    Seems kind of bad that the players didn't know until a press release...

    wow....this was totally a shocker, i thought i was going to get up tomorrow and tice would get a new contract for 4-5 more years, i don't like this move but a really good defensive minded coach would help us out

    I guess i'm not going to give an opinion about the whole deal until i see who they manage to find to take his place. It is interesting that they let him go so soon after a win especially.

    Re: TICE FIRED!

    I can't say I'm happy about how this was done. I'd even say it was classless to let him go right after a win like that. Maybe I'm overreacting, and maybe there was more to it than we know. Just seems to be a shame of a way to let a guy go after a winning season.

    Tice took over this team with really nothing to work with, and has remained the lowest paid coach in the league...and lacks the facilities and resources a lot of other teams have. But he gave us two winning seasons, including a playoff appearance and win. He brought in a lot of very talented players and overall I think did a fair job. Yeah, he may not be the best coach and he may have made some dumb mistakes, but give the guy some slack...he wasn't even an OC or DC.

    Anyway, I'll get over it, especially if we hire someone capable of building a playoff caliber team for years to come. It will take more than just a new head coach though. It will take a new OC and possibly new DC.

    Thats not what we need. We need an offensive coach with a good defensive cooridinator.

    Why drag it out and make a big drama out of it? I think he made his mind up after the Ravens loss. I think Tice probably knew as well.

    The players all love Tice, I hope we atleast keep him on the staff, maybe OC?

    You Onterrio Smith fans can forget about him coming back now since Tice was the only person who knew him as something other then the drug user and the whizzinator.

    This is the first of several parts of a housecleaning, I'm sure. Still, this is a dumb move. This man brought the team back from the brink of destruction, and this is the thanks he gets. Thanks, Zygi, good one!!
