    Sounds about right. Might move Shanahan, Jim Harbaugh, and possibly Mike Smith up a tier, and consider moving Reid down a tier.

    Re: ranking the coaches

    I always thought that the Giants under Coughlin had more talent than their regular season records indicated, playing mediocre during the season and getting hot at the end. His SB's put him in tier 2 instead of tier 3

    Re: ranking the coaches

    Coughlin is a great coach, no doubt.  His two Super Bowls speak for themselves.  However, his teams have been too inconsistent to put in Tier 1.  You can't go to the Super Bowl one year and then flat out sh*t the bed the following year when playoffs are on the line.  They consistently go 10-6 and make the playoffs, and then the next year go 8-8/9-7 and miss the playoffs.  When that trend becomes a common habit, your coach doesn't belong in Tier 1.

    Also, when fans constantly call for the firing of your head coach every 3 years or so, you're not Tier 1 level.  Nothing wrong with 2 rings and at the top of Tier 2.

     

    Nice thread, rkarp.

    Re: ranking the coaches

    Obviously its perspective. 

    I believe that an elite QB is required to have a good shot at getting to and winning a superbowl. 

    Most people on this board don't give Eli that kind of credit.  So if Eli isn't one of those guys, then you have to add credit for that success to the coach. 

    Maybe Belichick does stand alone.

    A Couple of thoughts on your list:

    1.  I'd have Coughlin in the top tier.

    2.  I think Shanahan is extremely overrated.

    3.  If I could have my pick of any coach outside of BB, it'd be Jim Harbaugh.

    4.  I think Leslie Frazier has done a really good job with relatively no WR's and an average to below average QB.

    5.  I think Pete Carroll is the NFL Coach of The Year for the job that he's done in Seattle, with a rookie QB.  Love their defense.

    A Couple of thoughts on your list:

    1.  I'd have Coughlin in the top tier.

    He is not in BB's class. BB deserves to be in the top tier alone

    2.  I think Shanahan is extremely overrated.

    Why? He has won in Denver and is now winning in Wash

    3.  If I could have my pick of any coach outside of BB, it'd be Jim Harbaugh.

    I like John as a coach as much as Jim

    4.  I think Leslie Frazier has done a really good job with relatively no WR's and an average to below average QB.

    Lets see him do it 2 years in a row before he moves up a tier

    5.  I think Pete Carroll is the NFL Coach of The Year for the job that he's done in Seattle, with a rookie QB.  Love their defense.

    Coach can be coach of the year and still not be a great coach

    Rex Ryan has earned himself a 7th tier spot at the bottom and a place in the coach shameless hall of infamy. His crush on Sanchez should be the last thread of his unraveling that has exposed him as a fool for the ages.

    Re: ranking the coaches

    Reid in tier two? 5 NFC championships, but is this a career achievement award? He hasn't been to a championship game in 2 seasons and made horrible decisions on player personnel and with his coaching staff.

    Tomlin has been to two Super Bowls, winning 1. Albeit, it's with a lot of Cowher's players, but we're talking about coaching, not GMing.

    I would put Jim Harrbaugh in Tier 2 as well. Hasn't won a Super Bowl yet, but look at what he's done to the 49ers in 2 years.

    Why is Garrett ahead of Frazier? Frazier has already won one more big game than Garrett...and he did it with Pondor.

    Re: ranking the coaches

    I agree with most of that.  I like Jim Harbaugh a little more than that and think Shanahan isn't as good. I would keep Coughlin in the 2nd tier despite his SuperBowl wins. BB has his team in the Playoffs every year over the past 11,  other than the 11-5 Brady injured season. Coughlins  teams are inconsistant and both the super bowl wins could have very easily gone the other way. He's still very good but I wouldn't put him on the level of BB. BB stands alone.
