Welcome to the Week 5 edition of NFL head coaches on the hotseat.

A quarter of the season is gone and there are several NFL teams already gone too in terms of any realistic shot at making the playoffs.

Yes, you heard right. Just four games into the season and some teams are all but done because a turn around is impossible given the team's dire circumstances, which include a lack of talent, key injuries and no clear plan on offense or defense.

There are a few other teams who are on "life support" and will need dramatic turnarounds just to stay in the mix for the postseason.

As you might imagine, the coaches of these teams are on the hot seat and in some cases have already been getting burned.

But, whose seat is the hottest?

And which coach might be getting warm without you realizing it?

Here are the five coaches on the hotseat right now, starting with "least warm" at five to number one who is "it's not 'if' they get fired, but likely 'when.'"

Losing one's job is not a pleasant experience for anyone and not something to look forward to even as a frustrated fan looking for someone to blame.

But, in reality, it's part of the business and sometimes a change in leadership is absolutely necessary if the franchise is ever going to take a next step—whatever that step might be. 

Let's take a look.
