I don't think this has been a topic yet, but if so, I apologize.

Do you like the nice suit option that NFL coaches now have?

No. It's distracting. It also makes them appear pompous and arrogant.

I like it. It takes some getting used to. Mike Nolan definitely looks out of place. But I hope it catches on.

Distracting to you, a fan?

It sure as hell looks better than someone like Belichick, who looks like an absolute slob, though I'm more than sure you're used to that look.

I think it looks professional.

I always wondered why the coaches stopped doing this. I think it is great.

I like the looks of the suits... The problem is, function over form. Those would be damn hot during the first few weeks of the season.

I like it and if the guy in NE can wear a ripped up piece of crap sweatshirt, why not let someone wear a suit if they like.

You would think the NFL would be all over this... they don't want guys celebrating, you can't wear suits unless it's at home for certain coaches with special exemptions. But, we'll let you wear the most hideous hats and shirts if they have an NFL and sponsor logo.

If the guy wants to wear a suit, wear a suit... it looks good.

Pompous and arrogant? You're a retarded jackass... GC.

I don't think it helps players relate to the head coach at all...just makes him look like a front office stuffed shirt.

Sucks ass. Nolan is an attention whore. LOOK AT ME!!! I'M WEARING AN EXPENSIVE SUIT! OOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

What the gay are you talking about. Some players SHOW UP TO THE GAME in a shirt and tie.

Because we have differing opinions on fashion choices for NFL head coaches? Get a grip.

I'm guessing the players have expensive suits and wouldn't necessarily be alientated by them.

I like the look. Basketball coaches and hockey coaches wear suits all the time. The only sport were the coach/manager shouldn't have to wear one is baseball.

Yup, and yup.

Of course I fall into the category that as long as the coach is getting the job done I don't care if he is wearing nickers and pink socks.

I don't think it should be manditory, but I do think the sweatshirt should'nt be allowed. Business casual, polo shirt at least. Make them look somewhat respectable.

The Suit looks really good, but can you imagine Andy Reid in a suit? ouchie.....
I think it makes the coach look like the boss

I just find it weird that the NFL, a league so worried about appearance ... enzdone celebrations, requires arm twisting to let guys wear a suit. Overall, I agree with Phobia's comment... whatever floats their boat, but it's just funny that it's an issue to "look good".

Great coach, but dumpy looking... looks like he woke up late:

I read somewhere else that Del Rio looked like a kid whose mom forced him to wear a suit. I have to agree.

So Hockey and Baseketball coaches just wear suits to "draw attention" to themselves and look good?

This argument is dumb. I like the look. Very professional.

I don't mind the suit but I don't think they should have to wear it.

I think they actually look out of place amongst all the players on the sidelines,the grass,blood and stuff. :)

I would vote for more dress casual, Kahkis and a Team polo.

I think the hoodie worn by Belichick is a little to casual.

I think they should wear the uniforms like the rest of the team, just like in baseball........shoulder pads and helmet. I'm talking the whole uniform.


in all honesty, I like the suits.

I had often wondered why suits went by the way side. There is absolutely nothing wrong with looking like a professional when you are on the professional level and being paid like one. Not only would I wear a suit on the sideline, I'd make it mandatory that my players arrived at the stadium on game day dressed likewise.

How? Unless they are arriving naked they are getting dressed regardless. I don't see that throwing on slacks and a jacket take up all that much more time.

I think it has to do in large part to the NFL and their deals with sporting wear companies.
