I’m thinking that Sirianni is coming back also.  Met with the owner today and nothing announced.  Veterans like Kelce and Cox seem to have his back.

I still don't know what to make of Sirianni as of now, so as a Washington fan I'm not sure whether to be glad or nervous.

Bill Callahan had a similar implosion after a Super Bowl loss, but so did Bill Cowher and he built a pretty good career for himself thereafter.

Sirianni’s meeting with Lurie was postponed until tomorrow.  So still a bit up in the air.  It’s hard to say what really happened there.

As a Washington fan, I just want Vrabel before someone else grabs him

Eh, hard pass on Vrabel.  Everything about his time in Nashville just screams, "expect slightly better than mediocrity" to me.  He had the one year where he took them on a deep playoff run, but if one conference title game appearance in six years is impressive then you're relying on a standard that includes the likes of Norv Turner and Jim Mora Jr.

He over achieves with terrible rosters

If he was hampered with terrible rosters every year for six years, that tells me: a. maybe he was part of the problem and wasn't great at developing his own players, or b. it took him too long to realize that he was working with a front office full of slapdicks.  He could have gotten out around 2020-2022 and moved up to pretty much any gig he wanted.  Poor judgment on his part if he didn't when the Titans were just going to keep giving him scrubs.

Either way (and I could end up majorly eating these words), I just don't see him as the type of coach who's going to win a Super Bowl anytime soon.

I'm still most enthusiastic about Slowik, all joking aside.  When you look at his resume, there are a lot of pluses and not much to look down at.  The clincher is that he just worked so well with Stroud.

as long as Rodney Harrison, Devin McCourty, maybe other McCourty, and Tom Brady are doing network gigs (and Willlie McGinest was but for of field stuff), I think some network should grab him for a studio job. FWIW, he was thought to be the smartest guy in the defensive group for those early BB teams in terms of BB never being able to catch him not knowing every assignment and every key in a film.

Stroud is so cool out there. Too bad his guys are jumping offsides.

Stroud looks like Tom Brady in his prime slicing up the aggressive Jets defense. But his teammates on offense are not rising up to the moment.

I was going to say that but also he is not getting any protection.  The only touchdown they got was from his running.  They looked like they had been watching film of the Eagles the past few weeks on how to not pick up the blitz.

Took both the underdogs getting points yesterday.  Worked once.  Will take Detroit minus 6 and KC to win outright.  Can’t bet against Mahomes. Or Natsie.

the missed field goal didn't help, but that pass by Love at the end was about as bad as anything you'll ever see. No need to force a throw at that point.

Purdy was meh until the final drive, and he got them the win without Samuel.
