Last week, I brought you ESPN’s Top 10 Power Rankings for NFL tight ends, and a majority of you agreed with me that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was snubbed from the list. This week, ESPN put together their Top 10 NFL head coaches, and I don’t think there will be any debate here amongst Patriots fans. Pats Head Coach Bill Belichick was voted the NFL’s top head coach, and it was unanimous. The 2010 NFL Coach of the Year is the only NFL personality thus far to be unanimously voted #1 among the ESPN voters. In the article reviewing the winners, ESPN’s AFC East blogger Tim Graham defended the charge that the Patriots haven’t won anything since Spy Gate.
“That’s true, I suppose, if you don’t consider 51 victories, a .797 win percentage, three division titles and a trip to the Super Bowl not winning anything.”
Pretty well said.
Here is the complete Top 10 list:
1. Bill Belichick, New England Patriots
2. Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers
3. Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles
4. Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers
5. Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints
6. Tom Coughlin, New York Giants
7. Rex Ryan, New York Jets
8. Lovie Smith, Chicago Bears
9. Mike Smith, Atlanta Falcons
10. M. Shanahan, Washington Redskins
10. John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens
