Still a week to go and all that playoff hoopla, but for twenty teams the off season is only five days away...and that means it's time to place your bets on the annual head coach unemployment derby. With two already down there are people talking record breaker, with maybe double digit firings...but I think they are double dipping and considering the "firings" of Philbin in Green Bay and Williams in Cleveland in their counts. Still, even counting the Browns and the Packers just once each eight seems like a very valid number, so I'd set the over/under at seven and a half. Interim coaches might keep those jobs, so I'd say the surest opening in the league is in Denver. The Broncos clearly quit on national television on Monday, against the hated and puny Raiders no less, so Vance Joseph is toast. Dirk Koetter in Tampa is widely viewed as being on the hottest hot seat, but I think it is possible that he and Jamis Winston get one more chance. Firing Koetter would pretty much mean giving up on Winston, and I think Tampa has invested so much in him that they almost can't give up until his contract actually runs out. Wilkes in Arizona certainly hasn't shown anything, and Todd Bowles with the Jets hasn't either. If the world is right and I'm wrong on Koetter that gets us to six already. So, one more to threaten the over and two to win with it...and so many possibles... Marvin Lewis is yet again a possibility. That guy holds the record for number of seasons ending with a coach expecting to be fired though, so who knows? Adam Gace in Miami...does a miracle win over the Patriots count enough to keep him? And here again, does firing him mean giving up on Tannehill? Jay Gruden doesn't deserve to get fired for finishing the season with a fourth quarterback and a bunch of strangers coming together to play on the line...but ownership in Washington is notoriously short tempered and short sighted, so maybe. Doug Marrone could be fired in J'ville. High expectations and a really bad season can make a short leash. The collapse of the Panthers could put an end to Ron Rivera. Another epic playoff collapse could turn things around for Jason Garrett, and the Seahawks are just the team to do it to him. So, that's first thing to consider for the off-season...then we can start thinking about quarterback roulette and the draft. I'm taking the under on the coach thing, by the way. Seven seems like a lock, but seven is a lot.
