Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and NBC Sports' Peter King explain why coaching changes seem inevitable.
MIKE FLORIO: TFT on Yahoo Sports. Peter King, Mike Florio talking about some of the biggest stories in the National Football League. And Peter, three weeks in-- just three weeks in, just 48 regular season games-- already talk of some coaches on the hot seat. I think you and I are on the same page. I'm going to go ahead and let you plant the first flag on who needs to be worried about possibly getting a pink slip
PETER KING: I mean, I don't see any way around Dan Quinn. I mean, how possibly can he save his job unless he goes 11 and 2 the rest of the way? It's so hard to imagine.
Now, I'm exaggerating there. If he goes 9 and 4, he'll probably be back. But it's a pattern of events. That's all there is to it. It is a pattern of events.
The defensive head coach gave up the defense last year because the defense wasn't playing well. And the defense head coach puts an emissary in there as his defensive coordinator. And if anything, their league year-- more unreliable than they were last year.
So again, look. Everybody knows. Everybody who covers the NFL knows that Dan Quinn might be the nicest, most stand-up guy in the NFL. But you can't put Fred Rogers in charge of an NFL team. And so Dan Quinn has got to do some amazing work, the work of his life, in the next couple of months, or he'll be gone.
