And so it went.

I do think it's worth noting that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said repeatedly, when taking up defense of Wade Phillips, that he regretted pulling the plug on Gailey after two years, as the 1990s dynasty crumbled. And Gailey has been around good teams, having coached with Super Bowl staffs in Denver and Pittsburgh.

But is this scaring anyone in the AFC East? Probably not.

Part of it is that Jim Harbaugh, Bill Cowher and Mike Shanahan reportedly turned down the job, and Brian Schottenheimer, Russ Grimm and Ron Rivera were said to have turned down interviews. Yet, that's not all of it ... The hire of Gailey doesn't seem all that different than the hire of Dick Jauron a few years back.

So, yeah, there's not a whole lot of spice to his hire. We'll see how it works out.
