good list 126..Gibbs is the best...one correction would be to put belichick higher, especially after he collects his second ring in a few weeks

I know that Gibbs is a great coach but after 11 years of not coaching I dont think I would put right at the top. I would also take Bill Belichick over Gruden, Vermeil and Billick of course I might a little biased ;)

Speaking of Vermeil, he didn't seem to have a problem adjusting to the FA era...Gibbs won't either. He's got the Midas touch, Gibbs probably ****s gold:lol:

I think Dungy should be in the top 10 an Wanny(just playing) I like Dungy he has been good for both teams he has coached for you cannot say that about most coaches. An my suprise pick is Dom Capers he has been for the texas they showed me alot this year they will be even better next year. He also done good for the panthers he had them ready for the playoffs after a couple of years he could do the same for the texas.

John Fox is in his second year at Carolina.

Gibbs hasn't coached in 11 or so years and has yet to coach in the salary cap era. No way he's #1.

Gruden did a bang-up job in Tampa this year (7-9), finishing three games behind Dave Wannstedt (10-6). The NFL adjusted to his offense in Tampa. He didn't react.

I also believe Dom Capers should be higher.

My Quick Top 5

1. Belichick
2. Parcells
3. Fisher
4. Vermeil
5. Reid

Parcells would be at the top with Gibbs within the top 5. I would wait to see how he can handle the game today as compared to 15 years ago before annointing him #1. I would also rate higher Holmgren and Schottenheimer although their teams have not had much success lately as compared to other teams in the NFL. Seattle will be more improved after coming off a playoff appearance and the situation in San Diego is a total mess.

Muck, Gibbs is a legend.........I had no idea he was available.....If I did, I would have been ranting and raving like all of other Wanny Haters...

4 super bowl appearances, 3 championships.....and the greatest winning % of any coach in history.......

That guy is god.

I know all about Gibbs. But he's been out of the game 11 years. No way in hell a guy comes leaves for over a decade and is automatically the best coach in the league. Especially when he coached exclusively in the non-salary cap era.

He could certainly get back to elite status. But it's not wise to annoint him above all others the day he gets hired. Not when Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick are doing what they're doing right now.

But it took him three years to do it. The first two years, the Rams absolutely sucked. I also won't be suprised if Gibbs can clean house in Washington which they absolutely need to make the playoffs. It would also help Gibbs if that weasel Snyder would stay out of his business. Gibbs is certainly in a better situation than what Vermeil had to go through. He is a great coach, but the best that I can rate him is within the top 5 even though he hasn't coached in 11 years, not at #1.
