NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger had the honor of compiling the “Best in the Biz” list of NFL head coaches Monday on NFL Total Access, and he put three-time Super Bowl winner Bill Belichick at the top.
Keep in mind that Baldinger’s list isn’t confined only to head coaches:
1. Bill Belichick, Patriots
2. Sean Payton, Saints
3. Andy Reid, Eagles
4. Rex Ryan, Jets
5. Alex Gibbs, Seahawks
Clearly, this list omits a number of names. I have no doubt you guys will sound off on that below.
Jamie Dukes threw out Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, to which Baldinger admitted he “pulled hair out of my head” over that choice at No. 5. There’s also the omission of LeBeau’s boss, Mike Tomlin.
But the list is just five coaches long.
