jeff fisher Top Ten 10 NFL Head coaches of 2008Mad’Nuff Weekly top 10

From now on Each week I will bring you my top 10 Whatever, it could my top ten sports teams or my top 10 sports drinks, who knows,  This week I will give you the top 10 head coaches for 2008 in the NFL.


1.       Jeff Fisher

Gets the top spot for what he is doing with the Titans right now he knows how to give his team the best chance to win.  They are not the most talented team in the league by a long shot but with Jeff Fisher running the team defense first, run second, manage third the Titans are guaranteed a top seed in the AFC playoffs this year.

2.       Bill Belichick

I hate this guy and he is clearly a cheater in my eyes but he is still a pretty good coach, no one in the league schemes a team like Belichick does and I mean no one.

3.       Andy Reid

Andy Reid and his famous offense are what keep the Eagles winning year after year the Eagles never have any #1 wideouts but always mange to put up large offensive number, mostly in part because of the excellent offensive packages he has.

4.       Mike Tomlin

Mike is the head coach of one of the NFL’s most historic teams and he is only 36 years old, he has taken a team that was .500 before he came to the playoffs in his first year, and it seems like this year the Steelers will be a top seed in the Playoffs.  Mike’s willingness to bend just enough for the sake of his coordinators helps him keep his team winning

5.       Eric Mangini

Mangenius is just that; a genius when it comes to coaching if he could beat his mentor more often he might be higher on the list.  There is not a coach in the league that is able to win as much as Mangini with as little talent.  The Jets are one of the most unimpressive teams when it comes to talent but Mangini has the schemes to turn losers into winners….kind of.

6.       Tom Coughlin

From tough as nails to the players coach Coughlin has turned the Giants into a true football team.  He has managed to get rid of egos, and distractions to get his team focused on one goal another Superbowl.  Many coaches find it hard to keep a team focused after they have won it all but Coughlin knows how to manage players and keep them focused better than any coach in the league.

7.       Jeff Fox

Jeff had caught a few tough breaks in his tenure in Carolina but this year he is showing people what he can do when all the guys he needs to run his system are healthy, he needs a big win this year in the playoffs or he may not make the next list because he will no longer be a head coach.

8.       John Gruden

Chucky, the guy is a maniac but he knows how to win with anybody at the helm.  John Gruden is one of the best at putting his individuals players in the best position to win, it doesn’t matter whether or not it is a quarter back, running back, or wideout John will make you succeed if you are starting for him.

9.       Tony Dungy

The man invented the Tampa cover 2, it is still one of the most effective defenses this year.  With his team reeling he seems poised to earn this spot in the top ten by squeaking off enough games to get a hurt and battered team to the playoffs.

10.   Ken Whisenhunt

The guy is winning in Arizona hell Obama couldn’t even do that.   Whisenhunt is an offensive genius and again anytime you can come out on top as the head coach of the Cardinals you have to be pretty good.


Magic Gone for Indy

In watching the Colts play on Monday it is official that they are not the same team that they used to be.  After being the dominant team in the league for 5 years they are on the down turn.   Usually Peyton finds a way to win games like the one played on Monday night.  He calls some of his assistants to help him conjure up some magic and lead his team to victory.   This time they started off with a view tricks that impressed the crowd, but then, yes my friends the magic died.   Peyton reached into his hat but came out with nothing, no help from his supporting cast no nothing.  He was on stage by himself the second act of the show and it showed, Peyton is still the same he can still read the defense and make the throws, but his assistants not so much.   The Colts need to go back to the drawing board and figure out what they need to do change the way they are playing, it starts with figuring out a way to bring back the magic.   I suggest a call to David Blaine.

Indianapolis Colts’ Loss at Green Bay Drops their Record to 3-3

This may be a season where Tony Dungy won't have any answers.

This may be a season where Tony Dungy has no answers.

The Indianapolis Colts have proven to be an up-and-down team this season. They have lost a close game to the Jaguars at home, have had to pull off 4th quarter comebacks to beat the Vikings and the Texans (which was a wild one-in-a-thousand type comeback), and have been blown out by a pair of NFC North teams in the Bears and Packers. There only convincing win has come against a team they usually beat and who was sporting a rookie quarterback in the Ravens.

Manning is suffering through his worst completion percentage since he was a rookie at 60.7%, has 8 TDs w/ 7 INTs, with an 80 rating.

In the past the Colts have been able to get away with torrid defense because they had a strong run game to back up their passing attack. However, this year their running game has been downright terrible. They are averaging an even 70 yards per game on the ground which is last in the league. Oppositely, they are 29th on defense against the run in giving up 153.5 yards per game.

This is not the stuff of a recent Super Bowl champion, even if they do not have Bob Sanders who vaulted them to that title in the 06 playoffs. One would think that by now they could at least play average defense seeing as how experienced their unit is, but that has not been the case this season.

This has been one of the weirdest teams to follow so far and with their second toughest schedule based on opponents’ winning percentages the year prior, the future seems bleak… bleak as in no playoffs.
