Coaches Fired This Week

Frank Reich/Indianapolis Colts

Reich has been at the top of our list since week one of this NFL season. By no surprise, he was fired Monday afternoon and replaced by Colts Staff Consultant and former offensive lineman Jeff Saturday. Reich finishes his tenure with a 40-33-1 record in five seasons in Indianapolis. He also only had 1 playoff win in those five seasons at the helm.

This season Reich could not get the offense to have any sort rhythm, consistency or creativity. The failure at quarterback from Carson Wentz and Matt Ryan will be the biggest stain on his resume. Colts now turn to Jeff Saturday, who has zero NFL head coaching experience. He is in the Colts ring of honor for his time on the offensive line during the Peyton Manning era. The offensive line has been the weakness of this team so hopefully he can help in that department and get Sam Ehlinger some time to throw the ball.

Firings This Season

Matt Rhule/Carolina Panthers- Replaced by Steve Wilks (Defensive Assistant)
Frank Reich/Indianapolis Colts- Replaced by Jeff Saturday (Staff Consultant)

NFL Coaches on the Hot Seat

Kliff Kingsbury/Arizona Cardinals

This past offseason, Kingsbury, GM Steve Keim and QB Kyler Murray were all given extensions. Cardinals brought in WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown and Robbie Anderson to help Murray in the passing game. They have made improvements all over the roster but the results have been the same. Last week Murray and Kingsbury were jawing at each other. This week it was Murray and Hopkins. Too many egos in the locker room and Kliff is in over his head. 3-6 is unacceptable to the owner with all the talent on the team. Changes could be made sooner rather than later if this continues.

Josh McDaniels/Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders lose another close game to Jacksonsville 27-20. Yes, it was a close game but Las Vegas fails to close out the game, yet again. Jacksonville scored seventeen unanswered points in the second half to secure the victory. Al Davis stuck between a rock and a hard place now. He is still paying Jon Gruden from last season and now if he were to fire Josh McDaniels, he would be paying two coaches plus the one he would need to replace. At 2-6, Josh has time to salvage the season but its looking grim in Vegas. Indianapolis comes to town this week with a new coach. McDaniels needs a win this week. Badly.

Nathaniel Hackett/Denver Broncos

Denver had a much-needed bye week. They head to Nashville this weekend to take on Tennessee. Hackett’s offense has lacked consistency and creativity so far this season. They have a new ownership in charge of the team. Their allegiance is to the freshly paid QB Russell Wilson and not to the coach that was already in place when they took over. Still, lots of football to be played but lets see if the bye week did them well.

Dan Campbell/Detroit Lions

A very ugly win against an underwhelming Green Bay team 15-9. A win is a win, nonetheless. Detroit’s weakness this season has been their defense and that was the difference this week. They showed up and got the job done. DB Kerby Joseph was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for the 2 INTs he forced in the game. This is a division win that you can start building off of, let’s see if Campbells group can get the season headed in a better direction.

Seats That Are Staying Warm
