2013 NFL Preseason Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Let’s Have A Great 2013 – 2014 NFL Season – We Are Americans….Let’s Play Football!

After a long offseason that in many ways has the game of football in America fighting for its very survival off-the-field football has never been bigger on-the-field and as one considers that irony it is time to kick-off the 2013 NFL football season and that means it is time for the inaugural…

2013 Preseason Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

…which finds SEVEN NFL Head Coaches on the Hot Seat as we kick this season off!


As we have done for many years now with the college football Coaches Hot Seat Rankings each week we will use the Great Johnny Cash to give it “straight with the bark on” to the Hot Seat coaches and with that we are off and running!

A chair on fire... metaphor "In The Hot Seat"

Give ‘em Hell Johnny!


1.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – In the No. 1 Hot Seat as the 2013 NFL football season kicks-off is Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and Garrett is on the Hot Seat for good reason because with the money that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is tossing around these days on players and his football team this fellow….

…could be taking Dallas to the playoffs each season BUT in 2.5 seasons on the job Jason Garrett is 0 – 3 in even getting the Cowboys past regular season play.

Let’s just be honest here…..Jason Garrett’s records at Dallas…

2010:  5 – 3
2011:  8 – 8
2012:  8 – 8

Overall:  21 – 19

Postseason:  0 – 0

…are mediocre at best and downright pitiful at worst and 2013 is THE YEAR that either Jason Garrett will start performing in the head coaching position in Dallas or Garrett will be out of his job and an assistant coach for the rest of his coaching career.

First up for the Cowboys in Week 1 is a MUST WIN Game against the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football at home in Dallas and with the Cowboys listed as a 3.0 favorite by the Vegas Boys this is a game that…

Jason Garrett better Damn not lose

…because IF Garrett loses this opening game at home to the Giants we are going to turn up the heat even more on Jason and put Jerry Jones on the Hot Seat as well because the uncomfortable TRUTH is that the Dallas Cowboys have WON only ONE Freaking postseason playoff game since 1997!

One Freaking Playoff Game since 1997!

Earth to Jerry Jones:  You are more than likely going to need a new head football coach for the Dallas Cowboys soon so how about this time you hire a..


Is that really too much to ask?


2.  Rex Ryan, New York Jets – Oh Boy, this sure has been one Helluva interesting offseason, Fall camp and preseason for Rex Ryan and the Jets and the Mark Sanchez injury after Ryan put Sanchez back into a meaningless exhibition game (Memo to the NFL: YOUR Preseason is Idiotic!) has really put into perspective how close Ryan is to completely losing it in New York and even Rex knows now it is either…


…for Ryan in 2013 and the Jets opening game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is beyond CRITICAL and is verging on….

Defcon FIVE

…because if Ryan loses this opening game to the Bucs the New York papers will be on him like stink on the East River and Ryan’s rear-end will be Roaring Hot!

Uhhhhh…Rex…Good Luck with everything….You will NEED IT!


3.  Jim Schwartz, Detroit Lions – Jim Schartz has done a decent job with the Detroit Lions over the past four seasons after taking over a Detroit club that had won 10 games in three seasons under its previous head coach Rob Marinelli BUT a…

4 – 12

…record last season when the Lions should have still been trending up after a…

10 – 6

…record in 2011 has landed Jim Schwartz on the Hot Seat and another sub-.500 record in 2013 will more than likely lead to Schwartz’s firing which might even happen if the Lions don’t make the postseason playoffs.

The Lions open the season at home against long-time NFC Central rival the Minnesota Vikings and as with all head coaches on the Hot Seat what are particularly damaging to their coaching careers is losing HOME GAMES and that means a WIN is a MUST for Jim Schwartz and the Lions on Sunday.


4.  Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers – Ron Rivera has done an OK job with the Carolina Panthers putting up records of…

2011:  6 – 10
2013:  7 – 9

Overall:  13 – 19

…in two seasons on the job but the ownership and the management of the Carolina Panthers expects Rivera to take their club to the postseason playoffs on an annual basis and that means like Rex Ryan the 2013 season is more than likely….


…for Ron Rivera and his football team.

Carolina opens the season at home against one of the hottest teams in the NFL as the 2012 – 2013 season came to a close, Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks, and if Carolina is planning on competing at the highest levels of the NFL this season this is a game that Rivera and the Panthers…


IF Seattle goes into Charlotte and beats the Panthers…

Ron Rivera’s rear-end gets HOTTER!…..Temperature-Wise of course!


5.  Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders – We don’t know anyone that has a CLUE what exactly is going on with the Oakland Raiders this preseason and with Terrelle Pryor now slated to be the starting QB for the Raiders against the Colts on Sunday everyone is about to find out IF the Raiders are still little more than a…

Clown Show


…or if the Raiders can actually give the Colts a game on Sunday and Raiders is actually a…

Football Team

Our guess:  Oakland Raiders = Clown Show!


We cannot see the Oakland Raiders beating the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday so the seat will just get HOTTER for Dennis Allen in Oakland!


6.  Mike Munchak, Tennessee Titans – Mike Munchak has done an AVERAGE job of coaching the Tennessee Titans in his first two seasons on the job…

2011:  9 – 7
2012:  6 – 10

Overall:  15 – 17

…but AVERAGE is just not good enough for the folks in Nashville and that means at minimum Munchak needs a .500-plus record in 2013 and more than likely he needs to put the Titans into the postseason.

Tennessee opens the season at the Pittsburgh Steelers which is a tough place to get the first win of the season which more than likely mean that…

Mike Munchak = Hotter HOT SEAT after Week 1!


7.  Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins – Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross just gave $200 Million Dollars to his alma mater the University of Michigan…

Michigan receives record-setting $200-milloin donation from Stephen Ross, Detroit Free-Press

…and if Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin repeats the kind of record his Dolphins put up in 2012…

7 – 9

…he should know that will just not be good enough for Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and that means we have some news for Joe Philbin:

Make the PLAYOFF in 2013….OR…you can…

“Turn Out the Lights….the Party’s Over!”

And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this victory song

“Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds boy

Before the night is through
Somebody’s gonna come undone

A heartache tonight, I know
There’s gonna be a heartache tonight
A heartache tonight, I know, Lord, I know” Heartache Tonight


Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
So I called up the captain, “Please bring me my wine”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969”
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night just to hear them say
“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
(Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They’re living it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
(What a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis”
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice
And she said, “We are all just prisoners here of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers they gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast
Last thing I remember I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before

You can check out any time you like but you can never leave” Hotel California, The Eagles

“Glowin’ and burnin’, blinded by thirst
They didn’t see the stop sign, took a turn for the worst
She said, “Listen baby, you can hear the engine ring
We’ve been up and down this highway, haven’t seen a goddamn thing”

He said, “Call the doctor, I think I’m gonna crash”
“The doctor say he’s comin’ but you gotta pay in cash”
They were rushin’ down that freeway, messed around and got lost
They didn’t care, they were just dyin’ to get off and it was

Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane

Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane” Life in the Fast Lane, The Eagles


“You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes

She gets up and pours herself a strong one
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night, it’s gonna be a long one
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

She wonders how it ever got this crazy
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool

My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
You set it up so well, so carefully
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things?
You’re still the same old girl you used to be

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes” Lyin’ Eyes, The Eagles


“Harry got up
Dressed all in black
Went down to the station
And he never came back

They found his clothing
Scattered somewhere down the track
And he won’t be down
On Wall Street in the morning

He had a home
The love of a girl
But men get lost sometimes
As years unfurl

One day he crossed some line
And he was too much in this world
But I guess it doesn’t matter anymore

In a New York minute
Everything can change
In a New York minute
Things can get pretty strange

In a New York minute
Everything can change
In a New York minute” New York Minute, Don Henley


“I like the way your sparkling earrings lay
Against your skin so brown
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around

‘Cause I got a peaceful easy feeling
And I know you won’t let me down
‘Cause I’m already standing on the ground

And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul
Ah, but she can’t take you any way
You don’t already know how to go” Peaceful Easy Feeling, The Eagles


“Come on, baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love
Is gonna save me
We may lose and we may win
Though we will never be here again
So open up I’m climbin’ in
So take it easy

Well, I’m a runnin’ down the road
Tryin’ to loosen my load
Got a world of trouble on my mind
Lookin’ for a lover
Who won’t blow my cover
She’s so hard to find

Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Make you crazy
Come on baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love
Is gonna save me

Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy” Take It Easy, The Eagles


“So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time

You can spend all your time making money
You can spend all your love making time
If it all fell to pieces tomorrow
Would you still be mine?

And when you’re looking for your freedom
(Nobody seems to care)
And you can’t find the door
(Can’t find it anywhere)
When there’s nothing to believe in
Still you’re coming back, you’re running back
You’re coming back for more

So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time

Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
Take it to the limit
One more time” Take It To the Limit, The Eagles


“It’s another tequila sunrise
Staring slowly across the sky
Said goodbye

He was just a hired hand
Working on the dreams he planned to try
The days go by

Every night when the sun goes down
Just another lonely boy in town
And she’s out running round” Tequila Sunrise, The Eagles


“Did you do it for love?
Did you do it for money?
Did you do it for spite?
Did you think you had to, honey?
Who is gonna make it?
We’ll find out in the long run
(in the long run)
I know we can take it
if our love is a strong one
(is a strong one)
Well, we’re scared, but we ain’t shakin’
Kinda bent, but we ain’t breakin’
in the long run
Ooh, I want to tell you, it’s a long run
in the long run
in the long run” The Long Run, The Eagles


“So you live from day to day
And you dream about tomorrow
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away

And I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time

Another love has come and gone
And the years keep rushing on
I remember what you told me
Before you went out on your own
“Sometimes to keep it together
We got to leave it alone”

So you can get on with your search, baby
And I can get on with mine
And maybe someday we will find
That it wasn’t really wasted time” Wasted Time, The Eagles


“The sun goes down
The night rolls in
You can feel it starting all over again
The moon comes up
And the music calls
You’re getting tired of staring at the same four walls
You’re out of your room
And down on the street
Moving through the crowds through the midnight heat
The traffic roars
And the sirens scream
You look at the faces, its just like a dream

Nobody know where you’re going
Nobody cares where you’ve been

‘Cause you belong to the city
You belong to the night
living in a river of darkness, beneath the neon light” You Belong to the City, Glenn Frey
