    Brady will be 41 next season. The heir apparent now plays for the 49ers.

    I am saying this with the disclosed bias that I hate the gumps and really hate the success that little prick has brought them.

    That being said I can see both sides here, on the one hand yea he has pretty much a spot in the top 4 every year. Even if he should be the there he will pretty much have a spot. I wouldn't say anyone would get "tired" of winning NCs but one would wonder he has got to be thinking where is my next challenge? The picture I get of saban is of someone who does not like to be second best. Yes he will go down as one of if not the best college coach of all time.......... (sorry had to throw up) but I think his failure in the NFL has got to be gnawing on him. "I mean pete carrol did it in college and has had success in the NFL and I can't" I can picture him thinking. The other aspect is I think we are getting to the ceiling of what college coaches are going to get paid. Which is freaking stupid as it is. Could you see Kraft offering $aban an opportunity like Gruden just got? I dont see the gumps matching 100 million dollars over the course of 10 years.

    I dont see him leaving but it can't hurt to start a novena about it right?

    Saban can leave anytime he wants or get more money from Bama anytime he wants because, as Finebaum once said, there are more teeth in the front row of general Neyland stadium than there is in Saban's contract with Alabama.

    Aren't they already used to that in New England? Might be the best fit for him anywhere.

    Finebaum said it when he was with Al.com. It was so funny I remembered it.

    after Grudens contract imagine how much belichick could make on the open market if he left. Let's say for the giants. Blank check, full autonomy.

    Why anyone in the NFL would take a flyer with nick is about as dumb as someone hiring a disastrous ole miss retread. Of course nick isn't an idiot so there's that. Maybe he can improve his ways. I just don't see it worth the risk. Maybe he can steal Oeaux for his dl coach.

    So you ask me that question even though you knew the basis for my prediction.

    Awesome.
