It seems that the HC spots are gone. Maybe an OC in Philly?

Or retire to a rocking chair.

Do the Rams still need a DC?

That OK. He can always hire someone from the Toronto Argonauts as his defensive coordinator.

Good question. In his press conference he said he expects a few of them to make the trip south.

Rumor has it that Marinelli will work with Monte Kiffin in Dallas.

Marinelli did a great job working within the confines of Lovie's Tampa 2 schemes. I hope he has success in Dallas... he'll be missed in Chicago.
