The 10 Best


1. Redskins' Jim Zorn: Doesn't get near enough credit for turning Jason Campbell into a legitimate starting quarterback. Campbell was headed toward being a draft bust before Zorn arrived. Last year Todd Collins saved Washington's season filling in for Campbell late. This season Campbell is completing 64 percent of his passes and has avoided the big mistakes while leading the Skins to a 6-3 start in the league's best division.
2. Patriots' Bill Belichick: I was in the house when Tom Brady went down in the season opener. I wanted to write that Bernard Pollard's low blow ended the Patriots dynasty. I texted Jeff George's cell number to New England general manager Scott Pioli. The Patriots were done. Obviously I underestimated Belichick. Depending on what happens tonight against the Jets, he has the Patriots atop the AFC East and in position to be considered the AFC's second-best team. 3. Panthers' John Fox: He entered the season on the hot seat and things got considerably warmer when he was forced to suspend his best player (Steve Smith) for the first two games. The Panthers started 2-0, are 7-2 overall and off the radar in terms of Super Bowl threats. No one will pay attention to the Panthers until they face the Giants in late December.


The 10 Worst


10. Saints' Sean Payton: Someone has to take the blame for New Orleans' 4-5 record. I don't have a real problem with Payton. It's impossible to win in the Big Easy. There are just too many distractions in NO to build a successful football franchise.
9. Bengals' Marvin Lewis: The Bengals avoided 0-16 by beating the Jaguars, although 1-15 is a real possibility. Lewis created the Chad Johnson situation. Lewis didn't learn from the Denny Green mess and allowed Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh to take over the Bengals the way Randy Moss and Cris Carter once did the Vikings. Let that be a lesson to any future NFL coaches. Don't let your wide receivers determine the personality of your football team. It cost Denny Green his job in Minny and it's likely to cost Marvin in Cincy.

Not sure how Zorn can be considered No.1 for anything. He took over a playoff team and has them at 6-4.

Not that hard of a thing to accomplish

I'd like to ask why Sparano is not on the list? From 1-15 to a possible playoff team should get you there.

Whitlock and Jeff George played high school ball together. Sparano and the new management as a whole should be on the list. In one season they seemingly changed the whole culture of the franchise. Last year Joey Porter was a bust this year he's in consideration for DPOY.

I'm not sure that any coach in the NFC East has done a very good job aside from Coughlin. Bum's son will always be an awful coach but a good DC. Just like Norv Turner will always be a good OC but a pathetic HC.

I don't want to discredit a good coach doing a good job. Though I think Mike Smith and Sparano have done as good of job as any coaches in the league. Last year both teams were a joke. Both are coaching in competitive divisions also.

I think Singletary might end up making the list as one of the worst coaches by seasons end. Dick Jauron should be on that list.

Before we go crazy let me remind all that the AFC east got a easy enough schedule . It was not one of those brain bashing schedule. this helped afc east teams alot including the patriots.

Say we went 15-1 with this schedule. You'd bemoan the team for winning so many games bc the schedule was favorable?

Yes the teams should've asked Roger Goodell to change the schedule so it'd be much more difficult. Last year they played the NFC East which was much better than it is this year. Can only play the teams that are on the schedule. The Afc West gets an easy schedule because they play each other. Should Denver ask to play New England, Miami, Jets, or Bills twice rather than the Chiefs twice? The NFC West is loaded with San Francisco, Seattle, and the Rams. Arizona should ask to play the NFC East teams twice.

Have to respectfully disagree. How can you possibly not pick Tom Coughlin as #1. He won th SB against all odds and the Giants just keep rolling despite many key injuries. And how can Brad Childress not be one of the worst. His team blew a 15-0 4th qtr. lead and lost to Indy at home, he started TJack instead of Frerrotte, and lost div. game to the Bears by seven due to yeilding two special teams TDs. His team should be 9-3 or 10-2 right now.
