Continuing with the off-season blitz of move hated/favorite, who are your favorite and least favorite coaches...be it heads, assistants, past or present..I have an idea of one guy who will make an appearance on most 'least favorite' lists :chuckle:

Favorite:

Love Smith - what more can I say?
Tony Dungy - A role model..been through a lot, great character guy
Mike Singletary - Kinda cheating, but IMO he'll be a great head coach one day..so inspirational
Buddy Ryan - this guy is the best defensive mind to touch the game ever IMO....he was a revolutionary
Mike Nolan - He just seems like a classy guy and he gets the respect of his players...always liked him
Belichick - even though I hate the Pats, he's one of the best ever


Least favorite

Brad Childress - I hate everything about him
Bill Cowher - When your coach is more jacked up on 'roids than your players, you got a problem
Sean Payton - that guy just bugs me
..Belichick again - for some reason, i love this guy but equally despise him

BB is on radio every week and i recommend you listen to him .He is funnier and comes off as a normal guy on a non game days.

Of current coaches I would have to say I really respect the following: Dungy, L.Smith, Nolan, Belichick, & J.Fisher who are on the top of my list. As for the coaches I really do not care for, they are probably Coughlin, Childress, & H.Edwards.

I'm also very interested to see how Cameron & Whisenhunt progress as a head coach.

4. Tony Dungy
5. Lovie Smith
6. John Fox
7. Scott Linehan
8. Mike Nolan
9. Eric Mangini

5. Jack Del Rio---probably just living in Jacksonville and disliking the Jags
6. Brad Childress
7. Brian Billick
8. Marvin Lewis
9. Norv Turner
10. Joe Gibbs

Active Coaches:
Favorites:Andy Reid-I like that he is a big guy, a pretty cool guy, and his pass 1st philosophy.
Tony Dungy-Nice classy guy
Lovie Smith-Dungy's protege, with same character
Joe Gibbs
John Fox
Jeff Fischer
Jack Del Rio, mainly beacause I like him as a USC star wearing #52.

Hated:
Tom Coughlin-A horrible person. Erratic coach. Product of the Parcells coach by sarcasm style.
Belichick
Brad Childress-He seems like a bit of a jerk, and does not seem to game coach well
Eric Mangini-Belichick jr.

Historicly:
Loved:
Don Shula-The Don always showed class, honesty, passion, and intergrity
Dick Vermeil
Vince Lombardi
Hank Stramm
Bill Walsh
George Allen
John Madden-Loved his antics and is from my alma-mata, Cal Poly


Hated:
Bill Parcels-Master of the coaching by sarcasm style
Coughlin
Belichick
Marty Schottenheimer-I have constantly made fun of Marty for over two decades. I do feel sorry for him getting run out of San Diego though.
Buddy Ryan-Major jerk
Chuck Knoll

I think one coach who doesn't get enough credit is Jeff Fisher. That guy has coached the Oilers/Titans for so long now, and they usually field a good team. I am amazed at guys like Fisher and (formerly) Cowher.

In today's 'what have you done for me lately' sports scene, where a coach usually last what, 3-4 years, they've been at it for over 10 years!

I really don't like Shanahan and Mangina.

I'm not a big fan of Dungy only because of off-the-field. He's often blinded by his faith, and because of it, doesn't really like a certain lifestyle choice many people make. Let's just say, he doesn't like people who "switch teams."

Favorates:
John Fox- Just always liked him. I still can't believed how he turned around a horrible 1-15 team and had them in one of the best super bowls I've ever seen (03' Pats v. Panthers) just two seasons later.

Jeff Fisher- He's been with the Titans for a long time now and they seem to constantly be good. Even after having to release almost every star player he had, the guy still put together a decent team that looks like it could be good for years to come with such talented youth..

Bill Belicheck- Even though he's with the Patriots, I still have a ton of respect for him. One of the all time greats imo.

Mike Nolan- He's just been awesome in rebuilding a franchise that was awful before he was signed. I thought he was set up for failure when he took the job but he's totally suprised me.
