Whos the next head coach to get the axe?
I would have titled the thread head coach death watch, but given chuck pagano's precarious situation, I figured that would have been the wrong choice of words.
However we are firmly in the time of year coaches get fired.
Tops of the list is norv turner. How could it not be? They just lost 7-6 to the freaking browns. Really?? That screams coaching ineptitude. Especially against a lame duck coach, and a not so good roster in the browns.. spanos needs to step up and make this a double play. Coach and gm fired. SD has no chance at being good until they change Gm and hc.
Romeo crennel. They haven't had a single lead through 7 games in regulation, a record of futility that pre dates 1940. As an aside jamaal Charles touched the ball 5 times in that loss. Why??? Romeo isn't good, but pioli is on the hot seat too. He's made lots of bad personnel decisions. This debacle looks like a daily double too, just like the chargers.
Rivera in Carolina. After the long time gm got fired this week, its clear no one is safe. After the gag job the panthers pulled vs the bears, Rivera should be sweating. Richardson isn't getting any younger...
Jerrah needs to fire himself and the hc. Another late game case of field mis management of time. The giants won for the FORTH time in a row in jerryland. That's ridiculous.
Andy Reid and co are severely underperforming. Replacing the dc made no difference. Atlanta shredded them. Vick looked like the below average qb he is. Vick will get the hook after the next bad game. Nothing else beyond a deep playoff run will save Andy. He's fired after the season is over. This team isn't going to the playoffs.
Pat shurmur just got a win. Keeps him safe for now. It won't for long. I know banner and haslam said they weren't making changes till the offseason, but forgive me for not buying that. 2 bad games in a row and he's gone.
Chan gailey and the old guy gm (his name doesn't matter). Chan better keep it competitive, or he's probably gone. Old guy is def done.
Rex comes up too. His insistence on not changing qbs game after bad game by sanchez tells a story. Either the roster is light and has a ballyhooed back up who's not very good at playing qb or the coach isn't good. I think Rex is decent, however I think his roster totally sucks. It's due to tannebaums misguided use of funds to either get guys they didn't need, or pay guys too much. The jets have zero depth. Rex feels some heat but tannebaum gets fired.
There's no hc in nola, but there is a dc. One who def deserves to be fired. Worst defense in the history of the game after 7 games. Spags doesn't have the right guys to run his scheme, but he's been TERRIBLE at adjusting the scheme to fit who he has. If you get lemons, make lemonade. Spags has made motor oil.
I'm sure I left folks out. Chime in FP. I think norv is the first fired...
