Let me start by saying that this is the worst job ever for this year, and I’m not happy about it. The coaching staff is not only made up of head coaches, people we blame for every problem and we blame every problem, people who accept a healthy seven-figure salary in return for receiving such criticism. The coaching staff is made up of people who work exceptionally well, for long, mind-boggling hours. They are people who cannot see their families most days of the year. People who have postponed the rest of their lives trying to climb the ladder in what is undoubtedly one of the most ruthless, chaotic and political businesses in our American ecosystem. People who sometimes have to accept the best coaches end up in high school fields, and the worst of them end up coordinating professional defenses for 10 times the money, because they are friends with the right person.
And the they Jobs don’t get easier by reading things like this, which can often add paranoia and sarcasm to a fold that already includes sleep deprivation and any nervous questions they’ll have from family members wondering if they should pack up and move again at the end of the season .
to me those People, we apologize.
The fact of the matter is that the NFL training machine is big business. As seen with Dolphin tampering scandal, some owners will do whatever it takes to secure the coach they want, not caring much about the effect on their employees. Many people whose job is to help place master trainers into job openings are already looking for a design similar to the one we’ll show here.
I will divide my first year coaches into three categories:
- in questionwhich means it’s fair to wonder if the team will make a change.
- If the season continueswhich means that if the team is doing kind of horribly poorly and loudly, we’ll start talking about a change in training, even though it might not happen.
- Nothing to see here, which should explain itself. You’ll see Bill Belichick there.
In each of these categories, there will be room for maneuver as evidenced by the instilled propaganda. There is definitely a marginal class in every class, coaches who may quickly find themselves elsewhere.
On the bright side, one conversation I had was regarding circular In 2023 it should be less active. There are 10 “new” head coaches in year 22. There are a few coaches from last year who performed well. And the teams that you know are out Sean Payton Lottery It may be sitting on their hands.
All that said, life changes. Who knew in early January (Out of a few people) This might be the year the Payton-to-cabin rumors were true? Who knew that Raiders owner Mark Davis would have no choice but that Cut ties with his girlfriend Jon Gruden?
Anyway, let’s look under the hood and see what we’re looking at.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys in Dallas: Let’s be honest: If Jerry Jones has a crack in Payton, he takes it. He also has one of football’s hottest young attacking minds, Kellen Moore, on staff, and Dan Quinn as his defensive coordinator. If the Cowboys are performing slightly poorly, there is no way not to complicate this.
Matt Rowley Carolina Panthers: Rhule’s comeback in 2022 was a bit of a surprise, on a personal level. While the Cheetahs can easily run a low-seeded playoff round in NFC, this looks like one of the safer expected slots at this time. While Rhule missed a mind-boggling college show circuit, his name was definitely associated with some top slots. Joe may prefer the NCAA.
Arthur Smith, Atlanta Falcons: Smith said it himself: “If you don’t win matches, there will be consequences.” To his credit, he’s not just an imitation of Kyle Shanahan and he might have something unique planned for Marcus Mariota. Realistically speaking, though, it’s low on firepower in the tough department.
Pete Carroll, Seattle SeahawksCarol turns 71 next week. While It’s more lean and youthful Over half its life, one must wonder what kind of appetite there is for short-term rebuilding.
If the season continues
Cliff Kingsbury, Arizona Cardinals: As I wrote before, Kingsbury . Extension It was a bit shocking. Although he just signed a new deal, another breakdown late in the season could leave the Cardinal wondering if they’re in good hands with a hard-to-cut quarterback until at least 2026.
Robert Saleh New York Jets: Personally, I don’t think there’s much smoke here. As I’ve written before, I believe the Jets are finally realizing how disastrous the personnel department was after the Mike McCaghan era. This means that Saleh and General Manager Joe Douglas need time. That being said, New York is a unique market, and at times the owners of said market find themselves subject to public pressure.
Brandon Staley, Los Angeles Chargers: This is one of the most coveted jobs in football, and Staley was fearless of something refreshing in his approach. While it’s hard to imagine anything changing, it’s also not hard to imagine some serious behind-the-scenes campaigning for a party like this.
Kevin Stefansky, Cleveland Browns: Stefansky was the top pick for Browns strategy director Paul DePodesta, who appears to be finally in the captaincy at Cleveland. Brown is unlikely to change gears; However, Deshaun Watson’s signature It complicates matters greatly. What if Watson decides, somewhere along the way, that he needs a different coach? Right now, Watson has more power than anyone in the building other than his name Haslam.
Dan Campbell, Detroit Lions: A job we all wish Campbell would keep, as he plays the role great and seems to care about his players. However, Detroit has gone all out this season and faces a logical breaking point for many of the franchise’s pillars after this season.
Nothing to see here
Bill Belichick, New England Patriots: The greatest coach in modern NFL history gets coaching wherever he wants and however he wants.
Andy Reed Kansas City Chiefs: Despite some individual staff turnover, Reed seems to have been connected to the golden years of Patrick Mahomes. While retirement is never out of the question for a 64-year-old, Reid isn’t showing signs of slowing down.
John Harbo Baltimore Ravens: Assuming the crows rebound with a healthy slate, Harbaugh appears to be in a position to run the show for the foreseeable future. He would also be a perfect trainer to take care of crows through what would undoubtedly be embarrassing Lamar Jackson Contract Epic.
Mike Frabel Tennessee TitansHe will stay here for a long time,” said Frapel emphatically after the team lost to the Bengals in the qualifiers.
Matt LaFleur, Green Bay Packers: With 13 wins in each of his first three seasons, LaFleur is on the cusp of the career-defining Super Bowl journey. While there is absolutely nothing comfortable in Green Bay, LaFleur has the Packers in a good place.
Zack Taylor, Cincinnati BengalsTaylor signed an extension beyond the Super Bowl until 2026. The Bengals weren’t ready to part with him after six wins in two seasons. There’s no bullet they’re going to get rid of anytime soon.
Kyle Shanahan San Francisco 49ers: While the environment in San Francisco can get overheated at times, Shanahan is the most underrated coach in football right now. Looks like, even if he’s breathing on Trey Lance, he’s got some staying power.
Sean McVeigh Los Angeles rams: The Rams will keep McVeigh for as long as possible, whether it’s until the end of Matthew Stafford’s reign or some benchmark down the road.
Sean McDermott, buffalo bills: McDermott has bills in first place for the Super Bowl ring. While one could argue that coaches paid a price for not realizing those expectations, McDermott is an institution in Buffalo at the moment.
Ron Rivera Washington leaders: The franchise is not in a position to change coaches at the moment, and may have a hard time seeing who wants to train there versus who they want to train there. Riviera is stable and can handle the heat.
Frank Reich Indianapolis Colts: While I was discussing Reich’s shock, now, Matt Ryan’s move Seems like a multi-year experience. It would be hard to imagine Ryan signing something like this if he thought Reich would be gone after a year. However, another late season stumble without Carson Wentz would raise eyebrows.
Nick Siriani, Philadelphia Eagles: Sirianni turned out to be one of the most pleasant surprises in the NFL last year. With a young, dynamic team, the Eagles could flip Melketost NFC East.
Kevin O’Connell , Minnesota Vikings: O’Connell will be another powerful test of “Sean McVay’s OC Strategy Scoring.” While we mock him from afar, he has largely succeeded with teams that have followed the most unoriginal game plan in training.
Todd Bulls Tampa Bay Buccaneers: After getting burned in New York, the Bulls always thought twice before diving into a bad training situation for his second shot. While the energy surrounding the team is a bit weird at the moment, there’s no chance that the pirates will view Bulls as a potential person.
Mike McDaniel Miami Dolphin: Assuming the monarchy doesn’t get stuck in another tampering scandal, McDaniel will get his shot. Here he hopes his conscientious, elegant style spreads throughout the league.
Matt Eberfluss Chicago Bears: Bears struggle from a people’s point of view, but Eberflus has boosted bad units before. Playing with little house money in 2022.
Luffy Smith, Houston Texas: The Texans cannot fire another coach after one season and maintain their standing as a respected organization in the NFL (if we can call it that now).
Nathaniel Hackett, Denver Broncos: Hackett did a clean sweep of the building in Denver, pouring energy and positivity into some very dark places. A Broncos franchise that has been used to operating one way for decades just got a face-lift.
Josh McDaniels, Las Vegas Raiders: McDaniels’ staff is full, and he has a top 10 quarterback and the best soccer player. West Asia is tough, but it should put a strong foot forward in 2022.
Doug Pederson, Jacksonville Jaguars: As we often say MMQB . PodcastAs long as Pederson doesn’t do anything illegal and runs an unspeakable franchise, he’ll be fine. And he probably would have done much better, with some early optimism from Jacksonville about a more familiar crime tailored to Trevor Lawrence.
Brian Dabol, New York Giants: Daboll has a pair of potential future head coaches as coordinators and a franchise ready to finally press the pause and breathe button after the Eli Manning era. It will take some time, but is it possible to combine the best philosophies of crows, bosses, and bells together to make a profit?
Dennis Allen New Orleans Saints: Allen gets his second chance after Peyton’s sudden retirement. While his first job as head coach in Auckland was heading south, the Raiders were an impossible situation to handle for a young coach at the time. The Saints will cling to whatever intimacy they have now, Allen has been one of football’s top coordinators for nearly a decade.
