Frank Reich and these two other NFL head coaches are feeling the pressure after Week 2.
Reich entered the season on the hot seat, but he might actually end up being the first NFL head coach fired this season. Indianapolis was seen as the favorite to win the AFC South this year. Unfortunately, the Colts have no clue whatsoever how to play competent football in Jacksonville. His former head coach Doug Pederson ate his lunch all afternoon long. It was so unbelievably bad.
Let’s see who joins Reich on the worst list to be an NFL head coach through the first two weeks.
NFL hot seat watch: What teams’ head coaches are feeling the heat right now?
Cleveland Browns collapsing vs. the New York Jets puts Kevin Stefanski on notice
Though we still have the late-afternoon window and three additional primetime games to dissect, what a train wreck it was for Kevin Stefanski and the Cleveland Browns this weekend! It does not matter if they will be without Deshaun Watson for most of the season, you have to beat the flightless New York Jets at home, especially when they are quarterbacked by Joe freaking Flacco!
At one time, he used to be elite, but Flacco no longer is. Cleveland was leading 30-17 at home to Gang Green with less than two minutes left in the ball game … and lost. After a Nick Chubb rushing touchdown, Cade York missed the PAT. Flacco would connect with Corey Davis on the second play of the ensuing drive to make it 30-24 Browns after the made PAT. Then, chaos took the wheel…
New York recovered the onside kick with one minute left. Flacco found rookie Garrett Wilson on what was the game-winning touchdown after the made PAT. Cleveland got the ball back, and then threw an interception to seal their fate. Trust me, this was some Atlanta Falcons nonsense of epic proportions in Cleveland. Given that Jimmy Haslam will fire a coach, Stefanski is on the hot seat.
You have to beat teams who are worse than you at home if you want to keep your job in the NFL.
