Which coaches are on the hot seat early in the 2014 season?

Which coaches around the league are facing unemployment in 2014?

Rex Ryan

An annual placement on these sorts of lists, the New York Jets are 1-2 and facing a four game stretch against the Lions, Chargers, Broncos and Patriots that could potentially leave them at 1-6 and facing disaster. Also the Jets secondary is a mess and Geno Smith is struggling with the threat of Michael Vick hanging over him.

Dennis Allen

Allen is 8-27 as the Raiders head coach and with no predictable win in sight, the Raiders may go rebuild without him.

Joe Philbin

Kevin Coyle's defense has been openly criticized by defensive players, Ryan Tannehill is still in the frustrating zone of "I can't tell whether he's good or bad," and Miami's offense looks nothing like Philadelphia's. If the Dolphins lose to the Raiders in London, calls for Philbin's head will increase.

Tom Coughlin

Eli experienced his worst season last year and the Giants aren't looking too good in 2014 so far. Which either means he's going to retire or win a Super Bowl. I'm going with the former.

Lovie Smith

Yes, it's only been a year. But the offense is abysmal and the defense, the one thing a Lovie Smith coached team should be good at, couldn't force Derek Anderson and Austin Davis into turnovers and was shredded by Matt Ryan. The Buccaneers look worse than they did in 2013.
