Coaches on the hot seat can manage to find themselves off of it with a win or two. Sometimes, they are wins indicative that the coach has taken the necessary midseason adjustments to flow with the rest of the NFL. Other times, it's because their team just has a favorable matchup. Then, there's pure dumb luck.
When a coach wins, it hides the flaws a team has. Notice how fans' outcries at Andy Reid are starting to die? Even though nothing has really changed?
These are the coaches, that for whatever reason, may think that they're off the hot seat, but are either still on it, or may be hovering right above it.
