JR is starting to look very smart when he decided to keep Rivera just one more year.

I was glancing over the list of all 32 teams at work today, one thing that hasnt been brought up yet and is a silver lining in my book is the fact that it appears as though not many other teams will be firing their HC after this season. Why does this matter? Its because there wont be much competition among a lot of teams in hiring a new HC which works to our advantage. Furthermore, the teams that do look as though will fire their HC this season arent big market teams that would be highly desireable for HC candidates. Here is a list of the teams that could possibly fire their HC after this season.

Im going to rate each team's chances of parting with their HC as strongly likely, somewhat likely and not likely on who I think gets fired after the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers- Mike Tomlin isnt going anywhere, he will get another year and be given the benefit of the doubt. Playoff and SB appearances buys this kind of leverage for a HC like this to stick around another year despite a abysmal season. Todd Haley's future as a OC for the Steelers on the other hand look bad and expect him to be the sacrificial lamb. Chances Mike Tomlin gets fired; Not Likely.

New York Giants- See Steelers above. Two Super Bowls in the last 5 years, multiple playoff appearances. Unless Coughlin retires hes not going anywhere. Chances Tom Coughlin gets fired; Not Likely.

Tennesse Titans- The future was looking bright for the Titans before. Locker went down with injury. Mike. Munchak was hired the same year as Rivera and much like Rivera last season, it took days for the Titans owner to decided Munchak would come back another year. I dont see the Titans come out of this season with a winning record and into the playoffs. Chances Munchak gets fired; Strongly likely.

Jacksonville Jaguars- Gus Bradley and the new GM are rebuilding the old fashion way and I imagine both Gus and Kleim have a gentleman's agreement that Gus wont go anywhere no matter what considering this is his first year as HC for a franchise in a deep rebuild, he wont go anywhere. Chances Gus Bradley gets fired; Not Likely.

Tampay Bay Buccaneers- Ahh the Sideshow circus that is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Its sink or swim over in Tampa Bay and now Glennon and Greg Schiano are joined at the hip. The players hate Schiano and this team is going nowhere fast with Schiano at the helm. Chances Greg Schiano gets fired; Strongly likely.

Minnesota Vikings- Despite the Vikings having a disappointing season so far I highly dobut Frazier gets fired coming off a suprising 10-6 season with his star RB winning MVP all this despite Christian Ponder under center. Chances Leslie Frazier gets fired; Not likely.

As it stands now, the only HCs I see as almost a lock to get fired (Besides Ron Rivera ofcourse) is Mike Munchak and Greg Schiano. Two other HCs that could be let go are Mike Shanahan and Dennis Allen. I dont think Shanahan goes anywhere because of RGIII and coming off a 9-7 playoff season last season. Looking back, we all wanted Rivera fired last season. But considering how last season saw a record amount of HC openings, it seems like now JR waited a week to make his decision because he was testing the market.

JR knew with desireable, big market teams like San Diego, Philly and Chicago having HC openings last season that the Panthers would be at a competitve disadvantage and it definately appears JR will have more leverage and less competition after this season and can really entice a good HC candidate due to the fact that a lot less desireable teams than us will have HC openings this go around.

regarding your post, it's stupid because jerry's missing out on 2013's top coaching candidates because of competition would not be negated by not going after anyone at all (because he'd obviously still have none of them.) if this was his rationale he literally has the critical thinking skills of a fetus.

 

however it was not his rationale and i'm beginning to think you have the critical thinking skills of a fetus instead

That makes no sense. You really think it took JR one week ti make up his mind because he was on the fence and indecisive? Come on. JR knew Chicago, Philly and San Diego would be more desireable locations so he risked losing out on a good candidate and potentially beong forced to hire someone of lesser quality because he missec out on the guy he wanted to a bigger market like Chicago, San Diego or Philly.

After this seaspn ot will be more of a even playing field with us, Tampa Bay and Tennesse.

Here all this time I thought he was just being a cheapskate and not wanting to pay two head coaches at the same time.

 

This is a relief. Glad you cleared it up for us.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
