Nathaniel Hackett better hope for a Little Giants miracle to still ride with Denver

For those who are unfamiliar with the Rick Moranis and Ed O’Neill cinematic masterpiece Little Giants, you are missing out. In the latest example of life imitating art, Nathaniel Hackett’s Denver Broncos may need to absorb Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs for him to get a second season. One time, Danny O’Shea did beat big brother Kevin in a bike race. Too bad huddling has been a issue…

While there was something pure about Junior Floyd tossing rolls of toilet paper into a shopping cart in an Ohioan grocery aisle, the antithesis of that is self-proclaimed “Mr. Unlimited” doing high knees for four hours in the aisle of a transatlantic flight while all of his teammates were trying to sleep. Unless Hackett goes full-blown Logan with that Adamantium Wolverine blood, he is toast.

Arizona is almost as bad as the LA Rams, but Kliff Kingsbury remains ringless

Eventually, the Arizona Cardinals are going to have to recast Ryan Gosling lookalike Kliff Kingsbury as their head coach. The Cardinals are 4-8 on the campaign, meaning they are only one loss away from finishing the season below .500. Keep in mind that Arizona was the last team to lose a game only a year ago. In a what have you done for me lately league, Kingsbury is running out of time…

Although the Los Angeles Rams are half a game worse than them in the NFC West standings at 3-8, Sean McVay and company did win the Super Bowl back in February. While this year’s big game will be in Glendale, we will not be getting a three-peat of the hometown team being able to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in early February. Michael Bidwill will need to find his franchise a head coach.

If there are any in-season terminations left, the smart money should be on Kingsbury in Arizona.
