I think it's pretty close this year. But I have to give it to Marvin Lewis(, I mean come on it's the Bengals and they are respectable. I just think it would be cool after being overlooked so many years in his first year on the job getting a deserving Coach of the Year. Ha Bills how is Greg Williams doing for you, errrrr.

Man Bill Belichick is having a heck of a year as well. The Pats has had tons of injury and lost some key players due to the Salary Cap. After losing their first game I thought The Pats would go to a free fall but after that they have lost only one other game and are having a hell of a season... Speaking of hell of a season you have to look at Chiefs and what Dick Vermeil is doing there

You also have to be impressed Parcells, love him or hate him, he took a bad team in a pressure city and turned them around. But The Cowboys lost there last 3 of 4 games so it seems like they are coming back to reality... Andy Reid in Philly and Jeff Fisher in Tennessee are both doing fine jobs for their team.

So who do you think deserves the nod as Coach of the Year. My picks 1) Marvin Lewis. 2)Bill Belichick. 3)Bill Parcells... But man one and two for me are close. Parcells with a slight edge over Vermeil for third.

I agree ... Marvin Lewis has done an outstanding job in Cincy ... he deserves it ...

Someone that I think deserves a mention (not the award necessarily) is Dom Capers ... he's just a player or two away from having a real playoff team down there in Houston.

While I may sound like a homer here I have to go with Belichick. The Pats should be no worst than 13-3 at the end of this year. And the big thing is that he will be 7-0 against teams with winning records. While taking nothing away from what Lweis has done this year he is simply not the best coach in the league right now.

The Pats have had 41 different starters so far this year. Lost both their #1 and #2 receivers for big chunks of the year. Huge losses on Defense with Ted Washinton gone for 6 games and
Rosevelt Colvin for the year (I still think after Vick, Colvin is as big of a lost as any other team has had this year).

Belichick has done this with Rookies, 2nd and 3rd stringers, and with GREAT gameplans. That is why I think he should be Coach of the year.

Too bad he left the Skins, It's obvious his system DOES work, and the Bungles have a less talanted D than the Skins.

Lewis is the clear choice. And I think that you can make a solid argument for Bellichek, Capers, Parcells and (yes) Brian Billick for # 2.

Nationally, I think the Lewis love has gone down a bit since Cincy upset KC.

Gotta go with Belichick...Sherman sure hasn't done anything to deserve it...grrr...

It's a toss up between Blichick and Lewis. IMO, the nod goes to Belichick who took all the turmoil at the start of the season plus a plethora of injuries and put together one Hell of a season. Lewis Two and Verneil three, Parcells four. The smoke and mirrors defense that KC put together amazed me, and Parcells got the most with limited talent.

If the Pats end up with the best record in the AFC, it's gotta be Belichick. If they don't and the Bengals with the AFC North it's gotta be Lewis.

Two guys who haven't been mentioned but I think deserve some credit are Brian Billick (nah, that's ok, I DON'T need a quarterback) and Mike Tice. They can be "Co-Coach of the Year: Teams with Purple Jerseys Division".

Marvin Lewis. How many times was he overlooked for a head coaching job? Not just Tampa, but all the other teams that didn't think he was the right man for the job.

I say Dick Vermeil, Marvin Lewis, or the Panthers coach (whose name escapes me at the moment)

Marvin Lewis for sure, I think, but Vermeil has to be in the conversation.

It's gotta be Belicheck. Who thought the Pats would be where they are, especially with all the injuries earlier in the year.

Marv gets second, while I would say John Fox is third...

I have to jump on the Belichick bandwagon as well. Maybe this year he'll finally get noticed for the job he's done?

Belichick is a great coach, no doubt, and any other year I'd clearly say he should win.

However....the Patriots, with all of their problems and injuries, were still a preseason pick to make the playoffs, and some pundits (i.e. me in my school newspaper column lol) actually picked them to win the AFC. Even in the cases of Vermeil and Parcells, they were taking over teams that had been unsuccessful, but at least had solid nuclei upon which to build.

Marvin Lewis, however, took one of the worst franchises in SPORTS, let alone the NFL, and made them respectable. That is a landmark achievement.

How to Make the Wienerboard a Better Place, Chapter 1: Just because you can't spell "Heidenreich", doesn't make you clever.
No, Simba, it doesn't end with Andy Reid, unless you throw about eight other coaches in there. He's not the second best coach in the league.

My ballot splits first between Belichick and Lewis. If someone pointed a shotgun at my nards, though, and made me choose, I'm'a say Lewis, but Belichick is really 1A. Credit to John Fox, but not a TON of credit... that goes to the GM for signing Stephen Davis (the only reason I'd fear the Redskins when they had him). Capers gets some dap too, and he probably would've last year, as well.

Calvin: You could look at it that way, or say they're only 4-2 (I believe) against teams with losing records... the ones they SHOULD beat. I wouldn't, but I could say that if I wanted to.

Yeah you could say that. To be fair though, many thought Buffalo would be a playoff team this year, plus opening day you had the whole Milloy thing going on. Guess that's what happens when a team peaks in week 1.

I don't see all the love for Bill Belichick...yes, he's got his team playing incredibly well right now, but this is more or less the same team that won the Super Bowl two years ago. You've gotta expect a solid season at the very least from them.

If Cincinnati stays strong through the end of the year, it has to go to them. They didn't look good against Baltimore last week, but if they can bounce back and finish strong, Marvin Lewis is your man. That team was the punchline to a bad joke for how many seasons now, yet almost overnight they're a legit contender for a division title? Amazing. If they crap out and finish below .500, though, maybe it's not so automatic.

Three weeks ago I would have said Bill Parcells is right there with Lewis, but the Cowboys have come back to earth in a big way the last couple of weeks. Looks like they were just playing over their heads early this year as opposed to being a legitimately strong team.

Dom Capers? Nah. He's got a competitive team in that the Texans are in a lot of games, but they were in a lot of games last year as well. They were a team that didn't win much but never really got blown out either. They're still at that point, which tells me they haven't made all that much progress this year. A serviceable job from Capers, but nothing outstanding.

At this point, I say give it to Lewis, but there are still three weeks worth of games left. How teams on the bubble finish says as much about a coach as how much he gets out of them over the first 16 weeks.



The Toronto Maple Leafs are built for the playoffs. Of course they are. What Leafs fans don't realize, though, is "built for the playoffs" is just GM-speak for "short on skill, kinda slow, and can't score over an 80 game season".
