Black Monday 2013 – the Axe Swung Heavy

Family members of Detroit Lions fans can return all sharp objects back into their households, because, yep, the Lions fired coach Jim Schwartz on Monday.

How bad did the Lions front office want to make a change?

Well they’re gonna be paying their roller coaster coach $12 million to hit the road. Lions fans sharpened their pitchforks and came out in hoards via Twitter asking for Schwartz’ head after the talented roster blew a 6-3 division lead and imploded, ending up 7-9 and out of the playoffs. One of those losses came at home against the 2-8 Bucs.

Oh, the Bucs….the axe swung in Tampa Bay too.

Coach Greg Schiano fell victim to the axe. Schiano’s the guy who introduced schoolyard fucktard ball to the NFL by having his D line charge into an unsuspecting opposing offensive line when they were taking a knee to end a game.

This firing is somewhat of a surprise since the Bucs competed well once they put their tall rookie QB Mike Glennon in to replace Josh Freeman who was butting heads with Schiano. Glennon looks like a kid who would get his tongue stuck on a cold pole in the winter but he had a promising season that included winning that challenging game in Detroit.

BTW, Bucs GM Mark Dominik also was fired.

Moving onto Washington where their owner Dan Snyder seems to not have a clue half the time, Mike Shanahan was canned. The Redskins who traded everything including their kitchen sink and first-born children for RG3 had one of the most underachieving seasons in the NFL; so someone had to go.

And that someone was Shanny who is an offensive guru but seems to be out of touch with the current NFL regarding dealing with egos and players.

Other firings included Vikings Leslie Frazier who led his team to a 5-10-1 season . Most exciting thing to happen in Minny over the recent years is when Fox showed their tight end’s schlong hanging out on live TV. That said, Frazier had plenty of time and deserved to get pink sipped.

Last but not least, the Browns Rob Chudzinski joined this elite group. In fact he was the first to get the news. But the Chuds firing has Browns fans and players shaking their heads since the guy was allowed just one season to turn things around. A season that the GM dumped Trent Richardson and dangled star WR Josh Gordon indicating they were throwing in the towel before Halloween arrived. The next coach we see on the sidelines in Cleveland will be the 4th since 2008 and the next QB we see taking snaps will be the…wait a sec…let me get out my calculator…forget it, point is, the Browns have gone through dozens of QB’s in their recent history. Who really needs to go in Cleveland?

Those are the guys who fell victim to the axe but we do have one honorable mention.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett finished with another 8-8 non-playoffs season but he’s expected to stay.


Because the team has the shittiest GM in the NFL and the owner won’t fire that GM…wait…
