    • QUOTES (4)

      • Mike Florio: Well, Dan, lots of speculation this time of year about coaches. Let's start with the guys likely to be out. In Washington Mike Shanahan after four seasons, widely expected to be gone; in Oakland, Dennis Allen's had two years on the job and that may be it for him. Jason Garrett in Dallas, if he doesn't make it to the playoffs, look for him to be out of a job; ditto for Jim Schwartz in Detroit, no playoffs, no job moving forward.
        Peter King: Mike let's talk about coaches in trouble. Rex Ryan with the Jets, highly unlikely to get an extension. That would mean he would be gone after this season. Mike Munchak, 3-8 since October in a year he had to win, likely to get him replaced. Leslie Frazier: playoff year last year, but a bad year in 2011 and this year. And, two coaches I think are going to survive: Greg Schiano in Tampa and Tom Coughlin with the Giants.
        Mike Florio: And it's not all bad news; a couple of guys very much expected to survive: Joe Philbin in his second year with the Dolphins, he's turned that team around in the latter half of the season and Mike Smith in Atlanta. Even though he's had one bad year, he's had five good ones. Look for his coordinators though to likely be out of work.

      • Philadelphia Quarterback Nick Foles: I'm very fortunate to be playing in the NFL, and that's how I look at it. Every day is a blessing to be playing, tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. I've had many friends that had to stop playing the game because of concussions or injuries, a heart condition and I've seen that it can stop at any time. So I play every day; I'm thankful every day.

      • (on his unusual journey to becoming an NFL head coach)
        Chicago Coach Marc Trestman: I can only say that at the present time I look back and I see why it all happened the way it did. I've enjoyed every day since the day I got the job and able to use whatever skill sets that I have to help put our coaches and players in the best position to win on a daily basis.

      • Peter King: With the top college coach, David Shaw, expected to stay at Stanford, look for Bill O'Brien at Penn State, who's interested in NFL openings, to be the No. 1 college candidate to jump to the NFL.
