Who’s the next coach to get fired? NFC Version

Yesterday, we gave out the AFC version of “Who’s the next coach to be fired?” Today, we have the NFC version, with the firing rating, of course 1 being no way he’s being fired and 10 absolutely he’s being fired. Without further ado, here it is.

NFC East

1. Philadelphia Eagles (8-4)

Coach: Andy Reid

Firing Rating: 2

Why: Michael Vick has literally carried this team the whole year. While of course he gets a lot of the credit, give Reid some too, for making the right decision with Vick.

 

2. New York Giants (8-4)

Coach: Tom Coughlin

Firing Rating: 4

Why: Coughlin is a regular on the hot seat and he’s got a great team. Fortunately for him, the Giants are right in the middle of the pack.

 

3. Washington Redskins (5-7)

Coach: Mike Shanahan

Firing Rating: 4

Why: The Shanahan Experiment hasn’t turned out so well in his first year. The main reason is because signing Donovan McNabb was a disaster. Even more inexplicable is why they resigned him for a big deal.

 

4. Dallas Cowboys

Coach: Jason Garrett

Firing Rating: 5

Why: Garrett was that breeze of fresh air for the Cowboys after the firing of Wade Phillips, but it’s doubtful he’s the longtime coach.

 

NFC North

1. Chicago Bears (9-3)

Coach: Lovie Smith

Firing Rating: 3

Why: Smith came into this season on the hot seat, but a surprising record has shown otherwise. Right now he’s safe.

 

2. Green Bay Packers (8-4)

Coach: Mike McCarthy

Firing Rating: 3

Why: There’s no reason to fire him, as the Packers are still an elite team this year even without their starting running back, Ryan Grant.

 

3. Minnesota Vikings

Coach: Leslie Frazier

Firing Rating: 3

Why: Frazier has brought the defensive minded coach the Vikings desperately needed. He takes pressure off of Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson, and that will help.

 

4. Detroit Lions (2-10)

Coach: Jim Schwartz

Firing Rating: 6

Why: Although the Lions have actually won a pair of games, it won’t be enough in the longtime future.

 

NFC South

1. Atlanta Falcons (10-2)

Coach: Mike Smith

Firing Rating: 1

Why: Smith has done a great job this year, as the Falcons easily are the best overlooked team and maybe the best in the NFL.

 

2. New Orleans Saints (9-3)

Coach: Sean Payton

Firing Rating: 1

Why: He’s a Super Bowl winning coach! He’s 9-3, and been unlucky playing in a great division.

 

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-5)

Coach: Raheem Morris

Firing Rating: 3

Why: Morris has shown a great improvement from last year, when the Bucs were a measly 3-13.

 

4.  Carolina Panthers (1-11)

Coach: John Fox

Firing Rating: 9

Why: The Panthers are a laughingstock right now, and a lot of the blame goes to Fox for their awful defense.

 

NFC West

1. St. Louis Rams (6-6)

Coach: Steve Spagnuolo

Firing Rating: 4

Why: Spagnuolo hasn’t done too bad a job, but in a regular division he would be in 3rd or maybe last.

 

2. Seattle Seahawks (6-6)

Coach: Pete Carroll

Firing Rating: 5

Why: Carroll hasn’t been all too spectacular, at times still looking like a college coach, but in such a bad division, he’s been very lucky to stay alive.

 

3. San Francisco 49ers (4-8)

Coach: Mike Singletary

Firing Rating: 7

Why: Singletary has made some questionable decisions, and it looked like he wasn’t made to be a head coach.

 

4. Arizona Cardinals

Coach: Ken Whisenhunt

Firing Rating: 8

Why: The 49ers don’t look like a team and Whisenhunt’s firing seems long overdue.
