Power Rankings: Worst 10 Coaches in NFL
Power Rankings: Worst 10 Coaches in NFL
When people usually do a top ten list, it’s usually for the best, but this time it isn’t the case. These rankings are mine and my opinion but if you have a different order, I would love to see and or hear yours. Also I see these coaches unlikely coaching next year for their current team.
It also shows that the NFL has actually become a league of parity for at least this year. There are currently 17 teams at .500 or better with 10 more that could reach it by years end it is unlikely most will make it, but anything’s possible in the NFL.
All and all, it’s shaping up to be an interesting last quarter of the regular season where anything can and usually does happen. Some teams have easy end of season schedules, and yet some have tougher roads into the 2012 playoffs.
While some of the division races have been decided, there are some that are wide open; same with the wild card spots in each conference is up for grabs.
As for the bottom 10 teams according to my power rankings I see the least hope, but that’s just my take, what do you all think? Let me know!

I will discuss this article or anything else you’d like football related! Have a great day!
#10 Jim Schwartz
Of all the coaches on this not so prestigious list, Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions is the safest in my mind, however that being said the Ford family will not put up with long-term losing. Let alone the fact is that offense has so much firepower it's scary.
#9 Pat Shurmur
I would have given Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur another year, however there is a new owner and president which usually means a new coach especially if they can't win.
#8 Norv Turner
Norv Turner of the San Diego Chargers has already been announced that he will not return for 2013, same with general manager A.J. Smith. It will be interesting whom the select as Turner's replacement.
#7 Mike Munchak
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak and his team has regressed significantly this season, their defense has allowed 111 more points than they have scored. Titans owner Bud Adams might give him one more year to focus on the defense in the off-season and the draft, but who knows.
#6 Ken Whisenhunt
The Arizona Cardinals were one of the hottest teams in the NFL to start the season with a 4-0 record, however they have fell to the Earth like a ton of bricks since then losing the last eight. Ken Whisenhunt's future might be in jeopardy since he's given quarterback after quarterback an opportunity and it seemed like the only one that had any success was Kurt Warner, and he's not walking through that door anytime soon.
#5 Ron Rivera
There has been so much expectation after Ron Rivera was hired as he was another member of the stoic 1985 Chicago Bears team to get a coaching gig in the NFL, along with Leslie Frazier and Mike Singletary. Even drafting a franchise quarterback in the way of Cam Newton hasn't helped, in fact it seems like teams have figured him out and the panthers have taken a step backwards.
#4 Dennis Allen
I'll be as kind as I can since I know Coach Allen is currently going through a bad time with his father passing. That being said, it always seems like Oakland Raiders head coaches are doomed to fail because the Davis Family is so hands on, it always makes you really wonder who controls the play calling game in and game out. Long term this team looks bleak as well since they trade draft picks and players like it's candy and it has hurt them since last making the playoffs in 2002.
#3 Andy Reid
From making the NFC title game four straight years to the abyss, that's what the Philadelphia Eagles have been lately under coach Andy Reid. Coach Reid looks extremely burnt out and he will not be back next year in the city of brotherly love and that might be for the best, maybe down the road he can come back, however it shouldn't be anytime in the next two years.
#2 Romeo Crennell
Going through the most horrific display in recent memory last Saturday, it was beyond amazing that the Kansas City Chiefs pulled out a win. Romeo Crennell I will be sensitive to as he witnessed the tragedy, however his Chiefs look insanely out coached as they have only had run an offensive play with the lead in three games this year, changes seem imminent.
#1 Mike Mularkey
As I know this guy from his time with the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey looks awful. His coaching style is just juvenile to be kind, I mean in a driving rain storm last week in Buffalo, he had quarterback Chad Henne pass the ball 42 times, in comparison the Bills ran the ball 50 times last week. The Jaguars should just count their losses and move on and spend some serious money on a good coach.
