I don't think he's that bad all things considered.

Andy Reid has no intention of taking year off from NFL http://tinyurl.com/cwem7sa #NFL #Eagles
I hope Norv becomes the Cards new HC!

Calling it now... If Lovie Smith is fired Mike Zimmer will be the Bears next coach.

From my ATL hit: Both Pat Fitzgerald and Steve Sarkisian turned down interviews with Rams last year. Both are, and will be on NFL radar.

I would rather see him coaching than listening to him talking on Monday night football.

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 I don't think Jason Garrett is going to fired whatsoever.

I don't think Arians is going anywhere, he's pretty much locked in as an offensive coordinator and has been for a long time.

Wade Phillips has bombed as an NFL head coach, I don't see teams rushing out and giving him another opportunity to suck, especially with the Eagles. He and Norv are basically in the same boat in regards to their head coaching careers being over.

I also don't think Roman will be getting offered a head coaching position, its certainly possible but I think Carolina will be looking at somebody with a background in
developing QB's. If Chip Kelly does bounce on Oregon, he's a possibility for the Panthers.

Honestly, I have a suspicion that the Cardinals will be targeting Brian Billick. The media here has alluded to as much, that it would be some recognizable-name coach and not a first-timer. The Bidwell's are pretty much cheapasses yet they're in danger of losing sellouts at their stadium and will be looking for a big name coach to fill the void. They might swing for the fences to snag Reid but likely it'll be a name-brand choice who is affordable like Billick, who has made it clear that he'd be rather interested in coming back to coaching will end up with the job, either that or they flip it to Horton to stop it from going anywhere
else.


Jon Gruden I could totally see going to the Eagles, it would require a hefty salary but the Eagles have a good shot at him if he's willing to play ball. Additionally Bill Cowher could be a player, even if people are linking him to Cleveland which will NEVER EVER happen considering the rivarly between the Browns and the Steelers.

Reid I think is a good shot to wind up in San Diego. He's a southern California guy, will go to a team with a solid roster, a talented but shaky quarterback, but he'll get a whole new lease on life playing in one of the easier divisions in football, counting down until Manning retires.


Mike Zimmer should likely get an NFL coaching job and places like Tennessee, Buffalo and Philly are possibilities for him.

Any sort of contract offer for Jets DC Mike Pettine -- as reported by@MMehtaNYDN earlier -- would be a good sign for Rex's job security.

My updated guesses:

Cardinals: Andy Reid - HC - Eagles
*The Cardinals need to fix the QB situation, and Reid will instantly do that. I am guessing they'll give Horton a lucrative contract to stay as the DC. If Reid can resurrect Kolb (restructured, of course), and snag a 2nd-3rd round QB, then the Cardinals can really compete with the Seahawks for the wild card spot...cuz they sure ain't going to beat the 49ers

Chargers: Ken Wisenhunt - HC - Cardinals
*Wisenhunt had great success with Warner as his QB. Could he repeat the same success with Rivers?

Chiefs: Bruce Arians - OC - Colts
*Impressive resume. Arians's offense fits the style of the Chiefs personnel.

Panthers: Chip Kelly - HC - Oregon (College)
*With the success of PAC-10 college coaches transitioning to the NFL, the Panthers snag Kelly to lead their way to the new era of Panthers football.

Bills: Brian Billick - HC - Ravens
*Billick had many successful years in Baltimore without a franchise QB. Focusing on running the ball and stout defense, he won games, including the Super Bowl. Acquiring a guy like Alex Smith, and focusing on power style football, will lead this team back to playoff mode.

Eagles: Jon Gruden - HC - Buccaneers
*This team needs discipline, and Gruden can keep the egos in check.

Arians is probably going to co-win coach of the year. So of course he's a possible candidate.

I would bet that Norv Turner and Rex Ryan to the list of coaches that are gone next year.
