Wow. The Houston Texans have fired offensive coordinator Chris Palmer after only two games. Offensive line coach Joe Pendry (who himself was once fired as Dom Capers' offensive coordinator) moves up to take his place. When was the last time a team fired a coordinator only two weeks into the season?
It's stunning, really, how far Chris Palmer has fallen. I remember when he took over the Cleveland Browns and football commentators fell all over themselves to proclaim him the best offensive mind in the game. Now he's out of work. Will another team pick him up as some kind of special assistant? Brian Billick could use another coach on his staff right about now.

An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
