McVay inherited a team that was a laughingstock for a decade-plus and hadn't been to the playoffs in 12 years. In five years, he's made the playoffs four times, won three division titles, two conference championships and a Super Bowl.
Despite that, you don't seem to think much of him. It's been established you don't think much of Tomlin. Who, exactly, in your opinion is good?
Would you give him credit for the defense in that Superbowl? Only asking as that is the point I responded to? The guy is an offensive head coach who lets his D-Coordinator run that side of the ball, there is nothing wrong with that, but we shouldn't credit him for the defensive game plan in the LIII.
And I said he was good. I just pointed out that he had three all-pros on his roster this year to go along with mid-season pick-ups Von Miller and OBJ and lots of talent on that roster that I am too casual of a fan to know. If they did not win the Superbowl, this season was a failure.
I tend to look at coaches based on their team's performance vs. their talent. You mentioned my opinion of Tomlin and historical his teams are talented but have a tendency to play down to the competition. McVay has a strong track record over a SSS and during that time his roster has been great, but to be fair he has done a great job of scheming good plays for a not-great QB in Goff, and that is very impressive. Before I crown him as a great coach, I want to see how he does with an aging roster that no longer has top talent at a lot of positions.
With all that said, looking at the list I quickly put together I would put him in the top 5 right now.
(I am always amazed at how quickly teams go through coaches. Only 5 coaches were hired before 2017, 10 before 2019 )
Who do I think is good? Well BB has clearly ruined my opinion of other coaches but:
1 - BB
2 - Reid
3 - Harbaugh
4 - Vrabel
5 - McVay
6 - LeFleur
7 - Shanahan
8 - Tomlin
9 - Carrol
10 - McDermott
11 - Reich
12 - Taylor
13 - Staley
Sorry for somehow taking this thread off of Brady and onto coaches.
