It’s the greatest time of the year, as the famous holiday songs go. Hanukkah and Christmas have just passed and everyone feels like a holiday, but it’s short-lived for the NFL people.
Just a week after Christmas, dark clouds begin to approach, and as the New Year begins, many stakeholders throughout the NFL can be guided. So, of course, Black Monday is just around the corner, and as the name implies, it’s one of the most difficult days on the league calendar.
Let’s take a quick look at the five general managers and head coaches who may receive pink slips on Black Monday.
5. Cincinnati Bengals, Head Coach, Zack Taylor
In 16 seasons under Marvin Lewis, Bengals won only twice in less than six games. Under Zack Taylor, they achieved it twice every two years. As the saying goes, the grass is not always green on the other side. Cincinnati won only two games in 2019, but this season only five games. This puts pressure on ownership and welcomes a third head coach in four years. But with consecutive wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Houston Texans, the Bengals look much better in the final week of the season. The late victory helps Taylor’s work condition. But is it too late? It’s likely, but an end-of-season victory over Baltimore Ravens certainly makes the decision much harder.
