Mike Tomlin, because I love his work on Fox's House. He works so well with Hugh Laurie.

I just want to add that this isnt a thread about firing our coach or who ppl think we shouldve or couldve hired its mainly about who ppl admire as a head coach and what qualities they appriciate in a head coach. that is all

I'm torn between John Harbaugh and Mike McCarthy.

Harbaugh just keeps that team focussed and on track even as that team transitions from a defensive powerhouse to more of an offensive team.

McCarthy has handled the controversy that the Favre situation brought and and helped to ease into the transition into the Aaron Rogers era.

Both have somehow managed to do a great job through some difficult transitions.

for some reason ive always been a jeff fisher fan, he knows how to treat his players with respect as well as get the most out of them.

next on my list would have to be rex ryan, man if you watch hard knocks thats one SOB that would be one of the guys as well as motivate the shit out of players

last but not least i sure like sean payton, and the way he has a way to gameplan for any team and find different ways to win every week.

Tomlin.

The way he stepped in and established his credibility with an organization with as much tradition as the Steelers impressed me.

That and winning a championship doesn't hurt, either.

I like his energy and passion for the game, but he doesn't strike me as a guy who is unhealthy in his pursuit for football success. Just level-headed. I like that about Caldwell, too.

I like Tomlin for same reasons. My vote however is Tom Coughlin. He had a distraction from a top tier RB and moved on with out him. They had all odds against them to beat the Patriots in one of the biggest SB ever. His QB has been critisized more than most QBs and being the younger brother of Peyton FN Manning had more to prove. His team won with all the pressure of New York media and critisism of the league. He has been mocked and joked against but yet he shut them up when they won a SB. Now he is reliving all the same pressure and see how it works out for him.

Sean Peyton is another HC i really like.

Andy Reid, his kids were in and out of jail, smuggling drugs in the cracks of their ass, and trying to commit suicide and he still found time to concentrate on Eagles football and take them to the playoffs all those years.

His family is a mess.

My vote is for Todd Haley. Level headed and never seems to over-react to things on game day. Calm and collected at all times on the sidelines. His players respect him and never has any personality conflicts with them in any way shape or form. :D

Haley in 20 years.........this guy.

I'm not going to go out on a limb and say that's who we need to get. I like Tom Coughlin but think he would be like a Dick Vermiel hire. I'm holding out reserve for likeing Haley, I don't like or dislike him, just want to see major improvement this year, then judge later. So far, Haley doesn't have that big of an ego where he wouldn't hire an assistant HC that on resime could replace him in a heart beat.

I read an article by Mike Garafolo in the Star Ledger -- However, it is what follows the article that caught my eye.

Here is what a Giants fan had to say:

Our O line is old slow and damaged. We don't even have a backup Center.

Our best WR is hurt.

Our TE is hurt and we don't have a quality backup.

Our O Coordinator is confused and disoriented.

Our D line has one end who gets winded walking up a flight of stairs. The other end can only rush the QB, not stop a running back. The middle of our D line has 3 guys coming off injuries and a promising rookie. Oh yea, the great acrobat JPP [AKA= Junior College All Star]

Linebackers? What Linebackers?

CBs are hurting and limping. Kind of hard to keep up with speedy receivers when you can't run.

One Safety and he's a new guy.

A new and inconsistent Punter.

No return guy.

Tynes? Get ready to close your eyes and pray before every field goal attempt.

Our division has the Cowboys and the Eagles. Both teams filled with beasts who absolutley love beating us.

Washington has a ton of talent and one of the best HCs in the game.

It's going to be a very short season.

They have been on a down ward spiral sense there SB. Doesn't look good for as you call Tom Coffin. He may be in a no win situation. He is a coach that should have retired the year after his SB win, lol. I just like how they won that season, not that he is the greatest or any thing. Far from that but still like him as a coach. Doesn't mean I would want him for our coach eather.

I like Jack Del Rio think he is a good coach doesn't mean I want him for our coach. Jeff Fisher, I would like him to be our HC one day.

I give Tomlin props, but you have to admit he had a bit of an amazing team when he took over and led them to a terribly boring super bowl win over a Seahawks team that forgot to compete. Pittsburgh has had the same DC for a long time and I believe their defense has been their staple because of his play calling more so than Tomlin's ability to take a team over from a guy like Cowher. Since that year they've tried to go to a pass first team which I don't agree with at all and by forcing the issue, like so many teams are doing, the better running teams will pass them by.

Other than that my vote goes to Rex Ryan. I think he's one of those rare instances where a coordinator is going to succeed. The Jets defense was terrible the year before he got there, and Vernon Gholston didn't help at all, and Rex brought in his guys, his system, his charisma, and made a pretty damn good team. Other than that, I think Bellichick is past his prime, as are the Patriots, and it shows with the few gifted players they have left trying to carry the rest of the team.

I believe Tomlinson made the transition to more of a passing team out of necessity rather than by choice because of the injuries to RBs.

He started to return more to a running team with Mendenhall last year.

But the fact is, this is now a passer's league.

Teams that can run the ball, but who can't pass the ball are never going to win in this league anymore.

On to other things, if Andy Reid isn't the most overrated coach in the NFL, then Jeff Fisher is.

I haven't seen anyone say it (in this thread - maybe i missed it though) but in the NFC I really, REALLY like Pete Carrol. I think that the Seahawks in a couple seasons will be a powerhouse, and I love what he is doing up there. I'm REALLY glad theyre not in our division any more because I think think theyre gonna be strong for years with him.

Plus I love their draft this year...I think their first couple of picks will be solid starters for years.

:D The sentence about him not cussing was not meant to be taken seriously.
The rest of the post was though. I like how he runs his show old school; how he is the guy his player would want at his back in a dark alley.

Guy leads with his balls and his coaching staff picks up on that. He sets the tone for that organization.
