  1. Hiring the former GM of the Jags doesn’t sound exciting when you realize they’ve been one of the worst teams in the league. But who knows.

  2. The NFL is a very small community… and that’s bad in cases like this. Once you’ve somehow gotten a job at a certain level it’s basically guaranteed you’ll keep getting jobs no matter how bad you’ve proven to be. How any sane person can look at the Jags over the past few years and think “the guy in charge of that really knew what he was doing” is a mystery of all time.

  3. How do these terrible GMs get rehired? These guys are terrible, yet they get more jobs.
    There must be other competent people available.

  4. I bet Caldwell (coming in) will be a high-fiving-on-camera machine compared to Tom Donahoe (on his way out?).

    More years of misery coming for Eagles fans. Caldwell is awful.

    I put it squarely on Shad Con. I’m certain Caldwell wasn’t making many of those decisions. Remember, they were 1 possession away the Superbowl. And then they began unloading players like Shad Con unloads home games to London. I’m sure the GM didn’t hire Tom Coughlin either.

    Another person for Howie to ignore. Great.

    Or a potential replacement!
