Today is arguably one of the most exciting days of the NFL season, especially if you have a mean streak and pull for a shitty, underperforming team. It's Black Monday!
Let's do a quick run down of the coaches and general managers who have already been fired:
And... (Pause for every single person in Philadelphia to pour flutes of champagne, make early toasts.)
Yes, the walrus's mustachioed reign of terror has finally come to an end in the City of Brotherly Love. No longer will we see the Eagles inexplicably lack any timeouts in the final two minutes of a close game; no longer will we see that scowling face on the sidelines, not talking for 30 to 40 minute stretches at a time. It's the end of an era.
Who hasn't been fired yet? Rex Ryan for one. Undoubtedly the tabloids will scream about that decision tomorrow, but it's really not a bad move: He's a good coach, and Tannenbaum was always a better candidate to fall on the sword for what happened this season. The Lions' Jim Schwartz also still hasn't been let go despite the 4-12 season. To me, that's the most surprising news of the day.
