Keep Giving These Prima Donna NFL Head Coaches Hell Johnny Cash!

NFL Post Week 7 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings


1.  Ken Whisenhunt, Tennessee Titans – In his SECOND season as the head coach of the Tennessee Titans Ken Whisenhunt is now sitting on a record of…

3 – 19

….and sooner or later…make that SOONER…Ken Whisenhunt will have to start winning some football games or he will find himself out of a job before the ball comes down in Times Square on New Year’s Eve!

We have heard while out attending college football games that if the Tennessee Titans made an offer to Alabama head coach Nick Saban that Saban would have a hard time turning down….meaning LOTS of $$$ and LOTS of control of roster-related issues….Nick Saban would indeed have a hard time turning down the opportunity to coach the Titans in the very attractive city of Nashville which is also very close to Saban’s lake home in north Georgia.

Whether Nick Saban would take the Titans job if offered or not is probably a question for a few weeks for now because right now Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt has to deal with a VITAL game this coming Sunday at the struggling Houston Texans who have lots of problems of their own to deal with right now and with a loss to the Texan in this particular spot would put a tremendous amount of pressure on Whisenhunt with another road game in Week 9 at New Orleans.

The Titans are 1 – 5 on the season and below is what remains on their schedule:

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

Our guess….the Titans win…..2…maybe 3….maybe 4 more games in 2015 which would leave their final regular season record at either….

3 – 13 or 4 – 12 or 5 – 11

Our guess….if the Titans win less than FIVE games in 2015 Ken Whisenhunt is DONE at Tennessee come December.


2.  Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – We have a lot of questions here at Coaches Hot Seat on how in the Hell Jason Garrett ever got the Dallas Cowboys head coaching job BUT there is one thing we are very Damn confident of:

If Jason Garrett could do things the way he would like to do them he would toss this Sorry Piece of Crapola Greg Hardy off the Dallas Cowboys football team already!

Of course, there is NO ONE at Coaches Hot Seat that was surprised that Jerry Jones signed and continues to defend Greg Hardy because it is our opinion and we are very Damn serious about this:

If the choice was the safety and security of the 50 Million children in America OR Jerry Jones holding another Lombardi Trophy it’s our opinion Jerry Jones would choose the Lombardi Trophy over American Children.


As of today in late October 2015 we have a 137 members of Coaches Hot Seat that includes dozens of people that grew up in the San Francisco Bay area attending 49ers football games with their Dads in the mid 1970s that a couple of years ago could just no longer stand the Total Idiocy of Trust Fund Boy Jed York and his now underway plan to Completely Destroy a San Francisco 49ers organization that was built by the hard work of thousands that came before the person known around Coaches Hot Seat Central as the…

That Idiot Moron Jed York

…..and there are TWO Coaches Hot Seat members that grew up in the Dallas area as BIG Cowboys fans who rightly in our opinion now view Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as one of the major threats to the future of the American Republic not just a….

Sorry Excuse for a Human Being

When you have someone like Jerry Jones in such a prominent position in American society as the owner of one of America’s most well-known sports franchises in the Dallas Cowboys and at the same time Jerry Jones is such a terrible example to our children and certainly the children of people that are fans of the Cowboys and live in the Dallas area then you have someone that can do…

Great Damage to those children…OUR children

…because they will see such a prominent person as maybe actually acting in the “RIGHT” way when the TRUTH is Jerry Jones is just flat-out a…

Sorry Damn Excuse for a Human Being if today taken to another planet by aliens would make the American Republic a better place for Americans to live in!

Since it is our firm opinion that Jason Garrett….good, bad or pitiful football coach or not….would toss Greg Hardy out on his Sorry Ass if having the choice to do so we have to wonder how long Garrett is going to put up working for such a Piece of Shit like Jerry Jones BUT then the question here we are concerned about Jason Garrett and the Hot Seat and at this moment the TRUTH is…

Jason Garrett is on the Hot Seat


Jason Garrett works for a Sorry Excuse for a Human Being in Jerry Jones

Up next for Jason Garrett and the 2 – 4 Dallas Cowboys the…

Seattle Seahawks in Dallas

….and although there are no fans of the Seahawks here at Coaches Hot Seat were certainly the Hell hope the…

Seahawks DESTROY the Cowboys on Sunday

….because the sooner that the Cowboys and the Sorry Piece of Shit they have as an owner in Jerry Jones are tossed from the stage the better it is for the American Republic!


3.  Jim Caldwell, Detroit Lions – Jim Caldwell wasn’t give much room to run during his three seasons as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts after taking the Colts to the Playoffs in his first two years on the job and after not taking the Colts to the postseason in year three was sent packing and we have a feeling that Jim Caldwell is coaching for his job in Year 2 with the Detroit Lions after the Lions went to the Playoffs last season and have stumbled out of the gate in Year 2 with a 1 – 5 start.

It’s impossible for us to know if Jim Caldwell is a bad, mediocre, good or great football coach since so much of what Caldwell does is behind closed doors in practices, in offices and away from the public eye which leaves us with what his football teams do on the field of play and in FOUR seasons as a NFL coach he took his team to the Playoffs THREE times and yet…there is no doubt in our minds that after that 1 – 5 start to the 2015 season…

Jim Caldwell is on the Hot Seat

….and will more than likely be fired if the Lions continue to fall apart this season.

Up next for Jim Caldwell and the Detroit Lions is a CRITICAL game at the Kansas City Chiefs that with a win could turnaround the season and with a loss would leave the Lions at 1 – 6 with a bye week next and then a trip to Green Bay to play the Packers!

Damn….you better Damn beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Jim Caldwell!


4.  Jim Tomsula, San Francisco 49ers – Even though there are dozens of former San Francisco 49ers fans here at Coaches Hot Seat it’s impossible for us to pull against nice guy and head coach of the 49ers Jim Tomsula although there is no Damn way in Hell that Jim should be a head coach in the NFL right now which again speaks volumes about the Total Idiocy of 49ers owner Trust Fund Boy Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke who if living in the Real World and not the Fantasy World of an Idiot being handed a NFL franchise would be lucky to be shoveling shit for a living!

The 49ers are now 2 – 5 on the season and have HUGE game relative to the rest of the season at the St. Louis Rams on Sunday which with a loss would probably unravel the 49ers and lead to the Complete Freaking Disaster that so many of us predicted for this football team in the wake of Jim Harbaugh leaving Santa Clara which is where Trust Fund Boy Jed York…

STUPIDLY built the 49ers new football stadium!

Oh Jed York you are indeed an IDIOT son!



5.  Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars – Gus Bradley and the Jacksonville Jaguars got a much needed win over the Buffalo Bills in London to raise their record to 2 – 5 on the season BUT beating the Bills which look to be in complete disarray in Rex Ryan’s first season with Ryan rapidly heading to finding his ass on the Hot Seat is not a lot to write home about even from London and now Bradley and the Jags will need to keep the ball rolling with games…

At New York Jets
At Baltimore Ravens

….over the next two weeks before hosting Tennessee no November 19.

It’s just our opinion but IF the Jacksonville Jaguars win less than FIVE games in 2015….

Gus Bradley is DONE in Jacksonville…and should be DONE in Jacksonville!


6.  Lovie Smith, Tampa Bay Bucs – Now in his SECOND season as the head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs Lovie Smith is sitting on an overall record of…

4 – 18

…and like SECOND year coach Ken Whisenhunt of the Titans either Lovie Smith will start winning some football games or he will find his stay in Tampa a short one especially with like Whisenhunt a first-round draft choice under center and plenty of talent on both the Titans and Bucs rosters.

Here’s the problem for the 2 – 4 Bucs and their head coach Lovie Smith…the rest of their schedule:

At Atlanta Falcons
New York Giants
Dallas Cowboys
At Philadelphia Eagles
At Indianapolis Colts
Atlanta Falcons
New Orleans Saints
At St. Louis Rams
Chicago Bears
At Carolina Panthers

Damn…how many games can the Bucs realistically win in 2015?

Maybe 2, 3 or 4 more game…..and if the Bucs win 4 more games they will finish 2015 at…

6 – 10

…which is probably good enough to get Lovie Smith one more season with the Bucs but wouldn’t make anyone in Tampa very happy.


7.  Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts – We are not quite sure where the Hot Seat talk started with Chuck Pagano even before the season got underway since Pagano has taken the Colts to the Playoffs in all THREE of his seasons with the football team with the following results….

2012: 11 – 5 – Lost to Baltimore Ravens in AFC Wild Card Game

2013: 11 – 5 – Lost to New England Patriots in AFC Divisional Game

2014: 11 – 5 – Lost to New England Patriots in AFC Championship Game

…which is a pretty impressive resume to us but then it’s our opinion that the Colts are owned and run by people that would be shoveling shit for a living if not lucking into owning and managing a NFL football team who it seems WANT to see Chuck Pagano on the Hot Seat and guess what Idiots….Chuck Pagano is on the Hot Seat now!

Now at 3 – 4 on the season after the loss to the New Orleans Saints it doesn’t get any easier for the Colts over the next THREE games against…

At Carolina Panthers
Denver Broncos
At Atlanta Falcons

…and more than likely if the Colts go 0 – 3 in their next THREE games the end of Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis will be self-evident which it seems is what the people with the power at the Colts want and to that all we can say is…

Good Luck against the Panthers Chuck!

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad.

“Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature — opposition to it, in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise — repeal all compromises — repeal the Declaration of Independence — repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man’s heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak.”


“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863


Lincoln’s War, The Untold Story of American’s Greatest President as Commander in Chief by Geoffrey Perret

Here is a great excerpt from that book that happened just after the First Battle of Bull Run, August 1861:

“Dozens of regiments had set up impromptu around Fort Corcoran, on Arlington Heights. Every day these canvas congeries trembled like leaves in the wind as fresh rumors of an impending Confederate attack. And every day Lincoln heard fresh stories of demoralized troops, mutinous regiments, poor discipline. Some regiments were entitled to – and clamoring for – an immediate discharge, their ninety-day service complete. The War Department’s officers seemed to busy for the burdensome task of mustering them out. Unchecked, however, mutinous sentiments could spread through camps like a virulent disease.

Lincoln decided to see for himself, and Seward went with him. A few days after Bull Run, they rode across the Potomac in an open carriage on an impromptu visit to the troops. What greeted them was redoubts spreading across the landscape, tents sprouting like mushrooms in nearly every direction, dusty roads, a cross-hatching of cart tracks, men milling or lolling about, few signs of order or purpose. Yet the District, on edge for its safety, has more than enough men to defend it – if the men chose.

As the carriage rattled along towards Fort Corcoran, a red-bearded colonel strode up: William Tecumseh Sherman. He had commanded a brigade at Bull Run, superbly. Sherman asked if the President had come to see the troops. “Yes,” said Lincoln. “We heard that you had got over the big scare and we thought we would come over and see the boys.”

Sherman got into the carriage, giving the driver directions to a camp at the top of a small hill. Sitting next to Lincoln, he asked if the President intended to speak to the men. “I would like to,” said Lincoln.

Sherman said he no objection to that, but he did not want cheering, “No hurrahing, no humbug. We had enough of it before Bull Run to spoil any set of them.” None worse than the 69 th New York, filled with Irishmen angry at not being discharged. Sherman had rebuked one of the officers of lax discipline.

Standing in the carriage, Lincoln gave an impromptu talk to Sherman’s troops: bravery, sacrifice, gratitude, a glorious future. The men began to cheer, but he held up his hand. “Don’t cheer boys, I confess I rather like it myself, but Colonel Sherman says it is not military, and I guess we had better defer to his opinion.”

Closing his impromptu peroration, Lincoln said that as Commander in Chief, he was determined that every man should be treated exactly as the law required: his indirect promise that those entitled to a discharge would soon have one. As the carriage moved on, a young officer ran after it, calling out piteously, “Mr. Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln!”

Lincoln ordered the driver to stop. Here was the officer of the 69 th New York whom Sherman had criticized, panting hard. “Mr. President, I have a cause of grievance. This morning I went to speak to Colonel Sherman, and he threatened to shoot me.”

“I told him Mr. President, that if he refused to obey my order, I would shoot him on the spot,” said Sherman. “And I here repeat it, sir, that if I remain in command here, and he or any other man refuses to obey my orders, I’ll shoot him on the spot.”

Lincoln bent forward. “My lad, if I were you, and he threatened to shoot, I would not trust him, for I believe he would do it!” The troops, until then sympathetic to the officer, howled with laughter.

Both Seward and Lincoln were impressed by the comparative tidiness of the camps of Sherman’s regiments. “This is the first bright moment I’ve experienced since the battle,” Lincoln told Sherman before riding off. From his own military experience, he knew that neatness and cleanliness is an army spelled discipline; neglect was a signal of trouble to come.”
