    It is that time of year in the NFL Football season. Teams that underachieve or have fallen apart making the choice to go in a different direction.
    Wade Phillips and Brad Childress were fired earlier in the season, now the Denver Broncos have axed Coach McDaniels.

    There are several head coaches on the "hot seat" right now. Who do you think will be next to get fired?
    I see  Marvin Lewis (Cin), Fox (Carolina), Kubiak (Hou) gone by the end of the season.
    Fisher is in a rough spot in Tennessee. I would not be surprised to  see a change there!

      To be honest, I think Marvin Lewis should be the next to get fired, as it seems his team always underachieves.  Ever since that one season when Carson Palmer got hurt in the playoffs, they haven't been the same since. Sure, you can say it's not his fault due to all the distractions that some of the Bengals players have gotten into illegally off the field, but sooner or later you have to expect results.  Therefore, I would definitely fire Marvin Lewis if I was Cinci. 

      I don't think Fox will get axed, as i think Carolina will give him at least more season to work their rookie qb before firing him.  Of course, I could be wrong, but I think they'll give him a pass.  Kubiak could be on his way out too if the Texans fail to make the playoffs again this year.  I doubt they'll fire him now considering how crappy their division is, they still have a shot at winning it even at 5-7. 

      As for Fisher, you might be right if the owner decides to side with Vince Young, as I remember the owner being very fond of him from his UT years.  However, from what I've heard, the Titans are strongly considering releasing Vince Young or getting rid of him, due to conflicts between him and Fisher.  Therefore, it might be Young on the way out instead...or maybe BOTH!  Who's to say.  All I can say is it'll be pretty interesting to see how all this shakes out.  Personally, I'm not surprised both Childress and Phillips were fired, as Phillips made too many excuses for his players, and Childress is a damn wuss.  Heck, he practically kissed Favre's butt since he got to Minnesota, then tries to be a coach when Favre decides to audible his own plays?  Sheesh, no wonder why nobody in that locker room respected him.

      I can't believe how many coaches have been fired during the NFL season this year. Personally, I don't think anymore will be fired until the season ends, as I don't think McDaniels would have been without the cheating allegations.

      I agree that Marvin Lewis is as good as gone once the season over. Probably Fox as well, although I have a hard time blaming him for much with all the injuries that team has suffered in recent years and really never having a QB. Kubiak? Maybe. I really don't know enough about HOU or their expectations for this season.

      However, I think Fisher is safe.

    Mcdaniels deserved walking papers. That team was stacked with enough talent to make Jay Cutler a star and he drove all that talent right out of town.

    Marvin Lewis should have been fired years ago and the clock is ticking down. Probably one more loss and he is done. Kubiak and him are running neck and neck for the next firing.

    Fox should have been fired last season for running such a pass heavy offense when they were more suited to a run based offense and they had a QB who turned the ball over like he was handing out tic-tacs.

    The Titans owner has already sided with Vince Young. Fisher never wanted to draft him in the first place and wanted to cut him after his outburst a couple games back, but the owner made it pretty clear that he is keeping Young. There's no way Fisher can stay the head coach and be respected by his players with that type of undermining.

    There's still a pretty good chance Singeltary is gone at the end of the season. And don't forget ManGenius in Cleveland.

    I think Schwartz gets another year with the Lions, but his stool is heating up.
