Why Haven't These 5 NFL Head Coaches Been Fired Already?

Usually we have seen one or two coaches get their walking papers at this point in the season. Maybe NFL front offices are in more of a giving mood than you or I would be if we were in charge. 

After all, some teams have just flat out quit playing football and are looking forward to a vacation in Hawaii. When this happens, the powers that be within an organization usually tend to make the decision to cut ties with a head coach. 

We saw this with Wade Phillips and the Dallas Cowboys back in 2010. While owner Jerry Jones has made a point of sticking with his head coaches until the end of the season, it became readily apparent that Phillips had lost his team following a 45-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 9 that dropped Dallas to 1-7. 

That being said, we haven't seen that type of action from franchises this season, and I have absolutely no idea why. 

The following is a list of five different head coaches that should have already been shown the door. Of course, one or two of these lost souls could get coal in their Christmas Eve stockings should they be embarrassed tomorrow.
