If you're like me, you're wondering what the defensive linemen think about having their popular coach fired. Well, Osi Umenyiora has issued a statement of sorts -- he swapped emails with the Associated Press -- and played it pretty close to the vest.

"I am extremely saddened by it," Umenyiora said. "He is a great coach and we have a special relationship. I'm sure he will be OK though because there should be very high demand for a coach of his caliber."

Of course, ultimately the players will likely feel a mix of anger and guilt. Had their production been a little better, Waufle and others who are sure to be shown the door in the coming days would probably still be around.

But Osi is correct that Waufle will likely find a job and soon. Hey, he might even wind up in St. Louis with Spags! He could have a chance to mold Ndomukong Suh there.
