FIVE WIDE: With Joe Philbin Fired, Which Other Coaches Are On The Hot Seat This Season?

I was right. You know I didn’t say exactly when he would get fired but he sure did. It only took a year and half. It’s pretty hilarious that last year the Dolphins beat the Raiders in London and former Raiders head coach Dennis Allen was fired after the game. This year it’s Philbin. While it’s good that owner Stephen Ross has finally pulled the trigger, it’s still pretty pathetic to have done it 4 games into the season because you have wasted the season. Maybe there’s a slim chance that interim head coach Dan Campbell can save this season, but history is against him:

And just for shit’s and giggles,

But with Joe Philbin out the paint, let’s take a look at a few other coaches who might get the scissors after the season is over if their team’s don’t compete

Tom Coughlin, New York Giants – The Giants currently sit at 2-2 and right in the midst of a wide open NFC East competition right now. They are actually a couple of poor mistakes away from being 4-0. Since the start of the 2009 season, the Giants have made the playoffs once (2011), They would go onto win the Super Bowl that season…

Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams – The Rams are 2-2 and since they have already beaten the Cardinals and Seahawks, Fisher’s job is more than likely safe.

Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts – It seems we have another 2014 49ers situation. The only thing that can save Pagano’s job is pretty much get to the Super Bowl ad not get blown out

Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars – Despite their 1-3 start, the Jags have looked vastly improved this season. For Coach Bradley to save his job, he doesn’t even need to make the playoffs although that would definitely secure it. He just needs to get to at least 6 wins and make sure his team competes

Jay Gruden, Washington Redskins – Personally I’m hoping the Redskins have a horrible season, but at 2-2 they are right in the thick of the NFC East race. Kirk Cousins threw the game winning touchdown yesterday, this coming a week after his 2 interception performance against the Giants. I still think this Kirk Cousins experiment will bottom out
