    TOM COUGHLIN NO.1 IN COACHES POWER RANKINGS

    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 on
    Thursday, it brought back memories of Super Bowl XLVI.




    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 coach, who
    endured whispers that he was on the hot seat last season before Big Blue
    embarked on its postseason run.




    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:





    1. Tom Coughlin, New York Giants
    2. Bill Belichick, New England Patriots
    3.
    Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers
    4. Mike
    Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers
    5.
    John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens




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




    28. Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    29.
    Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts
    30.
    Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins
    31. Dennis
    Allen, Oakland Raiders
    32. Joe
    Vitt, New Orleans Saints




    Giants fans, Patriots fans, lovers, haters: Tell us what you think."

    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.

    32. Joe Vitt, New Orleans Saints



    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.


    Just dumb.

    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."
