Childress, Lovie, Phillips and Fox are toast at the end of the year.

McDaniels won't be going anywhere. He's only in year 2 of a 4 year contract and a complete roster and schematic overhaul, plus Bowlen is a very patient owner. He's safe for now.

Reports are coming out of Minnesota that the players are turning against Childress. He's probably done for after this season.

Highly doubt Wade Phillips is given another year by Jerry Jones.

I'm not sure about Lewis.

It's playoffs or die for Lovie. Jay Cutler is a pretty big handicap to the playoff dream so Lovie should probably start packing his bags.

Shanahan's safe for now, although if he keeps pulling these stupid stunts he might not last much longer.

Turner is probably safe for another year if they make a playoff run.

Whisenhunt is safe. Despite the down year, he's had the Cardinals competitive for the first time since the Jake Plummer days.

Ok folks, who's next? I think John Fox should be put out of his misery.

No offense, but... no need to read the rest.

Yes you did! Congrats. I picked a sentimental fav, so no fair. I already gave you a rep, so maybe some others can follow suit.

No, it will still go for a while. Not that I like to see anyone get fired, Wade won't be the last.

. . .it was not a matter of who, but when, nice guy Wade, but he should have been canned last season. . . 3rd string quarterback Garrett can't even talk a good game

I really like Wade Phillips and how he handled himself... albeit in desparation lately. It's no fun when you lose and oh so fun when you win.

In Denver, I think he was a pretty good defensive coordinator, if I remember right.

I don't especially care whether the Cowboys win or lose, but I hope he lands somewhere.

Being nice was Wade's biggest flaw. You have to have discipline, and he didn't. I'd rather have a prick for a head coach.
