    I'm torn between Jack Del Rio or Tony Sparano as far as being fired first.

    I might lean towards Del Rio. The Dolphins don't seem to care about the remainder of the season and know they suck and know they need a new coach so they'll wait until the offseason to fire Sparano.

    For the Eagles, I think firing long time head coach is a bit of a risk and he doesn't seem willing to leave so I think he'll stay at least the rest of the season.

    I feel like if the Dolphins were to fire Sparano, it would have been before their bye week.

    Didn't Sparano just get a "vote of confidence" from ownership? Yeah yeah, that's like JO guaranteeing to come out and dominate every year, but still.

    I hope Brian Billick gets a head coaching job somewhere.

    I always felt he was a very good head coach.

    He'd do well in Miami.

    Spagnuolo(Rams coach)

    The Dolphins are in the running for Luck at least with Sparano they have a shot they'll dump him at the end of the season.

    Del Rio? They're surprisingly still in the division hunt

    Eagles? Same thing

    If they do fire Steve Spags we should get him as a D coordinator.

    Andy Reid please. He should have been fired a few seasons ago, then Michael Vick saved his ***. The team can't play a complete game, seem unprepared, lack discipline on the field... The entire culture seems wrong and that starts at the top. And for a guy who used to be an o-lineman, its embarrassing to see how terrible our o-line is. His constant ignoring of the linebacker core has reached an all time worst as well.

    Oh and making a guy who was an o-line coach the new defensive coordinator, even though he hadn't coached defense since his high school coaching days, was a pretty dumb move too.

    There is no reason this team should be 1-4. Even with the o-line and LB problems, they always seem to have a turnover or penalty at the worst time. And the redzone offense and defense have gotten worse. Oh and he still doesn't run the ball enough even though the o-line is actually good at run blocking and McCoy is a very good RB.

    Last year Andy was able to get everyone look the other way as we all expected a down year and then Vick exploded.

    This team could easily be 5-0, but instead we sit at 1-4 and its embarrassing. But he won't be fired during the season just because of his past with the team.

    Del Rio should have been fired years ago. He's the only coach dumb enough to get his own 15yard penalty for unsportsman-like conduct sandwiched inbetween two other 15yd penalties in a game that's up in the air.

    He's been down right awful for years.


    Hopefully they don't fire him, but they should.

    After game 9, hello Jim Tressel, head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    It would be absurd to fire him now at the end of the season yes he should go.

    But this division is still winnable considering the NFC East isn't great to begin with.

    Ride this out then fire Reid and get a decent draft pick.
