There is an old adage in professional sports that coaches are hired to be fired, along with training jobs in the NFLs rotating door has once more place a litany of bench supervisors. This record is topped by Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden when it comes to odds on which man will get fired .
Gruden is the +300 favorite at BetOnline ??to receive his walking papers, together with Pat Shurmur (+700), Matt Patricia (+1000), Bill OBrien (+1200), Dan Quinn (+1200), Doug Marrone (+1500), Jason Garrett (+1500), Mike Zimmer (+1500), Adam Gase (+2000) and Brian Flores (+2000) rounding out the top 10.
Grudens Redskins have made the playoffs only once, before dropping the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round when Washington finished first in the NFC East Ever since he took the reins in 2014.
The novice quarterback-running back mix of Dwayne Haskins and Derrius Guice has providedSkins fans for hope for the foreseeable future, if Washington has a tough start to the campaign, but it may be insufficient to save the occupation of Gruden. With holes across the roster on either side of the ball, that is a realistic chance in D.C.
Staying in the NFC East, the New York Giants have been set to start life without Odell Beckham Jr., however, the Giants could certainly find themselves in a similar situation to the Redskins. General manager Dave Gettlemans decision to pick Duke quarterback Daniel Jones together using the No. 6 pick from the 2019 NFL Draft raised eyebrows during the group, and things got even stranger when he said he wouldnt mind sitting Jones behind Eli Manning for numerous seasons.
Considering Manning performance, its tough to believe he will turn the clock back in 38, so it may be another long year for Big Blue. Shurmur looks as a capable coach, if Manning once more sputters under centre, but he could be eventually doomed by the lack of talent on offense.
The coming of Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia at the Motor City in 2018 was hailed as a hire at the time, however, the Lions did not frighten anyone last year and ended the season outside the playoffs at 6-10. Detroits roster appears much better after some significant offseason additions, and while I am not anticipating the Lions to contend in the NFC North, I think theyll be good to keep the Bill Belichick disciple in his own position for now.
