07:33 AM ET 09.08 | In an informal NFP poll of personnel guys, general managers and even a few owners last week, a total of eight coaches were cited as possibly being in some trouble if they don't win this season. There were a few obvious names, such as Ron Rivera of Carolina, Dallas' Jason Garrett, Jim Schwartz of Detroit, and the New York Jets' Rex Ryan. But in the wake of remarks made by Tennessee owner Bud Adams, that he had invested big money during the offseason to import talent and will be "real unhappy" if the Titans don't have a good season, several people prominently mentioned Mike Munchak as a guy who could be under scrutiny.

And how many will simply swap lawn chairs. Ryan to Dallas, Garrett to NYJ. <Otis drop kicks CI>

While you can't blame Garrett on the lack of talent he has had to work with his failure is due to the fact he cannot clean up the constant mistakes they make on the field. Dumb penalties are too abundant. B'bye Carrot!!

Let their teams at least play one game. Maybe even two. Then seat them if you must.

LMFAO - Ryan to Dallas would be perfect. Maybe even hire Burkie as an advisor. :-)

You sir... are tempting the fates.

Besides - Jerry would never hire the Dark Lord. As you may recall, Jerry has proclaimed himself GM for life.






Sadly.

And then squire Steve takes over that position.

We now return to our regular programming.

I don't any one one but a tier two coach taking a position with Dallas because a tier one coach would want to be on a team he could coach, not one that the real coach/GM is the owner while a tier two coach isn't smart enough to know that in certain cities the owner calls the shots.

Ryan is toast regardless and he knows it. Dallas needs to make the playoffs or Garrett is done. Ditto the others. Its always been win baby win.
I think the Vikes, Cleveland, Pitssburgh, coaches may be on the fence as well.

I used to have hope that Stephen would be the saving grace when Jerry was gone. But after listening to him the past two off seasons, I'm afraid that Jerry's management philosophy has trickled down.

Jerry has a management philosophy? Do tell.

Time tells all. But when daddy is gone who knows.

Tomlin should be added to this list. I haven't been impressed the last few years.

September 8, 2013  01:26 PM ET

The Steelers are up 4-0 over the Titans.
When was the last time an NFL team had a 4-0 lead, if ever?

Correction....now the last safety has been taken off the board...so the score is just 2-0.
Both ESPN and SI had the lead as 4-0.

September 8, 2013  02:16 PM ET

Yep Tomlin needs to go...welcome back cowher

September 8, 2013  02:16 PM ET

Regardless, there's at least 3 safeties today. Weird scores popping up.

I think it's safe to say they all will be fired at the end of the season.
