After an eventful week four, we saw many teams tumble into obscurity in terms of their state of the season. Some players have regressed, some teams overall have regressed, but the regression I am going to be spotlighting today is of the NFL head coaches. One NFL head coach has already been fired because of his negative effect on both the players and franchise as a whole in terms of their production on the field, and that individual is Joe Philbin of the Miami Dolphins. In my personal opinion, owners of struggling teams may use this an alarming message to their failing head coaches in that theycould go the same route if production does not change soon. With that being said, here are five NFL head coaches that could also be fired during the season just as Joe Philbin was today.

Chip Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles

– All we heard before the season was how much of a genius Chip Kelly was and how he was going to bring the Liberty City back to Super Bowl City. Obviously, all this hype has been drastically blown out of proportion thus far as Kelly’s newly constructed Philadelphia Eagles have been as bad as any team in the NFL. Do I think that the Eagles can make a comeback? Absolutely. They have a favorable schedule coming up and it looks like this could be their last window to restore hope in their fan base for a successful season. However, the main reason why Chip Kelly could be fired mid-season is because he changed a playoff team with players like Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, and Jeremy Maclin into maybe the worst team in the NFC East with a bunch of risky players that he rolled the dice on. At the pinpoint of this argument is the utter disappointment in Sam Bradford as the Eagles not only traded a much better quarterback they already had in Nick Foles, but also gave up a very valuable second round pick in the process. The Philadelphia Eagles went “all-in” on Chip Kelly and his smoothies, but if things don’t change quickly, I expect him to be gone sooner rather than later as he has become the problem instead of the solution.
