Just a heads up here. We're getting a conference call with defensive coordinator Perry Fewell around mid-day, so we'll have the fruits of that call as soon as possible.
Not much news otherwise. Unless Coughlin makes a surprise firing of, oh, say, a particular special teams coach, it looks like the rest of the staff from last season will return intact. Of course, there's still that lingering question in Oakland as it relates to offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride's potential to succeed Tom Cable out there. But Cable is still employed, and opinions now lean toward Al Davis keeping his current head coach.
You never know with old Al, though.
Oh, and before anyone trashes new defensive line coach Robert Nunn over a horrible single season in Tampa Bay, as one commenter did this morning, remember the whole body of work with Green Bay, Washington, and Miami. It's not bad. A guy's track record has to count for something.
