As we get ready for the season, it's interesting to look ahead and think of the teams that will likely be firing their head coaches at (or before) the end of the year.
First off, it's worth noting the stability and relative competence that we currently enjoy at the position. Barring a complete disaster of a season, it's safe to say that Sean McDermott will not be part of this group.
Not difficult to envision our old pal St. Doug being high on this list. I think the Jags are going to be a tire fire this year, and it appears that he's worn out his welcome within the locker room. Since he's definitely not an innovator, or someone prone to self-examination of his own flaws, it's likely to be a year of him getting angrier and surlier, and his players tuning him out more and more
I don't think the Falcons have recovered from the SB loss 2 years ago, and the talent level of this team hasn't kept up. I think they're a couple major injuries away from a very rough season, especially in an improved division.
Similar comment to the one above. Cam Newton is on the downside of his career, and the owner's itching to put his stamp on the team. Again, more of a motivating coach, and not an innovator.
Amazing that he's survived there this long. I think it catches up with him this year
A team that's getting old and stale, and with a huge contract for a mediocre QB. Still laughing at how we curb-stomped them last year.
This guy's on borrowed time already. With the Packers likely improving this year, and another expensive QB on the downside, this guy needs a winning season or he's lost the team already
This team has some stars, and good young players, but this guy never seems to get the most out of the talent that he has. Plus, Jerrah has his next young coach in waiting.
Probably a dark horse on this list, but it's not difficult to see the Chargers imploding, especially if Rivers starts to show his age. Lynn doesn't impress me as a great game coach, and this could be where it catches up to him
