Default Next Coach to Get the Axe?

We're getting into coach firing territory now. Fans are restless. Owners getting harassed. Players disgruntled. Who's the next to get the axe?

I'm going with Norv. Spanos will probably toss in AJ Smith as well. That Broncos' beating was the last straw.

Reid

Turner has excuses, and they don't gain anything from firing him.
Coughlin still has hope
Sparano has the fish playing pretty well
Spags is faltering, but will outlast Reid
Caldwell should have been fired, but losing Pumpkinhead, and the firing of Coyer tell me he gets a pass

I think Cardwell, Spagnuolo, Sparano and Norv all get **** canned at the end of season. Reid and Coughlin stay around.

Andy Reid is def most deserving.

I say, Norv (but not AJ), and Caldwell go at seasons end... Sparano might make it if they continue playing well. Reid will stay, remarkably.

Norv is gone. AJ too, probably.

Caldwell is gone.

Reid is likely gone, though we've buried him several times now.

Spags will get another year, I think.

Sparano... he deserves a better organization than the Dolphins, honestly, and I hope he does well wherever he ends up.

To be fair to Reid, it was the media that hyped Philly to be the "dream team". I still wouldn't be shocked if he's shown the door, though...

Agree, but they have way too much talent to not be considerably better. And they've made some really horrendously stupid decisions. It's notable that one of their bad decisions is the Broncos gain: they hired their D-line coach Jim Washburn before hiring a D-coordinator. So the candidates they brought in, including Dennis Allen, didn't want to work in a situation where they were forced to use Washburn's wide 9 alignment. They couldn't find a taker so they made their O-line coach their D coordinator, to disasterous results. And then they run a system that demands stong linebacker play and that's their weakest position which they ignored in FA. They drafted Casey Matthews and stuck him in as starter and he couldn't play for sh*t. They sign Asomugha to huge money and put him in a zone. They have one of the best RB's in the league and they frequently under utilize him. Just one stupid thing after another.

Definitely Norv. AJ should be fired too. I still can't believe that he fired a 14-2 coach to hire a guy to come in and drive their franchise into the ground.

Coughlin then Norv. Caldwell would have been canned with Larry yesterday if it was going to happen sooner than later. Dolphins playing better now so I think he is safe.

i say Norv makes it to the end of the year and is then promptly fired and quite possibly their GM as well.

i am going with a dark horse candidate to be fired.

I was thinking Tebow might be a coach killer: the idiot in Mia, Haley, Rex and Norv (-:

I went with Norv, but really think Haley could get the axe to open the door for McD in KC. I just see that organization ready to go with the ridiculous.

Well I think that several on the list will be fired, but for who goes first, I think Caldwell could go before the season is out. Just something to wake the team up so they dont go winless but still safely get Luck. Everyone else survives the season.

I went with Norv. The Eagles DC will probably be out before Reid. Maybe Josh McDaniels will get the axe again?

McCheat and that "high powered" offense he's such a "genius" with might very well get Spagnuolo fired making him not only a franchise, draft, talent, quarterback, honesty, integrity, class, dignity, and video tape coordinator killer but a coach killer as well.
