Can Chan, Can Chan.

The buffalo Bills should fire every player, every coach, and every worker in the front offices as well. Heck, they should fire the owner as well. Ralph Wilson is the worst owner in the league.

Jets fans are suckers.
Ryan should have been fired with prejudice.

May very well be. But they become the Los Angeles Bills fifteen minutes after his eulogy is delivered.

I’d like to see Jason Garrett gone. He can take Romo with him. Better yet, can we tar and feather Jones outta Texas? He’s been a blight on Texas for 20-some years.

"I’d like to see Jason Garrett gone. He can take Romo with him. "

I'm starting to like Jason. Think of what he would look like in drag. And what better sight for sore eyes than Romo dragging his carcass off the field in a slump of doom.

Nah, keep all those guys.

Yesterday, we yawned through yet another Browns loss, and most of the people in the room were more interested in the Vikings vs. Packers. My wife is from Minnesota, and there are a few other ties. It appears that some Browns fans have given up, and there are some of us adopting other teams.

So, today they’ll fire their coach, and hire another idiot. And screw up some more good draft choices.

Eff the Cleveland Browns. The whole bunch of them. I’m in my 50s and I doubt I’ll ever witness them in the playoffs.

“Pioli should be going out the door with Crennel.”

Romeo seems to be a very nice man, who has no business being a head coach in the NFL. When I saw that Crennel was the coach, and Quinn was the QB for KC yesterday... well, here in Cleveland, we lived that nightmare.

Let me say I am not, repeat not a Cowboy fan, but always respected the team and some players( Staubach, Aikman, Dorsett, the Doomsday D), until Arkansas Jerry took over. I read the back story of how they treated Tom Landry. Anytime that team loses is a good day. They are all thugs and degenerates. Sadly, I read that Romo is actually a good-hearted guy on and off the field and a sportsman. He is just in over his head.

That said, Jerry will keep Romo and cut the coaches. Amazing that a franchise QB that consistently chokes on the big game is kept. Deja vu of Fran Tarkenton, albeit Tark was a gunslinger, Romo is at best a journeyman QB. IMO.

I made a comment in a similar thread Thanksgiving Day that Jason Garrett should probably use that following free Sunday to update his resume.

Apparently, many Cowboys supporters think it is time for shaking out, including the QB.

Remember the Saints, Started with 18 losing seasons, 21 head coaches, and no winning seasons. Owner sells the team to Benson, and a winning season the first year.
Yes owner and management can be the biggest problem. Look at the Jags management, and the new owner choose to stick with the GM, coach, and the assistants. Bad move. Good news is he is cleaning house starting today. Things must get better.

The new owner of the Jaguars, Shahid Khan, is a Pakistani muzzie. Jacksonville fans should boycott the team until this despicable member of an evil death cult is gone. The house cleaning needs to start at the top for that organization.

I am getting tired of people who never indicated, or showed, any respect towards Tom Landry, to keep bringing this up when talking about Jerry Jones. I never recalled any one in the media or the non-Dallas fanbase who said any thing nice about Tom Landry until he was fired, never.

Tom Landry and Jerry Jones resolved this and Tom Landry “forgave” Jones for this long ago, before Landry died.

It’s like these liberals who say that it was wrong for people to trash Bush after Bush left office, who now say conservatives should not talk bad about Obama.

To Detroit Lions’ fans Ralph Wilson seems like the Vince Lombardi of owners...you want to see bad ownership...try William Clay Ford.

Ford bought the Lie-downs in 1963...since that time they have won ONE playoff game. Yeah...ONE!

I’d trade you Ford for Wilson in a heartbeat.

Jax is a horrible city for an NFL franchise. It’s a huge Navy town where many people aren’t native Florida people. The city is so spread out geographically, and more people care about UF and FSU than the Jags. The Jags have been covering up seats for years so the game isn’t a home blackout.

Speaking of bowl games, the names are getting ridiculous: Against Hunger Bowl, for example.

There used to be 5 major bowls — Orange, Sugar, Rose, Cotton, Fiesta.

Now, there are some 2-3 dozen spread out for 3-4 weeks.

As a Texan and growing up in DFW I always had good things to say about him and that era’s players. The press may not have had Landry’s back but most fans did but they reacted much like today’s voter. I was anxious every time one of my teams had to play them because I knew they found ways to win and spoiled many a team’s season.

Landry forgave Jones not because he deserved it but because Landry was a good man and put them team’s future ahead of his and knew the bitterness would harm him as well. Mark of a true God fearing man.

Heck, they should fire the owner as well. Ralph Wilson is the worst owner in the league.
A few years ago, Ralph Wilson couldn't get any company to pay for stadium naming rights, so he went to Albany and threatened to move the team.
Those political SOBs gave him $200 million in taxpayer dollars and, in gratitude to the NY taxpayers, multi-millionaire Wilson, named the stadium after himself.
Last week, Ralph Wilson was given another $95 million in taxpayer dollars. I wish the entire greedy Wilson family, the greedy staff and the greedy millionaire players a horrible 2013.

You biased bast####.

Guilty as charged. Yes, I'm biased against mooselimbs, the murderous cult founded by a pedophile. Yes, I'm biased against Satan's followers who killed thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11 and continue to murder our American soldiers in the Middle East. And yes, I'm biased against Islam, the false religion that seeks to destroy Israel.

Did you read his bio, did you see him on 60 minutes.

Shahid Khan is a muzzie. That's all I need to know. Until and unless he renounces that evil cult, repents and becomes a genuine Christian (or Jew), he remains in the enemy camp. As for "60 Minutes", I refuse to watch anything masquerading as news on that commie network. Their heritage is Eddie Murrow, Walt Cronkite and Danny Rather, all of whom are in the category of American hating Marxists. And the current Scotty Pelley continues the CBS tradition of liberal liars manufacturing vile propaganda in the guise of news.

“The real Cleveland Browns are in Baltimore...if I were you I’d follow them.”

That would be like electing Benedict Arnold as president. Cleveland fans have nothing to cheer for, so they often take delight in teams they hate experiencing failure as well. I can change to cheering for the Vikings, but my two other favorite teams are whoever is playing Baltimore, or Pittsburgh.

I won’t blame individuals when the Cowboy’s losses have been team losses. The Redskins team outplayed the Cowboy team. Romo’s interception was the result of incredible play by the Redskins’ defenses - from the pass rush to the coverage of the receiver to the pressure to score that made that throw necessary. If the Cowboy’s defense were better, that throw would not have been necessary. Good defensive players were outplayed by the Redskin’s offense.

That’s football. The NFL has 32 teams. By the end of the season all but one will be complaining about their players and coaches.

The name of the game is entertainment. This year, the Cowboys have been VERY entertaining. That’s what sells tickets, advertising, beer, nachos, cars, big screen televisions and such. And that’s what keeps people writing and talking about “their” teams.

After working in sports for over thirty years, I have a different take on the games than others. Enjoy the playoffs!

Art Modell is dead...maybe it’s time to move on?

In any case the Browns, at least, have a new owner...he’s got to be an upgrade...across the Lake in Detroit, people are really suffering...fifty years of William Clay Ford, well known ex-alcoholic, scion of the Ford family...pushed off by them to play with his football toy...of course, he wrecked it many years ago.

What a miserable, miserable franchise! And fifty years in...no one can tell Billy anything about running an NFL franchise. Russ Thomas, Matt Millen, and now Mayhew and Schwartz...all incompetent.

Why oh why do people continue to buy tickets to the Lie-downs, Browns, Bills, Chiefs, and Jets???? Why?

The list I see so far:

Crennel out in KC; GM may also be gone.
Reid gone in Philadelphia.
Ryan kept by the Jets; GM let go.
Shurmur and GM both out in Cleveland.
Jacksonville replacing GM and letting them decide on the coach.

(FOX Sports)
