If Zona & KC are the 2 worse open jobs, the Buffalo is the 3rd. A truly
wretched, horrible team.

KC and Arizona have some really good talent though.  I feel worse for anyone going to Cleveland.

KC, Arizona, Buffalo and Cleveland = bad jobs


Carolina, San Diego, Chicago, Philly = good jobs

The "good" jobs have QBs in place and you can conceivably can "win" there realistically soon.

Cleveland has a decent defense.

That pick of QB Brandon Weeden in the First Round was just ridiculous.  This screwed the offense up for any future head coach. 

I do not think Cleveland is as bad off as some think.  The offense needs overhauled starting with Weeden unless some new coach can make him somewhat successful.   Richardson should give them a decent running game, but they need to vastly improve the passing offense and you need a good QB to do that.

Ron Rivera has not officially been whacked in Carolina.

Are you saying Nick Foles is the future for the Eagles?

How long of a chance are you gonna give him? 1 full season? two? three?

Playing 5 or 6 games last season doesn't make him "good".
I am sure he showed flashes and that may give him the heads up on starting but I wouldn't say the Eagles have their QB in place.

I didn't look to be certain, but I think they went 6-1 to end the season and beat some good teams too

I disagree.
KC has a lot of talent-5 pro bowlers this year, it was just awful coaching and a terrible QB. If you can get a QB, it's a very good gig.
AZ-terrible O line and no QB but the best WR in football (IMO) and a very good D. Not bad.
Buffalo-fairly talented but missing a QB.
Cleveland-good young nucleus, but I would think the owner will have a short leash with anybody (2 years of rebuilding and that's it).
San Diego has Rivers but that D is awful, the OL sucks, the RB's are terrible. Plus Rivers looked terrible.
Philly has talent but they are a mess. Plus I'd hate to have to deal with the fans. Sorry.
Carolina-Accorsi will find a real GM who will hopefully right the ship, but I don't like much about that team. I don't like Scam at all.
Chicago=need to rebuild the entire OL and the D is getting old but that is a good gig.

RE: Foles

Earned the opportunity for next year.

You really can't tell yet. If he has an intact offensive line and Desean Jackson and Shady McCoy are back 100% you can start the grading process from there.

They need WRs as well.  Richardson, Alex Mack, and Joe Thomas are the only quality players they have on Offense.  That team is bereft of talented skill position players.  Their defense is middle of the pack.  That team has just been a wasteland since they came back.

Yes, kc had ludicrously bad coaching, but from things that have been reported over the last few years, I'm under the impression that the front office is a mess. Lots of paranoia and dissension. I assumed that was why they hired a guy who had already proven to be one of the worst head coaches in nfl history, because others were scared off by some of the crazy stories and squabbles in that organization.
