Chuck Pagano isn’t on the hot seat, he’s on the ejector seat
Just like every season, there are a number of coaches on “the hot seat,” fighting for their jobs. Some of those coaches can save their jobs if they can turn it around, but Colin thinks Chuck Pagano with the Colts is as good as gone.
GM Chris Ballard has no connection to Pagano, and Colin spotted him at the Stanford/USC game, and believes Ballard was there to scout Stanford coach David Shaw as a possible replacement. Colin thinks Harbaugh would be a better fit, but Shaw has a better personal relationship with Andrew Luck, who has reportedly become frustrated with the organization.
With Pagano, it’s not a matter of if, just when.
The Giants season is already on the line in Week 2
The Giants looked offensively inept in their Week 1 loss to Dallas without Odell Beckham, and Colin thinks their season is already hanging in the balance in Week 2 against Matt Stafford and Detroit.
It sounds like a hot take, but statistically, teams that start the year 0-2 have an 8% of making the playoffs, and in the Giants case, their schedule doesn’t get any easier with tough games against Philly, Denver, Tampa and Seattle by Week 7.
The Giants need a win this week, or their season could be over before it starts.
