    Yes, the obvious happened.

    Ziggy Wylf has fired Coach Chilly. Breaking news on KTLK that he has been relieved of all coaching duties and Leslie Fraiser has been installed as interim head coach.

    Now the question remains, will Favre be benched, or released?

    I've been hearing on the local media essentially there has been a locker room revolt ever since Moss was brought in and then released in almost subsequent weeks. Players publicly questioning the capability of Chilly for on and off field decisions.

    The season may turn around yet. LOL

    Good!

    Now they just need to release Favre and swap T Jack with Webb as the replacement so he can get warmed up for next year. Just as long as they don't win too many games the rest of this year so we can get a good draft pick.

    They traded their best QB to the Giants.

    Amazing!

    First female head coach in the NFL.

    Today should be a day of pride for all women and effeminate men.

    Yeah they've been dissecting it on Paul Allen. I won't be surprised if T Jack starts a few games the rest of this season, and if he does play it's basically an interview for next year. Webb is two or three years away from being competitive at this level... so maybe put him on the field a few series this year just to see his progress, but he won't be better starter material than T Jack this season or next.

    My hope is that Jackson learned some valuable stuff from Favre, and can translate that knowledge into performance. Learning first hand from one of the greatest QBs of all time is an advantage that no other young QB in the league has right now.

    I would rather see Favre finish his career on the sidelines, passing his knowledge onto a QB of a younger generation, than to get beat up and fall apart on the field throwing embarrassing interceptions; statistically, I'm pretty sure Favre is the worst QB in the league right now. There's more dignity in coaching and helping from the sidelines at this point.

    3 years ago, on the texans, he lit up defenses like nobody's business when Shaub went down. It was a great move to get him, then stupid to release him.

    Thanks for the memories Chilly!

    He had to go, but in some ways, its a shame. He did a very good job assembling a quality team. I don't think he had any major free agent busts and generally drafted pretty well. Maybe he should be a GM.
