    Re: Informal forum poll....

    I don't really feel that ranking is a an accurate way to look at coaches, rather, grade them. IHowever, I don't even like grading coaches, usually, since I can be as fickle as anyone, esp. w/ coaches I don't know much about. Anywho...

    Re: Informal Forum Poll....Rank the Coaches..!!

    Pack66 since I don't proclaim to be a coach expert I can't really rank them all but I will teel you where I think Sherman falls because I think that is what you are looking for.

    I would rank Sherman behind....Bellichek, Lewis, Cowher, Fisher, Shanahan, Parcels, Gibbs, Mooch(that's right!), Fox, Gruden and yes Holmy.

    I would rank Sherman in the same class as....Edwards, Dunghole, Vermeil, Shottenheimer, Reid, Mora and Green.

    I would rank Sherman ahead of.....Mularky, Saban(so far), Billick, Crennel, Capers, Del Rio, Turner, Coughlin, Smith, Tice, Haslett, Martz and Nolan.

    Which puts him in the 12-20 range. sorry...I can't get more accurate than that. Where do you rank him Pack?

    Wow. Fox below Gruden? Dungy below Fox? Wow. Gibbs? We are talking about the present or recent past, not all-time right? Wow. That's a crime. Without Dungy, Gruden would have already been fired (i.e. he wouldn't have inheirited the SB team he walked in to). Without Dungy, Peyton and company would still be a good but not great team. Wow, that's all I can say. My list...

    1 - Bill Bellichik: Patriots (3 Super Bowls, 4 years...)
    2 - Tony Dungy: Colts (Would be vying for 2nd SB or more had TB not been stupid)
    3 - Andy Reid: Eagles (Gained respect for not taking T.O. crap and 4 NFCCs)
    4 - Marvin Lewis: Bengals (If you can win in Cincy... with a young QB...)
    5 - Jon Fox: Panthers (If you can get a 1-15 team to believe in themselves AND get the same 1-7 team to finish 6-2 a year later...)
    6 - Bill Cowher: Steelers (There's a reason Pitts has made him most tenured in the NFL)
    7 - Marty Shottenheimer: Chargers (He won in KC, he was better than his inheiritants in Wash, he's won in San Diego and made them a team to fear)
    8 - Bill Parcells: Dallas (Has turned around struggling franchises in NY - twice -, NE, and now Dallas)
    9 - Jack Del Rio: Jaguars (Sometimes the coach is better than the team)
    10 - Joe Gibbs: Redskins (Not as dominant the 2nd time around... the game's changed)
    11 - Herman Edwards: Jets (Straight forward, you know what you're getting)
    12 - Mike Shanahan: Broncos (Sometimes the team is better than the coach)
    13 - Mike Holmgren: Seahawks (Until he prooves that Sea ISN'T as soft as everyone thinks...)
    14 - Steve Mariucci: Lions (Won with old, washed up 49ers and Garcia. Scape goat in Detroit. Matt Millen is the problem)
    15 - Tom Coughlin: Giants (Hard nosed S.O.B.)
    16 - Lovie Smith: Bears (Others aren't laughing at this team quite so much any more).
    17 - Mike Sherman: Packers (From the outside looking in... this guy seems to suck, but that's just my opinion.)
    18 - Dick Vermeil: Chiefs (Loads of talent in KC, nothing to show for it)
    19 - Denny Green: Cardinals (Lots and lots of offensive talent. Still needs a running back, defense, and a consistent QB.)
    20 - Romeo Crennel: Browns (He's the right guy in a very bad situation.)
    21 - Norv Turner: Raiders (He's the wrong guy in a very bad situation.)
    22 - Jeff Fisher: Titans (How was this guy at the top of peoples list once upon a time?)
    23 - Nick Saban: Dolphins (Better off as a coordinator and/or college coach. He needs to heed the advice of Pete Carroll and dominate the little league for big pay checks.)
    24 - Jon Gruden: Bucs (Beneficiary of a stout Dungy D. Has since run the team into the ground with washed up veterans)
    25 - Jim Mora: Falcons (Dan Reeves got shafted with Vick's injury. Mora thrives on riding "Mike" Vick's jock.)
    26 - Brian Billick: Ravens (If only he were as good as he thinks he is...)
    27 - Dom Capers: Texans (Some guys are just destined to be great co-ordinators and aren't head coaches)
    28 - Mike Martz: Rams (See Dom Capers)
    29 - Mike Tice: Vikings (He, Dungy, and Spurrier were hired same year as John Fox. Glad the Panthers went the alternate route. Sure that Indy was happy with their guy too.)
    30 - Mike Nolan: 49ers (Giving the guy some credit... NO ONE could do much with this team.)
    31 - Mike Mularky: Bills (No other coach's name fits better. Bunch of Mularky.)
    32 - Jim Haslett: Saints (He's the wrong guy in ANY situation. This guy blows chunks.)

    thanks yourout...

    i think i should have up'd Edwards to 15..now that I think of it.....after Coughlin...

    He has done a pretty good job with the Jets the past few years...except he tends to be too conservative.....
