I personally think it's a pretty good list - though not perfect. I'd like to see Rahim Morris on it (at least over Caldwell). Shanahan is getting votes from reputation. Sean Payton was too low.

Andy Ried at no3. What has he done really? He's a solid offensive coach but has he won a Super Bowl? I remember him mostly for failing seasons where they put all their stock in McNabb and he got hurt, and his SB loss. Everyone in the top 6 has a SB win but him. Also, Lovie Smith, as a Packer fan I like seeing some of the stoopid things he does. Worst challenger in the league now that Childress is gone.

I would say this is a fair list other than the fact that too much of the team's success is being attributed to the coach.

All the people who have Harbaugh in the top 10 are premature ejaculators. He hasn't done **** and u are already calling him a top 10 coach. Fire them now and please control the wood u all have for 49ers.

George Foreman has 10 children, and each of his five sons is named George: George Jr., George III, George IV, George V, and George VI. His four younger sons are distinguished from one another by the nicknames "Monk", "Big Wheel", "Red", and "Little Joey". He has two daughters, Freeda George and Georgetta. He also a three daughters from a separate relationship, Natalia, Michi and Leola. He also adopted a daughter, Isabella Brandie Lilja (Foreman), in 2009.

George Foreman has a crazier idea. Name them all George.

Why would Raheem Morris not being on the list be a shock?

Some people thought he was coach of the year last year.

They added Shanny & Caldwell just in case anybody was still under the impression that ESPN has credibility.

Lovie should not be on the list and Habaugh should be a little higher.

Everyone hates their own coach except for the ones that haven't been around long enough to become hated...Tomlin hate? Seriously?

So with that said, I approve of Lovie's ranking. With all the things that are wrong with him, and there are a ton, he's got a pretty good track record. My gut instinct is to bad mouth him, but I can't name 10 guys that are unarguably better.

I personally like Harbaugh pretty much. It hurts that he isn't an OC/DC because he has to rely on his coordinators and really trust them. A good stabilizing force.

This just shows you how very few proven great HCs there are in the league.

I actually for once love my head coach. I LOVE COACH SPAGS!!!!! Our coordinators from last season....thats another story. But I love Spags and I love McDaniels as OC.

They have a coach who hasn't won a Super Bowl in 11+ years of running a team as their #3 coach? Above guys like Shanahan and Coughlin with one or more rings?

I think they mean if you were picking coaches right now, which one would you pick first, second, third, etc.

Shanahan's recent track record has been less than stellar and Coughlin is rumored to be on the hot-seat (though, it may be total BS).

Mike McCarthy over Sean Payton is highly debatable and probably like that due to GB winning the Super Bowl recently.

^ Exactly this ^

What's funny is a lot of these guys on the list, McCarthy, Lovie, Shanahan..... had many of their own fans calling for their heads at some points in the last 12 months. And a year ago, ESPN would have had Jeff Fisher and Jack Del Rio in their top 5.

Who's Jim Caldwell anyway? I thought Peyton Manning was the coach of the Colts.

Yeah not really sure why PK thinks Caldwell is worthy of #8. Sometimes I think PK just gets off on giving the AFC South publicity whereever he can.

BTW, splat, I had a youtube video going while reading this thread and one of the background music tracks to the video, I have since discovered, is "Love and Caring" by Crystal Castles. It goes so awesomely well with your signature.
