Post Week 2 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings – Give It To These Hot Seat Coaches Straight With the Bark On Johnny Cash!

Post Week 2 NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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

NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

Give it to these Hot Seat Coaches straight with the bark on Johnny Cash!


1.  Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders – Consider the below little factoid about the Oakland Raiders since Bill Callahan led the Raiders to the Super Bowl (lost to Tampa Bay Bucs) in the 2002 – 2003 season:

Oakland Raiders Win/Loss Record 2003 – 2014:

53 – 125  (.298)

ZERO Postseason Playoff Appearances in the last 11 Seasons!

“Just Win Baby?”

How about the Oakland Raiders are a Complete Freaking Joke not only as an NFL franchise but are also a Complete Freaking Embarrassment as an ongoing sports franchise to the American Republic as well!

In three seasons as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders Dennis Allen has put-up a record of…

8 – 26  (.235)

….and is there any doubt at all that if the Raiders lose a few more games that Allen will be sent packing by the LOSERS running this Complete Freaking Train Wreck in Oakland?

None at all…

Dennis Allen’s job security already in question in Oakland, Michael David Smith, Pro Football Talk

Let’s imagine for a moment that Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis actually hired a general manager that knew his ass from the side of a barn what direction would that competent general manager recommend the Raiders move in hiring a new coach for the 2014 – 2015 NFL season?

How about a head coach that is actually….COMPETENT?

Is that really too much to ask?

Hell, the Oakland Raiders had a COMPETENT head coach in Hue Jackson a few seasons ago who was summarily fired after posting an 8 – 8 record so there is the very real Damn possibility that if the Raiders ownership did like a blind pig find a chestnut….think hire a COMPETENT head coach…..they would probably fire him because he wasn’t living up to the so-called Raiders standard of…

“Just Win Baby!”

….when the TRUTH is the Oakland Raiders have a new standard for their football team whether they know it or not:

“Complete Freaking Losers Baby!”

If Al Davis….meaning the REAL Al Davis and not the Al Davis that was Al in the last 10 or so years of his life when he wasn’t all that he used to be and the hiring of that Complete Idiot Lane Kiffin proved that truth in our opinion….was around today and in his prime he would kicking ass and out in America right now looking for a WINNER to coach the Oakland Raiders once Dennis Allen is finally fired.

What are the Oakland Raiders doing right now?

It seems they are talking about promoting Tony Sparano to head coach and more than likely not looking for a WINNER to coach the Oakland Raiders for the 2014 – 2015 season.

As Jed Clampett used to say….”Pitiful….Just Pitiful.”

Up next for Dennis Allen and the Oakland Raiders…

At the New England Patriots.

Good Luck to you Dennis Allen….you will need it!


For those Americans that don’t remember when the Oakland Raiders were actually a WINNING organization we present the below to you as evidence and we here at Coaches Hot Seat are old enough to remember those Great and WINNING days for the Oakland Raiders!

RIP the Great Steve Sabol and the Great John Facenda.


2.  Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars – What? The Jacksonville Jaguars have the Philadelphia Eagles beat in Week 1 before collapsing in the second half of the game and in Week 2 the Jaguars lose 41 – 10 to the Washington Redskins who have a first-year head coach on the sidelines?

What the Hell Gus Bradley?

No matter how bad the Jacksonville Jaguars were when Gus Bradley took them over before last season eventually the Jags are going to have start winning some football game especially against teams they should beat like the Washington Redskins and for Damn sure Bradley will not be able to survive for a long time with the Jags getting blown out by teams the Jags should be able to beat like the Washington Redskins which brings us to the Jags Week 3 game against…

Indianapolis at home in Jacksonville

NO…the Jacksonville Jaguars should NOT beat the Colts in this position especially with the Colts starting the season at 0 – 2 and who will be coming to Jacksonville very hungry for a win but wouldn’t it be very Damn sweet if Gus Bradley’s Jags were able to beat the Colts in this spot?

YES it would be very sweet and beating the Colts on Sunday Gus Bradley is up to you because after all YOU are the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars….right?



3.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – When you are in your fifth season as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys which have spent Millions and Millions and Millions of Dollars on talent for you to coach YOUR team should beat a Tennessee Titans team with a first-year head coach and luckily for Jason Garrett the Cowboys did beat the Titans on Sunday and that is especially true because a loss to Tennessee would have been a Complete Freaking Disaster for Jason Garrett and Dallas with a road trip to play the Rams in St. Louis this coming Sunday up next.

There is a running question here at Coaches Hot Seat on what it would take for Jerry Jones to fire Jason Garrett and the unanimous answer to that question here at CHS is the following:

As long as Jason Garrett kisses Jerry Jones precious ass he can be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys for as long as he wants….whether the Cowboys are making the Postseason Playoffs or not!

With that in mind does it really matter if the Dallas Cowboys beat the St. Louis Rams on Sunday?

Not really.

On to the next Hot Seat coach who is Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin who is employed by an owner who is actually interested in WINNING Championships instead of getting his precious ass kissed….in our opinion of course!


4.  Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins – After a big win over the New England Patriots and division foe in Week 1 the Dolphins fell to the surging Buffalo Bills in Week 2 and in a season where Joe Philbin will either lead his football team to the Postseason Playoffs or be looking for a new job come the beginning of the New Year it will be very important for the Dolphins to rebound in Week 3 and beat the 0 – 2 Kansas City Chiefs at home in Miami.

With a SURE WIN on the docket in Week 4 at the Oakland Raiders beating the Chiefs this coming Sunday would be HUGE so coach up those Dolphins Joe Philbin and a couple of weeks from now you could be off the Hot Seat….at least for a short while at least!


5.  Tom Coughlin, New York Giants – Hey we have a lot of respect for New York Giants head coach and 2-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Coughlin BUT there is no getting around the FACT that over the past five seasons Coughlin has only had the Giants in the Postseason Playoffs ONE time (2011 – 2012 season when the Giants last won the Super Bowl) and in those past five seasons plus 2014 Coughlin has posted a win/loss record of…

43 – 39  (.524)

…and that includes the 4 wins the Giants got on their way to winning Super Bowl XLVI!

Is a 43 – 39 record over the past five seasons plus really acceptable to the owners of the New York Giants even with that Super Bowl win on the board?

If so the New York Giants football club are one thing and one thing only = MEDIOCRE!

With the loss Arizona on Saturday the Giants are now 0 – 2 on the season and up next is the Houston Texans at home and if the Giants flail around and play a pitiful game against the Texans at home who have a first-year head coach on their sideline that ends in a loss for the Giants then please can someone tell us….

Why is Tom Coughlin still the head football coach of the New York Giants?


6.  Rex Ryan, New York Jets – By all rights Rex Ryan and the New York Jets should be…

2 – 0

…right now instead of…

1 – 1

….after giving away a win against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday but come on now….

The New York Jets loss to the Green Bay Packers IS the difference between an average or even bad head coach and a good or even great head coach and we bet you can guess where we fall when placing a label on Rex Ryan!

In a season where the owners and management of the New York Jets SHOULD BE demanding that Rex Ryan take the Jets to the Postseason Playoffs or be fired (Remember the New York Jets are owned and run Very Damn Mediocre people in our opinion who might just enjoy being MEDIOCRE!) Ryan and the Jets face their first MUST WIN Game of the season in Week 3 in their Monday Night Game against the Chicago Bears at home.

Our recommendation to Rex Ryan on this Monday Night Game against the Chicago Bears: You better Damn not lose it this game or you will be rocketing up the NFL Coaches Hot Seat Rankings come NEXT Tuesday morning!


7.  Mike Smith, Atlanta Falcons – We have some news for Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith as it pertains to the 2014 – 2015 NFL season:

Make the Postseason Playoffs OR your head coaching career in Atlanta will be OVER!

Not that we are saying that we know how Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank thinks BUT we do believe that Arthur Blank does NOT enjoy losing and after seeing how close the Falcons were to making the Super Bowl just two seasons ago either Mike Smith will get the Falcons back into the mix of playing in a Super Bowl again or it will be….

“Turn Out the Lights the Party’s Over”

….for Mike Smith in Atlanta just as sure William Tecumseh Sherman turned out the lights in Atlanta 150 years ago!


Up next for Mike Smith and the Atlanta Falcons….

A home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night which we believe is a MUST WIN Game for Mike Smith and Atlanta.

Coach ‘em up Mike Smith!

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.”
