What if we could read the e-mails of NFL head coaches on the hot seat?

We could find out what is going through their collective minds in their waning hours and days. See who they are in contact with and who is trying to reach them.

Let's have some fun as we inspect (fictitious) Gmail inboxes of current coaches on the hot seat. 


Ken Whisenhunt, Arizona Cardinals

Ken Whisenhunt and the Arizona Cardinals have been going through a bit of turmoil this season.

E-mails have been absolutely pouring in from Larry Fitzgerald about his role within the offense. Kevin Kolb wants a raise, and Pete Carroll rubbed some salt in a fresh wound.

At least Whisenhunt has learned to ignore the owner's phone calls.



Chan Gailey, Buffalo Bills

The city of Toronto does not want to call the Buffalo Bills their own.

C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both begging for more carries. Ryan Fitzpatrick is sorry about throwing interceptions and the AARP wants to renew Gailey's membership.

An interesting inbox to say the least.



Lovie Smith, Chicago Bears

Lovie Smith is dealing with a lot of different issues in Chicago right now. The team is struggling to stay in playoff contention, the offense has lost its luster and his inbox is filled with people complaining.

From Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall to Mike Ditka and potential employers, Smith's inbox has a little bit of everything.



Pat Shurmur, Cleveland Browns

Will Pat Shurmur be employed by the Cleveland Browns next season? Only owner Jimmy Haslam knows, but according to this fake Gmail inbox, we already know the answer.

Plus, Brandon Weeden is feeling old and Trent Richardson is sick of losing. All part of being the head coach in Cleveland.



Romeo Crennel, Kansas City Chiefs

ESPN may not want him as an analyst, but former fellow coordinator Charlie Weis wants Crennel in Kansas.

That's not a bad fallback plan, right?



Rex Ryan, New York Jets

It appears that Rex Ryan's inbox is plagued by many of the same issues as his day-to-day life.

Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez make up the bulk of his messages, but even Greg McElroy makes an appearance to thank Ryan for an opportunity to start.

Yes, McElroy is really going to start.



Norv Turner, San Diego Chargers

Fans have clamored for it for years and now the end of the Norv Turner era is truly nearing in San Diego.

So, what's going through his inbox? Job applications, random thoughts from Philip Rivers and messages from Shawne Merriman, of course.
