    I hope he gets one of the HC jobs. I'm over the hurt.

    I thought I read on here he would never have a chance to be a HC in the NFL again...

    It's that time of year...when agents feed stories to reporters. Let's see what happens before people start taking victory laps.

    It's his dream job.


    Seriously though, I do wish him the best.

    The Saints are not a good job right now

    Any NFL HC gig is a good one for someone like Marrone, IMHO. I doubt that most teams with openings regard him as a home run hire, but he could end up with a spot somewhere when the music stops. More than I ever thought he would get at this point.

    Doug Marrone in LA would be awful.

    New Orleans would be great for him. Or the Titans if they were dumb enough to do something.

    It's just one day after the season but if I had to guess...(and this will change in the coming days for me)

    49ers--Josh McDaniels
    LA--Kyle Shannhan
    Jax--Tom Coughlin
    Denver--Vance Joseph
    Buffalo--Anthony Lynn
    San Diego--Mike Smith


    If the Saints trade Sean Payton then obviously I see Doug landing there.

    Marrone should've waited out Cantor and Gross.

    Everyone is waiting on the Indy job. IF the Indy job comes open (which it probably will) it becomes #1 on every one of these candidates wish list because they have a franchise QB in place.

    The Indy job also brings in the other big name candidates not mentioned so far (Harbaugh, Saban, Urban, Gruden, Cowher...etc). Because it's the one job where you can go in and win in Year 1 and win big within a couple years very quickly.

    I tend to agree though I wonder how much luck, Luck has left in the tank.

    Also the D will need immediate addressing and you need to find a back to help shoulder some of the load.

    I don't see Cowher getting back into coaching at this point. I'm not sure I see Gruden going back either.

    Taking a team with a franchise QB from 8 wins to 10 wins can happen overnight. Then you are off to the races. Any new head coach and GM in Indy should spend 1 draft on nothing but o-linemen and d-linemen. In that division you will probably win it in year 1 or be fighting for a wild card spot at worse.

    Colts are loaded with WR's and skill position talent, they just have no beef up front. The Phillip Dorsett pick in Rd 1 two years ago was one of the worst draft picks in a long time. The Trent Richardson trade also was a waste of a 1st round pick. If the new HC/GM just draft linemen (either side of the ball) and spend any cap space more linemen and linebackers that team can and will be good overnight. It's the best job in the NFL if it comes open which it probably will

    I don't either, but if there was a job they would consider it would have to involve a franchise QB which would probably have them sit and meet with Indy if Indy came calling. That's a job you think about for a minute and not just blow off the phone call.

    For a guy that's aging he lead the league in yards and finished third in touchdowns.

    New Orleans finished with 469 points in the regular season.

    Only the Falcons scored more.
