    The Tennessee Titans were reportedly willing to offer more money to Ken Whisenhunt than the Detroit Lions.

    ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky reports the Titans offered Whisenhunt, the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator, $1 million more per year to be their head coach. He doesn’t say if that was the determining factor for Whisenhunt, who also reportedly was at odds with using a 4-3 defense in Detroit and saw less cap flexibility there than in Tennessee.

    Furthermore, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports the Titans also offered more personnel control for Whisenhunt.

    They should have hired Al Borges as head coach.

    Well, I got some right on, some wrong, some close. Almost had a 49er -Bronco final.

    Lions should've won the division.

    Falcons... Wtf?

    Eagles over Cowboys :)

    Always fun to look back.

    Not necessarily true. Have you forgotten about Wayne Fontes, Bobby Ross, and Darrel Rogers?

    As Lions coaches continue to get hired around the league, it makes you wonder where the real problem was...

    Not sure they actually need to play that game. They could just announce the lineups and that would be sufficient.

    So I guess you didn't see how they did it this year ? J.Rice and D. Sanders picked the teams.

    That's the dumbest idea possible. Rice and Sanders don't need their egos inflated anymore. Plus, you've got guys taking shots at their own teammates. Let's just stick with AFC vs. NFC if they are going to keep playing the game.

    No. I found out about it when I learned Foles was MVP (FWIW). I watched a Pro Bowl couple of years ago for the first time in probably...actually, I'm not certain I ever watched one before. I loved it when a defensive lineman accidentally stumbled through a block and ended up near the quarterback. He stopped dead in his tracks. It was pretty funny. I enjoyed the game. It was no more fake than watching the Sheik wrestle Andre the Giant.


    I thought the draft was a fun idea. But now that you bring up those points...
