    Your point is well taken (However, I remember a very vocal Carroll Rosenbloom). True, Goergia never said anything. Now I don't mean any disrespect for the deceased owner, but she always seemed more a figurehead to me. She loved the spotlight and left any real decision making to her football guys.
    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

    Mok, there's not really a bull market for players cut from the last place team to be picked up on a first place team.

    If I change the oil on my Pinto, you're not going to use it in your Porsche. Know what I mean?

    Bingo, truth! That's my point exactly. As I questioned last week......might Chip be his father's son?

    Besides getting rid of the coaches and the defense, Bulger needs to go to. He's finished.

    I suppose hope springs eternal. We should know, in pretty short order, if Chip is his father's son, or just trying to put his finger in an ever widening hole in the dam. I'd love him to be the former rather than the latter.

    True, but if you've got a *****in' sound system, high dollar wheels and tires, etc. I might part it out. I'd be curious to see who among the players would be cut in this scenario. If some backup gunner on the special teams is cut, it's a b.s. threat. If Bulger is cut, the threat is real but I'd be willing to be that New England would give him a look.

    The players who are actually worthy of starting won't be threatened by this edict because Holt, Bulger, Jackson, Pace, etc. will quickly find a new home. Players who aren't worthy of starting, won't matter if they're cut because they're already not worth starting. Firing Linehan will solve 100% of nothing. If Schottenheimer or Cowher come in, they might make a change but only if they're allowed to do things their way. If they're given that autonomy, then it's unfair to previous coaches who've had to deal with the craptastic front office that's caused all of these problems in the first place. If Chip really thinks the players and coaches are the problem, then he's a part of the problem.

    Of course not! We're talking about players in leadership and/or starter roles who have no business being there..........Corey Chavous, Dante Hall, Tye Hill, Nick Leckey, etc.
    Firing Linehan will solve 100% of nothing.
    Firing Linehan alone will do nothing.....I agree.
    If Schottenheimer or Cowher come in, they might make a change but only if they're allowed to do things their way.
    If Marty Schottenheimer or Bill Cowher is the next coach, I'll kiss your big white Kurt Warner lovin' Bakersfield butt!
    If they're given that autonomy, then it's unfair to previous coaches who've had to deal with the craptastic front office that's caused all of these problems in the first place.
    Who gives a rat's sphincter about fair? Surely we're both all for whatever change brings about success, yea?
    If Chip really thinks the players and coaches are the problem, then he's a part of the problem.
    And there Mok, is the big question. Does Chip see Shaw (and as a by-product, Zygmunt) the same way his mother did OR like his dad probably would have at this point?

    The answer to that one may dictate the direction of this team until the sale goes through.
