    Del Rio knows his days are numbered.

    DEL RIO KNOWS HIS DAYS ARE NUMBERED

    While watching the last half hour of Caddyshack on ESPN Classic and perusing the web for anything of significance that we've missed over the weekend, we tripped across a nugget buried in a Friday article from Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News.

    Here's the relevant entry:
    "Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio has expressed interest in the Cowboys' vacant coaching job.
    But he doesn't appear to be a serious candidate.
    Del Rio still has 2 years left on his deal in Jacksonville, and Jones hasn't asked the Jags for permission to talk to him."

    Wow.

    Translation?
    Del Rio knows his butt is in hot water come 2007, and that he most likely will be fired if he can't get the Jags back to the postseason.

    And our guess is that news of his interest in the Dallas job won't help to increase Del Rio's job security.
    When his name surfaced two years ago as a potential replacement for Nick Saban at LSU, we heard that owner Wayne Weaver wasn't pleased with the perception that Del Rio was injecting his name into the mix.
    With Del Rio now in danger of getting fired come January 2008, we frankly wouldn't be shocked if there's a change made within the next couple of weeks.

    We're not saying it's going to happen.
    But if it did it wouldn't shock us.

    If Chilly has a bad a year as he did last year and at the end of the 2007 season Wilf makes a change and Del Rio is let go would you ant him for the Viking's next head coach?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Maybe. I don't want another rookie coach. No ifs ands or buts. I'd take a Del Rio or someone else who was recently fired before I invest in another "hot upcoming coach name".

    How ironic would it be if we got Jack Del Rio to be our coach in 2008 and he hired Mike Tice to be the offensive coordinator? LOL

    DEL RIO DENIES INTEREST IN DALLAS JOB

    In response to reports that he has expressed interest in the Dallas Cowboys' head-coaching position, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio denies that he wants the job.

    "I have no interest and I've expressed no interest," Del Rio told Vic Ketchman of Jaguars.com.
    "We have a strong roster, I have a very supportive owner and my family loves it here in Jacksonville."

    Yeah.
    Sure.
    Okay.
    "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."

    The difference here, of course, is that Del Rio can truthfully state he's not interested because, by all appearances, the Cowboys aren't interested in him.
    If they were, an effort would have been made to secure permission to interview him, or to acquire his services via some type of trade.

    Meanwhile, 1.76 million gallons of water in the Dallas area were very happy to hear the news that Del Rio is staying in Florida.
