While many folks rip Clausen for not improving as the season matured, Rip Scherer wasn't able to help any of the lot either. No new head coach will succeed without a force in the areas of great need. Here's a few QB coaches of note:
Alex Van Pelt - Tampa Bay Bucs - Under an inexperienced head coach, this QB coach was able to make 2nd year QB Josh Freeman look really good, and getting some scoop on a division rival is always a bonus.
Ben McDaniels - Denver Broncos - Coached up Kyle Orton who played an outstanding season this year, and The Golden Calf of Bristol who played well on a weak team in his rookie year.
James Urban - Philadelphia Eagles - He knew when McNabb was disposable, he knew when Vick had improved enough to start, he knew when Kolb needed to sit, and he participated in the analysis and drafts of many good QBs.
Richard Curl - Saint Louis Rams - Coached up the most expensive rookie ever in Sam Bradford to compete for the division title amidst a new and fluxuating receiving corps, albeit in a weak division.
