The instant I heard Petrino was gone, I felt confident we would take a run at Cowher. The only question is whether he is truly happy in retirement in North Carolina. It's beautiful country, so he might be. If he misses the grind, we're a golden opportunity. He can get $10 million a year here and he can look like a hero to boot.

Bear in mind, this statement was completely baseless, but I think it does serve as an indicator of where Blank/McKay are looking. I think Cowher is unlikely primarily because of his repeated desire to be home for his kids through 2008, but I think it's indicative that early on in this process they're eyeballing a veteran coach and not some kid they think they can mold.

There aren't any openings because nobody else has a punk HC bolt a month before the season is over.

I'd say John Fox and Jack del Rio are the most likely to be gone, Fox because his team is ##### backwards and del Rio because his team has shown so much promise and has failed to produce (missing out on the playoffs might produce a Schottenheimer situation, they shouldn't fire him but they might anyway).

Actually, I'd take del Rio.

Everything Cowher said about not coaching was said a while ago and players/coaches like to talk about how much they miss the game once they're out. If he' serious about being there for his kids' sports games and stuff, there's no way he'll coach anywhere. If he's changed his mind in the last year, then who knows?

And, let's face it, at this point are any of us willing to believe anything these coaches say? Now I know Cowher is a big morality guy, but I'm totally beyond believing that any coach is absolutely unattainable anymore...living ones anyway, lol.

If for ANY reason Herm Edwards leaves KC I'd welcome him here in a heartbeat

Delrio or Fox wouldn't be "Bad" choices, but I don't think either would be the right choice.

I don't think we can Lure Cowher in. Singletary we should be able to

And I'm fine with him as well. but would take any of the proven Coaches above him
