Even when you’re an informal fan of the NFL, you possibly can appreciate that there isn’t must margin for error if you’re a coach. With the season being just 18 weeks long, the margin for error is slim as teams battle it out for a playoff spot. With that in mind, we’re taking a have a look at which coaches are on the recent seat right here and now after 11 weeks of motion.
Nathaniel Hackett is now a ‘When not If’ situation
The longer term of Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett now seems set to follow the identical route as former Panthers coach Matt Rhule and former Colts coach Frank Reich. That’s to say, just like the two former coaches, Hackett is kind of definitely about to be dismissed from his post. There was hope that after their Week 9 bye things can be turned around, but Denver has now lost two straight following their break which brings them to a record of 3-7, last within the AFC West and virtually no probability of creating the playoffs. Yet, it’s not only the indisputable fact that they’ve been losing, but relatively the best way by which they’ve which is the actual concern. The Broncos have didn’t rating at the least 20 points in nine of 11 games this season Hackett on the helm. Indeed, they’re now 3-6 in games decided by seven points or fewer. Not a superb search for a coach who has been described as offensive minded.
They really going to make us suffer through seven more weeks of the Nathaniel Hackett era?
Give the keys to Dom Capers and allow us to all move on. Fresh start Monday!

“We’ve been so close, we’ve had so many opportunities. We’ve had quite a lot of things occur this 12 months which can be unlucky. But we now have to repeatedly find ways to win. That’s my sole purpose, that’s all I’m seeking to do,” Hackett told reporters after Sunday’s loss. With that, the clocking is ticking on Hackett’s tenure in Denver, but we will’t imagine it’s going to be doing so for for much longer.
Which other NFL coaches are on the Hot Seat?
Lovie Smith (hotter)
With a record of 1-8, a struggling quarterback and a run defense that has holes to say the least, the Texans and their coach are in a nasty way in the mean time. Indeed, Smith has done himself no favors in Houston and is most definitely now facing the opportunity of getting the axe. The Texans’ front office has already shown a willingness to fireplace a coach after one 12 months, as they did once they replaced David Culley with Smith, so we now have no reason to consider they won’t do it again. Add to that, the concept that they may find a way to draft for a franchise QB in the approaching 12 months and also you’ve got yourself a scenario where they may likely go after a younger more offensive-minded coach.
After the Texans fall to 1-8-1 at home, Lovie Smith was asked about potential changes where he had an *interesting* forwards and backwards.

Josh McDaniels (colder)
To his credit, McDaniels was capable of avoid the chopping block for one more week, while concurrently condemning Nathaniel Hackett after he spearheaded a revenge victory and season sweep of the Broncos. Whether he can proceed to avoid wasting his skin, with games against the Seahawks and Chargers coming up stays to be seen.
Report: The explanation the #Raiders won’t fire Josh McDaniels is financial – “They haven’t got the cash to fireplace him.”
The team is “money poor” and may’t afford to fireplace McDaniels after which pay one other coach, based on @BillPlaschke

Kliff Kingsbury (hotter)
Though the Cardinals did manage to beat the Rams in Week 10, we’ve got a sense that moment of joy is about to be snuffed out, once they tackle the 49ers in a “home” game in Mexico City. In the mean time, their offense is missing several key players and to make matters worse they’ve got games against the Chargers and Patriots coming. Kingsbury will need to look at where he sits.
Kliff Kingsbury is just not equipped to be a frontrunner of men within the NFL. Never has been. He only goes so far as his talent does. That is not coaching. That is riding within the passenger seat.

Kevin Stefanski (hotter)
Stefanksi took the Browns to an AFC wild-card berth and subsequent playoff victory just two seasons ago, nevertheless it’s clear lots has happened since then. While he ought to be credited for constructing an offense around Jacoby Brissett within the absence of Deshaun Watson, the defense has been a problem that has plagued the Browns. Though they picked up a win over the Bengals on Monday night, it’s clear that the Browns are a team heading downhill at speed.
Kevin Stefanski’s offense, w/ Jacoby Brissett is averaging the fifth most yards per game (375.9) and the tenth most points per game (24.1)
Meanwhile Joe Woods’ defense is giving up the sixteenth most yards per game (349.1) and giving up the 2nd…yes SECOND, most points per game (26.4)
