Congratulations to the Jaguars and Bucs on their first wins of the season! But be careful with that win column, dear Florida teams, as the Vikings are also dangerously bad. I’d hate for you to spoil your draft position just for the brief high you get from this:
It’s right about that time that we need to take a serious look at our hot seat watch and consider removing some names. We’ve stated multiple times that it’s much harder to get out of the hot seat than it is to get in it, and some of our coaches are nearing that point where they’re probably safe, barring some otherworldly collapse and/or locker room breakdown.

I tracked 36 instances in NFL history of a team that lost 14 or more games in a single season and looked closely at the careers of the head coaches that oversaw those teams. I wanted to know how many of them survived past that season, how many were fired during the season, how many ever coached again, and possibly, if any of those coaches were any good.

Over a sample of 36 you are likely to have some exceptions, and this was no different. A few of the coaches are names that will forever hold weight in the football community as the greatest minds and leaders that the sport has ever seen. Before there were 14-game or 16-game seasons, Tom Landry went 0-11-1 during his first year as head coach of the Cowboys. He didn’t post a winning season until his seventh year as head coach. Bill Belichick was fired as coach of the Browns. Bill Parcells went 3-12-1 in his first season with the Giants.
