It would be shocking if Mike Shanahan returned. It's fine to already consider him gone. His seat is so hot, he's not even sitting on it anymore.
A year removed from the playoffs, the Washington Redskins have been humiliating in 2013, and reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year, Robert Griffin III, has taken a major step back in his sophomore season.
Shanahan's made the postseason only once in his four years in the nation's capital.
Blessed with a rocket arm and decent mobility, the fifth-year quarterback should be much more consistent than he is.
Since a 41-touchdown, 16-interception masterpiece in 2011, the former No. 1 overall pick has thrown 48 touchdowns and 34 interceptions and completed only 58 percent of his passes over the last two seasons.
Stafford did sign a contract extension in July of 2013—that's the only development that's somewhat simmering his hot seat.
The New York Jets defense—Ryan's specialty—has been tremendous in 2013.
However, the offense has sputtered more often than its been steady and efficient, and the Jets will miss the playoffs for the third consecutive year after back-to-back trips to the AFC title game in Ryan's first two seasons.
New York general manager John Izdik is in his first year on the job, so unless Gang Green really stumbles at home against the Cleveland Browns and in Miami against the Dolphins, Ryan should be safe.
He's another coach that almost assuredly will be fired in January. The Tennessee Titans haven't made the playoffs in three seasons under Munchak and no one is quite sure about the future of quarterback Jake Locker.
Munchak's team hasn't been an embarrassment, but it mainly has played uninspiring football during his tenure.
The Titans finish on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars and at home against the Houston Texans. One would have to think he needs to win both games to even have any chance to stick around.
