Nov 10, 2013; San Diego, CA, USA; San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy calls for a holding call on an end zone play in the second half against the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium.

Coach:

I am shocking myself with the amount of times I am giving Marvin the advantage over his counterpart, but with 10+ years of experience as a head coach and an overall 86-84-1 record (.506), I have to give Lewis the advantage over a rookie coach like Mike McCoy who is 5-6 in his rookie year and has 1 year of NFL Offensive Coordinator success – 2012, the year he had Peyton Manning. In 2010, McCoy’s offense was ranked 13th; in 2011 23rd; then he gets Manning and his offense is ranked 4th and he gets a HC gig? All I can say is that if I was an OC with Peyton Manning as my QB, I too would look good (and therefore get a HC gig)…because Manning is the OC. Mike McCoy ought to be sending very nice Christmas gifts to Peyton Manning.

Advantage: Bengals
