Uh, yes, that's right.  And has anyone else ever seen a team get ushered into the playoffs like the Jets just were?  The Colts lie down and roll over in the second half last week, saving their stars for the playoffs.  Then the Bengals -- I didn't see much of this game, but by the score I have to assume they were going through the motions, content with not trying to raise their seed one place.  Without those two wins, the Jets are on the outside looking in.  There was already concern about teams heading into the playoffs not giving their all and producing substandard games.  This can only redouble those worries:  the Jets won a playoff berth by, basically, a quirk of the schedule.

Of course, it ends up being a trap for Gang Green.  From what I've heard (not fully confirmed), they'll be playing the Bengals again next weekend in the wild card round.  Cincinnati basically sat back, showing them nothing while knowing the Jets had to go all-out, throw the playbook at the Bengals, to insure that they got to play another week.  Cincinnati now has a massive tactical advantage, having seen most of what the Jets can do while having held much of their own playbook back.

Something is not quite right in the NFL.

Okay, several things are not quite right in the NFL.  This is one of them.

Yeah, the Jets did have a nice scheduling and team tactic flukes, but, they DID win the games to get in the playoffs.

I wonder if the Bengals will crush them or not?

And as Wes Welker gets carted off the field with a knee injury in a meaningless game in Houston, the Colts head coach just looks a little bit smarter....

True dat!!!

Without Welker, I think the Pats are done. He is so crucial to that offense. Baltimore will blanket Moss.

Yeah, I'm tired of seeing the Patriots in the playoffs.. Their decade has come and gone.

Yeah. Could be the Saints. Or perhaps the Vikings if Favre can keep playing until he's 45!

Pittsburgh could be considered a dynasty if they win one or two more in the next four years. Of course, there's always the Colts, but they do have to actually get to and win the big game more than once!

Now they are saying that Cowher probably will sit out this year too and wait for something better than Buffalo.   Could it be Carolina in 2011?

Glazer: Bills fire entire coaching staff

Updated Jan 4, 2010 8:43 PM EDT
The Buffalo Bills have commenced "Operation Cleaning House."

On Monday the Bills fired their entire coaching staff -- including interim head coach Perry Fewell. Fewell, however, is expected to officially interview Monday for the Bills' permanent head-coaching position.


The Bills released an awkwardly worded statement, saying members of the team's current coaching staff have been informed that their obligations for this season have been completed, and they now "have the opportunity to seek positions elsewhere." The release said their status will then be determined by the Bills' next head coach.

The team has already met with former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher and believes that his interest in the opening is genuine.

Buffalo is also making plans to interview several current assistant coaches to fill their head-coaching void. That list includes Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm and Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Other possibilities include Jets offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer and Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.

Days after firing head coach Dick Jauron in November, Bills owner Ralph Wilson had said no job was safe as he was preparing to revamp his entire front office once the season ended.

The overhaul already began last week, when national scout Buddy Nix was promoted to general manager, filling a spot that had been filled by the team's chief operating officer Russ Brandon, who had no football background.

The Bills closed their 50th season by missing the playoffs for a 10th straight year, and capping a decade in which they enjoyed only one winning season -- a 9-7 finish in 2004.

Fewell, the team's defensive coordinator, finished with a 3-4 record as the interim coach.

Except for highly respected special teams coordinator Bobby April, most of the Bills assistants, including Fewell, had been hired by Jauron.

News of the dismissals came a few hours after Fewell addressed his players in a final team meeting. Players were only made available to the media before the meeting, and discussed the uncertainty regarding the team as they cleaned out their lockers.

"I'm anxious to see what happens. I know coach Perry did a great job with us," linebacker Paul Posluszny said. "We all want to know what the situation is, who the head coach will be, what type of defense we're going to run. There's a lot of questions, but you have to stay patient."

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was frustrated after finishing another losing season, but was hopeful about the team's future.

"We come back here, it'll all be new. It'll be a fresh start," Williams said.

The new coach will have several personnel decisions to make, starting at quarterback.

Trent Edwards, who opened the season as starter, was benched after Jauron was fired. Ryan Fitzpatrick took over and failed to spark a sputtering offense, though he did go 5-4 in games he had a majority of playing time.

Defensive end Aaron Schobel is contemplating retirement after completing his ninth year in Buffalo.

Then there's receiver Terrell Owens, who becomes a free agent after completing a one-year, $6.5 million contract he signed with the Bills in March, days after being released by Dallas.

Owens, on Monday, reiterated that he hasn't ruled out returning to Buffalo, but only with the right coach, at the right price, and if the Bills are interested.

"I think anything is possible, and I think for myself, just be patient, wait things out and weigh my options," he said.

Though disappointed in the Bills' losing season, Owens expressed no regrets about signing with Buffalo.

"I took a chance on the opportunity that the Bills really, really wanted me ... and I just felt like I could fit in and be that added piece to get the team to the playoffs," Owens said. "I never envisioned none of the things that happened this year ... Those are some of the things that were definitely out of my control."

And then the 'after report'..

I'm curious as well to see IF the Panthers do well next season with Matt Moore at the helm, Will coach John Fox stay on after the 2010 season or will he be fired or actually leave on his own ???

My 'dream senario' would be for Fox to stay on but as a Defensive Coordinator, Bring in Bill Cowher as the head coach, and see if Jon Gruden could be brought on board as Offensive Coordinator.. :o
I know that Fox won't take a step down per se, nor would Gruden IMO but I believe those 3 great minds could mold the Panthers into the next great dynasty.. 8)
