Norv Turner, Andy Reid lead the list of coaches who need to win this season
NFL Training Camps open up in a little more than a week, which means players will soon start fighting for coveted roster spots. Players aren’t the only ones, however, who could be fighting for their jobs. A number of coaches enter the upcoming season on the proverbial “hot seat.”
Below is a look at the coaches who really need to win in 2012 or otherwise start polishing up their resume.
If you had to hire an head coach today, which NFC coach would you hire?
Championships. Leadership. Awards. Longevity. Statistical records. Likeability. Talent development.
An NFL head coach can be evaluated with many criteria. Generally, winning championships over a long period of time is the easiest (or not-so-easiest) way to the top of any ranking.

That's what's on the line on Sunday night in what might just be the Game of the Year in the NFL between the Giants (8-7) and the Cowboys (8-7) at the Meadowlands. The winner wins the NFC East and locks in the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs. The loser's season is immediately over and there's a chance they could slip all the way to third place.
Here's a breakdown of what each NFL team needs to make the postseason
The NFL playoffs are less than two weeks away. Which means you need more than an abacus to figure out if your team still has a chance to make the NFL postseason (we can't all be Packers fans.) So here's a breakdown of what each team that's still in the running for the playoffs needs to happen to either win their division, secure a first round bye or eke out a wild card spot to keep their dreams alive of making it to the Super Bowl.
