Nope. You have to win some playoff games first.

If I had photoshop I would make all the top 10 coaches Bill Belichick.

I think the COTY award speaks more to his potential and growth than overall body of work. I don't have an issue with him not being included. He's got more work to do and can still make improvements. Two right off the top of my head: Starting faster in the regular season, and becoming more comfortable and engaged with the offensive side of the game planning

I'm more offended that Andy Reid and Mike McCarthy are listed ahead of John Harbaugh on that list.

Rivera has his obvious strengths and weaknesses.  He is not a strategist, he is a motivator.  He may not out-think other coaches, but his players will play for him.  Rivera needs to surround himself with the right people in order to truly be effective.  The biggest question is, is Shula that guy?

Riverboat might be a top 10 coach.

Ron? Ron had a lot of goofs. But that happens early on

No he is not. 1 good season is not enough.

I dont think RR is a top 10 coach...

 

He is quick to say Cam needs to prove he's a franchise QB...

 

Meanwhile, RR has never won the season opening game. or the game following a bye week, and would have possibly lost the confidence of the team if not for Steve Smith (the trouble maker who had to leave?) calling for a players only meeting last year to keep the team from giving up after week 3

 

Ron has A LOT to prove before I consider him a top anything
