Which NFL Head Coaches do you think get canned?

Anakim : 12/2/2019 10:58 am
My guesses:


Shurmur (hopefully)

Ron Rivera - I would take a long, hard look at him, especially if he can bring Norv with him

Dan Quinn - Maybe our next DC?

Matt Patricia - if so, he probably heads back to New England

Freddie Kitchens

Jason Garrett


I don't think Vic Fangio, Doug Marrone (who I think would be a candidate for this job), or Anthony Lynn will get fired


Any other ones? Maybe a surprise? I remember Malarkey got fired by the Titans a few years ago after making the playoffs.
Marrone and Lynn

to me are very likely to be fired.

Add in Gase and Nagy as possible let go's.

BeckShepEli : 12/2/2019 11:00 am : link
Garrett
Callahan
Quinn
Marrone
Rivera

I would like ron Rivera. They utilize CMC well and have been okay with Allen at helm. He has always fielded solid defenses
So many to choose from.  
johnnyb : 12/2/2019 11:10 am : link
But the three most likely to be fired in my opinion are:

Freddie Kitchens

Jason Garrett

Dan Quinn

I leave off Pat Shurmur because I am not convinced Mara will fire a coach after two years twice in a row. His reasoning may have more to do with the development of Daniel Jones. Someone- most likely Bettcher- will take the fall.

Would the Jets really fire Gase after one year? Since he had a huge hand in hiring the GM, I doubt he will be a one year coach.
As long as Shurmur is one of them...

Please God.
Rivera is the only HC on that list  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 12/2/2019 11:20 am : link
That would not sicken me.

But I think this or needs a Cowher type coach overhaul. Happily resides in Manhattan and just sold his mansion in SC.
Shurmer is a goner  
Optimus-NY : 12/2/2019 11:22 am : link
All the signs are there.
I could come around to Anthony Lynn here  
RDJR : 12/2/2019 11:26 am : link
as the HC. Tons of injuries in LA and Rivers stinks now. I believe heís a leader of men, which is what we need.
Kitchens  
jeff57 : 12/2/2019 11:28 am : link
Shurmur, Quinn, Marrone and Garrett. Maybe Patricia and Rivera.
Quinn is a Seahwaks Cover 3 guy  
Optimus-NY : 12/2/2019 11:30 am : link
That style of D is not a successful model now.
I don't think Anthony Lynn is getting fired  
Essex : 12/2/2019 11:31 am : link
if they fire him that would be a mistake. He was 9-8, 12-4 last year and won a playoff game and his team has an aging qb this year with injuries and a rb who showed up really late. I don't know the situation really well and maybe he will get fired off this season, but if he does gets fired there is no such thing as long term tenure in this league. Here is a guy who has won 2 of 3 years he was a head coach, why would you want to start all over again with in all probability someone who is an unknown quantity.
9-7 in his first year  
Essex : 12/2/2019 11:33 am : link
obviously not 9-8

Plus the team moved. Iíd be interested in his head coaching abilities.

Lynn was 12-4 last year and this year RIvers Arm turned into garbage.
Why would we want any of these cast offs?  
mikeinbloomfield : 12/2/2019 1:07 pm : link
We went the safe route with someone who has HC experience and look where that got us.

I want a new voice, someone who brings some new thinking not the same old, "leader of men" garbage.

Hiring Garrett is particularly dumb. Why would we want to hire a guy who hasn't done crap with a roster generally viewed as one of the best in the NFC.

THey tried this with McAdoo. Its all about the right hire.

Not sure who that is, but IMO it has to be made by a football executive, not an a spoiled rich boy who inherited his team.
If they fire Lynn,  
Metnut : 12/2/2019 1:12 pm : link
I'd give him a long look. We'd have to get comfortable that the majority of their close losses wern't due to coaching.
Quinn, the players  
Kevin(formerly Tiki4Six) : 12/2/2019 1:16 pm : link
Love the guy ....

Patricia lost his starting QB who would have won a few more games.

Gase after 1 year ?
Marrone  
HoustonGiant : 12/2/2019 1:47 pm : link
Rivera
Shurmur
Garrett

Gase - 1 year, and it's the Jets!

Lynn - ain't going anywhere, likely gets an extension if they feel they can get "his" QB in the draft.

There is always a surprise guy and the Chargers want FANS. Is he definitely out, no of course not. BUt, he certainly could be fired for a team that needs to generate interest.
Marrone would surprise me  
Torrag : 12/2/2019 4:52 pm : link
Coaches often get a pass when they lose their starting QB and he got some decent ball out of a JAG backup and stayed competitive.

I doubt any of them would figure into the Giants plans at Head Coach either. Including Garrett despite some BBI forum paranoia to the contrary.

If Rivera were fired I would encourage the new HC to attempt to nab him for the DC spot.

Same. I don't think Marrone gets fired and if he does, I think the Giants will be interested. Bronx guy and I believe he was in the running a couple of years ago, as was Mike Smith.
Marroneís getting canned  
jeff57 : 12/2/2019 5:40 pm : link
And I hope the Giants arenít interested.

Based on what? If the Jaguars win out with Minshew, they may very well bring back Marrone. I mean the guy made the AFC Championship game a couple of years ago.
