Coaches Death Watch 2016 – A New Poll and Some New Trends

walking dead 2016

Last time we gave you poll numbers, Chuck Pagano was a clear runaway.  He still is, but something fun has happened in the last few weeks, Mike McCoy surged in write-in votes, but then he took his team to a win Thursday night.  So, we’ve closed the original poll, and later in this post you’ll see a new one.

Having said that, here’s our numbers from the poll we closed as of 6 a.m. U.S. Eastern time on Tuesday, October 18th.

  1. Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts – 2,667
  2. Jim Caldwell, Detroit Lions – 1.844
  3. Rex Ryan, Buffalo Bills – 592
  4. Hue Jackson, Cleveland Browns  – 101
  5. Mike McCoy, San Diego Chargers – 89*
  6. Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers – 34*
  7. Jeff Fisher, Los Angeles – 19*
  8. John Fox, Chicago Bears – 13*
  9. Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys – 7*
  10. Andy Reid, Kansas City Chiefs – 1*

*-Write-in votes

Even though we just wrapped NFL Week 6, we didn’t start counting votes until after the conclusion of Week 1, which is why the following graph is labeled through Week 5; it’s how many weeks we’ve counted votes, not the numbers of week on the schedule.


Chuck Pagano is a pull away winner, but there’s eleven weeks of football left.  Jim Caldwell is trending down, but once again…there’s a lot of football left.

That’s why we’ve closed the old poll and opened a new one.  We added the coaches who are trending with write-in votes, largely because we wanted to see what would happen with the numbers without the skewing headstart Pagano and Caldwell had, along with the fact Rex Ryan hasn’t received a single vote in the last three weeks.

Let’s be honest, this isn’t a scientific poll, and it isn’t anecdotal to say this poll can certainly been seen to correlate with a coach winning or losing in any given week, which is why we’ve said…there’s still a lot of football left.  Not to mention our predictive hunches tell us some interesting thing are going to happen with both the guys at the bottom of this chart, and that there easily could be some new write-ins coming from some bile-filled fans sooner than you might think.

We’ll check back with these numbers after NFL Week 8.  In the meantime, our next installment of the Coaches Death Watch will feature JFI’s look at coaches who should get fired, but won’t.

    When’s the last time we had two teams in the World Series whose NFL teams were that bad?
