Which NFL Coaches Should Be Fired?

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

This poll is not scientific. It is based on readers' votes.

Tom Cable -- Raiders

He's the Raiders coach, and interim at that, which means his job security is less stable than the U.S. economy.

Romeo Crennel -- Browns

After narrowly missing the playoffs last season, Cleveland failed miserably to live up to expectations this year.

Jack Del Rio -- Jaguars

The Jaguars were supposed to contend for the AFC South title; they instead finished last.

Herm Edwards -- Chiefs

He plays to win the games, well, except for this season when the Chiefs won twice.

Jim Haslett -- Rams

It looked good for the first few games when he took over for Scott Lenihan, but not anymore.

Marvin Lewis -- Bengals

Things have gotten dramatically worse in Cincinnati since the Bengals last made the playoffs in 2005.

Rod Marinelli -- Lions

0-16. Need we say more?

Wade Phillips -- Cowboys

After losing in the playoffs last season, Dallas struggled this year despite a roster filled with Pro Bowl players.

Andy Reid -- Eagles

It's been a decade with the Eagles, and still no Super Bowl ring.

Mike Singletary -- 49ers

Dropping his pants to motivate his players may not have been the most prudent decision.

Norv Turner -- Charges

The Chargers were in the AFC championship game last season but may miss the playoffs this year.

Singletary isn't going anywhere, and, even as a big Eagles fan myself, I was saying a few weeks ago that Reid should go, but now I'm not so sure. Lewis should go, but I'm not sure he will. Same with Phillips.

First to go will be Crennel of Marinelli

Reid needs to go, but they won't fire him. It is time for a change in Philly. Marinelli will be gone as soon as the game ends. I don't get why they don't fire him now. Hasn't detroit been through enough?

I'm sure there will be some ambiguity in these discussions, as there are two separate questions. Which NFL coaches SHOULD be fired, and which NFL coaches WILL be fired.

Norv Turner has proven through the years that he alone could botch a 2 car funeral this guy has got to go.

If the Cowgirls don't make the playoffs or lose the first round game - Phillips will be gone. I'd imagine JJ has lost his patience.

Wade Phillips is done.

What about the self proclaimed worst coach in football, Zorn

Posted by: Emil Steiner | December 28, 2008 7:49 PM

Bears have no personality under Lovey Smith. If I see them show him on the sideline one more time with that "what just happened?" look on his face I'll go ballistic. Offensive and defensive coordinators need to go too.

I am a die hard raider fan but i think that tom cable should go back to his original job and let jim harbaugh give it a try and then if it dont work out then try tom cable

What? This list doesn't include Dick Jauron of the Bills? He has coached at least part of 9 years, and has had a winning record in only one of those years. He single-handily cost the Bills the game against the Cowboys in their 2007 Monday night showdown. He should be fired and never get another head coaching job (unless it's with the Cowboys). The fact that he still has a job for the 2009 season must mean the Bills organization is out of its mind.
