We are just over the halfway point of the NFL season and we have already witnessed two head coaches lose their jobs. Carolina fired Matt Rhule in early October after the Panthers got off to a 1-4 start. Earlier this NFL week the Indianapolis Colts followed suit and fired Frank Reich, their coach since 2018.
With the season only being halfway done, we are sure to see a couple more coaching vacancies by the end of the year. With 17 teams with a losing NFL record (that’s right, more than half) and scoring down across the league, we may see a large coaching turnover in the NFL offseason. I’m gonna go over a couple coaches who maybe looking for a new job come next spring.
Nathaniel Hackett seemed like the ideal hiring for an NFL Denver Broncos franchise that was going through transition. Hackett seemed like a safe bet who may also come with Aaron Rodgers, the perfect way to raise the price on the NFL franchise right before it was sold in the offseason.
Hackett is not having the best start to his head coaching career. The Broncos currently have a 3-5 NFL record and are failing to live up to the expectations set for them when they acquired Russell Wilson in one of the bigger trade packages in NFL history. The offensively minded Hackett is having major issues as his squad ranks 30th in the league in points per game and has ranks last in red zone offense. Many speculated that Hackett would be jobless had the Broncos lost to Jacksonville prior to their bye. It’s not hard to imagine seeing Hackett’s departure prior to the end of the season if things don’t turn around in Denver.
The Raiders came out to a fast start last week against Jacksonville, scoring 20 in the first half. Then the Raiders failed to score any points in the second half as the Jags would win a 27-20 comeback win. This is not the first time the Raiders have blown a sizable lead this season; who can forget the game against Arizona early on in the season?
Vegas is just not living up to what the roster is on paper. The acquisition of Davante Adams in the offseason was supposed to help Derek Carr, who still looks average at best, all while failing to utilize Josh Jacobs enough, who easily could elevate some stress off the passing game if he got more touches. Who is behind this uninspired offense? Josh McDaniels the supposed offensive genius who hasn’t been able to see the same success as a head coach as he had in New England as a coordinator. Sitting at the bottom of the AFC West at an abysmal 2-6, it would be hard to justify keeping McDaniels around for another season if the Raiders don’t start finding a way to close out wins.
