Bears Coach John Fox Fired

All told, the Bears went 14-34 during Fox's three years at the helm. Fox helped create a much better culture in the locker room than what was left after Marc Trestman's two seasons, but that never resulted in actual victories. After hiring Ernie Accorsi to oversee the hiring process, the Bears hired pace over other candidates such as Dan Quinn and Doug Marrone.

Oakland Raiders want Gruden as coach

And the Raiders have made other attempts in other years at bringing back Gruden, who still is beloved in the San Francisco Bay Area. Gruden and Jack Del Rio actually share the same agent - talk about awkward - and there's a good chance Gruden doesn't want to talk about the job unless Del Rio is 100 percent out of the picture.

The squirrel can be seen scurrying out the door before bolting back in, much to the amusement of the residents and responding officers.

A loss? Well, then things get complicated. The Titans' nine-year playoff drought is over. The Jaguars' most recent championship had come in a division that doesn't even exist now - the AFC Central, won by Jacksonville in 1999.

Browns complete perfectly imperfect season, finish 0-16

To earn home-field advantage, they need to beat Cleveland and have New England lose to the New York Jets. Making the Browns' winless year arguably even worse than Detroit's in 2008 is the fact that Cleveland finished last season 1-15 following a 3-13 campaign in 2015. Read More »

Raiders to pursue Gruden as head coach, could offer ownership stake

perth_map

The idea that Gruden will flame out is as reckless as saying he's going suddenly make them into Super Bowl favorites. Add the fact that Gruden's former scheme is borderline Downing-esque and the Raiders have tried this before with Shell only for it to end in disaster - and fans have a right to be frightened by the notion of Chucky's return.
