  1. I like Mike Nolan dating back to his days as a Giants DC, but he doesn’t even deserve an interview for a head coaching job. Failed pretty hard in San Francisco and his defenses the last few years with Atlanta have been pretty awful. Any team would be insane to hire him, so I fully expect the Browns to announce him as their head coach with full GM powers by the end of next week.

    Can you all post a Free Agent Prediction prediction thing when the free agent class officially comes out? I would love to do something like that, and I think other people would enjoy it too.
