NBC Denver reports the Broncos are interested in ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo for their opening at QBs coach.
They are reportedly also interested in ex-Bengals OC Ken Zampese. The Broncos have an opening after QBs coach Bill Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator in November. They announced Tuesday that Musgrave would remain offensive coordinator for 2018. McAdoo was Aaron Rodgers' quarterbacks coach in Green Bay before arriving in New York. He did poor work with Eli Manning and the Giants' offense.

I don't agree with him, but he's saying that Matt Stafford is a "coach killer"--a QB too good to get rid of but not good enough to win anything significant. So he's saying letting that guy not only keep the franchise mired in mediocrity but also letting him dictate the coaching staff isn't a good idea.I've read this about ten times and don't know what it means. What are you trying to say?
ESPN's Josh Weinfuss reports the Cardinals will interview Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong for their head-coaching vacancy.
Teams are seeming more open to special teams coordinators this hiring season, but Armstrong will still be an extreme long shot to replace Bruce Arians. His interview will take place following the Falcons' Wild Card game this weekend.

Ohhhh...I see it now. Thanks.I don't agree with him, but he's saying that Matt Stafford is a "coach killer"--a QB too good to get rid of but not good enough to win anything significant. So he's saying letting that guy not only keep the franchise mired in mediocrity but also letting him dictate the coaching staff isn't a good idea.
*Again, I don't agree with him. Just my interpretation of what he's saying.
They are frequently behind early because of the poor play of their “franchise” QB. Why put any stock into what he says about coaching?? IMO he’s a coach killer, great talent but will get coaches fired because it seems like it’s the coaches fault when often it’s truly hisI've read this about ten times and don't know what it means. What are you trying to say?
After being a disaster in Denver he wants a plum job.McDaniels has been in no rush to leave New England in recent years, barely granting interviews and making it clear he will only take a plum job.
The strangest part about the Lewis situation the last month has been how badly Schefter whiffed on everything he reported. In hindsight, he was dead wrong all along. When does that ever happen?https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/948315989975945216
Marvin extended for the bengals...crap
Camp Lewis used him to their own ends. Same as back in '11.The strangest part about the Lewis situation the last month has been how badly Schefter whiffed on everything he reported. In hindsight, he was dead wrong all along. When does that ever happen?
This seems like the case. Schefter sure isn’t getting any leaks from Mike Brown.Camp Lewis used him to their own ends. Same as back in '11.

Pittsburgh police say Haley’s wife, Christine, who was involved in what they termed a minor scuffle at Tequila Cowboy restaurant and bar on North Shore Drive, a block from Heinz Field.
The scuffle quickly ended and, according to the police, Haley was not involved.
The New York Post reports Alabama coach Nick Saban is not interested in the Giants' head-coaching vacancy.
The seemingly-annual Giants/Saban rumors began percolating earlier Tuesday. The pairing cannot be completely ruled out, but it's clearly not the most likely outcome in East Rutherford.

Do you really need a behind the scenes story to explain why a guy would prefer the (hometown) Giants over the Lions?Now Patricia being rumored to NYG. Can’t wait to hear the story behind the scenes if true. Lions gonna Lion I guess.
I read the article and gave my take on it. Your selective quoting leaves out the reason to doubt the police report. I'll bold that reason.Did you even read the article or are you just trying to tarnish the guy?
The police were not honest about Haley's injury, so there's no reason to believe they were honest about his "noninvolvement".Pittsburgh police say Haley’s wife, Christine, was involved in what they termed a minor scuffle at Tequila Cowboy restaurant and bar on North Shore Drive, a block from Heinz Field.
The scuffle quickly ended and, according to the police, Haley was not involved. They also said he was not injured, but a statement by the Steelers said the coach had an unspecified injury after falling down and a source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette his hip was injured.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are expected to hire Patriots DC Matt Patricia as their next head coach.
Patrica had been considered the front-runner to replace Ben McAdoo in East Rutherford, but now it looks like he'll end up in the Motor City, where he'll be reunited with former Patriots scout and current Lions GM Bob Quinn. The 43-year-old has served on Bill Belichick's staff since 2004 including the last six years as New England's defensive coordinator. The Lions won't be able to officially introduce Patricia until the Patriots conclude their postseason run. With the Colts and Giants pursuing OC Josh McDaniels and LBs coach Brian Flores a finalist for the head job in Arizona, New England's coaching staff could look vastly different in 2018.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Patriots OC Josh McDaniels is the "clear favorite" to replace Chuck Pagano as the Colts' next head coach.
McDaniels is also a finalist for the Giants' head-coaching vacancy, though it looks like he's leaning toward joining Andrew Luck in Indianapolis. The 41-year-old didn't have much success in his first head-coaching stint with Denver from 2009-10, but McDaniels has been widely considered among the league's top coordinators throughout his tenure in Foxboro and deserves another chance to lead his own team. The Colts will have to wait for the Patriots to finish their season before hiring McDaniels. Texans DC Mike Vrabel is the other finalist for the head job in Indy.

I think Quinn is a excellent coach, rat face shanny jr leaving was a big issue, not sure why he went with sarkisian. I'm sure he is back another season thoughATL should fire the entire coaching staff they just can't win with that regime. please ATL , get rid of these idiots
and please NYG do NOT hire Patricia as HC..not one single coach who left BB's regime in NE ever amounted to a hill of beans as a HC elsewhere..learn from other teams' mistakes..do NOT follow suit, do NOT hire him as your HC..that would be worse than keeping the slick headed McAdont in town.
As I said in the Giants thread, not sure where I stand on this hire - guess it's a pretty "Giants" type guy - professional, not some young whiz kid, has paid his dues... I do like his QB bonafides seeing as we will soon be grooming the next QB after Eli, but I am a bit enamoured with McDaniels now that he has already had his first taste as a HC. Plenty fine letting Patricia go, because he has not.
He's had 14 years without a single playoff win. How long should a team wait before searching for a new leader?Ok with Lewis staying. OL started to jell and Mixon was coming around. Don't #### with Mixon's carries though. Will they be any better? No but Mixon will get his.
They should most certainly fire him but since I own Mixon and he was coming on at the end of the year, I don't want them messing with the O. I think the OC is back.He's had 14 years without a single playoff win. How long should a team wait before searching for a new leader?
They should but I have gotten the sense that they won't.Mike Mularkey's stubbornness, failure to scheme around Marcus Mariota were his demise
Good riddance to a load of Mularkey?
Rams OC Matt LaFleur will interview for the Titans' head-coaching vacancy on Thursday.
LaFleur just wrapped up his first season as offensive coordinator after coaching the Falcons' QBs under OC Kyle Shanahan the previous two seasons. 38-year-old LaFleur is an outside-the-box name but one that is certainly worthy of consideration after what the Rams were able to do offensively under Sean McVay. LaFleur may not be ready for the jump, but many thought the same of McVay. LaFleur has learned under some of the brightest offensive minds in the sport.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests there's a real possibility the Steelers move on from OC Todd Haley.
Haley does not have a contract for 2018, and his relationship with Ben Roethlisberger became increasingly fractured in 2017. One Steelers source told the Post-Gazette that one of the reasons Big Ben openly contemplated retirement was his failing rapport with Haley. The two "rarely talked along the sidelines," and "never huddled to discuss strategy" during games. Roethlisberger reportedly requested QBs coach Randy Fichtner to come down from the booth to create a game-day "buffer" between the quarterback and Pittsburgh's OC. Fichtner is reportedly a "strong candidate" to replace Haley if he isn't re-signed.

The Titans will interview Panthers DC Steve Wilks for their head-coaching job.
Wilks has drawn interest from the Giants, Cardinals, and Colts, although he forewent an interview with Indy because he believed they were more committed to hiring an offensive-minded coach, which appears correct with the Josh McDaniels marriage all but consummated. At very least, the Titans would satisfy the Rooney Rule by interviewing Wilks. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora says Wilks landing with the Cardinals is also a "real possibility."
