With just a few games to play in the 2012 regular season, it's starting to become apparent which coaches will survive and which coaches will be hitting the road. This weekend's round of games pushed a few coaches one step closer to being dismissed. Here's the short list of coaches hitting the road following the conclusion of the season. 5) Rex Ryan, NYJ: Another close game against an inferior opponent didn't help Ryan out much. The Jets will need to make the postseason for Ryan to hang on to his job, and with the Bengals and Steelers both outpacing the Jets, it seems unlikely at best that New York sneaks in. 4) Jim Schwartz, DET: The Lions either jump out early and lose late, or they get beat up early, mount a furious comeback and fall just short. Either way, the Lions can't put together 60 minutes of football, and it's getting increasingly more difficult to blame it on personnel. 3) Mike Munchak, TEN: The Titans were supposed to be a solid team this season, but they've never put it all together. It's surprising that Munchak has made it this far considering the Titans' expectations versus their on-field performance. Still, he'll be gone at the end of the year. 2) Ken Whisenhunt, ARI: It's not necessarily Whisenhunt's fault that the Cardinals don't have a quarterback that can play even remotely competent football, but a 58-0 blowout at the hands of the Seahawks takes him from on the bubble to facing a near certain dismissal. He had a great run as the Cardinals' top man, but that performance was laughable. 1) Norv Turner, SD: Turner has underachieved since taking over after Marty Schottenheimer, and it's long past time to move on from the Norv Turner era. He had another shot to take his team into the playoffs this season, but as usual, the Chargers weren't up to the task. Even with a big win against the Steelers, this firing is a done deal. [follow]
