'Tis the season in the NFL.
And I don't mean to be jolly, although there are coaches, such as Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks, who seem to be enjoying themselves this season.
Less than two weeks from now, "Black Monday" will sweep through the NFL; the day that signifies it's time to start handing out pink slips to head coaches.
There's already been one coach canned, with Gary Kubiak being let go during the Houston Texans' present and never-ending death spiral.
Kubiak isn't going to be alone though, so as we take a look around the NFL at some coaches on the hot seat, let's go one step further and see who might be the most worthy successor.
Of course, who teams want and whom they get are often two different things, but hey...
It's Christmas. The time for hope.
