I don't see Lovie going anywhere even if they falter down the stretch against a more difficult line-up.

My prediction is that Childress is gone after the Bears drop the Vikes to 3-6 and end their remote chance of a playoff run.

Brad Childress was fired 11/22/2010

Next in line, (lord willin) John Fox. Though he has kept this team playing, we should give Ron Meeks a chance.

I think Marvin Lewis is the next to go. Way too much talent on that team to have the record they do.

I think it's hillarious that the Bears are leading NFC North and most likely are playoff bound but yet Lovie Smith is on here with a few votes....

But I think he lasts the season. His contract is up.

They need to fire the guy in charge of the NFL.

I was thinking about this thread earlier today....

Even though we now know who was the first head coach (HC) fired, I think it's not so much which HC had the worst performance, as several teams did, but it seems more like which OWNER has the least tolerance for failure, shortest fuse, biggest ego to win, etc.

Secondarily, were all 3 of those owners chomping at the bit to fire their HC, but none wanted to be first to pull the trigger and thus admit defeat or face heat for hiring a bad coach?

Once Dallas pulled the trigger, the flood gates opened and now 3 HC's are fired in mid-season. I'm not sure I recall that many HC's being canned during the season. Anyone have a better memory than mine?

Now admittedly, the list may not be complet enough. For example, Mike Singletary is not on the list. I also didn't give the option "other". But I think this list is inclusive enough to hit the mark.

So... who gets canned first?

Josh is OUT...yiiippppeeee

Mike is right. I've followed the NFL for decades and I don't ever recall this many coaches going down, at least during the season anyway. I'm gonna jog the old memory banks to see if I can come up with something comparable here.
