Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli

First it was the St. Louis Rams canning Scott Linehan. Then, the Oakland Raiders finally fired Lane Kiffin. But, which NFL franchise will be the next to make a coaching change?

The Raiders finally pulled the trigger on Kiffin, firing him after weeks of speculation. Al Davis said he ‘picked the wrong guy’ when he chose Kiffin for the job. Linehan was canned by the Rams after starting the season 0-4. Yet, I have to wonder, who’s next?

Is Marvin Lewis’ job safe in Cincinnati? What about Rod Marinelli in Detroit? Marinelli is actually my choice for the next guy to go. The Lions have finally proved they will fire someone (after Matt Millen was kicked to the curb) and there is no sign of improvement in sight.

The Lions are 0-3 in 2008, losing to three teams with a .500 record. The statistics for the Lions are just as bad as their winless record. Detroit is 26th in total offense (289 yards per game) and dead last in total defense (430 yards allowed per game).

So, it’s not hard to point fingers and speculate about Marinelli’s fate in Detroit. It seems like it’s only a matter of time.

    I think Herm Edwards will get fired next because chiefs just plain stink. They have been my families favorite team since the beginning BUT they really need to get rid of Carl Peterson and Herm Edwards to be successful. Another reason we should get rid of Carl Peterson and Herm is because they are thinking about getting rid of Tony Gonzalez. HE IS A PRO BOWL PLAYER SO WHY GET RID OF HIM??? MAYBE IF THEY WOULD PASS HIM THE BALL AND MAKE IT A GOOD PASS THEY WOULDNT THINK HES A DUD! UH! Also our #1 draft picks this year; how many times have your heard there name called on TV and the radio? Maybe once or twice. So if they are planning to get rid of Tony G, who are they going to get who is better then him? NO ONE!!!!!! They are turning into the KANSAS CITY ROYALS: they are getting rid of all their good players to get more money….how r u going to better and get more money if NO FANS ARE IN THE STANDS??? So thats why I think the Coaching staff and Carl Peterson NEED to be FIRED!

    Why are NFL coaches fired so quickly…it seems like an over-reaction. it does not seem reasonable to fire a coach that is working on solutions to the previous coach’s issues…a coach should have at least 2 seasons before being dismissed.
