|Hue Jackson is 1-28 leading the Browns, and it's tough to see a coach surviving that. He insists he hasn't lost the owners' confidence, and the owners are not talking about the situation. But Jimmy Haslam stood up strongly Bobby Baun Jersey
for Jackson before the season. An 0-12 record since, though, puts stresses on that stance -- except nobody could expect this season's team, as built, to win many games. Given Haslam's belief in Jackson, it would not be a surprise if he stayed. But http://www.officialbroncosfootball.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JARED_CRICK_JERSEY.html given the record, it would not be a surprise if he left. -- Pat McManamon
Chuck Pagano survived back-to-back 8-8 seasons, missing the playoffs both times. But the end is in sight after six seasons as the Colts' coach. Pagano was assured his first losing season at the helm in Indianapolis when the Colts lost to Jacksonville in Week 13. Last January, owner Jim Irsay would only guarantee that Pagano would coach this season, despite him being under contract in 2018 and 2019. Pagano has gone from leading the Colts to the playoffs in his first three seasons, to likely not making the postseason in his final three. -- Mike Wells
The Bucs finished 9-7 last year in Dirk Koetter's first season as head coach, but at 4-8 and having been outscored 81-33 in three NFC South games, things aren't looking good. What's worse Joel Armia Womens Jersey is that the Bucs have averaged less than 20 points a game in the three years Koetter has been calling plays and have averaged 18.5 points in 2017, despite being loaded with weapons. By comparison,
when http://www.minnesotawildofficialonline.com/Adidas-Ryan-Suter-Jersey former Bucs offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford had to take a leave of absence in 2014, first-time coordinator Marcus Arroyo's offense was averaging 16 points a game. Does some of that fall on quarterback Jameis Winston's shoulder injury? Sure. But the previous coaching staff didn't get any rope when their defensive line was decimated by injuries, or when their best player on defense at the time, linebacker Kwon Alexander, was issued a four-game suspension. The Bucs lost all four of those remaining games. -- Jenna Laine
Jason Garrett was named Coach of the Year just a year ago after directing the Cowboys to a 13-3 finish with a rookie quarterback and rookie running back. But Dallas has been one of the bigger disappointments in 2017 with a 6-6 record. Losing Ezekiel Elliott to a six-game suspension hurts, but the Cowboys had months to prepare for his absence, and the offense fell apart during a three-game losing streak when the defense needed it most. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has publicly backed the coaches -- and not in a vote-of-confidence kind of way.
In 2015, Garrett was able to withstand a 4-12 finish with then-quarterback Tony Romo missing 12 games. Every team http://www.authenticnikegiantshop.com/Phil-Simms-Jersey every year loses players somehow, and the good ones answer the challenge. Will Jones be as kind if the Cowboys collapse in their final four games? -- Todd Archer
The Broncos have never fired a coach who started and finished just one season with the team, so history says Vance Joseph would get a chance to help clean up the mess of 2017. But with nine losses in the past 10 games -- including eight in a row, and four by at least 20 points -- it's unclear how the organization would react if Joseph closed out the season with four losses. Part of the Broncos'
issues right now is they have no clear plan regarding what kinds of players they want for what kinds of schemes they want, on either side of the ball. To change coaches again certainly wouldn't help clear up the vision, but public opinion has affected the team's thinking at times. Four more losses could put Broncos general manager John Elway and president/CEO Joe Ellis in a position where they feel like they "have to do" something. -- Jeff Legwold
Bill O'Brien has one year left on Authentic Martin Hanzal Jersey his contract, so the Texans will likely sign him to an extension early in the offseason, or he and the team will part ways. O'Brien hasn't made injuries an excuse this season, but it would have been hard for the Texans to overcome losing quarterback Deshaun Watson, defensive end J.J. Watt, linebacker Whitney Mercilus and running back D'Onta Foreman, regardless of who the head coach was. O'Brien is on the warm seat, but I think general manager Rick Smith and owner Bob McNair will bring O'Brien back. -- Sarah Barshop
Todd Bowles http://www.nashvillepredatorsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Pk-Subban-Jersey is hovering between 3 and 4. Despite already winning five games, he has continued to facilitate the team's move in the right direction in what began as a rebuilding year. The Jets have been competitive in all but one game, and many of their young players are showing signs of development. Bowles has changed the Stanley Cup Jersey culture in the locker room, eliminating the stink from last year. Still, the job isn't done yet. Ownership is looking for an upbeat finish to the season. -- Rich Cimini
