Firing squad

Pagano fired from Colts.
Del Rio fired from Raiders.

I'm sure many more to come.

Yup.

Jack Del Rio just said Mark Davis told him after the game that he was fired.

That would be great, but unlikely given the number of HC openings. These guys tend to get recycled. After all, if Norv Turner and Jeff Fisher could keep getting jobs, Del Rio should get a new gig very quickly.

I hear ya, but the last time Del Rio was fired in Jacksonville he surfaced in Denver as their DC until getting the head spot in Oakland. Him getting another HC position right away is not a given.

Caldwell is out in Detroit and Fox is gone in Chicago.

And Lewis it was announced earlier in the year is gone in Cincinnati.

To sum up, at this point in time it looks like:

Bears fire Fox
Giants fire McAdoo
Lions fire Caldwell
Raiders fire Del Rio
Colts fire Pagano
Cardinals  Bruce Arians retires

Now I'm reading that there has been no decision on Lewis in Cincinnati. I thought it was stated by Lewis they were parting ways at the end of the year?

I think letting Caldwell go was a mistake.

The problems with that team were largely due to the front office.

Caldwell is a good coach who is well like by his players.  He had the best percentage win record in Detroit since the late thirties

This is why they are the Lions.   ;)
