TOM COUGHLIN NO.1 IN COACHES POWER RANKINGS (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82958709/article/tom-coughlin-no-1-in-coaches-power-rankings)

"It's not the first football list we've seen
this offseason and it won't be the last, but when Sporting News ranked NFL head coaches from top to bottom (http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2012-05-24/nfl-coach-ranking-tom-coughlin-bill-belichick-mike-mccarthy-mike-tomlin) on
Thursday, it brought back memories of Super Bowl XLVI.


<div id="yui_3_4_1_1_1337974685265_758" class="articleText">

Tom Coughlin has beaten Bill Belichick once again. It's another mountaintop
moment (OK, maybe hilltop moment in this case) for the New York Giants (/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) coach, who
endured whispers that he was on the hot seat last season before Big Blue
embarked on its postseason run.</p>


Around the League is planning to release our coaching rankings down the road
(contain your excitement). For now, here's how Sporting News drew up its top
five:</p>



1. Tom Coughlin, New York Giants
2. Bill Belichick, New England Patriots (/teams/newenglandpatriots/profile?team=NE)
3.
Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers (/teams/greenbaypackers/profile?team=GB)
4. Mike
Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers (/teams/pittsburghsteelers/profile?team=PIT)
5.
John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens (/teams/baltimoreravens/profile?team=BAL)</p>


While we’re at it, the bottom five (tough to be the new kid around these
parts):</p>


28. Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (/teams/tampabaybuccaneers/profile?team=TB)
29.
Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts (/teams/indianapoliscolts/profile?team=IND)
30.
Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins (/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA)
31. Dennis
Allen, Oakland Raiders (/teams/oaklandraiders/profile?team=OAK)
32. Joe
Vitt, New Orleans Saints (/teams/neworleanssaints/profile?team=NO)</p>


Giants fans, Patriots fans, lovers, haters: Tell us what you think."</p></div>

I wonder where Sean Payton would have ranked had he not been suspended? If he was in the top 5, that would essentially be vindication on not only parcells (he got vindicated himself by winning two rings, one with the backup QB), but his ability to train other top coaches. Imagine 3 disciples of Tuna ranking as the top 3 head coaches.

<DIV class=articleText>The Saints have a team that is Super Bowl - talented.....and they replace Payton with a guy who himself is going to be suspended for a large chunk of the season.</DIV>

Quote from the article:



"So why isn’t Belichick in the No. 1 slot? Because he has lost three consecutive games to Coughlin, including two Super Bowls. Lifetime, Belichick is 1-5 against Coughlin."

As much as like the article placing our coach at 1... this rankings are garbage.
