Nagy
Zimmer
Judge

are pretty much a lock IMO. It seems like firings pretty much happen at the end of the day Sunday as opposed to Monday morning.

I think Carroll likely retires before the Seahawks fire him.

Saw on the ESPN crawl that Rhule is returning. I think Culley is safe too. And Rivera isn't going anywhere, he has no qb, it's not his fault.

Vic Fangio is another guy who is a goner. I think Carroll stays but he may retire; he's not getting fired that's for sure.

According to CBS Sports website Mike Zimmer is done as Vikings HC.

They need to bring in a defensive minded coach and not one who sticks his nose up Kirk Cousins ass.

If the Vikings ever win a Super Bowl, or even get to one, with Cousins it won't be because of him. Just because teams sometimes win a SB with a ho-hum QB (Dilfer, Johnson, Peyton Manning in 2015) doesn't mean it is a wise move to try and build around one. The Vikes will need that kind of amazing defense that most of these other teams had, that's for sure.

Iím ready for the Zimmer era to be over.

Cousins is meh, but definitely top 15 if not 10, so I think you need to keep him unless you somehow upgrade the position. Might still have a window with that pretty stacked offense, and a better defensive system/coaching/couple more pieces there.

Vic, Zimmer, and Nagy were my selections earlier this morning.

I have no idea about Joe Judge. He should be gone, but doesn't seem like the Maras are going to do it.

I don't see any of the others being fired this week.

Re: Black Monday 2021 season - Which NFL coach will likely be fired?

Some of these NFL franchises not only need to replace their head coach, but actually need a through clean house and start over as well. Namely, Jacksonville, Chicago, Houston, NY Giants, and Vegas. But most likely nothing will happen, which is why these teams are where they are to begin with. I really do not know much about the Carolina front office, but based on them turning to Sam Darnold as their future franchise QB is already a huge strike against them. Jacksonville, Houston, and Las Vegas still have the ousted head coach's hand picked bobo holding top executive positions, why? Every time Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace have joint press conferences they will repeatedly use the buzz words "communication" and "collaboration" no-stop, and this is the fruit of their extensive collaboration. Yet, there is some reporting that says Ryan Pace might yet be retained in the organization after 7 years as a failed GM because he's "well liked" by the ownership and gets to choose his replacement...

I think Culley will be given another year, One of the things he had to deal with this year was the whole Deshaun Watson mess and he didn't have a good starting QB on his roster. Once the Texans dump Watson, maybe they can actually plan a direction.

Pete will definitely be allowed to retire instead of getting fired. Even just winning one game has helped dampen the fire a bit, but Iím still expecting that they make some kind of big change of direction this offseason.

Culley should get fired, but he's been given a vote of confidence and is expected to return. Guy is in WAY over his head. Game management is atrocious, the offensive scheme is awful (he has an offensive background) and he inexplicably says his OC is coming back

I don't know or care much about NFL football, but I hear lots of locals who are done with Zimmer and Cousins. The editorial pages have been pretty lit up against Cousins, in particular.

Regardless of how the fans feel about Cousins, they will be stuck with him for one last year as his salary is already 100% guaranteed. Plus, the dead cap hit is $45 million if they try to off load him...

Now that's an off-the-radar firing. 9-8 with that team and you get fired?

They must have a big replacement nearly set up - hearing rumors of Jim Harbaugh.

Most of the in the know guys say that won't happen. Ross won't hurt Michigan since he is an alum. At least that is that the speculation is.

Also firing Flores over the GM, who took Tua over Herbert, is laughable.

Yesterday's Bears/Vikings game was truly leadership by dead men walking
