3 NFL coaches who should be on the hot seat after Week 7

With seven weeks of action in the books, these three NFL coaches should be concerned about their job security going forward.

Week 7 in the NFL brought about some surprising results. The Bengals tossed around the Ravens. The Titans blew out the Chiefs. The Giants spanked the Panthers.

NFL coaches can never rest on their laurels. They’re always one Sunday away from being on the wrong side of a lopsided score. And one step closer to a firing.

Who should be looking over their shoulder this week?

3 NFL coaches on the hot seat after Week 7

Steve Spagnuolo

The Chiefs look a shell of their former selves in 2021. Questions have to be asked on offense after Patrick Mahomes and that usually high-powered attack managed just three points against the Titans.

Even so, the defense has been the problem all season and they were undone once again this week.

Head coach Andy Reid is untouchable. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is not.

Spagnuolo hasn’t had answers to slow down opponents. His personnel decisions have been questionable. Basically, nothing has gone right for him. Seven games into the season KC looks as vulnerable as they were in Week 2. The DC will continue to face the heat until he does something different.

Brian Flores

For the Dolphins, Sunday began with a report from CBS Sports about how players in Miami don’t trust head coach Brian Flores. No trust will have been built up after the team went on to suffer their sixth loss in a row to the Atlanta Falcons.

Flores is in serious trouble. His team is 1-6. His defense is in shambles. His quarterback situation is uncertain.

Even the prospect of trading for Deshaun Watson doesn’t look like it’ll be the saving grace Flores needs it to be. After all, it was the defense that failed to seal the deal against Atlanta, allowing the Falcons to move into field goal range for the win. That one is on Flores.

This is Year 3 for Flores and the team appears to have taken a significant step back. Patience has got to be wearing very thin.

Matt Rhule

The Panthers were on a roll to start this season but they’ve lost four in a row including Sunday’s grimace-inducing defeat to the Giants, 25-3.

When you’re an offense-minded head coach like Rhule, putting up just three points on a New York defense that came in allowing 29.5 points per game is horrific.

The Panthers were 2-of-15 on third down and managed 2.8 yards per play. Sam Darnold and P.J. Walker, who replaced the starter late, were sacked three times each.

Rhule needs to start showing signs he has what it takes to lead an NFL franchise. After a 5-11 season in his debut, this 3-3 start doesn’t hold enough signs of progress.

Now he has to deal with quarterback drama as well. After telling the media at the postgame press conference that Darnold would remain the starter going forward, reports of Carolina entering the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes emerged.
