I know this has already been talked about, but now it's on NFL.com. I tend to lend credibility to that site. I feel like we're coming out of a long and dark tunnel. Free at last!

I have this really foul taste in my mouth from all this .

I could see Benson bowing his back and going with his coaching puppet as the new head coach . Benson has not replaced half the front office that walked out yet . Hell , Benson might even try to validate the move with the new defensive rankings .

I am getting that Venturi feeling .......

I hate to agree with you, but I think you have a point.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit to see Benson build a loser and then use poor attendance to try and compel the league to let him move. He may not be able to get out of Louisiana, but he's going to see that we don't like watching the team play either?

Venturi is about the fastest way to achieve that end.
