Hopefully, this will be the change NFL fans in northern Florida have been looking for.  According to Adam Schefter, the Jaguars plan to hire Doug Marrone as head coach.  Marrone served as the interim head coach after Gus Bradley was fired.

The history of interim coaches getting the job for good says no. He's just another retread, and you can't even say that he's been apprenticing with some great mind after his last head coaching job (one of the reasons why Lane Kiffin got back in the head coaching market despite his constant failures) and might come back better for the experience since he's been the O-line coach to Bradley the last two years.

It's a long day livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

I'll say this, the Jaguars played a lot better under Marrone than they did with Bradley.  Two games, though, shouldn't be enough to make this big of a decision.

Team underperforms, coach gets fired, team plays better, interim guy gets job, team goes back to sucking. It's a very familiar cycle and when they beat the Titans in week 16, I even said "watch, they're going to play just well enough down the stretch to convince the front office to give the job to Marrone full time, and then win 4 games next year."

I has hoping this wouldn't happen, but it was inevitable, so thanks for the memories.  Michigan Wolverines linebacker Jabrill Peppers declared for the 2017 NFL draft.  The expected first-round pick finished fifth in Heisman voting.

I feel like this will be a great fit to turn around a beleaguered franchise.  According to Dan Graziano and CBS Sports, the Bills hired Sean McDermott as head coach.  McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator for the past six seasons.

Those of you who know Butch know he's thinking this should've happened 13 months ago.  According to Adam Schefter, the Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that the team will relocate to Los Angeles from San Diego.

Let's see if youth can outweigh a severe lack of experience.  The Rams hired Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay, who is 30, as head coach.  He became the youngest head coach in NFL history.

Mother Nature can be such a bitch.  Sunday's Steelers vs. Chiefs divisional playoff game in Kansas City, Mo., was moved to 8:20 p.m. from 1:05 p.m. due to expected weather.

If that was it for the Dirty Birds in the Georgia Dome, what a way to go out.  The Falcons defeated the Seahawks, 36-20, in the NFC divisional round.  The Falcons' Matt Ryan had 338 yards and three touchdowns and Devonta Freeman had 125 yards and a touchdown.

And the massacre is already in progress as the Patriots are up 14-3 near the end of the first. I doubt. Brady will play the second half if this continues. 

Well, that's why they play the games. Houston is roaring back to make it Patriots 14, Texans 13! Stay tuned, we may have a great game here!

And at half-time the Patriots, finally taking Houston seriously, are back up 17-13!

Again looking one sided as near the end of the third the Pats are now up 24-13!

Yep, I was right my first post, massacre! 31-16 in favor of the Patriots.

34-16 with seconds left. Asshat commishioner is pissed off with his hatred and jealousy of Brady!

Let's not forget this is history as it's the Patriots' sixth straight trip to the AFC title game (Jan. 22 in Foxborough, Mass.), which is a new record.  Don't forget the individual work as Dion Lewis had three touchdowns and Tom Brady had two touchdowns.
