1. Belicheck--has to be in the top 5 coaches of all time.
2. Coughlin--Jacksonville was good way back under Coughlin, nothing since, Giants 2 Super Bowl wins--beat Belicheck twice.
3. Harbaugh---he has to win a Super Bowl though to stay at # 3.
4. McCarthy or Payton--the other being # 5.
John Harbaugh and the Atlanta coach, Kubiak, Fisher in St Louis, Shanahan round out the top 10.
Coughlin turned an expansion team into a contender.
Harbaugh has had the Midas tough everywhere he's ever been a head coach.
McCarthy has been pretty good.
Payton has proven his importance to the Saints.
All of those coaches have been good everywhere they've ever been; EXCEPT for Belichick, who had a losing record with the Browns, and a losing season with the Patriots the year before Brady. And then there was spy-gate. But he had that one year with Matt Cassel, so ya, that obviously proves he's better than all of those other coaches who have won everywhere they have ever been.
