With 12 weeks of NFL football over with. Here are some coaching changes I believe will be made during the offseason. Included will be already fired head coach Jack Del Rio. I predicted he would be gone last year but they kept him on a year too long.
Jack Del Rio – As a head coach he went 68-71 over 9 nines and 1-2 in the playoffs. He never led the Jaguars to a division title in his time there. I truly believed he would be gone after last season but I was mistaken. They haven’t had a winning record since 2007 and I felt his time was up.
Tom Coughlin – I apologize to any Giants fan reading this. If this season ends without a playoff berth I truly believe he will be gone. After last year’s debacle where they gave up a 21 point lead to the Eagles then took a complete beat down by the Packers, I truly thought he would be gone. The Giants kept him on staff but I think this is going to be it. As I said IF this team doesn’t make the playoffs for a third straight year. Ever since the Super Bowl run they had in 2007 here is what the Giants have done. 2008 they finished first in the NFC East and overall 1 seed in the playoffs with a 12-4 record. They were one and done in the divisional round of the playoffs verse the Philadelphia Eagles. 2009 they finish 3rd in the NFC East with an 8-8 record and 2010 finished second in the NFC East with a 10-6 record. It should be noted 2009 and 2010 they failed to make the playoffs after late season collapses.
Andy Reid – Yes I said good ole Andy Reid. In the regular season he is an amazing 122-81 but in the post season he is only 10-9. He is known to have great teams through the years but this year was supposed to be magical. He had a “dream team” of players and I thought would at least make the playoffs. At 4-8 they are all but done now. He also made an offensive line coach his defensive coordinator. He should have just called me up to run the defense. I need a job Andy, hook me up man! He was known for going to 5 NFC Championship games in his tenure. That is an impressive stat but at 1-4 I wouldn’t be talking about that. He also lost the only Super Bowl he ever went to.
Mike Shanahan – In only his second year with Washington he has done NOTHING to improve that team. He basically pushed Mcnabb and Haynesworth out the door when he got there. He wanted nothing to do with Mcnabb and it was evident all season long. Shanahan may have had a point though due to the fact Mcnabb is current unemployed. He never used Haynesworth to his strengths, Shanahan wanted a yes sir kind of guy and Albert wasn’t going to do that. I think they will be fed up due to the fact they have been terrible both these years.
