COACH CAROUSEL

Hi guys. This is gonna be my first thread made on site. And I have to say there are many coaches on the hot seat and few of them are official done for next season while others are playing for their job for remainder of the season.

I'll bring my candidates to be axed and their possible replacements and how they fit on those teams for next offseason.

JASON GARRETT - COLTS O.C. BRUCE ARIANS. I have Arians as Cowboys Head Coach replacing Garrett over a huge list of candidates like Jon Gruden, Bill Cohwer, Mike Holmgren and Mike Sherman because all of those coaches had control or least made choices to choose their own personnel and that's something Jones will never let to do cuz his pride is humongous that he rathers let a 2nd or 3rd tier coach tries to survive on his terms than let an elite coach boss him around. But on Arians's favor, He is a proven coordinator and groomed Peyton Manning and Big Ben when they were rookies and has done an excellent job taking control of Colts team while Pagano is absent. He might be last hope for Romo to take him for next step on his career.

ANDY REID - TEXANS D.C. WADE PHILLIPS. Many fans have Jon or Jay Gruden as possible candidates for Eagles coach spot but I saw them somewhere else, so my guess is Wade Phillips's gonna be the coach and rebuild the defense by switching to 3-4 scheme and most of roster fit in with Cullen Jenkins and Fletcher Cox as DL, Trent Cole and Vincent Curry as pass rushers plus Demeco Ryans and Michael Kendricks as ILBs with only spot left at NT filled on draft possibly Star Lotulelei or Jonathan Hankins. Meanwhile on offensive side, Eagles could hire Rod Chudzinski as O.C. for grooming young Nick Foles as starting QB.

RON RIVERA - 49ERS O.C. GREG ROMAN (I know what you think but unfortunately this is gonna be unavoidable) Jerry Richardson had already told he won't hire big fishes like Holgrem, Gruden or Cowher after sour taste given by Seifert. Many fans would think about promoting Chudzinski as head coach but after how Cam fail on his expectations on sophomore season, another point of view is needed. "The Mad Doctor" has background with Panthers plus he already proved around league he can move the ball with many crafty and elaborated formations plus helping Alex Smith on his resurrected career.

KEN WISENHUNT - DOLPHINS O.C.MIKE SHERMAN. Sherman will provide Bidwell an experienced coach who can help build faster this team than his predecessor. Sherman had bad experiences with TEXAS A&M Aggies but to be fair it was a lost cause try to beat schools like Texas, Nebraska,etc and he was cut by Packers because of Ted Thompson. Sherman already have tools to work with: Kolb showed some flashes at beginning of season plus having Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, Michael Floyd, Bennie Wells also a solid defensive core. As a former OL coach, He can help this wounded core of linemen.


PAT SHURMUR - JON GRUDEN. Browns wins over Eagles mostly cuz Cleveland's Front Office will be cleared after Mike Holmgren is gone. In the past, Gruden was tempted of leaving ESPN for Browns but there was Holgrem as team football president and Tom Heckert as GM so he decided to stay on TV network instead. The University of Tennessee is pushing for his services but I don't see Gruden as NCAA coach while he can make something with his childhood's team.

NORV TURNER - BROWNS MIKE HOLMGREN. Whispers around the league put Reid on Chargers's radar but why being satisfied by good coach while you can have The King Midas' instead. A.J. Smith and Turner will be gone for sure and Holmgren can easily fill those spots (literatelly speaking LOL). Holmgren has help teams like Seahawks and Browns to build up competitive teams through the draft and training camp.

MIKE MUNCHAK - EAGLES ANDY REID. Bud Adams is tired by being crushed and overmatched in national media and they need someone who can build his team to be a big contender. Reid can bring Tom Heckert as his GM and build together a Superbowl team. On the defensive side of ball, he can bring Ron Rivera as D.C.

ROMEO CRENNEL - BENGALS D.C. MIKE ZIMMER. Owner Clark Hunt needs someone with a tough and fighting attitude for this young team and Mike Zimmer fits nicely. Players whom played for Zimmer showed him their respect and dedication plus his career as defensive coach is remarkable around the league.

Your thoughs?

i think Gruden ends up coaching the Eagles. owner, Jeffery Lurie's pockets are deep.
I hope John Madden gives the Raiders one last spin

Arians doesn't want to be a coach and him and Pagano were BFFs even while they were coaches for the Ravens and Steelers. I dont see him leaving, especially to deal with Jerry Jones' craziness.

Greg Roman is going to be leading a college program after this year.

Wade Phillips knows better then to try to be a HC again.

Bruce Arians was just essentially fired as the Steelers OC last off season so that would be a hard sell for Dallas

Mike Sherman has no shot, Tannehill has been playing really bad lately (since bye week has 3 TDs and 6 INTs) and Miami offense is only averaging 18.2 ppg since bye week (3L - 2W).

John Gruden will not come out of the booth to coach Cleveland.

Mike Holmgren is just as likely to work for ESPN as he is to be a HC next year.

Andy Reid would be smart to take some time off before excepting another HC job.

Mike Zimmer might actually work, his son works for KC as a Ass. Linebackers Coach, He was in Dallas for a long time so could be in the mix for that job should it become available
hard to believe that Pat Shurmur has not already been fired

Isn't Roman's name being thrown around as a leading candidate for the Cal job?
If I am Roman only thing I leave for is to be a HC in the NFL. Not sure I would go back to college. He can be a part of something special here. If he does go I think Geep Chryst and Jim Harbaugh take over.

It's an interesting way to look at things. A successful college coach may not get paid as much, but they are treated like an emperor in their domain. A successful NFL coach gets the Hollywood star treatment. I guess it's just sort of up to what the personality wants.

I think he's going to be a hot enough commodity where he stays in the NFL. I actually like were the guy put him. Carolina is not going to look for a sexy splash and they're going to want someone with the ability to develop Newton. Roman looks like a perfect for them.

Frankly, I think Kansas City makes the most sense as a destination for Greg Roman and Scot McCloughan. The foundation is half way there with the following:
- 3-4 Defense
- Elite Running Back
- Potential in the offensive line

Roman and McCloughan can turn this around in 1-2 seasons by poaching a few 49ers free agents, other free agents, and drafting well. Sign guys like Alex Smith for starting QB, Delanie Walker for starting TE (pair with Moeaki), and Larry Grant as a starting ILB. Maybe even Brandon Jacobs as a backup to Charles.

You look into other free agents, and you can go after Greg Jennings to beef up the WR corp, and Kenny Phillips to address the safety position.

With Smith as the starter, I'd trade the #1 overall pick to the Bills (assuming they are #7) and get a ton of picks in return - three 1st round picks, two second round picks, etc.

Target guys like Star Lotutli - DT/DE in the 1st, Terrance Williams - WR and Desmond Trufant - CB in the 2nd, and Landry Jones - QB and Mario Benavides - C in the 3rd.

Now you got an offensive mastermind at the run game, a dependable RB in Charles that will be fully utilized, QB that can run and lead a team, strong veterans and young weapons, and you solidify the defense.

Building the 49ers Mid-West I see?

Honestly, this isn't a bad idea. It would be wise for Kansas City to try and get Alex Smith and either trade that #1 (they could also hold), and go after an elite prospect at a position other than QB. With the decent O-line they have, a RB like Charles, and Alex Smith as the QB, they could honestly make a run at a playoff position in 2013 in the AFC West.

The only thing is, is it time to clean house on the defensive line? They already have some pretty high picks on that defensive line. If by some miracle, Norv Turner retains his job in San Diego, I'd also look at bringing in Alex Smith. Rivers just doesn't look to be the same elite QB anymore and Smith could possibly run that offense, for a much lower price tag if he can beat Rivers for the starting gig.
