NFL Post Week 6 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

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

Yes Mr. Cash….The BIGGEST Babies on the Earth Are NFL Head Coaches But Give These NFL Hot Seat Coaches Hell Anyway!

NFL Post Week 6 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

GusBradley68

1.  Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars – The HITS or rather the LOSSES keep coming for Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley who after a home loss to Houston Texas is now sitting on a record of….

8 – 30

….in his THIRD season coaching in Jacksonville and sooner or later…probably sooner…the number of losses will just be too much for Gus Bradley to overcome and the Jaguars will be looking for a new head coach to lead their club.

Up next for Gus Bradley and Jacksonville….

The Buffalo Bills in London

….which is surely a CANNOT DAMN LOSE Game for Gus Bradley.

KenWhisenhunt38839

2.  Ken Whisenhunt, Tennessee Titans – After an opening week win the Tennessee Titans have reeled off FOUR straight losses with the latest loss coming to the Miami Dolphins that had a first-game head coach on the opposing sideline which is something that really has to worry the Hell out of the folks making the decisions within the Titans organization because that Dolphins game was Ken Whisenhunt’s….

117 th Game

….as a head coach in the NFL and the Titans got beat by FOUR touchdowns by a team coached by a first-game head coach!

The REAL question as it pertains to the subject at hand h ere which is will Ken Whisenhunt survive to coach the Titans into 2016 is how many wins can the Titans get on the board this season and now at 1 – 4 and with these games left to play…..

Atlanta Falcons
At Houston Texans
At New Orleans Saints
Carolina Panthers
At Jacksonville Jaguars
Oakland Raiders
Jacksonville Jaguars
At New York Jets
At New England Patriots
Houston Texans
At Indianapolis Colts

…we only see…..TWO, THREE…maybe FOUR more wins left on the Titans schedule if they keep playing the way they are right now and can Ken Whisenhunt survive 2 – 14, 3 – 13, or 4 – 12 record in 2015 after posting a 2 – 14 record in 2014?

In our opinion….NO.

JasonGarrett7

3.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – The Dallas Cowboys get back at things this Sunday after a bye week with a game at the struggling New York Giants and if there is a head coach that needs a win badly in the NFL it’s Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett who is sitting on three straight losses and with a fourth loss to the Giants would find his rear-end on one of the Hottest Seats in recent NFL history. In our opinion here at Coaches Hot Seat even with Jerry Jones bending over backwards to accommodate Jason Garret with standards that Jones would accept with NO ONE ELSE that works for the Dallas Cowboys organization IF the Cowboys don’t make the Playoffs in 2015…especially considering the weakness of the NFL East this season….there is NOT a chance in Hell that Garrett coaches the Cowboys beyond January 1, 2016 thus this Saturday’s game against the Giants is…

CANNOT LOSE….NO…make that CANNOT DAMN LOSE

…for Jason Garrett.

JayGruden1881

4.  Jay Gruden, Washington Redskins – Is it just us or has Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder almost completely disappeared from the public eye in recent years and probably has done so with the hope the attention would not be focused on the owner of the Redskins as what his team is doing on the field of play which we can is…

Not That Damn Good

…with current Washington head coach Jay Gruden sitting on a record of 2 -4 in 2015 and an overall TWO year record of….

6 – 16!

YES…this Saturday’s home game against a struggling Tampa Bay Bucs team is CRITICAL to the future of Jay Gruden’s head coaching career in Washington but beyond that this game against the Bucs is CRITICAL because who the Redskins play the next week….

At New England Patriots!

Oh….a 2 – 6 record to open the 2015 season and basically out of the running for the Playoffs….well this is the NFC East so maybe the Redskins wouldn’t be totally out of the Playoffs hunt…might be too much pressure Jay Gruden to handle and thus another collapse by Washington could be in the offing for what is one of the dysfunctional organizations in organized sports anywhere on the Earth.

TomCoughlin7

5.  Tom Coughlin, New York Giants – We are easily old enough here at Coaches Hot Seat to have followed Giants head coach Tom Coughlin back to his days as the head coach at Boston College in the early 1990s and we remember well that BC 41 – 39 win over then No. 1 ranked Notre Dame in South Bend in 1993 like it was yesterday BUT being old enough to remember ALL of Tom Coughlin’s college and NFL coaching career after watching the Giants self-destruct with penalties, fumbles and just plain old Damn stupidity on Monday Night Football against the Eagles we cannot help but wonder…

Just what in the Hell is going on with the New York Giants and not just this year…but for YEARS…who have been playing Very Damn Average if not Disgraceful Football under Tom Coughlin?

How Very Damn Average and Disgraceful Football?

Well….over the past FOUR NFL seasons the New York Giants have posted a record of…

25 – 28

….and in at least ten of the above losses the Giants have looked like a team that is hardly Damn coached at all…..as in Monday night against the Eagles!

Up next for Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants….

A Better Damn NOT Lose Game against the Dallas Cowboys at home on Sunday

JimTomsula818181

6.  Jim Tomsula, San Francisco 49ers – The San Francisco 49ers got a nice win against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday but then the Ravens are playing such bad football right now there are probably some college teams that could whip the quickly collapsing Ravens and that is why it’s so Damn important for head coach Jim Tomsula and the 49ers to follow up their win over the collapsing Ravens with a win over the collapsing Seahawks on Thursday night. The Seattle Seahawks are a classic example of a former TEAM that is now but a collection of egos that care more about their own personal asses than the TEAM they used to be a member of which gives the 49ers a GREAT opportunity to get…

A Second Straight Win

Raise Their Record to 3 – 4 on the season

Get back into the race for the NFC West

…with a win over the Seahawks.

Of course a loss to the quickly collapsing Seahawks would not only let a golden opportunity to do all of the above BUT it would also give Seattle an opportunity to get off the mat and gain some confidence which is why this game against the Seahawks is a….

CANNOT DAMN LOSE Game for Jim Tomsula.

Good Luck Jim!

JeffFisher5

7.  Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams – After starting the season at 2 – 3 Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams have an opportunity to win their next two games at home against the…

Cleveland Browns
San Francisco 49ers

….which are two games the Rams SHOULD win considering the AVERAGE football that the Browns and 49ers have been playing in 2015 BUT if the Rams lose one or both of these next two home games then they will be in a Helluva situation when the travel to play at Minnesota on November 8.

Jeff Fisher is now in his FOURTH season as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams with an overall posted record of….

22 – 29 – 1

….and NO appearances in the NFL Playoffs and in our opinion if the Rams don’t make it to the Playoffs in 2015 the Rams will be looking for a new head coach come December as they move and become the old is new again Los Angeles Rams.

“There’s always a price for what you want.”  Steve Perry

And

“You can’t embrace your whole life if you’re shut down. I found out that I can’t just run away and shut down. I’m losing the rest of my life doing that.”  Steve Perry

And

“I’m no spring chicken. The same arthritis that ate up my left hip that finally got replaced hasn’t stopped there… And touring is a lot of work. I’m impressed when I see people like Eric Clapton out there. Gee whiz, Eric, give me a break! I know it’s gotta hurt somewhere.”  Steve Perry

And

“I’m so hard on myself. I play these sketches in my computer for friends and they say ‘Gee whiz, the vocal’s beautiful.’ I hear, ‘It needs to be better.'”  Steve Perry

And

“Just a small town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin’ anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Streetlight people

Don’t stop believin’

Hold on
Streetlight people

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Streetlight people”

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

And

“Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.”

And

“All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant’s revolving door.”

And

“Truth is mysterious, elusive, always to be conquered. Liberty is dangerous, as hard to live with as it is elating. We must march toward these two goals, painfully but resolutely, certain in advance of our failings on so long a road.”

And

“The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth.”

And

“The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.”

And

“Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it.”

And

“Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.”

And

“No cause justifies the deaths of innocent people.”

And

“Basically, at the very bottom of life, which seduces us all, there is only absurdity, and more absurdity. And maybe that’s what gives us our joy for living, because the only thing that can defeat absurdity is lucidity.”

And

“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”

And

“There are causes worth dying for, but none worth killing for.”

And

“I know that man is capable of great deeds. But if he isn’t capable of great emotion, well, he leaves me cold.”

And

“The need to be right — the sign of a vulgar mind.”

And

“Seeking what is true is not seeking what is desirable.”

And

“People hasten to judge in order not to be judged themselves.”

And

“I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”

And

“Life can be magnificent and overwhelming — that is the whole tragedy. Without beauty, love, or danger it would almost be easy to live. ”

And

“At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman.”

And

“But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?”

And

“My chief occupation, despite appearances, has always been love.”

And

NFL Post Week 5 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

These NFL Coaches Don’t Like To Hear It Johnny….But Give It To Them Anyway Mr. Cash!

NFL Post Week 5 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

GusBradley68

1.  Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars – In a MUST WIN Game last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Bucs Gus Bradley and his Jaguars didn’t get that win which dropped the Jags to 1 – 4 on the season and facing a dire future unless they can find some wins and in Helluva hurry.

With Gus Bradley now sitting on a record of….

8 – 28

….in his third year on the job with Jacksonville there are only so many more losses that he can take without finding himself out a job which makes each and every game important starting with…the next game for the Jags…which is against the struggling Houston Texans at home. Beating the Texans is important because a the next game is also at home against the Buffalo Bills followed by two straight road games against the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens.

Our guess….anything less than 6…maybe 7….wins by Gus Bradley in 2015 and he is DONE in Jacksonville and Hell the management and ownership of the Jags might even be expecting their head coach to be around the .500 mark in Year 3 on the job BUT whatever the exact situation in Jacksonville the important point right now is…

Gus Bradley NEEDS to start winning some Damn football games!

KenWhisenhunt38839

2.  Ken Whisenhunt, Tennessee Titans – Ken Whisenhunt is in his second season as the head coach of Tennessee Titans and after posting a record of…

2 – 14

….in 2014 Whisenhunt will have to show a decent amount of progress in 2015 especially with first pick in the NFL Draft Marcus Mariota under and center and thus why the Titans start to this season of….

1 – 3

…..has to concerning to the folks making the hiring and firing decisions in Nashville.

After a one point loss at home to the Buffalo Bills the Titans face a MUST WIN Game in Week 6 at home against the Miami Dolphins who have a new head coach after the firing of Joe Philbin and a loss in this spot by the Titans to a team that is floundering around and looked terrible in their game in London would be nothing short of a….

Complete Freaking Disaster!

After the game against the Dolphins the Titans next FOUR games are…

Atlanta Falcons
At Houston Texans
At New Orleans Saints
Carolina Panthers

….not exactly FOUR easy games to win and could easily be FOUR more losses which is why beating the Dolphins and getting some momentum THIS Sunday is so Damn important for Ken Whisenhunt and the Titans!

3.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – Do you remember the old statement about Paul “Bear” Bryant which has been credited to have been said about the Bear by lots of people including the Late Great Bum Phillips?

PaulBryant181818

“He could take his’n and beat your’n or he could take your’n and beat his’n.”

Translation: You could give Bear Bryant ANY group of football players and he would whip them into shape to beat the vast majority of football teams coached by other coaches which brings us to Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett who in our opinion….

Could be given the best talent in the NFL for 5 years and NOT win even one Super Bowl Title in those 5 years

Translation: Jason Garrett is just an AVERAGE coach who has done NOTHING in his life on this Earth to have deserved to be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys or ANY NFL team for that matter….except of course to have an owner in Jerry Jones who in our opinion values….

A Head Coach that will NOT upstage Jerry Jones Precious Ego-Loving Ass

….rather than a REAL head football coach that will actually win games and championships.

JerryJone2

Any average psychologist that follows the game of football would tell you that the reason that Jerry Jones fired Jimmy Johnson after the Cowboys had won TWO straight Super Bowl Championships under Johnson was that Jimmy Johnson was getting the lion’s share of the credit for those titles….as he rightfully deserved….while Jerry Jones with his MASSIVE ego was getting very little credit…which was also correct because signing your name to a check has NOTHING to do with actually winning a championship on a football field and Jerry Jones hasn’t been on a football field in decades…besides his ass standing on the sidelines like some kind of kid thinking he has something to do with the Dallas Cowboys winning a football game!

Getting back to Jason Garrett if we were hired as the general manager of a NFL team tomorrow and that team needed a new head coach and we created a list of 100 coaches that we might be interested in hiring to coach our new team….

Jason Garrett would NOT be on that list of 100 Football Coaches

….but then as a general manager we would actually be interested in winning Games and Championships not worrying about how much attention we would get if the team won Games and Championships since the attention and credit would rightfully belong to the head coach, coaches and players that won those Games and Championships and not our precious ass as the GM if our team was so lucky to do such things.

In SIX seasons coaching the Dallas Cowboys Jason Garrett has posted a win/loss record of…

43 – 35

….and in the FOUR full seasons he has coached the Cowboys he has taken the team to the Playoffs….

ONE Time

…but then we are talking about the Dallas Cowboys here who since the 1995 season when the Cowboys last won a Super Bowl…

Oh, that REALLY has to hurt doesn’t it Jerry?

…..which is 19 NFL seasons the Cowboys have been the Playoffs…

8 Times!

Think about that for a second….in the last 19 NFL seasons the Cowboys have been to the Playoffs…

42% of the Time!

Be PROUD Jerry Jones…..Be Very Damn PROUD!

Getting back to Jason Garrett the Cowboys after the home loss to the Patriots are now at…

2 – 3

….on the season and have these games remaining to be played after a bye week:

At New York Giants
Seattle Seahawks
Philadelphia Eagles
At Tampa Bay Bucs
At Miami Dolphins
Carolina Panthers
At Washington Redskins
At Green Bay Packers
New York Jets
At Buffalo Bills
Washington Redskins

Now let’s see here…an AVERAGE NFL Head Coach coaching the current Dallas Cowboys football team assuming Tony Romo returns sometime around the Dolphins game would win…

7 of the last 11 games

….and a VERY GOOD NFL Head Coach would win…

9 of the last 11 games

….and a GREAT NFL Head Coach would win…

10 or 11 of the last 11 games

….so how many games will Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett win?

We are all about find out!

JimTomsula818181

4.  Jim Tomsula, San Francisco 49ers – It really was too bad that the San Francisco 49ers gave away that game to the New York Giants on Sunday night because the Niners played well enough to win the game AND Jim Tomsula REALLY needed a win in that spot to stop the bleeding which only got that much worse with Eli Manning leading the Giants to that last minute win.

Now at 1 – 4 on the season and with the below games left to play…

Baltimore Ravens
Seattle Seahawks
At St. Louis Rams
Atlanta Falcons
At Seattle Seahawks
Arizona Cardinals
At Chicago Bears
At Cleveland Browns
Cincinnati Bengals
At Detroit Lions
St. Louis Rams

….the 49ers have PLENTY of talent to win at least something like…

6 of their last 11 games

….if they play only AVERAGE football but then can the 49ers even play AVERAGE football on a consistent basis at this point?

Not in our opinion and our guess right now is that the 49ers will finish the 2015 NFL season at…

3 – 13

…which almost certainly will lead to Jim Tomsula losing his job sometime in late December of this year.

Good Luck Jim!

JimCaldwell188181

5.  Jim Caldwell, Detroit Lions – Even though the Detroit Lions should have beaten Seattle a couple of weeks back now the TRUTH is that Lions are…

0 – 5

…on the season and their head coach Jim Caldwell is now squarely on the Hot Seat and in need of a win BADLY starting with a win against the suddenly surging Chicago Bears this coming Sunday in Detroit which with a win would set the Lions up nicely for their next game against the Minnesota Vikings the next Sunday which is also in Detroit. If you are thinking we are thinking that there is No Damn Reason why the Detroit Lions shouldn’t be…

2 – 5

…when they head to play at the Kansas City Chiefs on November 1 you would be RIGHT and to that we only say…

Coach ‘Em Up Jim!

JayGruden1881

6.  Jay Gruden, Washington Redskins – The Redskins played well in their Week 5 game at Atlanta before losing in overtime and now it’s up to head coach Jay Gruden to get his team focused again for a CRITICAL game at the New York Jets in Week 6 because with another loss the Redskins would drop to….

2 – 4

…on the season with the Tampa Bay Bucs coming to DC on October 25 which SHOULD be a win so with a win against the Jets and a win against the Bucs Washington could be…

4 – 4

….when they head to play at the New England Patriots on November 8 after a bye week.

It’s all about creating momentum and winning the games you SHOULD win and winning almost ALL of the games an NFL team PROBABLY COULD win and the New York Jets on Sunday is a PROBABLY COULD game that Jay Gruden and thus a game the Redskins Very Damn Much NEED to win!

7.  Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams – With the St. Louis Rams more than likely heading to Los Angeles come next Spring we have heard some rumblings that one…

Nick Saban

NickSaban818181

….might just be the new head coach of the Los Angeles Rams when they kick-off in the LA Coliseum in the Fall of 2016 which means current Rams head coach Jeff Fisher better Damn start winning some football games if he is interested in continuing to be an NFL head coach and we certainly will assume he is so interested until something proves otherwise….like the Rams imploding later this season!

Now in his FOURTH year as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams Jeff Fisher is sitting on a win/loss record of….

22 – 29 – 1

….which is below average of what we would expect from a coach of Jeff Fisher’s quality which is exactly why it’s so Damn important for Fisher to win some games in 2015 if he hopes to be head coach of the Los Angeles Rams in 2016!

Now at 2 – 3 on the season the Rams have TWO very winnable games at home up next against the…

Cleveland Browns
San Francisco 49ers

….so we see No Damn Reason why the Rams are not…

4 – 3

…when they head north to play at the Minnesota Vikings on November 8.

Our best guess: Anything less than 8 wins in 2015 and Jeff Fisher is DONE in St. Louis which means Jeff Fisher would be DONE in Los Angeles as well!
