional Manager" while Gruden drinks out of a coffee mug with the words "that's what she said!" on it.

Meanwhile Tom Cable spends every team meeting doing crosswords.

My money's on Terry Bradshaw.

FOX is ALL about cross-promotion of network properties. Bradshaw will be bounced from The Masked Singer on the show's January 16th episode, just in time for Menefee, Long, Strahan, Johnson, and Glazer to yuck it up over their studio-mate's antics during the FOX NFL Sunday pre-game show for the January 20th NFC Championship Game.

No need for 2 Broncos.  The Deer's almost certainly Elway.

The deer is Terry Bradshaw.  I heard a clue about something about being a rival to a Raven and the Steelers are rivals to Ravens.

Again, remember just a few short years ago, when the NFL disciplined players for simply attending a fantasy football event held at a casino?

Different, but similar. You know how college players can't get paid due to the spirit of amateurism, but they can wear PlayStation logos on their jerseys?

Hey, those logos are paying for their healthcare when they get hur... nevermind.

Browns gonna Brown, apparently.

 

From ProFootball Talk:

 



The Browns couldn’t pull off the comeback win in Baltimore on Sunday afternoon, but the second half of the 2018 season was still a big success in Cleveland.

Winning five of their final eight games left the Browns with a 7-8-1 record, which is their best since 2007 and something to build on for next season. That run came after the Browns fired Hue Jackson and installed Gregg Williams as their interim head coach, so there’s been some discussion about whether Williams will get a chance to continue in the job.

Williams is going to get an interview for the permanent job, but Peter King writes in Monday’s Football Morning in Americacolumn that “it doesn’t look like he’ll be a serious candidate” for the job.

King adds that a defensive-minded or special teams coach could be considered if it means offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens would stay on board, but adds that the team is expected to vet Josh McDaniels and Lincoln Riley as well. A report over the weekend indicated they have reached outto former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy and there will likely be more names bubbling up in the coming days.

Greggggggggggg shouldn't get the job. The lion's share of Cleveland's improvement over the last two months of the season is due to (a) not having a bumbling, incompetent fool as head coach who wouldn't stop arguing with his OC and (b) Freddie Kitchens' offense.

 

Gregg's done a lot good during his interim tenure, but he shouldn't be the answer permanently.

 

Now, Kitchens? That's a conversation worth having.

I really don't see why/how any team interviews Josh McDaniels after backing out of the Colts job especially after his assistants were under contract. I get it; McDaniels grew up in Akron/Canton and went to John Carroll, but he's got severe character flaws which were exhibited in Denver and last off-season.

Also, let’s not forget that he chased off Cutler, used a first-round pick on Knowshon Moreno when Denver was overstuffed with thousand yard rushers every year, the insane Tebow pick, turning a 6-0 start into an 8-8 season, and getting caught spying.

 

Denver was bad, but anybody can get a second chance. Backing out of Indy should have been that second chance for GM’s around the league. No way I’d hire him.

Elway was drafted by the then Baltimore Colts and (in)famously refused to play for them.  Deer also is holding a baseball trophy at one point-Elway played baseball in college and was good enough to get drafted in the 2nd round of the MLB Draft.

SBNation talked to the beat writers around the team during his tenure and all the comments are the same. He tried to be mini-Belichek and was a control freak.

I wondered about something the other day... if the Chargers managed to win the Super Bowl, would their championship celebration be the first of it's kind that nobody showed up for?

I also ain't got a clue.

 

Now, concerning McDaniels...someone correct me if I'm mistaken, but wasn't he supposedly tabbed heir apparent in Foxboro once Belichick steps down for good?

I honestly have no idea where they'd hold it.

 

I'm sure Dean would propose a parade in downtown LA which would be all sorts of hilarious for the attendance reason. In reality, it'd probably end up as a parking lot/stadium rally in Carson which would also be funny in its own way again for the attendance reason. This really would be the worst time for the Chargers to actually break through and do the damn thing.
