Contract talks between Marty Schottenheimer's agent and the San Diego Chargers hit a snag yesterday, the day both sides had hoped to reach a deal for the veteran coach to take over the struggling team. Schottenheimer's agent, Tom Condon, left meetings with Chargers officials in Mobile, Ala., for his scheduled return to Kansas City yesterday afternoon. He said he planned to continue to negotiate with the Chargers by phone. Condon wouldn't discuss specifics, and Chargers general manager John Butler wasn't immediately available for comment.

John Fox came to the Carolina Panthers with a good reputation and a great recommendation. Following a 1-15 season and the firing of George Seifert, the Panthers yesterday hired Fox as their new coach, hoping the New York Giants defensive coordinator can pump energy into the team. Fox, never a head coach at any level, got a glowing review from Wellington Mara. The Giants owner reminded Panthers owner Jerry Richardson he also had recommended Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry for head-coaching jobs during their careers.

Here are 10 things you may not have known about the Carolina Panthers, the Eagles' opponent in Sunday's NFC championship game: 1. Quarterback Jake Delhomme was Kurt Warner's backup with the 1998 Amsterdam Admirals in NFL Europe. "I needed a job," Delhomme said. "I had just gotten married. " 2. Saturday's 29-23 double-overtime victory over the Rams was Carolina's first road playoff win ever. 3. Thirteen Carolina games have been decided by six points or fewer this season.

Jake Delhomme last week called surgery on his strained right elbow "a last resort. " After experiencing pain trying to throw yesterday, the Carolina Panthers quarterback decided the worst-case scenario couldn't be avoided. Delhomme, 32, will have season-ending ligament-replacement surgery on his elbow next week, leaving the Panthers without their leader on offense and scrambling to find another quarterback. "Anytime you lose your starting quarterback it's a blow," coach John Fox said.

Two gunmen forced Buffalo Bills safety Raion Hill into his car and drove him across a bridge to New Orleans, where another assailant tried to run him over, police said yesterday. Hill's leg was injured but he told the team it was not serious. His agent, Keith Schulefand, described the injury as a bruise. "I think he's just happy to be alive," the agent said. "He didn't want to get shot. " Hill, 24, is from New Orleans and played at LSU. He spends his offseason in the New Orleans area.

DENVER BRONCOS coach John Fox gathered his players at midfield last month just before they dispersed for summer vacation and gave them his usual admonition about staying out of trouble. By all accounts, they have heeded that advice not to embarrass themselves or the organization. But executive vice president John Elway's top two assistants haven't. "Just make good decisions, be smart," Fox said that June 13 afternoon, a mantra heard across the league as players scattered for some R&R following months of offseason workouts.

It didn't take long for Sean McDermott to find a new home. McDermott will be the Carolina Panthers' new defensive coordinator, a league source said Monday afternoon. He was fired from the same position with the Eagles last week. In Carolina, the 36-year-old McDermott will be reunited with new Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. The two worked together in Philadelphia from 1999 to 2003 when Rivera was the Eagles' linebackers coach and McDermott held various positions as he began his coaching career.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Sean McDermott was fired by Andy Reid on the Tuesday after the end of the Eagles' 2010 season. The year ended with a playoff loss in January. Almost no one knew for days besides the two men. Reid wanted to keep it a secret. He wanted McDermott to have another job before the firing became public. It didn't quite work out that way. The news leaked four days later, but McDermott, in the interim, had already interviewed with the Broncos and Panthers. The former Eagles coach wanted to protect the then-36-year-old defensive coordinator.

Will Fox pitched the first shutout of the 2014 season. And the St. Augustine senior is not a baseball player. Fox is a faceoff specialist for the Hermits' lacrosse team. He won 13 of 13 draws on Wednesday, leading the way to a 11-1 victory over Haddonfield in the season opener for both squads. "That's everything that you work for," Fox said of his ability to give the Hermits possession of the ball, time after time. Junior attack Joe Eisele scored four goals and junior midfielder James Kitchen added three for St. Augustine on a cold and blustery afternoon on the Hermits' turf field.

Surrounded by the celebratory chaos that followed his Panthers' lopsided win over the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC wild-card game Saturday night, John Fox left the Ericsson Stadium field like a Sunday driver who suddenly found himself in the Daytona 500. High-fiving, finger-pointing, chest-thumping players careened all around the Carolina coach, who, wearing a business-as-usual expression that would have made Andy Reid jealous, dodged most of the...

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - In the past decade there have been 69 head coach changes in the NFL. Only one of 20 retread coaches went on to win a Super Bowl. Come Sunday night, though, there will be another that joins the New York Giants' Tom Coughlin after "failing" as a head coach. Both the Seahawks' Pete Carroll and the Broncos' John Fox were given chances to coach in the NFL at the highest level after they fell short in their first attempts. And the teams that gave them the opportunity are reaping the benefits.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - "Knowshon sucks. " LeSean McCoy put that post on Twitter when a media member lauded Knowshon Moreno's performance against the Cowboys on Oct. 6. Moreno caught wind of the Eagles running back's critique a few hours after the Broncos outlasted Dallas, 51-48, and responded, via Twitter: "Glad [McCoy] was watching our game tonight. Great team win. Let's keep rolling. #5-0 #LetHatersHate #ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit. " Moreno was already in the midst of a comeback season, but he finished the final 11 games - rushing for 224 yards against the Patriots - with authority.

MY PROBLEM here is Craig Morton. I'm trying to assess what's real about Nick Foles' stunning 3-week run to the top of the NFL passing stats, what this means for the long term. A lot of people now seem convinced that the Eagles will look no further for Chip Kelly's franchise quarterback, that Foles has settled the debate. That would be fine with me. I like Nick. But maybe you saw that stat Sunday, about how Foles' 3-week passer rating of 152.8 is the second-best such stretch in the NFL since 1960.

September 7, 2012 | Eagles should eke past spread in beating the Browns By Vegas Vic, BY1] For the Daily News For the Daily News
Eagles (-9) over BROWNS: Let's not start talking Super Bowl just yet, simply because the Birds posted a spotless 4-0 record in the games that mean nothing, or as Roger Goodell calls 'em, the preseason. Of course, every one of you remembers what happened last season, when the world was calling the Eagles a super team, but they ended up being just mediocre at 8-8. The chatter before this opener has not been quite as loud, or the expectations quite as high, and that's why this is the year the Big Green Machine gets back to the playoffs.

The true top candidate to fill the Eagles' defensive coordinator vacancy has not yet shown his face. Just two days ago, Jim Mora Jr. and Dick Jauron were considered the top contenders. But on Wednesday, Mora withdrew his name from consideration, and on Friday, Jauron accepted the Cleveland Browns' offer to become their defensive coordinator. After each announcement, Eagles sources said that neither had been a serious candidate to fill their opening. Jauron made sense in certain respects.

JIM MORA, THE GUY the Eagles seemed to want to become their new defensive coordinator, seemed close to agreeing to go to Denver last night, the Denver Post reported, hours after league sources confirmed that Sean McDermott, the guy the Eagles jettisoned, had signed on to run the defense for new Carolina coach Ron Rivera. A source close to the situation said McDermott turned down an opportunity to be defensive coordinator and assistant head coach for John Fox, the former Carolina coach just hired as head coach of the Broncos.
