New, comments

Where's the line between making yourself available for a job and begging for one?

CHIP'S TRYING TOO HARDNFL owners think former Chip Kelly is begging for a job. It's not a flattering way to describe the former Eagles coach's attempt to stay in the NFL. It sounds like Mike Shanahan is begging for a job too, but you don't hear the old guard holding that against a man who hasn't won a playoff game since 1998.

CHARGERS CHANGES: Chargers keep Mike McCoy as head coach despite his worst season yet. Even after finishing 4-12, the Chargers will give Mike McCoy another opportunity in 2016. But they did fire offensive coordinator Frank Reich. The Chargers also fired five other coaches along with Reich. And the reasoning behind the moves just doesn't quite add up.
