Sean Payton and it's not even close. I don't know how a coach could be faulted for a season where he wasn't even on the sidelines.

With the way the Bears have torpedoed out of the playoffs, I could really see Lovie fired after this season. Especially if the Bears lose their next 2 games which is a very real possibility given all the injuries and the ineffectiveness of the offense

As for the question, it's easily Payton. Saints are gonna do whatever they can to keep him in New Orleans.

He was the reason he wasn't on the sidelines. He gets all the blame for that. With that said, he's definitely the most likely of the options to stay with their current team.

I actually think Norv Turner stays. Just because its the Chargers.

Ken Whisenhunt, if the Cards finish out strong, they wont fire him.

Payton will be back with the Saints, but he hasn't done anything to save his job, he's just been at home on his couch eating Doritos.

I would love for Sean Payton to stiff the Saints and come to Philly.. The problem is that we dont have a QB...

That felt weird just writing that

If Rivera wins out he might have a shot at retaining his job.

I agree with everyone that says Payton will be back, I also believe Whisenhunt will get another shot. I am of the opinion that Romeo and Rivera will not be fired if they finish the year strong. The will get a chance to prove that they are turning the corner with their teams next season, but will be prime candidates to be fired mid-season (2013) if they can't deliver.

Keep their job:
Whisenhunt
Payton

Gone:
Turner
Reid
Crennel

On the fence:
Smith (gun to my head, I'd guess keeps job)
Rivera (gun to my head, I'd guess gone)

These are just my guesses about what will happen. Nothing I'm dead positive about, and not my opinion about what should happen.

I think that Payton and Lovie will both keep their jobs. Outside of those two I think that Whiz is safe for another year.

Rivera is a toss up. He may take the blame for their poor record, but if anything Chud getting too cute on offense has been the issue, IMO.

I have no idea about the future of Ron Rivera. On one hand, we're hiring a new general manager. The odds are not in Rivera's favor to keep his job unless the small likelyhood of an in-house hire takes place, in which case Rivera would be the least of my concerns. On the other, we've been one of the most competitive teams in the league despite a brutal schedule and with the exception of the Giants and Denver games, all of our games lost have been ones that came down to the final possession in the fourth quarter. On the OTHER, a lot of our lost fourth quarter leads have been due to poor adjustments, which can be blamed on the head coach. But then on the other, once Chud grew a brain and let Newton play quarterback instead of being a live by the gun, die by the gun offense, we just look a lot more consistent from half to half. I don't know.

If you asked me around the Chiefs game, I'd have wanted Rivera gone that Monday. Now, I still want him gone. But I wouldn't be as opposed to the idea of him staying as I would have been awhile back just as long as he makes sure Chud never tries to make the zone read option the teams base offense ever again.

So I don't have a clue on Rivera but I think Whisenhunt, Crennel, Reid, and Turner are fired. Payton keeps his job with ease. Lovie Smith is the interesting one. I kind of get the feeling he'll be fired though. Coaches who seem to go on a sputter like they are on after starting off the season great seem to not fare as well as compared to coaches who have their teams straight up sucking coming out the gate.
