The Falcons are well represented but the list should also include Norm(run run pass punt) van Broklin. Petrino get a bad rap but it should really be placed on Blank. After not being able to find a coach, he finally relented and got one that he would let clean house.  The fact that Vick got rid of himself only helped. Essentially, the inmates were running the asylum and Blank was on their side against the coach.

2011 eh?
 
2012-12-26 06:11:45 PM
Slideshow?  No thanks.
 
2012-12-26 06:24:13 PM
A year old and a fifty-click slide show?  I think not.
 
2012-12-26 06:56:39 PM
Thank you for making sure Rich Kotite was on that list near the top. Along with Wade Phillips the man should never be allowed near an NFL team ever for the rest of his life.

Subby used a Bleacher Report link. That's bad and you should feel bad, subby.
 
2012-12-26 07:02:26 PM

Nadie_AZ: 2011 eh?


Didn't even notice until I got to Romeo. The list seems really, really arbitrary, too.
 
2012-12-26 07:03:19 PM
Have the subby and modmin responsible for this been chained in a dungeon and forced to watch Art Shell reactions yet?
 
2012-12-26 07:06:22 PM
The Brad Childress slide (number 49) is almost entirely inaccurate.
 
2012-12-26 07:07:26 PM

Nadie_AZ: 2011 eh?


Yeah, Romeo really deserves to be higher considering his recent work with the Chiefs.

I'm placing submitter in the 50 worst submitters of all time.
 
2012-12-26 07:13:30 PM
Rod Rust is missing from that list.  Along with Clive Rush & Johnny Mazur.   But it has how many current coaches that are better?
 
2012-12-26 07:14:28 PM
only 4 Raiders coaches?

and I say that as a Raiders fan.

Chupacabra Sandwich: I'm placing submitter in the 50 worst submitters of all time.


This. I think Les Steckel designed that slideshow.

Irving Maimway: Thank you for making sure Rich Kotite was on that list near the top. Along with Wade Phillips the man should never be allowed near an NFL team ever for the rest of his life.


Wade Phillips is a damn good Defensive Coor. He's just a mediocre head coach.
 
2012-12-26 07:23:04 PM
Subby's link is bad and he should feel bad!
 
2012-12-26 07:24:05 PM
A 50 page slldeshow from Blecher Report. fark you subby.

/Just say no to BR
//And to slideshows
 
2012-12-26 07:25:00 PM
Is Saban on the list?
 
2012-12-26 07:26:15 PM

Sin_City_Superhero: Slideshow?  No thanks.



Seriously. Break out the ban hammer.
 
2012-12-26 07:28:11 PM
Down for maintenance.
 
2012-12-26 07:29:23 PM
This list fails without George Seifert.

Ah, memories of my childhood as a Buccaneer local.

John McKay started from nothing with the Tampa Bay Bucs in 1976-"nothing" as in, he had a winless team that year.  He made the playoffs three times in his eight year career, but only won one playoff game, and has won only 33 percent of games in his long career.

Yup, McKay lost twice as many games as he won. That's not good.
 
2012-12-26 07:32:59 PM

the biggest redneck here: Is Saban on the list?


Don't ya know it? He should be top 5 but only made Sweet 16. His Offensive Mentor Cam Cam-sharee finally made the top of some list. LOTS of Fin coaches represented.
 
2012-12-26 07:33:18 PM
Hard to believe that Isiah Thomas isn't on the list. Yeah, I know he's basketball, but he's bad enough to do collateral damage to a completely different league.
 
2012-12-26 07:40:33 PM
As a Broncos fan let me say fark you McDaniels and fark you BR.

Double fark to Josh McD.
 
2012-12-26 07:53:48 PM
First off, Subby is bad and should feel bad for that slide show. Secondly, an even bigger fail goes to the writer that decided to omit Les Steckel.
 
2012-12-26 07:57:56 PM
52 slides?

Go sell weak sports blogs somewhere else, assmitter.

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: only 4 Raiders coaches?

and I say that as a Raiders fan.


You can count Art Shell twice.

I really didn't mean for that to be a fat joke, but it kinda works that way too.
 
2012-12-26 08:09:22 PM
Wait, was Norv Turner not on the list?
 
2012-12-26 08:10:09 PM
Stupid, stupid list. The author focused almost entirely on results ("he went 2-14!") and barely at all on whether a coach maximized/minimized the talent on his team.

If this list were written in 2000, the author would probably have included Bill Belichick, whose career record at that point was 41-55.
 
2012-12-26 08:20:52 PM
Fail Tag goes to the people who acknowledge these lists in general.

Captain Dan: Stupid, stupid list. The author focused almost entirely on results ("he went 2-14!") and barely at all on whether a coach maximized/minimized the talent on his team.


No kidding...Ditka should have won at least three straight Super Bowls.
 
2012-12-26 08:24:23 PM
It's weird how the overwhelming majority of the all-time worst coaches are from the last 20 years. Standards must have really declined.
 
2012-12-26 08:26:45 PM
Evidently there was only one bad coach in the NFL prior to 1973, as every one of these coaches but one was from '73 onward.  Wow, all those years, all those teams, and only one bad coach.
 
2012-12-26 08:32:36 PM
Positive: including Jim Mora, Jr. on the list.

Negative: apparently being unaware that Mora Jr. also coached the Seahawks once.

Taking his Seahawks tenure into consideration would have bumped him up the list. He did some serious damage to that franchise and it's a minor miracle that they've been able to recover as fast as they have under Pete Carroll. Hint: throwing two different players under the bus in press conferences is not a way to build morale. (He even looked like a failure in his post-firing potshots -- when they signed Charlie Whitehurst and he commented "I've never heard of him" in an interview, I'm sure he thought he was smugly dissing the organization, but he was also prompting questions about how the hell someone who worked in the NFL for a living had never heard of a QB who was a recent third-round pick.)

The silver lining of the Mora experience in Seattle is that if he hadn't taken the Seahawks job, he probably would have gotten the UW job that he had openly pined for while in Atlanta. He may yet be a good college coach -- year 1 at UCLA seems promising -- but I could not live with myself rooting for that asshole.

This list includes almost every head coach the Buffalo Bills have had since Marv Levy in 97.

Add Mike Mularkey and Chan Gailey (both deserving in their own right), and that'll be all of them.

Of course, the real problem is Ralph Wilson who keeps hiring these mediocre, overly conservative, unproven head coaches.

The Bills haven't been a good team over the past decade-plus, but they've had some decent talent in those years, and certainly would have won significantly more games if they didn't suffer from consistently terrible coaching.

Marty Mornhinweg is 27 spots too low on this list. He should automatically be #1 for A) Being a Lions coach and B) Having the bright idea to elect to kick after winning the OT coin toss.
 
2012-12-26 08:48:41 PM
Oh and here's a more recent list Bleacher posted: Link

I've hated Saban since he skipped out on the Dolphins. Still can't root for Alabama since he took over there.

Give Marty some credit, he went from a mediocre high school to the pros in one jump.

Jim Zorn is coaching with the Chiefs now. That explains a lot.

KiwDaWabbit: Ditka


Nevermind how awful he was in New Orleans, along with TRADING EVERY FARKING DRAFT PICK IN 1999 to acquire a RUNNING BACK.

Holy crap it's like that actually did something resmbling research as opposed to the dreck subby tried to inflict on us.

/Honestly subby, a year old slideshow from BR?
 
2012-12-26 09:25:54 PM
Is it a Ryan trifecta near the top? Or the bottom? Whichever way...
