My Big NFL 5: Coaches

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

We have made it out of the players part of my segment, and now we move on to the guys who make it possible for the players to be on these lists, the NFL head coaches. These guys are the ones that call the plays, help draft players, help pick up players from free agency. Each yeah, they try to get their team to the Super Bowl, but if you keep missing the playoffs, then upper management will have no hesitation to fire you. So, here are my guys that have forever been known for keeping really good teams year in and year out:

5. Bill Belichick (Browns/Patriots)
He is the NFL’s current longest tenures coach for a single team, and Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a good reason. He has led his New England Patriots team to 5 Super Bowls, winning three of them. He has put together 10 straight 10+ win seasons. In 2007, he led the Patriots to an undefeated regular season, got them all the way to the Super Bowl, and lost to the Giants. Belichick still has plenty left, and could win another Super Bowl or two. If he ever retires, he will, without a doubt, be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

4. John Madden (Raiders)
A lot of us know him for the video games named after him, or as the famous color commentator, but he used to be a head coach, and boy was he a good one. In ten years with the Oakland Raiders, John Madden’s winning percentage is 2nd in NFL history. He is the youngest coach to ever reach 100 wins, which included a Super Bowl win against the Vikings. He still has the most wins as a head coach in the very rich history of the Raiders and is the only head coach in NFL history to never have a losing season.
