Chicago Tribune selections

Not sure what they are basing this on but the Chicago Tribune is reporting the following . . .

Mangini gets Jets job

Patriots defensive coordinator Eric Mangini accepted the Jets' offer to become their new head coach, ESPN.com reported. Mangini, who becomes the youngest head coach in the NFL at 34 (he turns 35 Thursday), and the Jets were finalizing the deal late Monday. An official announcement is expected Tuesday.

Front-runners for other open coaching slots:

Texansââ‚ ¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚¬?Gary Kubiak, Denver offensive coordinator.
Ramsâ₠�Kevin Linehan, Miami offensive coordinator.
Lionsâ₠¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚¬?Rod Marinelli, Tampa Bay assistant head coach and defensive line coach.
Billsâ₠¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚¬?Jim Haslett, fired New Orleans coach.
Saintsââ‚ ¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚¬?Maurice Carthon, Cleveland offensive coordinator.
Raidersâ₠¬Ã¢â‚¬?Jim Fassel, Baltimore offensive coordinator

Carthon would be another selection that would not give me heartburn as I consider other posts relative to Payton or Sherman as plausiable.

RE: Chicago Tribune selections

As much as I wanted Sherman, I would take Payton over Carthon any day of the week. Of the candidates interviewed, I think Carthon would be, by far, the worst hire we could make (which means Benson will probably hire him).

This report couldn't even get SCOTT Linehan's name right.
