We could see a year with one of the most jobs at stake that I can remember. Off the top of my head

AFC East:
- Miami- you have to believe that seat is hot.

AFC West:
-Denver- obvious new coach
-San Diego- I don't think it will happen, but anything is possible in the NFL.

AFC North:
-Browns- they are improved, but there is always a revolving coaching door in Cleveland
Cincinati- see Denver

AFC South:
-Tennessee- Jeff Fisher is GONE. If he isn't fired, he'll take his option.
-Jacksonville- They had a good year, but Del Rio has been on the hot seat for the past 4 years
-Houston- no playoff births

NFC East:
New York Giants- Coughlin will resign/retire or get fired if they don't win next week (and/or if they get embarrassed in the first round)
Dallas- Still a question mark, I think Garrett gets the job

NFC Mess, I mean West
:
San Fransisco- see Denver
Cardinals- originally I hS never thought about this, and I still don't think Wisenhunt will be fired, but this team is pretty bad. This one goes in the San Diego "anything can happen in the NFL" category.

NFC North:
Minnesota- I'm back and forth on this one. Theres a good chance Fraizer is retained, but for some reason I think he could bounce.

NFC South:
Carolina- see Denver, Cincy and San Fran.

So by my count, that is 14 possible changes. Should make for a interesting 2011.

Oakland, Detroit and Buffalo aren't out of the realm of possibility either.

true, i gave them all the benefit of the doubt because of improvements, but as I said, anything can happen in the NFL.

My only hope is the Panthers move quickly before quality candidates are taken off the board.
But I expect static out of BOFA and little movement early as other teams lock up their head coaches. :(

the Chargers are eliminated from the playoffs after the loss so Norv's seat is hotter than it's ever been

I'm not sure though that AJ Smith's ego will allow him to fire the man he replaced Marty Schottenheimer with just yet.

I got a DM from Schefter saying he didn't like Wisenhunt was in trouble bc of the extension. I never thought hed be moved, but I put it out there anywhere.

Unless Dean overrides AJ, like he did with Marty. Maybe Norv will try and test the nepotism hiring waters.

Yep, Norv ain't going anywhere:

So, when Spanos, who has been in charge of the franchise since father Alex handed him the wheel in 1994, says head coach Norv Turner and General Manager A.J. Smith will return in 2011, he almost seems incredulous, amazed that he has to be asked.
Public opinion aside, it’s his team to run. Turner and Smith will return. This is not an election ticket. One vote matters.
“I’ve learned the hard way,” Spanos said. “Your GM and coach have to be two individuals who work together. It’s very difficult for some teams; I’ve been through it. I like the working relationship at this level.
“We’re as disappointed as anyone. But I look to 1996 to 2003, when we couldn’t even get (beyond) 8-8. We’ve turned it around, to where we’re a good team and a good organization. There’s a lot of continuity, but we’re still short.
“The easiest thing in the world is to start over. Who the hell do I go hire? Blow the whole thing up? We’re a pretty good team but we have to make the right moves. We’ve fallen. It could have been our draft picks or our free-agent moves. But we have a good core, and I don’t care what anybody says. I’m not afraid to make changes. If I thought it was warranted, I would do it. We have a good foundation here.”
