    He might be alright for the next 2 seasons, but when we have to play the AFC East again.... He wont survive to come back from Miami. People in south Florida want the guy's head on a platter.

    Nick Saban is a former Oiler guy himself.

    Long story short, I could get behind Saban. If he came here he would be one of the top guys on my list.

    His first pro job was DB coach for the Oilers in '88 and '89. He left to become head coach at Toledo.

    I honestly continued to believe Pete Carroll was an idiot until this season.

    But I was actually a lot higher on the Seahawks before the season began than most were. I had them at 9-7 due to that defense and run game. Had no idea Wilson would be this good... and a lot of people were saying Carroll was a moron for naming Wilson the starter after signing Flynn.

    Fail Mary or not... They'd still have made the playoffs - assuming they can beat Fisher in Seattle on Sunday. Should be a gimme.

    I wish they would've won the division and got homefield advantage because I don't see ANY team beating them in Seattle with the way they're playing right now.

    I've never liked Carroll, but one thing I've always liked is his energy on the field.

    And as others have said, he's a perfect example of someone who initially failed in the NFL and returned to have success. It looks like he will be coaching in Seattle for a long time.

    I think people are overly critical of Carroll's previous NFL experience. He was only given one season with the Jets and they were in the playoff mix until Dan Marino beat them with the fake spike. He made the playoffs 2 of 3 seasons with the Patriots and never had a losing season.

    Carroll is an idiot and they'll go out in the first round this year.

    But he has turned that team around.

    Saban is a great coach only in college football though he can't motivate professional athletes!
