    2020: Coaches Fired / Hired

    Even though I was joking in another thread wondering if it was too early to start a "Coaches Watch", the Texans started it off early this year in Week 4.

    Texans fire Head Coach Bill O'Brien (Romeo Crennel will be the interim HC)

    Crennel I believe is now the oldest head coach in NFL history.

    The carousel starts to fill.

    I'm thinking I'm back.

    Crennel is now the oldest at 73... so everybody on this list should slide a spot when it's updated.

    “Papa Bear”, George Halas from the Bears was first at 72. Marv comes in at 2nd at 72 years old. I think the ranking difference comes in because Halas was "active" for 47 years vs Marv's 28.

    Re: 2020: Coaches Fired

    Bieniemy should be hired as a HC . If anyone is still looking at his skin color, then their team deserves to lose.

    Roman should get a look

    Daboll ? Not sure yet. More to be determined later if the running game is solid in the cold weather.

    Still can't believe how Gase hasn't been shooed away from the Jets with a broom.

    Re: 2020: Coaches Fired

    The Atlanta Falcons will relieve head coach Dan Quinn of his duties this week, a source told The Athletic's Jeff Schultz on Sunday.An announcement is expected Monday or Tuesday.The Falcons fell to 0-5 for the first time since 1997 with a Sunday’s 23-16 home loss to Carolina. In Weeks 2 and 3, they became the first team ever to blow 15-point fourth quarter leads in back-to-back games, leading 39-24 at Dallas and 26-10 against Chicago before losing both.Quinn is 43-42 during five-plus seasons with Atlanta. He led the Falcons to Super Bowl LI after the 2016 season, but they blew the largest lead in Super Bowl history (28-3 in the third quarter) to lose in overtime to the Patriots, 34-28.

    Arthur Blank strikes me as the kind of guy who makes you feel bad for him when you make him fire you.

    "You're fired, Dan."

    "I'm sorry, Arthur."

    "You'll get another job."

    "I know, I mean I'm sorry my incompetence drove you to this unhappy moment. I see that sad face. Smile for me. Oh, I know you want to. Better days are coming for your franchise now that I'm out the door !! Arthur.....Arrrrrthurrrrr......come on......I know that smile is there.....it's trying to come out.....you're free of me.....there...there.....THERE is that happy Arthur !!!! Here, let me give you some of your money back, you go buy an expensive ice cream and give someone a Falcon's cap !"

    GM Dimitroff booted also.

    "Arthurrrrrr......(pokes cheeks) let me see that smiley Arthur !!!, we'll go for pancakes !"


    I seriously do feel bad for Blank, sort of, but not really. We went through this for decades.

    "Oh please fire him."....."Give him another year or so....."

    Re: 2020: Coaches Fired

    I'm surprised that the coaching purge has begun so early this year, but..... 2020.

    Texans fire Bill O'Brien (Romeo Crennel will be the interim HC)
    Falcons HC Dan Quinn AND GM Thomas Dimitroff

    Falcons President Rich McKay will oversee day-to-day football operations for the remainder of the season. The team will reportedly announce an interim head coach Monday, with defensive coordinator Raheem Morris a "strong candidate," Link
