Bad Coaching in the NFL



Six weeks in and I already have a week 6 rant. ---

It's called Bad Coaching in the NFL.

• Jets coach Rex Ryan, who talks a lot, and talks tough. The irritating thing is he talks like he’s done something. Watching the end of the Jets/Buffalo game was like getting a root canal.

• Washington coach Jim Zorn. Are you the coach? Because if you’re the coach and your boss takes away your job calling the plays… you’re not the coach.

• Pats coach Bill Belicheat. I don’t care how cool you think you are. When you are up 52-0 and you leave your QB in to throw another TD, you are begging for an injury. How many Super Bowls since you got caught cheating? Oh ya, zero.

• Cowboy coach Wade Phillips. Why are you on the list on your bye week? That’s how bad a coach you are. I’m actually surprised you didn’t find a way to blow your bye week and get yourself in a football game.

Vikings coach Brad Childress should be on the list but he’s already on the “Coach of the luckiest team in the NFL” list. That’s ok, the "should be 4-2 instead of 6-0" Vikings are about to lose 2 in a row.

NFL Coach of the year so far? 49ers Coach Mike Singletary or Saints coach Shawn Payton who clearly has the best team in the NFC.

Who needs a hug? Titans coach Jeff Fisher, whose team quit on him during the 59-0 rout.
