There’s an old adage in specialist sports which coaches are hired to be fired, along with the seemingly endless rotating door of coaching jobs in the NFL has once again put a litany of seat supervisors in new places entering the 2019 season. If it comes to odds on which man will get terminated , Washington Redskins??coach Jay Gruden tops the list.
Gruden is the +300 preferred at BetOnline ??to get his walking papers, together with Pat Shurmur (+700), Matt Patricia (+1000), Bill O’Brien (+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.
Ever since he first took the reins??in 2014, Gruden’s Redskins have made the playoffs just once, when Washington finished first in the NFC East at 9-7 SU in 2015 before dropping the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round.
The beginner quarterback-running back combo of Dwayne Haskins and Derrius Guice has supplied’Skins fans with purpose for hope for your future, but it may be insufficient to save Gruden’s job if Washington has a tough start to the campaign. With holes throughout the roster on both sides of the ball, that is a realistic chance in D.C.
Remaining in the NFC East, the New York Giants have been set to start life with no Odell Beckham Jr., but the Giants could certainly find themselves in an identical situation to the Redskins. General manager Dave Gettleman’s decision to pick Duke quarterback Daniel Jones together using the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft raised eyebrows during the group, and things got even stranger when he said he would not mind sitting Jones behind Eli Manning for multiple seasons.
Given Manning’s recent performance, it’s hard to think he’ll turn back the clock at 38, so it may be another long season for Big Blue. Shurmur looks as a capable coach, but the lack of ability on offense might finally doom him if necessary after more sputters under centre.
The coming of Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia in the Motor City in 2018 was hailed as a wonderful hire at the moment, but the Lions didn’t scare anyone last year and finished the season well out of the playoffs in 6-10. Detroit’s roster appears better after some significant offseason additions, and while I am not anticipating the Lions to compete at the NFC North, I think they’ll be good enough to keep the Bill Belichick disciple in his position for the time being.
