Black Monday 2014

Welcome to Black Monday - the day when a number of NFL head coaches are relieved of their positions following the end of the regular season.

It's always an intriguing day following how the team owners react to the past seventeen weeks worth of football.

As I typed this at 10:30am on Sunday morning, the two obvious names to be leaving are the New York Jets' Rex Ryan as well as the 49ers' Jim Harbaugh.

If Carolina beat the Atlanta Falcons last night (remember this is being typed up early on Sunday), then it's also possible that Mike Smith will be packing his bags.

I might as well do a reverse here. 

If Atlanta beat the Carolina Panthers last night (remember this is still being typed on Sunday morning), then it's also possible that Ron Rivera will be packing his bags.

Ironically, both Smith and Rivera could be gone if they don't make it to the Super Bowl.

Marc Trestman of the Bears is another one on shaky ground as is the New York Giants' Tom Coughlin although I think he'll be given a little more respect and allowed to walk rather than be fired.

I'm also interested to see what becomes of Sean Payton at New Orleans. I think he'll get another year at least, but if they did end up letting him go, I would not be too shocked.
