Redskins’ Gruden Favored to Be First NFL Coach Fired in 2019 Season

There is an old adage in professional sports which coaches are hired to be fired, and the apparently never-ending rotating door of training jobs in the NFL has once more put a litany of bench bosses in new positions entering the 2019 season. If it comes to odds on which guy will get terminated first, Washington Redskins??coach Jay Gruden tops this record.
Gruden is the +300 favored at BetOnline ??to get his walking papers, with Pat Shurmur (+700), Matt Patricia (+1000), Bill O’Brien (+1200), Dan Quinn (+1200), Doug Marrone (+1500), Jason Garrett (+1500), Mike Zimmer (+1500), Adam Gase (+2000) and Brian Flores (+2000) rounding out the top 10.
Since he took the reins??at 2014, Gruden’s Redskins have made the playoffs only once, when Washington ended first in the NFC East at 9-7 SU in 2015 before dropping the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round.
The novice quarterback-running back combo of Dwayne Haskins and Derrius Guice has supplied’Skins fans using purpose for hope for its future, but it may be inadequate to save Gruden’s job if Washington has a rough beginning to the campaign. With holes across the roster on each side of the ball, that’s a realistic chance in D.C.
Remaining in the NFC East, the New York Giants are set to start life with no Odell Beckham Jr., but the Giants could certainly find themselves in an identical scenario to the Redskins. General manager Dave Gettleman’s choice to select Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick from the 2019 NFL Draft raised eyebrows throughout the league, and things got even stranger when he said he would not mind sitting Jones supporting Eli Manning for multiple seasons.
Given Manning’s recent performance, it’s hard to believe he’ll turn the clock back in 38, therefore it could be another long season for Big Blue. Shurmur looks just as a competent mentor, however, the lack of ability on offense could eventually doom him if Manning once more sputters under centre.
The arrival of Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia at the Motor City at 2018 was hailed as a terrific hire at the moment, however, the Lions did not scare anyone last year and finished the year well outside the playoffs in 6-10. Detroit’s roster looks better after some significant offseason additions, and while I am not anticipating the Lions to compete at the NFC North, I think they’ll be great enough to maintain the Bill Belichick disciple in his own position for now.
