The Miami Dolphins Locker Room and the Future of the NFL – Memo to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Team Owners: Either Clean-Up the NFL OR The Fans and General Public Will Be Informed by the Media About the Unseemly and Very Damn Ugly Underbelly of Your League – NFL Week 10 MUST WIN Games for Head Coaches and Teams – 11 NFL Head Coaches and Teams Facing MUST WIN Games In Week 10

The Miami Dolphins Locker Room and the Future of the NFL

SunLife67

Between getting some work done and tailgating before the Oregon – Stanford game on The Farm on Thursday many Coaches Hot Seat members took in and read many of the comments by Miami Dolphin players on the…

Jonathan Martin – Richie Incognito and Many Others

….situation in Miami and by the afternoon many CHS Members were seething and chomping at the bit to hit someone or anything because it is our opinion that many of the Miami Dolphins are desperate to show an united front against a lot of negative, disgusting and repulsive things that may have gone down in and outside the Miami Dolphins locker room to Jonathan Martin and to other Dolphins players and by other players on the team beyond just Richie Incognito.

That is just our opinion mind you BUT we here at Coaches Hot Seat have a recommendation for the Miami Dolphins players, coaches and staff:

Get your stories straight right now and make Damn sure you are on the same page because in the future you may just be telling those stories UNDER OATH in a civil or even criminal case and it would be a Damn shame to see some Miami Dolphins players arrested and carted off to prison for lying UNDER OATH in order to protect some kind of Bogus “Locker Room Code” which to REAL Men and not the Candy Ass Pussies on the Miami Dolphins and elsewhere around the NFL that believe they are “tough guys” is nothing but…

Complete Bullshit….PERIOD

RogerGood

Yes….get those stories straight Miami Dolphins players and not just for the upcoming NFL investigation that will be very suspect to us at Coaches Hot Seat since it is our opinion NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is a first-class….

Whitewasher and Hider of the TRUTH via Total Bullshit (think the entire concussion debacle that the NFL was denying for years)

….because there are going to be a Helluva lot of people looking into what has been going on inside the Miami Dolphins football team in recent years and be assured boys….

Those stories and the TRUTH will make it into the public domain

…and the wrongdoers and evildoers will be identified and more than likely tossed out of the NFL forever because at that point Roger Goodell will have no Damn option but to toss the wrongdoers and evildoers out because they will be rightly seen as…

Destroyers of the Game of Football in America

On Thursday night Jonathan Martin….who we here at Coaches Hot Seat would trust with our lives and go to war with unlike lots of the so-called NFL “tough guys” which are really just Candy Ass Pussies and Cowards….had his attorney issue the below statement which we believe will only be the beginning of what will come out from what has been going on involving a few Sorry Pieces of Crap on the Miami Dolphins football team:

Jonathan Martin’s Attorney’s Statement, SB Nation

“Jonathan Martin’s toughness is not at issue. Jonathan has started every game with the Miami Dolphins since he was drafted in 2012. At Stanford, he was the anchor for Jim Harbaugh’s “smash mouth” brand of football and he protected Andrew Luck’s blind side.

The issue is Jonathan’s treatment by his teammates. Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute.

Eventually, Jonathan made a difficult choice. Despite his love for football, Jonathan left the Dolphins. Jonathan looks forward to getting back to playing football. In the meantime, he will cooperate fully with the NFL investigation.

Quote from teammate: “We are going to run train on your sister. . . . She loves me. I am going to f-k her without a condom and c- in her c-.””

Isn’t that just special?

Not only RACISTS but Sorry Pieces of Crap that threaten family members of…

Teammates!

The owner of the Miami Dolphins must be so Very Damn Proud of HIS FOOTBALL TEAM!

StephenMRos888

We here at Coaches Hot Seat can only wonder….

What pack of wolves raised these Sorry Pieces of Crap on the Miami Dolphins football team because Human Beings do not raise other Human Beings to act in such a way but then the NFL for years turned a blind eye to the….

Concussions that NFL Players were getting by playing the game of football

….so there is no doubt in our minds here at Coaches Hot Seat that Roger Goodell and team executives across the country have turned a blind eye to all manner of evil and borderline criminal activity in NFL Locker Rooms and we have some news for Roger Goodell and those team executives that are in our opinion….

Very Damn Sorry Excuses for Human Beings

….that have allowed this Bullshit to go on and that news is….

This Bullshit of Bullying and Hazing on NFL Teams is Coming to an End

….and if it takes hiring private investigators and attorneys to dig-up what is REALLY going on within the NFL and to then pass along what they find to national, regional and local media organizations so that it can be reported to the public then guess what….

That is exactly the Hell what will happen

…and Roger Goodell and his flunkies at the NFL offices in New York will then not only be fighting the concussion issue in the public eye but they will be facing a much bigger and the much worse issue of the…

Outrageous, Evil and Borderline Criminal Activity of Bullying and Hazing on NFL Teams

…that in our opinion has been going on in the NFL for decades and is going on in the NFL at this very moment.

Memo to Roger Goodell and Team Executives around the NFL:  Below is a little primer for what is coming and which will be repeated in hundreds if not thousands of stories involving hundreds if not thousands of former and current NFL players….

For Cam Cleeland, hazing incident altered his NFL career – and life, Sam Farmer, Los Angeles Times

“The last time Cam Cleeland had two good eyes, a pillowcase was being pulled over his head.

It was 15 years ago in a University of Wisconsin La Crosse dormitory that housed New Orleans Saints players for training camp. Cleeland and his fellow rookies were herded at one end of a long, narrow hallway. Their veteran teammates, most of them drunk, lined either side of the hall, leaving about a one-foot gap to get through.

This was the gantlet, a well-worn Saints tradition of hazing and a rite of passage for the rookies. Each had to run through with a pillowcase over his head, allowing each veteran a free shot at him.

Thinking back on the situation still sends a shiver through Cleeland, and the emotional scars give him insight on what Miami tackle Jonathan Martin might be feeling after alleged bullying by Dolphins guard Richie Incognito (a onetime teammate of Cleeland’s).

The memories of that hallway are chilling.

“Guys were just rabid,” recalled Cleeland, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound tight end from the University of Washington. “And you had a couple guys in the front that would stand in a three-point stance, and you would fire off the line like he was going to knock you over.

“You tried to make it through, and they literally just beat the ever-loving crap out of you as you tried to get through. Everything you can imagine, from kicking, punching, scrapping. I remember my ankle was sore and I had missed two days of practice because I had rolled my ankle.

“Guys were like, ‘He’s got a bum ankle! We don’t care!’ And as I got to the end, I got punched in the nose, so my nose was bleeding. As I rolled my head, I got kicked in the leg and my ankle rolled. I brought my head up …”

And that’s when the fateful blow came, one that not only changed Cleeland’s life but turned a spotlight on the dark underbelly of professional football.”

Really?

The above is what the “Tough Guy” and “Code of the Locker Room” in the NFL is all about?

Drunk and Sorry Pieces of Shit and certainly the Hell NOT Human Beings abusing other Human Beings in some kind of Bullshit Hazing ritual?

That’s what the NFL stands for and that is what these so-called “Tough Guys” claim makes you a “Tough NFL player?”

Please, the above actions against Cam Cleeland are nothing but the actions of…

Sorry Excuses for Human Beings conducting Outrageous, Evil and Borderline Criminal Activity involving Bullying and Hazing

…..that should have NO DAMN PLACE in the game of football and yet…

Roger Goodell and Team Executives have allowed this Bullshit to go on or have turned a blind eye to it because many claim it….

“Toughens Up Players”

….and if you believe that to be true or more importantly to be right then you are not only a…

Sorry Excuse for a Human Being

….you are in our opinion abetting and an accessory to criminal activity which in our opinion here at Coaches Hot Seat happens thousands of times across the NFL each and every Damn year.

Bottom-Line:  Either Roger Goodell and the NFL Team Owners will clean-up the game of football in the NFL…

OR

…..ALL the dirty laundry of the NFL will be on the front pages of newspapers, websites, cable channels and TV networks across America and if gets bad enough it will do tremendous damage to the game and eventually lead to football’s demise which we here at Coaches Hot Seat do not want to see but the current status quo…

Cannot and Will Not Be Allowed to Stand…..PERIOD.

Get Off Your Lazy and Cowardly Ass Roger Goodell and start acting like a Man and REAL Human Being and clean-up the NFL before the NFL destroys itself and if for some Damn reason you cannot do that then your Cowardly Precious Candy Ass needs to resign.

We are watching and ready to start moving and for Damn sure if some of the folks here at Coaches Hot Seat can have a hand in bringing down this….

BerlinWall

…they for Damn sure can find out ALL of the Damn TRUTH about the NFL and get into the public domain in a Helluva hurry and if the people running the NFL are OK with defending and prolonging the status quo then we will all just see if….

Evil or Good Wins

…..and we have our money on the Good because in the end if the American People see what the NFL is REALLY all about it will collapse on itself and wouldn’t IT be a Damn shame to one day be sitting on a Billion Plus Dollar asset and the next to see its value go up in smoke?

If you don’t want the “smoke thing” to happen then get the Hell to work and clean-up the NFL…..NOW!

 

NFL Week 10 MUST WIN Games for Head Coaches and Teams

 

MikeSmith1

Mike Smith, Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks – Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith has won…

58 Games

…in SIX seasons and taken the Falcons to the Playoffs FOUR times but the 2013 season is turning into a Complete Disaster and with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town on Sunday the season could get even uglier.

Now at 2 – 6 on the season the Falcons have left to play in 2013…

Seattle Seahawks
At Tampa Bay Bucs
New Orleans Saints
At Buffalo Bills
At Green Bay Packers
Washington Redskins
At San Francisco 49ers
Carolina Panthers

….and unless the Falcons can start playing some defense Atlanta just might be looking at…

4 or 5 Win Season in 2013

….and if that is the case then the very successful Mike Smith will enter the offseason and the 2014 NFL Season on the Hot Seat.

YES….the Seattle Seahawks is a MUST WIN Game for Mike Smith and the Atlanta Falcons.

 

JimSchwartz7

Jim Schwartz, Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears – Things are all very simple to understand for Jim Schwartz in Detroit…

Either Jim Schwartz takes the Detroit Lions to the Playoffs in 2013 OR Jim Schwartz will be out of a job…..PERIOD.

The good news is that Jim Schwartz has his Lions tied for the lead in the NFL North with Chicago and Green Bay with identical records of 5 – 3 BUT the bad news is that if Detroit slips up at all and falls back to fighting for a Wild Card spot then almost anything can happen and that is why…

Every Damn Game is CRITICAL

….and especially CRITICAL is this Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears at Solider Field.

Thinking worst case scenario for the Detroit Lions they will have to fight for a Wild Cart spot in the Playoffs come December and will probably need 8 or 9 wins to get that done and with these games left to play in 2013…

At Chicago Bears
At Pittsburgh Steelers
Tampa Bay Bucs
Green Bay Packers
At Philadelphia Eagles
Baltimore Ravens
At Minnesota Vikings

…losing on Sunday would be a major setback BUT a win over Chicago to move Detroit to 6 – 3 on the season would give the Lions a good chance to make the Playoffs and that is why the…

Chicago Bears is a MUST, MUST, MUST Win Game for Jim Schwartz and the Detroit Lions.

 

JeffFisher5

Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams vs. Indianapolis Colts – Jeff Fisher is being paid…

$7 Million Dollars A Year

…to win games as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams and in two years on the job Fisher has put up a record of…

10 – 13 – 1

…..and if Fisher thinks that he is actually earning that…

$7 Million Dollars A Year

….with that kind of record then Fisher is out of touch with the REAL World where for Damn sure $7 Million Dollars A Year should for Damn sure mean you at least have your team fighting for a Playoffs spot each season and as of yet the…

St. Louis Rams are NOT EVEN CLOSE to making the Playoffs!

Now at 3 – 6 on the season Jeff Fisher and the Rams are on the edge of allowing 2013 to become a…

Complete Freaking Disaster

…and it doesn’t help that the Rams have to play the Indianapolis Colts in Indy on Sunday which could send the Rams record to 3 – 7 and with these games still left to play…

At Indianapolis Colts
Chicago Bears
At San Francisco 49ers
At Arizona Cardinals
New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Bucs
At Seattle Seahawks

….a FIVE win or less season is a real possibility in St. Louis and please is there someone that can explain to us why the St. Louis Rams would pay anyone…

$7 Million Dollars A Year

…..to win 5 games in a season?

Coach Hard Jeff Fisher or you are headed to the Hot Seat $7 Million Dollar Salary or NOT!

 

DennisAllen7

Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders vs. New York Giants – Being in the SF Bay area for the Oregon – Stanford football game….

Congrats to the Stanford Cardinal for Kicking the Ass of the Oregon Ducks!

….we have come to the conclusion that things are….

Teetering Right on the Edge

…for Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen who probably needs…

8 Wins in 2013

….to return as the head coach of the Raiders in 2014 and with Oakland now at 3 – 5 on the season the game at the New York Giants is a HUGE Game because a loss in this spot with these games still left to play…

At Houston Texans
Tennessee Titans
At Dallas Cowboys
At New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
At San Diego Chargers
Denver Broncos

….it will be very Damn hard for the Raiders to get to 8 Wins IF they lose to the Giants on Sunday.

Coach Hard Dennis Allen….Very Damn Hard because 3 – 6 is a very bad number to get to 8 – 8 from and that is why….

The New York Giants is a MUST WIN Game for Dennis Allen and the Oakland Raiders

 

TomCoughlin7

Tom Coughlin, New York Giants vs. Oakland Raiders – Tom Coughlin’s New York Giants have recovered a bit after starting the 2013 season at…

0 – 6

….by getting wins over the Vikings and Eagles in recent weeks BUT now at 2 – 6 on the season if Coughlin and the Giants want to make a run at winning the very weak NFC East in 2013 they have very little margin for error and they certainly the Hell cannot lose to teams like the Oakland Raiders who they play at home on Sunday.

Now at 2 – 6 the New York Giants still have left to play in 2013…

Oakland Raiders
Green Bay Packers
Dallas Cowboys
At Washington Redskins
San Diego Chargers
Seattle Seahawks
Detroit Lions
Washington Redskins

….and the Giants could pick-up a game or two in the NFC East with wins over the struggling Raiders and Rodgers-less Packers at home in the next two weeks which would set-up a big game in MetLife Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys on November 24.

YES…the Oakland Raiders is a MUST WIN Game for Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants!

 

MikeTomlin5

Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Buffalo Bills – There is no chance that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin would be fired after a bad 2013 season because Tomlin has….

A Super Bowl Title

AND

Has Taken Steelers to Playoffs In 4 of 6 Seasons

….BUT if Pittsburgh continues to struggle Mike Tomlin will wake-up soon and find himself on the Hot Seat and be put in a position of coaching for his job in 2014.

Now at 2 – 6 on the season and with these games left to play…

Buffalo Bills
Detroit Lions
At Cleveland Browns
At Baltimore Ravens
Miami Dolphins
Cincinnati Bengals
At Green Bay Packers
Cleveland Browns

…..there are some winnable games left on the Steelers schedule BUT could Pittsburgh go…

6 – 2

…in their last 8 games to finish at .500 on the season?

More than likely NOT and anything below a 8 – 8 record in 2013 after the Steelers went 8 – 8 in 2012 and Mike Tomlin can be assured that he will be on the Hot Seat when the calendar turns to 2014.

YES…the Buffalo Bills is MUST WIN Game for Mike Tomlin and the Steelers.

 

GusBradley68

Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans – Now at 0 – 8 on the season Jags head coach Gus Bradley should be focused on making sure 2013 doesn’t turn into a…

Complete Freaking Disaster

…..which could very well happen with the Jags now looking at a possible…

0 – 16

….record which would be a very ugly thing that would NEVER be erased from the NFL history books so even ONE win would be better than NO wins and thus every game from here on out will be….

MUST WIN Games for Gus Bradley and the Jacksonville Jaguars

…and the Jags are playing at the Tennessee Titans on Saturday which = MUST WIN Game!

 

MikeMunchak7

Mike Munchak, Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars – Titans head coach Mike Munchak REALLY needs to take his football team to the Playoffs this season or come very Damn close to making the Playoffs because the pressure and heat is rising on Munchak to do “something” and after a nice win against St. Louis in Week 9 the Titans are facing a…

MUST WIN Game

….at home against the pitiful and winless Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10.

Being in the same division as the Indianapolis Colts, the AFC South, the Titans are in reality shooting for a Playoff Wild Card spot right now and looking over the AFC that means the Titans would need…

9 maybe 10 Wins

….to be in the Wild Card spot hunt come December and now at 4 – 4 and with these games still left to play….

Jacksonville Jaguars
Indianapolis Colts
At Oakland Raiders
At Indianapolis Colts
Denver Broncos
Arizona Cardinals
At Jacksonville Jaguars
Houston Texans

….the road is NOT going to be easy and why the Titans MUST beat teams like Jacksonville especially at home which means…

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a MUST WIN Game for Mike Munchak and the Titans.

 

JasonGarrett7

Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints – The stakes could not be higher for Jason Garrett and the Dallas Cowboys as Week 11 looms which means a tough road game against the New Orleans Saints and after a…

Very Damn Mediocre

….first NINE Games for the Cowboys a loss on Sunday would drop Dallas back to…

5 – 5

….on the season which might just lead to a tie in the NFC East division come Monday morning with the Philadelphia Eagles playing the Green Bay Packers who will not have Aaron Rodgers under center.

Jason Garrett and the Cowboys are now 5 – 4 on the season and have these games still left to play…

At New Orleans Saints
At New York Giants
Oakland Raiders
At Chicago Bears
Green Bay Packers
At Washington Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles

….and don’t you just know that the New York Giants would be thrilled to be facing the Cowboys after they lost to the Saints which means not only is the…

New Orleans Saints a MUST WIN Game for the Cowboys

….the game against the New York Giants in Week 11 will be MUST WIN Game as well!

IF Jason Garrett and his Cowboys football team lose their next two games to the Saints and Giants we would recommend that Garrett start thinking about what he wants to be doing in the Fall of 2014 because more than likely he will NOT be…

Coaching the Dallas Cowboys!

Coach Hard Jason Garrett!

 

JoePhilbin7

Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Whatever the outcome of the investigation into the Complete Disaster that is the…

Miami Dolphins Locker Room

….Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is under a very bright lamp right now and his rear-end is heating up and more than anything Philbin needs a few wins beginning with a game against the Tampa Bay Bucs on….

Monday Night Football

The 0 – 8 Tampa Bay Bucs have a head coach in Greg Schiano that is probably gone unless the Bucs get at least 4 or 5 wins minimum this season so this will be an important game for both head coaches and if Philbin and the Dolphins do lose this game to the Bucs then the pressure will be turned-up even that much more because more than likely nothing short of a Playoff appearance in 2013 will save Philbin’s job in Miami considering all the off-field distractions that have now hit the Dolphins which ultimately the head football coach will be held responsible for.

YES….the Tampa Bay Bucs is a MUST WIN Game for Joe Philbin and the Miami Dolphins.

 

GregSchiano77

Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Miami Dolphins – It would be impossible to guess what is exactly on the minds of the owners of the Tampa Bay Bucs right now but after head coach Greg Schiano and the Bucs opened the season 0 – 8 and with these games left still to play…

Miami Dolphins
Atlanta Falcons
At Detroit Lions
At Carolina Panthers
Buffalo Bills
San Francisco 49ers
At St. Louis Rams
At New Orleans Saints

….it would probably take at least 4 0r 5 wins by Schiano and the Bucs in 2013 for Schiano to return in 2014 and one has to wonder…

Do a majority of the Tampa Bay Bucs players want Greg Schiano to return in 2014?

Good question that we do not know the answer to BUT for Damn sure the Monday Night Game against the Miami Dolphins is a….

MUST WIN Game

….if Greg Schiano is to have any chance at all to remain the head football coach in Tampa.

Coaches Hot Seat NFL Quotes of the Day – Friday, November 8, 2013 – Vince Lombardi

Coaches Hot Seat NFL Quotes of the Day – Friday, November 8, 2013 – Vince Lombardi

“There’s only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything. I do, and I demand that my players do.”

And

“If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you’ll be fired with enthusiasm.”

And

“Mental toughness is essential to success.”

And

“To achieve success, whatever the job we have, we must pay a price.”

And

“Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there.”

And

“Football is a great deal like life in that it teaches that work, sacrifice, perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the price each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

And

“Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent’s pressure, and the temporary failures.”

And

“If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”

And

“Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it-his mind, his body and his heart-what is life worth to him? If I were a salesman, I would make this commitment to my company, to the product and most of all, to myself.”

And

“Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.”

And

“Having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it.”

And

“A leader must identify himself with the group, must back up the group, even at the risk of displeasing superiors. He must believe that the group wants from him a sense of approval. If this feeling prevails, production, discipline, morale will be high, and in return, you can demand the cooperation to promote the goals of the company.”

And

“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”

And

“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”

And

“Individual commitment to a group effort-that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

And

“Teams do not go physically flat, they go mentally stale.”

And

“Winning is not everything–but making effort to win is.”

And

“It’s easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you’re a winner, when you’re number one. What you’ve got to have is faith and discipline when you’re not yet a winner.”

And

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-victorious.”
