NFL Coaches on the Hot Seat Heading into Week 7

Every week, it seems there's another coach who moves himself closer to unemployment line. Week 6 in the 2012 NFL regular season was no different. 

This week, it was Andy Reid, head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, who had a Detroit Lions team on the ropes but was unable to deliver the knockout blow.

Prior to the regular season, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie flatly stated that Reid needed to finish better than 8-8 to keep his job.

Well, don't look now, but the Eagles currently sit at .500 with a 3-3 record.

Obviously, there's a lot left to play out. But don't be surprised if Reid makes the move to rookie quarterback Nick Foles sometime in the next two weeks if the Eagles continue to play .500 ball.

This team needs a spark, and watching the 2012 rookie-quarterback class find a decent amount of success so far this year, the temptation will be there for Reid to make the move. With his job on the line, that may be all the motivation Reid needs. 

In the video above, we look at a number of coaches who may have moved closer to the door this week. And we also give a hearty congratulations to two head coaches who kept themselves off the list...for now. 

Let us know in the comments below where you agree, where you disagree and who you think we may have left off the list.
