Head coach rankings: Counting down from 32 to 1
Long view vs. <i>What have you done for me lately?</i>
That's the issue when attempting to rank the NFL's 32 head coaches. Todd Bowles won 10 games last season. Should he be above a frontman who fared poorly in 2015 but took his outfit to multiple postseason berths in years prior (see: Jim Caldwell or Jeff Fisher)? My sultry editor, <a href="https://twitter.com/GennaroFilice" target="_blank">@GennaroFilice</a>, leans recent vintage. Many league observers go career résumé, first and foremost. You will see my leanings below.
We do this exercise, the Head Coach Power Rankings, as a spinoff of <a href="http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000659907/article/nfl-power-rankings-draft-lifts-cardinals-broncos-patriots-fall">my usual NFL.com team treatise</a>. It never gets easier to place some names -- like Marvin Lewis. Where would you put him? Or Rex Ryan? Hit me with your take: <a href="https://twitter.com/HarrisonNFL" target="_blank">@HarrisonNFL</a>.
