NFL Rumors: London, Bills, Colts, Eagles, & Giants


  • The loser of Sunday’s game between the Eagles and Giants will finish third in the NFC East and get the opportunity to play the Rams in London next year during Week 7.


Hall of Fame GM Bill Polian explains that he won’t be taking a formal role with the Bills as a consultant.

There was a question later on which related to consulting, and which I misunderstood.  The committee on which I serve, the NFL Personnel Development Committee, has members–Charley Casserly, Ron Wolf, Ernie Accorsi, who frequently serve as consultants to teams when they go through the hiring process,” Polian said. “And I made it clear that even though some teams have asked me to do that in the past, I can’t do it because of the terms of my ESPN contract.  That prohibits me from doing that.

Polian did say that he’s willing to speak with the Bills because he cares for the franchise.

If anybody asks, sure. If anyone has questions, I’m happy to answer and happy to help in any way I can. And that includes whatever I could do for the community.  I’m going to make a speech this spring in the community. Things I can do along those lines, I’m very happy to do. I want the Bills to do well. That’s the overarching message-I want the Bills to do well.”


  • Bob Kravitz of WTHR mentions that the more he learns about the Colts and their situation, the more convinced he is that HC Chuck Pagano wouldn’t remain with the team, even if they wanted him to return next year.


A long-time executive for an Eagles rival tells Mark Eckel of that Howie Roseman got to owner Jeffery Lurie and managed to push Chip Kelly out.

I can’t believe it,’‘ said the executive of Kelly’s firing. “They did what? Are you serious? No, you’re kidding right? You can’t be serious.

Howie got him,” the executive said. “He won. It took him some time, but he got to the owner, and he won. That’s just amazing. What is Lurie thinking? That place is just out of control.’

Beyond that, a person with knowledge of the infighting tells Eckel: “Howie has been poisoning Ed [Marynowitz]. And he has his people doing the same.

  • Les Bowen mentions that Bears OC Adam Gase is a name to keep an eye on for the Eagles’ head-coaching job.
  • Tom Pelissero mentions that Panthers DC Sean McDermott will likely be high on the Eagles’ list of head-coaching candidates.


Jordan Raanan of takes a look at the most realistic scenarios for the Giants and HC Tom Coughlin.

According to Raanan, the most likely scenario is that the Giants replace Coughlin as their head coach and hire someone from outside the organization.

Option No. 2, according to Raanan, would be to fire Coughlin and promote OC Ben McAdoo to head coach.

The third scenario would be to fire everyone and the fourth option would be keep everyone for another year.

  1. I don’t blame TC for this, I blame Reese for not drafting players that TC can work with. Reese let some very valuable free agent players.Some of these free agent players that were on the market could have saved this season and the first 1 that comes to mind is En-Dominic Sue.(spelled wrong) we very easily could of cut ties with JPP and had cap-space for Sue on the roster. This would of helped tremendously on defense. The Giants organization has always believed in second chances and with that being said we could of signed RB Ray Rice (or whatever his name was) cut ties with all the RB’s except for maybe Jennings and Darkwa. There are so many things I could mention it’s funny. Bottom line is Reese has to go. Reese has had 3 decent picks in the draft in the last 6 years, JPP,Beckham,Cruz. and that’s it. You might be able to make a case for Rubin Randle. More coaches that need to go are the Strengthening and Conditioning coaches. They have done a lousy job these last 4 or 5 years, 4 anyway.
    Keep TC because he’s done a heck of a job with the players he’s had to choose from.
    Mr. Mara, trust me when I say, Letting Coach Coughlin go would be a huge mistake.
