You cant diminsh the job that Mike McCarthy has done in Green Bay. Also, some ppl seem to like that drug addict Sean Payton.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

1. 'Chick
2. Harbaugh
3. Coughlin
4. Mike McCarthy
5. Tomlin

HM: Mike Smith (I don't agree with everything he's done, and I know people don't think of him, but before he showed up, the Falcons had never had back-to-back winning seasons. This is the franchise's 5th-straight, and playoff struggles be damned, he's done more in Atlanta than anyone else has).

So I hear some teams are interested in interviewing the Green Bay OC for a head coach job. The guy got his play calling duties yanked from him by mike malarkey when he was here, then he goes and hangs out around favre and Rodgers for a few years and now he's a genius. I realize I am not breaking ground here, but 80% of these clowns are interchangeable and dependent on a qb. I'll say 20% have a clue.

Oh. Maybe the qb coach? Tom something. I guess he made Aaron Rodgers a stud.

Yeah, Tom Clements is their OC now, he may have been their QB coach, dunno. Agreed on the general assessment that the QB is a huge factor. That's part of the reason why I think Jim Harbaugh is terrific.

Agree. I think both harbaughs are great. I don't particularly like flacco or smith and both were a couple of bonehead plays from facing each other in the Super Bowl last year.

I know the Bears are setting up an interview with Clements, along with a bunch of other OCs and guys with no head coaching experience. So they have a GM who has never been a GM before last year looking to hire a new head coach who most likely will have no prior head coaching experience. I get the feeling this may not end well.

I heard a couple of callers and hosts say that Lovie Smith could be a good hire for the Eagles. Yeah that would be awesome.

struggling offense? undersized receivers? shitty o-line? Sounds like a Lovie kind of team.

1. Belichick



2. Coughlin (for now)
3. Sean Payton (in absentia)
4. Jim Harbaugh (loses points only for a small sample size; could be as high as #2 in a year)
5. Mike Shanahan (gets points for having to win under Snyder, also having two rings doesn't hurt)

HM: Mike McCarthy, Jeff Fisher, Andy Reid, Peyton Manning

I think Pete Caroll has done a great job this year, and should probably get COY, but his body of work is mediocre. He needs a great playoff run or another year or two of 10+ wins to be in the Top 5 conversation. Also, Marvin Lewis is sneaky-good. Has a few clunkers on the resume, though. Next year is a big one for Tomlin. If he can preside over a successful rebuilding effort, I think he also moves up the list.

Here's my list of Top 5 NFL coaches of my lifetime:

1. Joe Gibbs (deal with it - Won Super Bowls with 3 different QBs, three different RBs, but also made playoffs with six different QBs, none of whom are HoFers)
2. Bill Belichick (loses points for getting caught cheating, otherwise nearly flawless; Tenure in Cleveland worse than Gibbs' second stint in DC)
3. Bill Walsh
4. Tom Landry
5. Don Shula (Very good, but a little overrated in general, I think)

HM: Chuck Noll (Good coach, but, if you gave me that roster, even my dumb ass could have probably won one Super Bowl)


FWIW, I think Vince Lombardi is the all-time #1.
