McCarthy does not belong up there. They have a great amount of talent and a truly special talent at QB, but overall I think he makes bad decisions from time to time, and they don't seem to be able to change their gameplans on the fly. If they are not able to pass at will, they lose.
I am not saying he is a bad coach or anything, he is still one of the better ones, but not in the other guys range
