Post Week 3 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Tell Them The TRUTH Johnny Cash!

Post Week 3 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

There was a lot of discussion at Coaches Hot Seat over the past two days on whether San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh should be put on the Hot Seat as the 49ers….

Fall to Pieces around Jim Harbaugh


….after Harbaugh put Winning a football game ahead of Human Decency in playing Aldon Smith against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday AND also because it seems that Harbaugh has…

One set of rules for star players


Another set of rules for backup players

…on the 49ers but in the end we decided to wait and see if the team continues to fall apart this week…..mainly due to Jim Harbaugh’s actions in our opinion….and loses to the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night.

IF the San Francisco 49ers do LOSE to the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night Jim Harbaugh should be prepared to find his ass on the….


Post Week 3 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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

Tell them TRUTH Johnny Cash!


1.  Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders – In many ways Dennis Allen went zooming up the Post Week 3 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings because all of the Hot Seat coaches ahead of him lost this week BUT after the loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday night Allen’s overall record at Oakland is still worthy of being on the Hot Seat:

Overall Record:  5 – 14

After a close loss to a surging Indianapolis team in Week 1, a win over a hapless Jacksonville team in Week 2, and then a loss to maybe the best team in the NFL in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos it is hard to know what to make of Allen and the Raiders and the Week 4 game against a winless Washington Redskins team at home is probably not going to tell us much either….BUT…..the…

Washington Redskins

….game is a MUST WIN Game for Dennis Allen and the Raiders because if they cannot beat what looks like a crumbling Redskins team then they probably will not make it to a .500 record in 2013 which is probably what Allen needs to get a shot to coach the Oakland Raiders in 2014.

The Oakland Raiders beating what will probably be a desperate Washington Redskins team is a….MUST!


2.  Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – The Tampa Bay Bucs are now 0 – 3 after…

A Give-Away Loss against the New York Jets in Week 1

A Give-Away Loss against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2

A Loss To A Barely Motivated New England Patriots Team in Week 3

….and now very early in the 2013 season Greg Schiano and the Bucs face a MUST WIN and Better Damn Not Lose Game against the Arizona Cardinals at home because recovering from an 0 – 4 start to have even a respectful season is almost unheard of NFL history.

Get your Bucs team ready to play Greg Schiano and more importantly ready to…..WIN!


3.  Tom Coughlin, New York Giants – Tom Coughlin went through a tragedy last week before his New York Giants played the Carolina Panthers with Coughlin losing his brother John in a freak accident after a Giants game…

Tom Coughlin loses his brother after accident, Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk

….and then on Sunday the Giants went to Carolina and got blown out by a winless Panthers team and after that loss the most stunning number to look at now is Tom Coughlin’s win/loss record since the Giants won Super Bowl XLVI:

9 – 10


What exactly is wrong with the New York Giants besides….

The Giants don’t have anyone on the offensive line that could block Wet Tissue Paper


The Giants don’t have a running back that could start for the Coaches Hot Seat flag-football team


The Giants defense is filled with lots of Candy Asses that are afraid of contact


The Giants seem to half-asleep during most of their games

…..is hard for us to discern BUT there is no getting around the Giants 0 – 3 start in 2013 and now the Giants have to play at an undefeated Kansas City in Week 4.

Got 0 – 4 New York Giants?

In our opinion….YES….is the answer to that question and that means…

The Hot Seat under Tom Coughlin just gets….HOTTER!


4.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – Is it just us or are the Dallas Cowboys players playing with a lot more passion than they have played with in recent years under Jason Garrett?

Has maybe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones let it be known that there is going to be a complete house cleaning if the Cowboys don’t make it to the playoffs this season?

We don’t know the answer to that question but it is very Damn clear to us that Jason Garrett knows he is coaching for his head coaching future in 2013 and after the win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday the Cowboys are…

2 – 1

…on the season and they have coming up on their schedule these games:

At San Diego
At Philadelphia
At Detroit

It looks like a team coached by Bozo the Clown could beat the Washington Redskins this season BUT the game against Denver at home and the three upcoming road games at San Diego, at Philly and at Detroit look like tough games right now which really makes the game at San Diego on Sunday a MUST WIN Game for Jason Garrett and the Cowboys.


5.  Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers – The good news for Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers is that they got a win over the New York Giants on Sunday to get their first win of the season BUT the bad news for Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers is that…

A Helluva Lot of College Football Teams Could Beat the New York Giants Right Now!

….and that means that Rivera and the Panthers will have to keep proving themselves starting with a game at Arizona after their bye week.

IF Carolina is going to make a playoff run in 2013 they will need to really show-up in their next five games…

At Arizona
At Minnesota
St. Louis
At Tampa Bay

….because more than one stumble in their next five games and the Panthers will have a tough time getting to the playoffs which is probably the mark that Ron Rivera needs to hit in 2013 to return for the 2014 season.


6.  Rex Ryan, New York Jets – Rex Ryan and the New York Jets have had an interesting start to the 2013 season with…

A Gift Win over the Tampa Bay Bucs

A Close Loss to the New England Patriots

A Win over the Buffalo Bills

….which is exactly the record that we expected the Jets to have after three games BUT now things get tougher with two straight road games….

At Tennessee


At Atlanta

….and if the Jets lose those two games to run their record to 3 – 3 before returning home to play what looks like a hapless Pittsburgh Steelers team then Rex Ryan’s rear-end is going to be on fire….Hot Seat wise that is!


7.  Jim Schwartz, Detroit Lions – Jim Schwartz and the Detroit Lions got a win in their MUST WIN Game on Sunday on the road against the Washington Redskins but then the Redskins might not win a game in 2013 if they stay on their current path and with that in mind the Lions will need to keep winning games to get Jim Schwartz off the Hot Seat beginning with the game this Sunday at home against the undefeated Chicago Bears.

Beat the Chicago Bears and Jim Schwartz will be off the Hot Seat…BUT….lose to the Bears and Schwartz will be climbing back up the Coaches Hot Seat Rankings!

Coach Hard Jim Schwartz!

So in planning a new picture, we don’t think of grown-ups, and we don’t think of children, but just of that fine, clean, unspoiled spot down deep in every one of us that maybe the world has made us forget and that maybe our pictures can help recall.”


“Once a man has tasted freedom he will never be content to be a slave. That is why I believe that this frightfulness we see everywhere today is only temporary.

“Every person has his own ideas of the act of praying for God’s guidance, tolerance, and mercy to fulfill his duties and responsibilities. My own concept of prayer is not as a plea for special favors nor as a quick palliation for wrongs knowingly committed. A prayer, it seems to me, implies a promise as well as a request; at the highest level, prayer not only is a supplication for strength and guidance, but also becomes an affirmation of life and thus a reverent praise of God.”


“I have long felt that the way to keep children out of trouble is to keep them interested in things. Lecturing to children is no answer to delinquency. Preaching won’t keep youngsters out of trouble, but keeping their minds occupied will.”
