The Week 12 coaching hot seat

There’s one fewer head coach to kick around, after the firing of Jack Del Rio.

But the seats remain hot for other coaches.  If anything, the first firing of the year turns up the flames for some of the other men who are facing termination.

So who’s on the hot seat now?  We give you the final segment from Wednesday’s PFT Live.

  1. Coughlin ain’t escaping the axe this year. Willl be booed out of the stadium Sunday. But it’s the Mara brothers fault for refusing to sign top flite free agents the last 2 seasons excepting Rolle, while allowing high salalaried Giant free agents to leave and not replace any except by minimum payroll players.

    Giants may have been 10-6 last year only because of soft schedule BUT they won only ONE game over a over .500 team in 16 games.

    This year after 11 games Giants have only beat ONE single team with a record of over .500.

    Goodbye Coughlin!

  2. With so many coaches (10 approx) leaving their positions, whom do you think will be filling the void? Some may go from one organization to another but some of these will not be recycled. Maybe you can discuss this in another PFT live or I just gave you one to discuss with Peter King. If of course this makes it through.

  3. “What? No Jim Schwartz on this list?”

    Why would he be? The team is having one of its best seasons in about 15 years. Im no Lions fan but its hard to argue that they are vastly improved

  4. Caldwell is on the hot seat for making it too obvious that Polian and Irsay have told him to try to lose games.

    That’s embarrassing to Roger Goodell and when you embarrass Roger Goodell, bad things happen to your team.

    Now Polian had to go and fire the defensive coordinator in an effort to try to make it look like they’ve been trying to win all along.

    Seeing as the Colts now have a two game “lead” for the #1 pick, expect them to actually try to win one game between now and the end of the season

    If that effort to win now that they’ve got the #1 pick locked up isn’t convincing enough, Caldwell will be fired too, “proving” to Goodell that the Colts were trying to win, avoiding a future draft lottery.

  5. Spags should get another year, but not an extension. Kroenke will either understand the issues with the lack of talent and injuries, or hire someone else and plan the move to LA. Stan needs a winner or a high profile coach to appeal to the LA fans. Either way, the Rams are gone. Maybe Khan moves JAX to STL, but the Rams franchise will move/sell to LA. Spags the next coach in Philly or NYG? Good guy. Toxic franchise. My guess is that he ends up in Philly as DC and saves Reid’s job. Go 9ers.

  6. Tony Sparano, you suck, you’ve always sucked. Pennington made it happen in 2008, not you. Go be Tuna’s assistant, and take Ireland with you.
    How does Tony not lead the list?? His boss tried to replace him last year. Is there a more perfect canidate then Tony for a firing?

    And the one team over .500 that they did beat is even more overrated.

  8. of all the one year to go guys, i see all those teams losing this weekend but… spags is only one guaranteed to be canned. they might win 1 more. like if frisco doesnt need a win in week 17. just maybe seattle.

    the maras like coughlin. the giants had a lot of lean years in the 60s/70s. one down year doesnt scare the maras. i bet if coughlin finishes 8-8 he will be back. he isnt the gm.

    del rio should have been canned 2-3 years ago. if the assistants sucked, what does that say about the guy who hired them…

    haley… lets see how they do with orton. if they can get to 6 wins i bet he stays. kc isnt used to being good yet. they have an indy style d with a weak offense too; they got lucky last year. he seems to do well in close games. if it isnt close early, he loses. by mid dec i think kc will be in mode again.

    i know people at pft like morris and they love leslie frazier (uh… why?), but it looks to me like neither is all they are cracked up to be. if morris doesnt win 7 i see him gone. he better hope atlanta doesnt need that game week 17.

    yes i think frazier is a goner. i think he might win 2 more but it seems flo nailed it. it’s political. plus he cant make adjustments. and he is no judge of talent.

    sparano has been gone, doesnt matter the team is playing hard now and can win 6. he and all are coaching / playing for their next jobs.

    norv and his boss are likely gone, and the new guys who come in will do a mite better immediately. if turner cant win monday he should be fired asap. i bet he wont. actually a .500 season is possible with their talent. all they need is a brain.

    no i dont think reid is going anywhere. he might have to give up some power / control, however. i thought they could get to 8, now i say 7.

    caldwell should have been fired weeks ago, but i see polian calling the strings re who starts anyway. orlovsky would have won 2 games by now and have a shot at 3 more.

  9. Why do you guys think Caldwell is trying to lose?? What in his history of coaching would imply that he’s a capable headcoach without Peyton Manning?

    His 23-69 record as a college headcoach?? Or the fact that his team has continuously stunk at running the ball, run defense, pass defense, special teams, tackling and NOW we can also include pass offense. Why would anyone think he’s capable of coaching up a team when he’s never done it before?? Oh, I know… because there’s a catchy saying out there… “suck for luck” so it must be true.

    Truth is, even when trying, he’s bad enough to go 0-11

  10. Coughlin is done after this year, sorry to see him go but at it’s time for a new voice and a new face in NY. I think Reese threw him under the bus by not getting him some help at LB and letting key free agents walk. It was a nice run TC, but it’s time to go. Reid ain’t going anywhere. They feel They still have a window to make a run at a sb, so starting over isn’t what they wanna do. I wouldn’t mind seeing Spags back in NY as HC. But I see Gmen going after a big name coach.

  11. Hey hey now jim Caldwell is good…..at losing games! !! Everytime I see him on the sidelines ..I just wana kick the crap outta him …worse coach EVER!! He’s a fraudulent coach

  12. “yes i think frazier is a goner. i think he might win 2 more but it seems flo nailed it. it’s political. plus he cant make adjustments. and he is no judge of talent.”

    No chance. It’s not political, it’s practical. The Wilfs are still paying Brad Childress, and will for another year, at least. You think they’re gonna pay him, buy out Leslie Frazier – and his staff – then sign and pay a new coach and staff?

    Yeah.

  13. Save 4 minutes of your life…

    1) 1-Year Left on Contract Guys- Tom Coughlin, Todd Haley, Raheem Morris, Steve Spagnuolo, Jim Caldwell
    2) Norv Turner-San Diego
    3) Tony Sparano-Miami
    4) Leslie Frazier-Minnesota
    5) Andy Reid-Philadelphia

    Should put Mike Shanahan on the list, Redskins are terrible, and Danny isn’t patient…but it would have to be after the season because Mike’s son, Kyle is offensive coordinator…

  14. so my Browns are stuck with Patsy the clueless puppet Shurmur for at least another year ..sigh this is getting old has been old i am to old for this crappy play year in year out . been a die hard Browns backer since 68 ..sigh!

  15. @bozosforall

    the only team over .500 the giants beat last season was chicago on a day cutler was hurt in the 1st and never returned that day. collins played qb for the bears that day or i mean impersonated a qb that day. this year the only over .500 team giants beat was new england? as if they have a jibx over the patriots?

  16. Sorry Tony Sparano, like ya, but you have to go. The POS Tuna set you up to fail and ran like the pretender he is for you and Ireland to fall on the sword as he pocketed the cash. You need a fresh start somewhere else. You will never be given a fair chance in Miami.

    Really? Unless you even have a clue about what happens here in DC, your comments makes absolutely no sense. Unfortunately this organization was poorly run over the last 12 years under Dan S. Now he has made a commitment to give Mike S. a chance to rebuild this team. Anyone who thought the Skins were going to turn it around in less than 2 years under Shanahan is fooling themselves. Rome was not built in day, and neither will this organization. Give Mike his full 5 years, and if there is no improvement, then you can put him on this list.
