Deserves to be Fired

1. Marinnelli / anyone associated with this team.

2. Crennel / Savage

3. Wade Phillips

4. Norv Turner sure you made the playoffs but your still a crappy Head Coach.

5. Marvin Lewis

6. McCarthy and GM

Haslett and Cable I'm lukewarm on fireing

If Mangini gets fired for having a better record and some of these bums above stay. All I can say are you kidding me.

Herm Edwards says "hello."
 
The Cowboys need a real GM - one who understands how to build a team instead of just collecting individual players who have talent.

 
McCarthy and Thompson are pretty safe this year.

McCarthy probably on notice to improve next year...some coordinators probably losing their jobs (most notably Stock the Special Teams coach and Sanders the DC).

McCarthy could be gone after next year...IMO, Thompson is more tied to Rodgers than McCarthy and may get the chance to hire one more head coach (unless things really go terrible next year).

 
My thoughts -- taken from last weeks Fantasy Roundtable discussion:

**** Jauron, Buffalo -- I'm not sure how I feel about him as I don't sense he did a very bad job this year; the Bills weren't as talented as they played early in the season by any stretch. On the other hand, I've never viewed him as a great coach so a change would be justifiable.

Romeo Crennel, Cleveland -- Romeo is a goner, it's just a matter of whether his GM follows him out the door.

Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati -- It's time we all admitted the Marvin Lewis era was a failure. Whether the cheap skate ownership will let him go is another question, but if this team wants to rebuild itself anew, it needs to jettison Lewis OR completely gut the team's personnel. It's much easier to fire a coach than it would be to trade Chad Johnson, Housh and others.

Wade Phillips, Dallas -- Hard to imagine firing Wade Phillips but with Jason Garrett waiting in the wings and lots of other NFL jobs opening up, I could see Jerry Jones making the move if he feels Garrett is the long-term answer.

Mike Shanahan, Denver -- Shanahan will never be fired, but if he misses the playoffs or fails to win a playoff game, could he finally get the urge to go somewhere else? I could see him (or Mike Holmgren) landing in San Francisco

Rod Marinelli, Detriot -- It would be absolutely inexcusable to keep Rod Marinelli in place after a 1-15 or 0-16 season, regardless of what the Fords may be saying publicly. He's being attacked by the media for nepotism, is about to be the first winless coach in league history, and has done nothing in any season to indicate he has a handle on things. Think of how bad the Lions might have been without Mike Martz' offense shenanigans in the last few seasons.

Jack Del Rio, Jacksonville -- I agree that Del Rio has some explaining to do; however, I think he's safe as the team jettisoned their Player Personnel director James Harris.

Herm Edwards, Kansas City -- Herm is posturing that he won't resign, but that's really just about his wanting to be paid the remainder of his contract while someone else coaches the team in 2009. With a new GM coming aboard, you have to let the chef shop for the groceries, which means a new coach in 2009.

Eric Mangini, New York Jets -- New York papers are reporting that Mangini might be fired if he doesn't make the playoffs. We'll see.

Tom Cable, Oakland -- The Raiders aren't going to keep Tom Cable aboard.

Andy Reid, Philadelphia -- A lot of Eagles fans hope Reid leaves, but let's be clear his job isn't in jeopardy. If he leaves it's because he wants to coach elsewhere, and I just don't see that happening.

Jim Haslett, St. Louis -- The Rams have already said they will hold an open interview process this offseason and allow Jim Haslett a chance to win the job against others. My view is if they had any faith in Haslett, they wouldn't have publicly announced the job to be open. Personally I fail to see why Haslett should get the job since the Rams defense has been abysmal under his stewardship.

Mike Singletary, San Francisco -- I'm sure the 49ers will give Singletary a chance at the job, but realistically is he the answer? I have my doubts.

Jim Zorn, Washington -- Jim Zorn has already been given the vote of confidence, and that's good because I don't think he deserves to worry about his job after a decent first year.

________________________________________________

Now since we had that round table, a few things have happened.

1) The Eagles made the playoffs ending any speculation that Reid would be gone. I didn't think he was at risk anyway but it's a moot point now either way

2) There's a lot of chatter that Al Davis likes Tom Cable and he's safe. If you consider that most established coaches wouldn't go to Oakland, plus Cable will come cheaply, it's possible he stays -- but I don't think he should

3) Mike Singletary has been officially named 2009 coach, so that's a moot discussion

4) Mangini, Crennel and Marinelli were fired as expected

 
My list of those still with jobs that shouldn't:

1) Wade Phillips

2) Herm Edwards

3) **** Jauron

Interim's that should be let go:

Cable

Haslett

On the Hot Seat for Next Year:

1) Mike Shanahan

2) Job Gruden

3) Marvin Lewis (Bengals performed down the stretch, get rid of CJ, get Palmer back and things might work)

How about Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum? Pretty sure that his background is more as a bean-counter than as a talent evaluator. Suprising that a team in a major market wouldn't have a legit man in control of player personnel.

PFT says that Al Davis might want to bring in Kevin Gilbride as the head coach. If I were a Raider fan, I would cringe at that notion.
