23. Gary Kubiak

Kubiak coached Houston for nine years, had loads of talent, and went to the playoffs twice. Kubiak is a good offensive mind, but a middling head coach at best.

22. Mike McCoy

McCoy has done a decent job with the San Diego Chargers, going 18-14 in two years. McCoynow faces a pivotal Year Three with an aging roster.

21. Rex Ryan

Ryan is basically the exact opposite of Kubiak. The knock on Ryan is he can’t develop quarterbacks, perhaps the worst problem you could have.

20. Ken Whisenhunt

Whisenhunt would have been higher on this list, but he endured a brutal 2-14 season last year with the Tennessee Titans.

19. Chuck Pagano

Pagano has the advantage of Andrew Luck, so that factors in. Regardless, Pagano has made the playoffs in each of his three years at the helm, including making it to the AFC title game last year.

18. Jim Caldwell

I always thought Caldwell was a lousy coach who went to the Super Bowl on Peyton Manning’s coattails. However, Caldwell did a nice job last year with the Detroit Lions, reaching the playoffs. Maybe I was wrong?

17. Jack Del Rio

Del Rio coached the Jaguars nine years and only made the postseason twice. So why so much higher than Kubiak? Look at those teams Del Rio coached. His best quarterback was David Garrard. Del Rio can coach.

16. Chip Kelly

Kelly is the most polarizing coach in all of professional sports. Despite going 20-12 through his first two years, many Philadelphia Eagles

  • 15. Ron Rivera

    Rivera has gotten the Carolina Panthers to the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, both times winning the NFC South. Rivera is also doing it with a mediocre core on offense.

    14. Lovie Smith

    Smith is a good defensive coach, but his offensive acumen is sub-standard. Smith is living off his Super Bowl appearance, because he hasn’t done a ton since. Last year was a mess with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, going 2-14.

    13. Marvin Lewis

    I’m not a Lewis fan. His teams always fall apart in big moments, whether it be primetime games or the postseason. Still, Lewis has made the playoffs each of the past four seasons, so that counts for something.
