HEAD COACH POWER RANKINGS - TOM COUGHLIN NO. 2 (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/5/5/3000743/head-coach-power-rankings-giants-tom-coughlin-no-2)

"Amazing what a couple of Super Bowl titles can do. The National Football Post
has put together <a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/news/head-coach-power-rankings-180016616--nfl.html">NFL
Head Coach Power Rankings</a>, and NFP has Tom Coughlin of the <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants">New
York Giants</a> listed at No. 2.<div class="entry-body">


With two championships, Coughlin's job status should never again be
questioned. We know, though, that prior to now he has -- at least in some minds
-- been perennially on the hot seat. </p>


I have not fully thought through how I would rank NFL head coaches, but I can
tell you Coughlin would end up in the top five no matter how I ranked everybody
else.</p>


I find these NFP rankings a little weird, to be honest. Jim Schwartz of
Detroit No. 1? How does that compute? Rex Ryan two spots ahead of Andy Reid?
Marvin Lewis, with no playoff wins in nine seasons, ahead of Ryan, Reid and
Lovie Smith? </p>


I don't get it. But, really, it's just something to chat about on an
offseason Saturday. Doesn't mean much of anything, other than it is nice to see
Coughlin being acknowledged."</p></div>

I'm Schwartz number 1? They guy who can't keep his cool after getting his hand shook too hard after a loss? Who made this list? Belichick 3?? Coughlin is definitely 2 in my book after BB but Schwartz doesn't belong in the top 5. Belichick had a 16-0 season and 3 super bowl wins, probably would have more had they played other teams in the ones we beat them. They just don't match up well to beat us which is great for the Giants haha.

Anyways Schwartz being number 1 is just ridiculous. It's admirable what he's done with a football team that was so terrible just a few seasons ago but you can't be number 1 without any playoff wins (correct me if I'm wrong there, one just doesn't pop into memory)

If it isn't in the following order in top 5
1) BB
2) Coughlin
3) Tomlin
4) McCarthy
5) Payton

Then it is a bad list

Some of these guys make purposely ridiculous lists just to get some publicity (see the ProFootballTalk mock that had the Colts taking RG III).</P>


This HAS to be one of those lists . . .. Jim Schwartz at #1????? I've never heard a more ridiculous thing in my life.</P>

When is everyone going to figure out how the business side of the internet works? The reason they make these lists, etc a bit ridiculous is so that someone will post a link and get people to come see the list themselves. More traffic/hits=more ad cash.

If they made these sensible, people would simply agree and move on, never visiting the page themselves.

RF, I've got to hand it 2 you - you're on a roll with finding the No. 2 stories!! [:)]

Except for getting TC ranked about right, this writer's work reminds me of Izzo's.

Yeah, when I read the title I just assumed it was BB #1 and TC #2, which sounds about right.

That's what I figured initially, as well.</P>


I'll give Schwartz some credit - he's a decent coach, and he deserves praise forturning around Detroit - but #1 in the NFL? </P>


Schwartz has 18-30 W-L record.</P>


Come on now.</P>


I'll go this far: best coach with a 0.375% winning percentage.</P>

I'm gonna go ahead and say a list that has Belichick at 1 is pretty bad.
