The "Fire Andy!" chants are in the air in Philadelphia, where Eagles Coach Andy Reid is watching a once-promising NFL season crumble. In San Diego, where the Chargers have lost six in a row, Coach Norv Turner's job looks more tenuous by the week. Jim Caldwell is unlikely to survive the free fall of the Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville could soon be missing its Jack, as Del Rio is running out of answers. It's likely there will be changes at the top next season in Miami, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City and San Diego.

The road back to football notoriety will be a long one, but at least the University of Louisville is cruising up the on-ramp. Second-year coach Howard Schnellenberger said that the team's prospects are better than they were a year ago, but the Cardinals are not ready to achieve the goal he set for them--a top spot in the polls and a national title.

" Case in point: During an offensive meeting this week, one of the Bengals had the nerve to chomp on a mouthful of ice as Gruden was making a point.
