Black Monday in NFL

December 29, 2008 |

If you are a head coach in the NFL, this is the day that if you are not taking your team to the playoffs you might dread,Brian Billick learned his fate a year ago as a NFL head coach.

Well the first big firing of Black Monday has fallen, as reports are out that Eric Mangini will be and has been fired by the New York Jets according to There will be a 10 a.m. press conference with the Jets.

Also Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, is reporting that Rod Marinelli of the Detroit Lions has been fired by the Lions.

If I am the Jets, I dip my toe into the Brian Billick water and just see what his interest in coaching is.

I am sure this is not the only openings that will come available today, and as more jobs open, I am sure the chance of Rex Ryan leaving increases.
