NFL Post Week 14 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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

It’s Getting Hot and Mr. Johnny Cash Is Here To Tell These Hot Seat Coaches the Ugly and Unavoidable TRUTH! Give Them the TRUTH Johnny!


Top 7 Head Coaches on the NFL Post Week 14 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings



1.  Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders – Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says that he is not worried about his job security…

Raiders’ Dennis Allen: Not worried about job security, Steve Corkran, Mercury News

…..which must be a Helluva feeling to hold for a head coach that is sitting on a win/loss record of…

8 – 20

…..in two seasons on the job in Oakland and if Dennis Allen’s job is safe then for Damn sure the…

“Just Win Baby!”

….motto and attitude no longer exists in Oakland, California!

The Oakland Raiders are now 4 – 9 on the season and have left to play…

Kansas City Chiefs
At San Diego Chargers
Denver Broncos

….and frankly we would be stunned if the Raiders won another game in 2013 even considering the Broncos will probably be resting their starters in that Raiders – Broncos game on December 29.

Can Dennis Allen really survive back-to-back 4 – 12 seasons in Oakland?

All of us just may be about to find out the answer to that question!



2.  Mike Shanahan, Washington Redskins – Not that Washington Redskins’ owner Dan Snyder is ever going to ask anyone here at Coaches Hot Seat for advice but if we were sitting across from Snyder right now we would tell him the following:

Sit Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season so he can rest-up, get healthy and focus on coming back strong in 2014

Cut a deal with your head coach Mike Shanahan that Mike will coach out rest of the 2013 season and then not coach the Redskins in 2014. Shanahan is owed $7 Million on his contract for 2014 season and we would imagine he would take $3.5 to $4.0 Million to walk away at the end of this season from the Redskins.

You have a spread-type QB in Robert Griffin III so go out and hire a spread/no huddle head offensive coach to coach the Redskins. Who would we suggest that the Redskins hire as their next head coach….a coach that now runs a spread/no huddle offensive attack and who would be a successful head coach in the NFL?

We can think of three coaches that would win with the Washington Redskins….go find those three coaches.

As for the 2013 Washington Redskins they still have to play…

At Atlanta Falcons
Dallas Cowboys
At New York Giants

…..which are three tough games even though all three of these teams are struggling mightily this season.

Does it matter if the Washington Redskins win all or none of their remaining games?

Not really so the Redskins should focus on getting RG III healthy and finding out about the younger Washington players that have a great opportunity in these final three games to show what they can do in the NFL.



3.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – There is a lot we could say about the Dallas Cowboys…

45 – 28

….loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football but for Damn sure we cannot say that anyone here at Coaches Hot Seat was….


…since it has always been our opinion that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is a Complete Joke as a head football coach in the NFL which makes sense since Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has specialized in recent years at…

Hiring Complete Jokes to be the Head Football Coach of the Cowboys!

In our opinion of course!

Jason Garrett took over for a fired Wade Phillips in the 2010 season and has put up win/loss records of…

2010:  5 – 3
2011:  8 – 8
2012:  8 – 8
2013:  7 – 6

…and with these games left on the Cowboys schedule this season…

Green Bay Packers
At Washington Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles

….is it just us or are Garrett and the Cowboys headed towards another…

8 – 8 Season?

It is not just us!

Can the Dallas Cowboys still make the Playoffs?

YES…but they will have to win the NFC East because it looks like Carolina and San Francisco have the two wild card spots all but wrapped-up which means that more than likely the….

Dallas Cowboys will have to win out

….and if that doesn’t happen and the Cowboys miss the Playoffs again…

For the FOURTH Straight Season

….then it would take a Mentally Insane Lunatic that is in Deep and Total Denial to keep Jason Garrett as the head coach of the Cowboys and it just so happens….in our opinion…..that the Dallas Cowboys have an owner in Jerry Jones that is a…

Mentally Insane Lunatic that is in Deep and Total Denial!

In our opinion as American Citizens of course!

Hey these last three weeks watching the Dallas Cowboys play and inevitable Jerry Jones meltdown promise to be great theater and great fun!



4.  Leslie Frazier, Minnesota Vikings – The Minnesota Vikings played a great game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and lost a game they could have won BUT a Loss is a Loss as they do say in the NFL and that loss to the Ravens drops the Vikings record in 2013 to…

3 – 9 – 1

…and Leslie Frazier’s win/loss record at Minnesota over the past four seasons to…

19 – 30 – 1

Is a 19 – 30 – 1 win/loss record with….

3 Losing Seasons

1 Winning Season

1 Trip to the Playoffs

No Playoff Wins

….enough for Leslie Frazier to keep his job in Minnesota?

We have to seriously doubt it unless the Minnesota Vikings come to the conclusion they will not be able to hire a quality head coach to replace Frazier….which is NUTS…..but then one has to realize that the NFL is the ultimate copy-cat league and thus there is Very Damn Little original thinking that happens in the NFL anymore and thus why potential head coaching lists in the NFL lack any kind of originality, intelligence or depth.

Will Leslie Frazier be coaching the Minnesota Vikings in 2014?

We rather doubt it.



5.  Rex Ryan, New York Jets – We don’t give head coaches and teams much credit these days when they beat the Oakland Raiders because the Raiders have a head coach sitting on the Hottest Seat in the NFL right now but at least the New York Jets BEAT the Oakland Raiders because a LOSS to the Raiders this past Sunday would have certainly been the end of the Rex Ryan era in New York!

The New York Jets are now 6 – 7 on the season and on the outside looking in for the last AFC Wild Card spot and still have these games to be played…

At Carolina Panthers
Cleveland Browns
At Miami Dolphins

Those are three pretty tough games with the Panthers and Dolphins needing wins to make it into the Playoffs and what IF Rex Ryan and the Jets do not make it into the Playoffs in 2013 will Rex Ryan be back to coach the Jets in 2014?

Well, that would be…

THREE Straight Seasons of NOT making the Playoffs

….for Ryan and the Jets and if that kind of record will keep you employed in New York then New York is no longer…New York!

YES…it is Playoffs or BUST for Rex Ryan in 2013!

YES…there are a dozen or more coaches that are coaching in the NFL and in college that could take to the New York Jets to the Playoffs on a regular basis and that is why we would recommend to Rex Ryan that he and his Jets find a way to win out OR…..

You’re Fired Rex!



6.  Mike Munchak, Tennessee Titans – With the loss at Denver on Sunday the Tennessee Titans are all but out of the Playoffs this season which would make Titans head coach…

0 – 3 in making the Playoffs in Three Seasons on the job

….and more than likely Munchak will post…

3 Losing Seasons in Three Seasons on the job

…at Tennessee and if that doesn’t spell HOT SEAT then we sure the Hell don’t know what does!

Mike Munchak is a Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans legend as a player and is a member of the NFL Hall of Fame but we here at Coaches Hot Seat have to wonder…

Will Mike Munchak get another pass in what looks like a stagnating Tennessee Titans football team?

We are all about to find out the answer to that question.



7.  Jim Schwartz, Detroit Lions – The calculus for Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is very easy to understand:

Either the Detroit Lions will make it to the Playoffs this season or Jim Schwartz is DONE in Detroit…..PERIOD.

The Detroit Lions are now leading the NFC North due to a tie breaker advantage over the Chicago Bears but the Lions still have to play these three games….

Baltimore Ravens
New York Giants
At Minnesota Vikings

…and if the Lions play their best football they should be able to win all three of their remaining games BUT if the Lions stumble down the stretch and don’t play their best football and lose 1, 2 or 3 games and don’t make the Playoffs…

The Jim Schwartz era in Detroit WILL BE OVER!

Coach Hard Jim Schwartz!

Coaches Hot Seat NFL Quotes of the Day – Tuesday, December 10, 2013 – Norman Mailer

Coaches Hot Seat NFL Quotes of the Day – Tuesday, December 10, 2013 – Norman Mailer

“Every moment of one’s existence one is growing into more or retreating into less.  One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.”


“Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another.”


“I don’t think life is absurd. I think we are all here for a huge purpose.  I think we shrink from the immensity of the purpose we are here for.


“Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain.  And you gain it by winning small battles with honor.”


“There was that law of life, so cruel and so just, that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same.”


“Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision.  The more a man can achieve, the more he may be certain that the devil will inhabit a part of his creation.”


“Somerset Maugham … wrote somewhere that “Nobody is any better than he ought to be.”… I carried it along with me as a working philosophy, but I suppose that finally I would have to take exception to the thought … or else the universe is just an elaborate clock.” The Deer Park, 1955


“The final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people.”


“Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing.”


“With the pride of an artist, you must blow against the walls of every power that exists, the small trumpet of your defiance.”


“His consolation in those hours when he was most uncharitable to himself is that taken at his very worst he was at least still worthy of being a character in a novel by Balzac, win one day, lose the next, and do it with boom! and baroque in the style.”


“There is no greater importance in all the world like knowing you are right and that the wave of the world is wrong, yet the wave crashes upon you


“New York is one of the capitals of the world and Los Angeles is a constellation of plastic, San Francisco is a lady, Boston has become Urban Renewal, Philadelphia and Baltimore and Washington blink like dull diamonds in the smog of Eastern Megalopolis, and New Orleans is unremarkable past the French Quarter. Detroit is a one-trade town, Pittsburgh has lost its golden triangle, St Louis has become the golden arch of the corporation, and nights in Kansas City close early. The oil depletion allowance makes Houston and Dallas naught but checkerboards for this sort of game. But Chicago is a great American city. Perhaps it is the last of the great American cities.”


“There are four stages to marriage. First there’s the affair, then there’s the marriage, then children, and finally the fourth stage, without which you cannot know a woman, the divorce.”


“We think of Marilyn who was every man’s love affair with America. Marilyn Monroe who was blonde and beautiful and had a sweet little rinky-dink of a voice and all the cleanliness of all the clean American backyards.”


“The highest prize in a world of men is the most beautiful woman available on your arm and living there in her heart loyal to you.”


“We sail across dominions barely seen, washed by the swells of time. We plow through fields of magnetism. Past and future come together on thunderheads and our dead hearts live with lightning in the wounds of the Gods.”


“I never saw love as luck, as that gift from the gods which put everything else in place, and allowed you to succeed. No, I saw love as reward. One could find it only after one’s virtue, or one’s courage, or self-sacrifice, or generosity, or loss, has succeeded in stirring the power of creation.”


“Obsession is the single most wasteful human activity, because with an obsession you keep coming back and back and back to the same question and never get an answer.”


“Booze, pot, too much sex, failure in one’s private life, too much attrition, too much recognition, too little recognition. Nearly everything in the scheme of things works to dull a first-rate talent. But the worst probably is cowardice.”


“There was that law of life so cruel and so just which demanded that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same.”
