Black Monday: Who's on the Hot Seat in 2018? Who gets fired?

Recommended Posts

Well...........with 3 jobs left on the board we've seen (and likely will see) a rather eclectic group in this year's mix.  Old and Young, O and D but so far only 1 retread-and he came out of retirement to take it.

I view it in totality as a commentary on the crap franchises in question.  You'd almost have to consider "out of the box" as the only available norm.  Risky, but given the options?..........

Happy to see new blood get a chance, although I'd put the likelihood any of them succeeding at 0-5%.  Differing reasons but, yeah.......... 

Jets have the best chance out of all, but separate baggage that makes any buyer just a bit wary.........................

QB Eagles will eventually move will net them a windfall from this desperate mess.

A little off topic, sorry, but I just noticed that no team this season went 8-8.  Kinda odd?

I can't remember the last time that happened

Gase to NYJ.   Well, he was the one most folks thought would be signed up for a new command..............

I think its a great move for Jets.  Gase is a Qb guy with MUCH more HC pedigree than the young fools getting hired around the league.  Not sure of its a great move for Adam Gase.  The Jets are every bit as bad as the Phins at forming a talented roster.  I am not sure Darnold's ceiling is much higher than tannehill's either.

If the Bengals and Dolphins are indeed "just waiting" for the tournament to end.........it does start to look like the teams who hired D-minds did so because they have no offense to sell.  Easier to get ones ducks in a row on that side of the ledger in those locales.

Tells you again where the HQ of the QB market will be centered around.

Apparently bengals are waiting for rams qb coach. Yet another team wanting a McVay clone.

 

i guess it’s not that different than Andy Reid’s OC being snagged every other year. Bieniemy probably next.

McCarthy: Firing couldn't have been handled worse

Quote

Mike McCarthy knew change could be coming if the losing mounted in Green Bay. The former Packers coach, however, never expected to be jettisoned in the middle of the season.

"If we missed the playoffs, I expected change might happen," McCarthy told ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky in a Q&A with the former coach. "But the timing surprised me. Actually it stunned me. It couldn't have been handled any worse."

The Packers fired McCarthy after a Dec. 13 loss to the lowly Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field. Packers president Mark Murphy made it clear in the aftermath of the firing that the loss clearly played a role in the team's decision to move on in the middle of the season, something it hadn't done in more than six decades.

McCarthy took issue with being let go in the middle of a campaign directly after a loss.

"Obviously. It couldn't have been handled any worse," McCarthy told Demovsky. "Anytime you lose a close game, it's a difficult time emotionally afterwards, but when you lose a home game at Lambeau Field in December, it's really hard. And that hasn't happened very often. I walked out of my press conference, and I'm thinking about the game, thinking about how our playoff shot was now minimal. That's where my head was at. And when I was told Mark Murphy wanted to see me -- and the messenger was cold and the energy was bad. Mark said it was an ugly loss, and it was time to make change. He said something about the offense and the special teams, and he didn't think it was going to get any better. There was no emotion to it. That was hard."

McCarthy said in his 13 years with the Packers, when he had to let players go, he tried to do it with as much personal touch as possible. The ex-coach didn't feel he got the same treatment from the front office.

"That exit, frankly, Rob, the exit really stuck with me for a while," he told Demovsky. "It was hard to swallow. The emotional challenge of shifting from humiliation to reflection was a very important step in seeking clarity so I could personally grow from the experience of my entire Green Bay Packer career; that's what I wanted to get to, not just the ending of it."

McCarthy admitted in the Q&A that over the course of 13 years, it's unrealistic not to have frustrations with an organization, or even with a future Hall of Fame quarterback like Aaron Rodgers. The ex-coach also noted that he's most irritated by the narratives that his team got complacent, comfortable and stale -- particularly on offense -- under his guidance.

The more I read about McCarthy and the Packers, the more I realize it was pretty toxic there.
