As the old saying goes, the NFL stands for not for long, and three weeks into the 2021 season; there are coaches already on the hot seat.

Matt Nagy, Chicago Bears

Nagy has taken the Bears to the playoffs in two of the last three seasons. His most important job right now, and what his job rides on, is not making the playoffs. It’s able to nurture and develop Justin Fields. Nagy did that by signing and bringing in the veteran Andy Dalton as a placeholder, but that fell apart in week two as Dalton got hurt in the Bears win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The bears failed miserably in developing Mitchell Trubisky, and the question has to behave the bears even picked a quarterback capable of being a franchise quarterback? Unfortunately, Trubisky was not the answer, and Fields looks overwhelmed on the field at this time as he seems unable to process what is going on around him. Likewise, Nagy’s playcalling has been suspect at best, and you have to ask yourself, is Nagy the right man for this job?

Joe Judge, New York Giants

Judge did a solid job last year with limited resources and looked poised to make a run at 7 or 8 wins this season. , Instead, after three games, the Giants are 0-3 and just lost at home to the Atlanta Falcons. The Giants spent freely in the off-season, and improvement should be expected, but it has not come to fruition yet.

Jason Garrett as an offensive coordinator always seemed like a bad idea, and with the heat Giants fans are putting on ownership, Quarterback Daniel Jones, GM Dave Gettleman, and Joe Judge could all find themselves looking for employment after this season.

Mike Zimmer, Minnesota Vikings

Zimmer is an outstanding coach, but it’s the NFL, and after almost a decade, the team does not seem to be improving. They could easily be 3-0 right now but are instead 1-2. The playoffs are a must for Zimmer to keep his job, and the reputation Zimmer has as a defensive master-mind hurts him as the Vikings defense has not been good for the past two years.

An Offense with Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and Justin Jefferson should be good enough to get you to the playoffs.
