Heading to the weekend

Couple NFL notes from a Friday:

Let the next wave of John Fox is leaving rumors begin, as ESPN's John Clayton is reporting the Seattle Seahawks are parting ways with Jim Mora, Jr . after one season at the helm. The Seahawks need to now hire a Head Coach and a G.M., so there will, no doubt, be speculation that Fox is a candidate to go there. We'll see. Read the story here.

The Panthers 2010 opponents are now known, and the schedule looks rather tame compared to the 2009 docket. According to ESPN's Pat Yasinskas and the ESPN Stats folks, Carolina's got the 26th toughest schedule for next season. You can get a look at how it all breaks down here.

Charlotte Bobcats 3-game win streak came to an end in New York on Thursday, but I still like the direction this team is heading. I do wonder, though, if they would be more effective with a backup power forward. Maybe it's just me, but since the departure of Raja Bell, Boris Diaw hasn't quite been the same. Now, I know he's been a little banged up, and Stephen Jackson's arrival has taken the ball out of Diaw's hands some, but why no backup? The Bobcats have a roster spot, with Alexis Ajinca in the NBDL, so how about it? There has to be SOME BODY out there that can contribute. Make it happen, this team can use all hands on deck, not be shorthanded.

That's about all I have for now. Have a great weekend!
