It's "Black Monday," the day after the end of the regular season where we typically see head coaches and general managers get told to turn in their keys and to look for another job. Well, much like the holiday season right before this, the NFL jumped the gun and started firing people reportedly before the final game was even played.
A few coaches were fired in the middle of the season as happens every year, with the Titans and Dolphins deciding that they had seen enough much earlier than everyone else. While a few teams have gotten rid of their coaches at the end of the season, the Dolphins and Browns seem to be the only two right now that have completely cleaned house by getting rid of the general manager as well.
