Rumours that Coughlin is moving closer. Forgetting his history with the Giants etc. I don't see a 69yr old being a long term solution to creating stability!

The Coughlin bubble burst pretty quick!

I'm really not sure what direction the search is going in, there's a lot of media speculation going on and I'm pretty sure they're just as clueless as I am.

Congratulations to Doug Pederson. It'll be interesting to see who he keeps on, hopefully a large portion of the coaching staff, because Chip failed on culture not coaching.

Jim Schwartz brought in a DC. Not sure how I feel. He was a poor HC but good DC so hopefully he just concentrates solely on stopping the ball!

I actually liked Bill Davis so I really hope Jim does a good job, have to put full faith in Doug.

seems like Bradford is here to stay from what I was reading today. He will never be great but we could have worse.

Depends how much money he wants I'd say. I wouldn't break the bank for him!

I think Doug's surrounded himself with a really strong staff that can make the most out of what's on the roster now. Hopefully that means the rebuild won't be much more than an upgrade at certain positions.

I don't know if all this means Bradford stays, I hope he does. Maybe tag him, draft a mid-round guy and see how it plays out. I'm pretty sure he'd command tag-level money on the open market and I'm not convinced a long term deal is worth it just yet.

Bradford wanted 25 mil a year mid season, not a chance would you pay that.

should free up some cap room let go cooper and peters (even though it pains me to say it) he's constantly injured. he may be our best player the games he does play but right now that aint many.

we should take in the draft too, even if its third or 4th round. most current superbowl winners have drafted the QB
