Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 15, 2018

Despite leading the Tennessee Titans to a playoff win for the first time in 14 years, head coach Mike Mularkey is departing. Did he get fired or quit? It's unclear. Owner Amy Adams Strunk says they "saw different paths to achieve greater success." The 56-year-old Mularkey went 20-21 in three seasons and back-to-back 9-7 records over two full seasons, beating the Kansas City Chiefs in a road upset during the first round of this year's playoffs.

Parity is making a laughingstock of the NFL. This particular coach may or may not have needed to be fired, but in general it's often the case that they are scapegoats for oblivious ownership and petty NFL policies put in place to make teams more equal; more apt to be profitable in their marketplace, rather than to better the game itself.

You're gonna greet eaten up for this comment.

Mularkey was not a good coach, which as a Texans fan I'm sorry to see him go. I was hoping that a playoff appearance would give him another year there. 😊

It's hard to get respect with a name like Mularkey.

Mularkey out? That's Baloney. But I hear they are hiring Shenanigans.

make teams more equal

Sure. That's why the Patriots may win third SB in four years.

They are an exception... but dynasties don't make the entire NFL profitable, so they think.

Looks like the NE offensive coordinator might be headed their way. He was looking to go to Indy but with their whack job coach and the Tenn opening I would think he would be be calling Tenn. ASAP.

Here's the thing I have seen time and again in the Sports... Certain coaches are good at certain things and very few are good all around. You may have a coach that can build a team into a playoff team but not cross that last hurdle and get them in the championship or make them champions. So you replace them with someone who is good at doing that but is not necessarily good at rebuilding a team.

On another note here's a case of ownership blowing it. I personally think Kraft blew it by taking Brady over Belichick in the fight over Jimmy Garoppolo's future. Brady is nearly done - sorry but no matter how much he works he can't keep it up for that much longer. I get the loyalty but it doesn't make business sense.
