Mike Tice, Mike Martz, Mike Sherman, and Don Capers shouldn't have answered the phone this morning. As expected, they were all fired. There's not much to add in criticizing these coaches; their poor coaching has been discussed for years. I just want to add that Mike Sherman had no business being in the NFL after choking away the playoffs a few years ago. I'll miss the comedy of Tice and Martz, but since the NFL loves to recycle failure coaches, we're sure to see them again soon.
Then there's Drew Brees. Going into the weekend his team was already out of the playoffs. He just needed to get through one more game, and then he'd have a good rest from the rigors of the NFL. Then he gets a torn labrum (which Red Sox fans know way too much about). Enjoy an offseason of surgery and rehab, Drew!
