    This sounds like a knee-jerk reaction by Chargers owner Dean Spanos especially after Marty got a vote of confidence a few days after losing to the Patriots in the playoffs.

    I heard a "kicking and screaming" Jerry Jones announce that he is holding a press conference tomorrow to see if he can have a "Mulligan"/do-over and unhire Wade Phillips and interview Marty for the Cowboys head coach position.

    Good luck Marty!!

    Marty was offered a 1 year extension with a buy out clause and he turned it down. Marty and Smith haven't been seeing eye to eye the past few years, so throw all that together plus the playoff losses and there ya go. With that being said it was **** poor timing.

    Well... I guess Marty and A.J. Smith had their final disagreement.

    ESPN said they disagreed on Marty's replacements for Cam Cameron and Wade Phillips... Spanos said when he decided to bring Marty back for another year it was with the thinking his coaching staff would remain intact.

    What took them so long to realize Marty is a loser?

    I say they are better off! This guy has proven time after time that he can find ways to lose with great teams! The only question that I have is if he was on that shaky of ground that his assistant coach hirings brought him down.....why did they retain him in the first place? Kinda dumb on managements part to wait until every other team has sorted through all the new head coach candidates and picked out the best ones before you get to choose! I mean c'mon you already missed your chance to grab Lane Kiffin!

    Just heard John Clayton on "Mike and Mike in the Morning" say that Marty also has a residence in North Carolina and will probably be playing lots of golf with Bill Cowher this upcoming year.

    He also went on to say that since these two both have coached in Cleveland that they will be on the Browns head coach radar after the '07 season.

    Schottenheimer returning to Cleveland? LMAO That will be the day, you watch the city of Cleveland throw a party like it is 1986 again when them two fools come back into this ungrateful hellhole. I am glad I am officially moving out of Cleveland later this year and moving to burb called Brooklyn, Ohio.

    Marty was just on Sportscenter and he said the relationship he had with GM A.J. Smith was so bad that they communicated through a third party... It had been that way for a few years.

    Way to suck AJ Smith. You got a guy who took over a terrible team and made it a consistant playoff contender, and you got him fired because he wasn't "your guy". I can't wait for the Chargers to miss the playoffs next year and for Spanos to fire Smith.
