    Who blocks interviews?? Pretty weak on Elway’s part. Beta.

    I'm guessing he will end up as OC of Denver, where he apparently wants to stay anyway. But otherwise, pretty weak.

    Not as bad as USC blocking Kliff Kingsbury from interviewing for NFL head coaching jobs, though.

    Matt LeFleur hired as Packers HC. Biggest whiff of Quinn’s tenure. He should have been promoted to replace Shanahan.

    Edit: AJC reporting the Falcons offered Koetter; ööööing morons.

    I'm fine with Koetter. Falcons had one of the better offenses in the league in 2012, even with a weak defense and Mike Smith's conservative style of doing things. He's not on the same level as Shanahan, but he's a clear upgrade over Sark.

    My guess is that Ryan gave approval for Koetter. He probably liked working with him previously
