Jack Del Rio is proof of what happens when you are married to an outdated offense.

You can't win.

When Del Rio was hired as coach, owner Wayne Weaver said, "No more three yards and a cloud of dust."

Only problem is that now they have a two-yards-and-punt offense.

Del Rio was fired Tuesday, and it's been a long time coming. His teams became an offenisve eyesore over the years. The offense this season is last in the league -- and it's not close.

Even though it was thought Del Rio had lost his edge, in the end it was the way Del Rio played offense that led to his downfall. He was run-centric in a league where you can't be.

Defensive coordiantor Mel Tucker becomes the team's interim coach, and he's a good coach. But this team has to get better on offense. It has to be built around the pass, like the other good teams.

Tucker will get consdieration for the top job, but I imagine the next coach will be an offensive guy.

The last nine years will tell you the reason why.

He's still available, but at this point, who would want him? David's old and has Crohn's disease. His career is O-V-E-R.
