|prolific offense and were a game away from the Super Bowl. Since 2015, they've won just 12 games in the past two years while the offense has struggled not only to move the ball, but to score. It's not all Bruce Arians' fault.
He's working without his starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, and star running back, David Johnson. However, if the Cardinals have a major meltdown in the last four games, the question of replacing Arians should be taken seriously. Otherwise, he'll be safe for at least another season, should he decide to return. -- Josh Weinfuss
Dan Quinn guided the Falcons all the way to the Super Bowl in his second season a year ago. Although that early success certainly pleased owner Arthur Blank, Blank isn't content with being a runner-up. He wants a title, especially after the Falcons came so close before blowing a 28-3 lead against New England. If Dorian Johnson Jersey the Falcons miss the playoffs this season, it won't cost Quinn his job. But if things http://www.devilsteamproshop.com/Miles_Wood_Jersey start to spiral down moving forward, he's not immune to Blank's wrath. -- Vaughn McClure
Any perceived heat for John Harbaugh has been reduced since the Ravens put themselves in prime position for their seventh playoff berth in 10 seasons under him. Harbaugh has always had strong public support from owner Steve Bisciotti, even after Baltimore missed out on the postseason the past two years. "I'm lucky to have a leader like him," Bisciotti said in August. But there will be increased scrutiny surrounding Harbaugh if the Ravens fall apart in the final four games like they did in
This is a tough question about Jim Caldwell, and it's something of a yearly ritual. This season is http://www.patriotsnflofficialonline.com/Drew-Bledsoe-Jersey a bit more difficult to gauge, and if I could put it at a 3.5, I would. A playoff appearance should mean he's safe, and even a 10-6 record with no playoff appearance should mean he's fine. Without knowing the length of his contract extension, it's tough to say what a 9-7 record or worse would mean for his job status. He does not seem to be as safe as he was six weeks ago, though. -- Michael
On one hand, Jack Del Rio just signed a four-year contract extension in the offseason after leading the Raiders to a 12-4 record and their first playoff appearance since 2002. On the other, the Raiders are one of -- if not the most -- disappointing teams in the NFL this season. At 6-6, they're still in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West, but owner Mark Davis -- while not as impetuous as his late father Al, who ran through nine head coaches from 1995 through 2011 -- is not exactly in a great mood. As Del Rio himself said after firing defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. two weeks ago, nobody in the organization should be comfortable. -- Paul G6)
This could get bumped up a notch if Ted Thompson retires -- or is forced to retire -- but the 64-year-old GM still has more than a year left on his contract. The Packers are not a shake-it-up organization, and that comes from the top in team president Mark Murphy. And even if the Packers did hire a new GM, there's a decent chance it would come from in-house (or someone who once worked in-house), where Mike McCarthy has strong support. -- Rob Demovsky
After opening the season 0-4, Anthony Lynn's Chargers have won six of their past eight games and are tied atop the AFC West. So even if the Chargers were to fall flat in the last four games, it would be hard to believe the front office would move on from the first-year head coach. Lynn's job should be safe heading into 2018. -- Eric D.
This was a "prove-it" year for Doug Pederson, and so far he has proven to be far better than most anticipated, even budding into a candidate for Coach of the Year. With the Eagles exceeding expectations and holding the league's best record for most of the season, Pederson has certainly earned at least another year barring total self-destruction down the stretch. -- Justin Patton Youth jersey Tim McManus
The Titans are 17-11 Michael Hoomanawanui Womens Jersey since Mike Mularkey took over as full-time head coach before the 2016 season. That's tied with Philadelphia's Doug Pederson for the best record among the seven 2016 head coach hires. Mularkey is on his way to leading the Titans to their first playoff berth since 2008. The offense hasn't lived up to some of its high expectations, but barring a total collapse or aggressive desire for change, Mularkey should be safe. Currently in year two of a three-year deal, he's much more likely to get an extension than to be fired. -- Cameron Wolfe
