  1. I’m glad they’re doing a real search and not just handing the job to Teryl Austin.

  2. Either Martindale or Graham Im good with either. Disappointing that Fangio is too proud to come coach under Tomlin because he runs a phenomenal 3-4

  3. I think they’ll hire Teryl Austin anyway, but they’re at least looking at what’s out there. They obviously know Martindale well. They need to bring in some fresh blood.

  4. They might as well bring in Hue Jackson to run the offense and Marvin Lewis to run the defense. I mean if were shooting for pure mediocrity we might as well complete the trifecta with coach Trippy.
