    I'm guessing it will be at least 10, which I think was the record set three years ago. That's counting interim coaches (Singletary, Haslett) and guys who have been promised the job (Caldwell, Mora, Garrett).

    I think there could be as many as 12.

    Browns for sure.

    I'd think all of the most obvious moves have already been made, so I'm not sure it'll be that high.

    I think Singletary stays. Haslett maybe too, unless the owners in St. Louis think they can do better by hiring a rookie a la Harbaugh/Smith/Sparano (with the difference that two of those teams had some talent and the third has a taskmaster at the top). I'd guess Marinelli stays, because who in the hell else wants that job?

    Does Jauron take the fall for Trent Edwards' fall back to earth? Does the Texans' resurgence save Kubiak? How much rope does Herm get without Peterson around, little or none? And I have to think patience is wearing thin with Norv; it's about that time, isn't it?

    McNabb will go before Reid does in Philly. And if Zorn gets fired, then Dan Snyder is a bigger fool than even I gave him credit for.

    Like PC said, Crennel is a likely candidate, but he seems to be one of the few.

    Marinelli & Edwards are not coming back. Kubiak should be safe.

    We know Seattle, Oakland, San Fran and St. Louis will have new/different coaches than they started the 2008 season with.

    The Chiefs, Browns, Bengals and Lions would all seem pretty likely as well.

    Texans, Jaguars, Colts, Cowboys and Redskins all could join that list.

    Philly could be there as well. Maybe the Vikings if they find someway to miss the playoffs.

    Am told the Lions might be in need of a housecleaning... so I would figure they could use a new coach.

    No way does Marinelli survive.

    Del Rio is safe.

    Del Rio isn't going anywhere. He signed an extension last year and there is no way the Jaguars can afford to pay him off.

    Texans should stick with Kubiak. If Rosenfells doesn't implode against the Colts, the Texans have a shot at the playoffs.

    Don't see the Bengals making a change, Marvin Lewis has years remaining on his contract and it wouldn't be the Bengal Way to pay someone not to work.

    Judging by their record of late, it seems all the Bengals have been doing is paying people not to work.
