Opinions welcome on this ranking.
Tom Coughlin Ranked No. 5 in Power Rankings - ( New Window )
So much  
Giantology : 7/14/2014 2:15 pm : link
TC is pretty powerful. He lifted that superbowl trophy  
Jimmy Googs : 7/14/2014 2:20 pm : link
way over his head...twice actually.

BTW - a bit too much "love" for Lovie Smith in those rankings. And Sean Payton is a very good coach but #2?

Coughlin has out coached the number 1 ranked and number 3 ranked Coach on that list twice when it counted for all the marbles

I don't think there are many people who would argue that Coughlin is historically a better overall coach than Belichick (whether he beat him in two Super Bowls or not). My belief is that Belichick is top 2 or 3 all time.
Jim Harbough seems a little high  
ZogZerg : 7/14/2014 2:54 pm : link
He has done a great job, but he hasn't gotten to the top of the mountain yet.

Sean Paton - His value is pretty obvious when you look at how the Saints did one year without him. I believe the Colts made the playoffs the year they lost their HC (for most of the year anyway).
Ravens are in it every year

just like the Patriots so I think Harbaugh should be ranked pretty high.
Think Rex Ryan ought to be higher  
bc4life : 7/14/2014 3:15 pm : link
If only he had a player bearing any resemblance to a franchise QB.
You probably should

weight this rating based on personnel management.

Most likely, but TC's teams have been nuttin' to shout out about overall. Even the last SB ring we barely made the playoffs.

That said, it sure beats being a Dallas fan. America's Team Irrelevant since the 90's
It's a joke that Jim Harbaugh is ahead of Coughlin

Belichek among active coaches should be above Coughlin.
ct.fatboy1080 : 7/14/2014 4:49 pm : link
Fisher a good coach that has never gotten his team over the hump. He gets a lot of love in the media so I am not sure about him being under rated.
For one game  
Joey in VA : 7/14/2014 5:08 pm : link
Who do you want? I'd take TC in one game over almost any coach in the league living or dead. He was absolutely on point for our two SB runs, that team played perfectly at times and just good enough when they were on the ropes. Consistently clutch plays, sound defense, sound fundamentals, and not one hint of choke or nerves during those runs against some very good teams in very tough places to play and his troops triumphed repeatedly over heavily favored opponents, Dallas, Green Bay, New England, Green Bay again, San Fran, New England again...those two runs are as good as any playoff runs I've ever seen from any team in those spots.
Without reading the rankings, my picks:  
Big Blue '56 : 7/14/2014 5:19 pm : link

2-Coughlin(best clutch HC in the game, imv)

3-Jim Harbaugh

4-Pete Carroll

5-Andy Reid

6-John Harbaugh
ZogZerg : 7/14/2014 6:02 pm : link
Jim Harbough doesn't coach the Ravens.

I put BB #1 and TC #2.

Payton at 3.

No way I put Jim harbaugh above TC.

With the talent in SF and him not getting it done.. its laughable to see him top 5.

BB and TC have done it and without the stacked talent the miners have. John Harbaugh gets credit however imo.
Belichick should be one  
cjohn2979 : 7/14/2014 8:56 pm : link
Coughlin should be two.
Mike Tomlin should be there  
section125 : 7/14/2014 11:13 pm : link
Maybe #6, but above Jim Harbaugh. John does a good job.

Of course I didn't read the article.

Excellent, Nick
My Picks before I look at the article  
Joeguido : 7/15/2014 8:55 am : link
4-Pete Carroll
5-Jim Harbaugh
6-Andy Reid
Tom's ranking is probably right where I  
MikeN in Ottawa : 7/15/2014 9:34 am : link
think it should be. The reasons we have not made the playoffs the past two years have less to do with Tom than with JR not restocking the offensive line. Plus, after being 0-6 last year, TC did not lose the locker room and the Giants kept playing hard.

One wonders where we might be had the front office done their job by refilling the obviously aging O-line.

Tom, however, is still a brilliant coach.
Tom would have been 1 or 2  
NYGmen58 : 7/15/2014 10:41 am : link
but they checked BBI and read that the game has passed him by so he dropped...
Coughlin would have ranked 1 or 2  
NYG27 : 7/15/2014 12:06 pm : link
If the Giants made more playoff appearances the last five years. Even with the Superbowl, I think ranking 5th is fair for now, since we've missed the playoffs 4 of the last 5 years.

If the Giants make the playoffs this year, I think Coughlin automatically jumps to the Top 2-3 on that list next offseason.
I'd consider Coughlin  
mrvax : 7/15/2014 12:27 pm : link
#2. I think the bunch of missing playoff seasons were largely due to lack of roster talent and a rash of improbable injuries.

Only one of the Harbaugh brothers have won the big game, once.
Good coaches, yes. Great? Not yet.

Sean Payton is a very good OC. Very smart at creating offenses. It's hard for me to rank him because of my dislike of the bastid.
