    More than one source has indicated to PFW that the chances of Marty Schottenheimer returning to coach in San Diego beyond next season are at “less than 20 percent.” Some people consider the one-year extension offered to Schottenheimer for 2008 (which he declined) as a slap in the face of sorts, considering he has won 35 games in the last three years and the contract had a miniscule $1 million buyout option (compared to a $4.5 million base salary) if the team decided to go in another direction after next season. In essence, anything short of a Super Bowl title in ’07 will mean the end of Schottenheimer’s tenure in San Diego, and even that may not guarantee his return. Schottenheimer received plenty of support from his players, both publicly and privately, and general manager A.J. Smith sought some of their opinions to get a “pulse for the organization” and a “feel for morale.” Smith also spoke with his front-office personnel and several people around the league to gauge their thoughts on the progress of the franchise. It’s believed Schottenheimer, who at age 63 said he feels as good as ever, has no intention of retiring and would command significant attention on the open market a year from now if — or, more likely, when — it comes to that.

    Man those PFW guys are sharp. Did they just wake up from XMas?

    They are a bit slow on the draw. Almost all that stuff they could have cut and pasted out of many articles out there.
